"She Wolf" as written by Shakira Isabel Mebarak Ripoll, John Hill and Sam Endicott....
S-O-S she is in disguise
S-O-S she is in disguise
There's a she wolf in disguise,
Coming out, coming out, coming out

A domesticated girl that's all you ask of me,
Darling it is no joke, this is lycanthropy
Moon's awake now, with eyes wide open
My body is craving, so feed the hungry

I've been devoting myself to you
Monday to Monday
And Friday to Friday
Not getting enough retribution
Or decent incentives to keep me at it
Starting to feel just a little abused
Like a coffee machine in an office (ahoo)
So I'm gonna go somewhere closer
To get me a lover and tell you about it

There's a she wolf in the closet,
Open up and set her free (ahoo)
There's a she wolf in the closet,
Let it out so it can breath

Sitting across the bar, staring right at her prey,
It's going well so far, she's gonna get her way
Nocturnal creatures are not so prudent,
The moon's my teacher, and I'm her student

To locate the single man
I've got on me a special radar,
And the fire department's hot line
in case I get in trouble later
Not looking for cute little divas
Or rich city guys that just want to enjoy
I'm having a very good time
and behave very bad in the arms of a boy

There's a she wolf in the closet
Open up and set her free (ahoo)
There's a she wolf in the closet
Let it out so it can breath

S-O-S she is in disguise
S-O-S she is in disguise
There's a she wolf in disguise
Coming out, coming out, coming out

S-O-S she is in disguise
S-O-S she is in disguise
There's a she wolf in disguise
Coming out, coming out, coming out

There's a she wolf in the closet
Let it out so it can breath

    General CommentI'd like to think she's using lycanthropy as sexual desire, based on the way she puts it.

    She's in a relationship with someone who appears to be holding her down; 'putting her in a closet'. But like wolves, they can't really be tamed, always wild, so she longs to be set free. This relationship she's in she wants to break out of and essentially find some 'fresh meat'.

    Like a wolf, she associates hunting with looking for guys. The song simply states that she doesn't want to be 'domestic' but wild and free with no relationship.

    General CommentAlright, so obviously I agree that the song is terrific and that the howling is great, but as for the actual 'deeper meaning' of the song, I'm almost positive that the song, and especially the video is about her dissatisfaction with her man and the pleasuring of herself that secretly goes on. Her so-called 'closet' is the place that she goes when she needs to feel true satisfaction, and the fact that in the video she is so cautious about her lover implies that she needs to seek satisfaction secretly without him.

    The fact that she wrote the song in ten minutes shows that she was desperately in need of venting about her unfortunate situation.

    General CommentAnyone who doesnt understand this song and/or doesn't have a genuine appreciation for it, has never experienced real sexual suppression.

    General CommentJust a little more info...

    Did you know that she was in a relationship where her husband/boyfriend/whatever wouldn't allow her to wear make-up or put products in her hair, even for concerts? He claimed she didn't have to be like everyone else and that she had natural beauty. I just thought this piece of information might affect the meaning of the song.

    My OpinionPerhaps its just about wanting to break away from a person who isn't satisfying enough and wanting to go out and be free to do what they please with other people, most likely to get caught later.

    :D i...d...k...!

    General CommentSo basically the beginning of this song she's singing about how her relationship isn't fufilling. She's being the perfect charming girl. The "lycanthropy" is an animal transformation, she's saying there is a whole other side of her that is lustful and not "domesticated"

    The rest of the song just goes on from there about letting out that lust.
