"Bring It On" as written by and Brian Fallon....
My queen of the Bronx
Blue eyes and spitfire
I saw you walking back and forth about another boy
Thinking that you may want to leave

So give me the fevers that just won't break
And give me the children you don't want to raise
And tell me about the Cool, he sings to you in those songs
If it's better than my love, then bring it on

And take it back out to the streets where you know you used to be
For the Romeos uptown, if I bring you down
And you're tired of those vows
And you're really walking out

So give me the fevers that just won't break
And give me the children you don't want to raise
And tell me about the Cool, he sings to you in those songs
If it's better than my love, baby, bring it on
Oh, bring it on

Stop clicking your red heels and wishing for home
I'm hearing that he tells you he can read your palms
Is he better than my love? (better than my love?)
Is he better than my love? (better than my love?)

So I found the letters with the reasons to things
You've been feeling that he says they'll never know
And you say the night just got too cold

Well, everybody's cold
Who's gonna keep my baby warm
When everybody goes?

So give me the fevers that just won't break
And give me the children you don't want to raise
And tell me about the Cool, he sings to you in those songs
If it's better than my love

Well, then wait a minute, wait a minute
(Wasn't I good to you?)
Wait a minute, wait a minute
(Wasn't I good to you?)
Wait a minute, wait a minute
(You don't know what's good for you)

So give me the fevers that just won't break
And give me the children you don't want to raise
And tell me about the Cool, he sings to you in those songs
You've been my baby for so long, come on, bring it on
Oh, bring it on

Stop clicking your red heels and wishing for home
I'm hearing that he tells you he can read your palms
If he's better than my love
If he's better than my love, then go on, take it all

    General CommentWhen I first heard this song, I thought it was from the point of view of the other man trying to convince her to leave. After seeing the official video and reading the lyrics more closely, it's obviously the man she's married to. But sometimes I can still see it from both POVs.

    With the married man, it's really, really sad, especially the acoustic version. I love it cause it feels brutal and honest, and confident that she won't leave but at the same time second-guessing himself near the end.

    With the other man, it's more yearning. It also sounds confident in that cocky way that people get when they think they can take someone away. He's probably been her best friend for a while and gets to hear her complaints about the marriage, "tired of those vows." He wants to "take it back out on the streets where you know you used to be," because maybe she's changed ever since marrying the guy, and he wants to remind her who she is and that she should be with him. Maybe they've been together before. "Stop clicking your red heels and wishing for home," could be that she's doubting herself and realizing she doesn't want to cheat.

    I don't which interpretation I like better.
