"Lay It Down" as written by Peter Andreas Moren, John Thomas Daniel Eriksson and Bj�rn Daniel Arne Yttling....
Hey, shut the fuck up boy
You are starting to piss me off
Take your hands off that girl
You have already had enough

Hey, shut the fuck up boy
You are starting to piss me off
Take your hands off that girl
You have already had enough

You sure can get it up
At least that's what you say
You don't know how to stop
You just can't walk away

And when we saw her face
You said she's something else
I know you just can't wait
It's more than I can take

You just can't play it down [Repeat: x2]
You just gotta lay it down

Hey, shut the fuck up boy
You are starting to piss me off
Take your hands off that girl
You have already had enough

Hey, shut the fuck up boy
You are starting to piss me off
Take your hands off that girl
You have already had enough


It's getting hard to see
Through all our history
I guess it's in your blood
On that we can agree

And when we saw her face
I said she's something else
She was your only hope
And still you let her down

You just can't play it down [Repeat: x2]
You're just gonna let her down

Hey, shut the fuck up boy
You are starting to piss me off
Take your hands off that girl
You have already had enough

Hey, shut the fuck up boy
You are starting to piss me off
Take your hands off that girl
You have already had enough

Hey, shut the fuck up boy
You are starting to piss me off
Take your hands off that girl
You have already had enough

    General CommentSounds like common jealousy, alcohol-induced anger over a guy getting a girl the lyricist wants. Maybe there is a lack of alcohol, but this is the kind of tirade I would expect from a drunk dude at a bar or a party somewhere.

    General CommentYes I agree. I think maybe the lyricist is the friend of this guy who has the girl. Maybe they met her at the same time, and both liked her, but the other guy got her. Now he sees his friend not taking care of this girl the way he would. My favorite part of the whole song:
    "And when we saw her face
    I said she's something else
    She was your only hope
    And still you let her down"

    Although I love when he says "hey shut the fuck up boy too" :)

    General Commenttwo guy friends (singer is one of them) see this pretty girl at a party or something like that, are attracted to her. the friend just wants to get with her. the singer gets upset because he thinks she's special and he would take care of her while the friend just messes with her and sees her as "special" as in hot.
