"I Like the Way" as written by and Nicholas Lofton Hexum Chad Sexton....
I like the way you keep it from me, woah
I like the way you move in front of me, yeah
Just enough contact to make me come back
So many other girls just make my mind slack
And I like the way you give it to me, yeah

You're in front, I'm behind
Walking down a corridor
The way you're moving yourself
That makes me want you more

I like the way you keep it from me, yeah

Baby, are we ready
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Can we rock steady
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Baby, are we ready
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Can we rock steady
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

I like the way you keep it from me, woah
I like the way you move in front of me, yeah
Just enough contact to make me come back
So many other girls just make my mind slack
And I like the way you give it to me, yeah

Tight jeans and the seams
Snake around your body tight
The way they hug, the way they snug
The way they fit you right

I like the way you keep it from me, yeah

Baby, are we ready
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Can we rock steady
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Baby, are we ready
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah (it's just enough contact to make me come back)
Can we rock steady
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah (so many other girls just make my mind slack)

Our rods and cones have a mind of their own
They keep on staring at you and want to get you alone
You got that sun dress mess yes that's the best
With the flower two piece underneath so fresh
I get a head full of bee's when you're in the vicinity
I cannot stop but thinking 'bout infinity
I get a thrill, you kill me with vernaculars
Speak your mind at fine in kind is spectacular

I asked her if she
Would come away with me
She said are you crazy
I said I must be
Now you know
Now we both know
I guess you're right we should just move it slow
I was hooked on a feeling
You were so right to put on the brakes
That's how I know you got what it takes, uh

I like the way you keep it from me, woah
I like the way you move in front of me, yeah
Just enough contact to make me come back
So many other girls just make my mind slack
And I like the way you give it to me, yeah

Baby, are we ready
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah (it's just enough contact to make me come back)
Can we rock steady
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah (so many other girls just make my mind slack)
Baby, are we ready
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah (it's just enough contact to make me come back)
Can we rock steady
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah (so many other girls just make my mind slack)

    General CommentThis isn't one of 311's deepest songs. It's simply about a girl. It's a pretty self-explanatory song and seems to be a song that tries to please the fans they got from "love song" and "amber". It's just another rock track to make em come back.

    I was hooked on a feeling

    General CommentPretty much about a girl who's a tease. But all I've gotta to say is SA's voice..holy shit it is incredibly high in a head voice.
