"Underdog" as written by Josh Franceschi, Max Helyer, Matt Barnes, Chris Miller and Dan Flint....
And I know something you don't,
It comes and goes like the strength,
In your bones, whoa.
To keep your mind at rest,
I'll never let the two of us be friends,
Does that hurt?

Underdog, just look at the mess you've made.
It's such a shame, a shame,
We had to find out this way.

You must have the must have moment in your hands,
And its sad to think that,
I am a season, I am going to change,
Just not face to face,
It ain't broke,
So don't fix it.

Underdog, just look at the mess you've made.
It's such a shame, a shame,
We had to find out this way.

Revenge loves company, three makes it a crowd,
So wash your mouth, sit this one out.

And I am down, down,
But definitely not out,
(Definitely not out)
Yeah, what did you call me again?
I bet, I bet we don't make it,
(Bet we don't make it)
Cause I never take advice from my friends,
Friends, in very high places,
They're only making beds for themselves,
How very, very selfish,
We'll keep you in mind in the end.

Underdog, just look at the mess you've made.
It's such a shame, a shame,
We had to find out this way.

Revenge loves company, three makes it a crowd,
So wash your mouth, sit this one out.

    General CommentI think it's about someone who had new found popularity and took advantage of it.

    i think they had someone good going with one girl and realised he could get any girl he wanted so he took advantage of it and messed around with other girls. Then when everyone found out and everything was ruined he realised that he was stupid and he had everything he needed in the beginning.

    hence: "it's such a shame you had to find out this way"
    he only founded out that he loved her when he lost her

    General Commentit's "we'll keep you in mind in the end"

    and meaning...i think it's about people trying to use them now they're getting bigger.
    and trying to learn who to trust

    My Interpretationso tbh when i saw the music video, my original take on it was that all three of the people in it were underdogs. allow me to explain...

    the brunette girl fights with her boyfriend because she saw him kissing the blonde girl, and then they start kissing and the blonde girl comes back, and is angry and surprised to see the brunette kissing him, because maybe she thought she was the only one he was seeing. the brunette girl looks satisfied that she got the boy back, and the blonde girl stormed off. the brunette starts dancing around the middle of the song, and you suppose it's because she's sharing her emotions, after seeing the boy cheating and dancing to this song about cheating, but then in the end she upsets the blonde girl by kissing the guy in front of her, even though the blonde girl didn't realise the guy was cheating with her, so it turns out the brunette girl messes things up too.

    basically, at the end the boy messes things up by kissing both of the girls, the blonde girl messes things up by kissing the guy without finding out if he has a girlfriend or not, and the brunette girl messes things up by kissing the guy again to spite the blonde girl, who didn't really do anything very wrong, as it could have been fixed by an explanation and apology. they are all the underdogs.

    in the end, i think the message is that everyone can turn out to be the underdog, no matter who looks like the underdog looks like in the situation. the message is to be careful with what you do, because you might be the one that has messed everything up in the end.

    i hope someone read this.. and i'm sorry i didn't explain the actual song lyrics, i was sort of just interpreting the music video. still, the music video reflects the meaning of the song.

    a few minor errors in these lyrics: "They're only making beds for themselves, selves are very very selfish.." and "so watch your mouth..."

    General CommentThis song is about three people, and the guys dating this guy, and then this other guy comes around who is definitely not very popular, but tries to be to get the girl.
    "underdog just look at the mess you made", just goes to show, that he found out, and he's not impressed, however he doesn't want the girl either.
