"I Do Not Hook Up" as written by Greg Wells, Kara Dioguardi and Katy Perry....
Oh, sweetheart, put the bottle down
You've got too much talent
I see you through those bloodshot eyes
There's a cure, you've found it
Slow motion, sparks, you've caught that chill
Now don't deny it, but boys will be boys, oh, yes, they will
They don't wanna define it
Just give up the game and get into me
If you're looking for thrills then get cold feet

Oh, no, I do not hook up, up, I go slow
So if you want me, I don't come cheap
Keep your hand in my hand, your heart on your sleeve
Oh, no, I do not hook up, up, I fall deep
'Cause the more that you try the harder I'll fight to say goodnight

I can't cook, no, but I can clean
Up the mess she left
Lay your head down and feel the beat
As I kiss your forehead
This may not last but this is now
So love the one you're with
You wanna chase but you're chasin' your tail
A quick fix won't ever get you well

Oh, no, I do not hook up, up, I go slow
So if you want me, I don't come cheap
Keep your hand in my hand, your heart on your sleeve
Oh, no, I do not hook up, up, I fall deep
'Cause the more that you try the harder I'll fight to say

'Cause I feel, the distance
Between us, could be over
With the snap of your finger, Oh, no!

Oh, no, I do not hook up, up, I go slow
So if you want me, I don't come cheap
Keep your hand in my hand, your heart on your sleeve
Oh, no, I do not hook up, up, I fall deep
'Cause the more that you try the harder I'll fight
To say, 'cause the more that you try the harder I'll fight, to say goodnight

Oh, sweetheart, put the bottle down
'Cause you don't wanna miss out

    General CommentIf you want to really FEEL this song and power of these words, you should listen to Gaslight Anthem cover performed at BBC Live Lounge:

    General CommentBeautifulbreakdown & sohelpmeemo:

    I think the video is showing the shallowness and lack of substance these hookups have. it blurs out at the beginning and end of each hookup scene, so it's like she thinks about what would happen if she were to just get with these guys and how she would have to act out of character just for things to go somewhere, then she snaps out of it and realises she is better off NOT looking for a one time thing.

    General Commenti love this song.
    "this may not last but this is now so love the one youre with."... that says it all.
    if you want in, then you're in. if not, then you're out. there's no in between and you cant worry about if it will work or not... just live for the moment.

    General CommentKaty Perry's version is better. I can't believe she changed the lyrics to make it all G-Rated. Kelly Clarkson had something good going on with My December...now she's just generic pop again

    General CommentThe reason she recorded this was because Katy thought it would be weird to have "I Kissed A Girl" and then "I Do Not Hook Up" on the same album.

    massivetidalwave has a point. I mean I don't really like how this album is all pop but shes still good. I also feel like she was hit way higher notes. Her album doesn't really show off her talent as well as My December and Breakaway did. But I still love her.
