"Can't Be Tamed" as written by Paul Neumann, Marek Pompetzki, Miley Cyrus, Antonina Armato and Tim James....
Rock mafia
For those who don't know me
I can get a bit crazy
Have to get my way yep
Twenty four hours a day
'Cause I'm hot like that

Every guy, everywhere just gives me mad attention
Like I'm under inspection
I always get a ten 'cause I'm built like that

I go through guys like money flying out the hands
They try to change me but they realize they can't
And every tomorrow is a day I never plan
If you're gonna be my man understand

I can't be tamed
I can't be tamed
I can't be blamed
I can't can't, I can't can't be tamed
I can't be changed
I can't be tamed
I can't be, can't, I can't be tamed

If there is a question about my intentions
I'll tell ya I'm not here to sell ya
Or tell you to go to hell
I'm not a brat like that
I'm like a puzzle but all of my pieces are jagged
If you can understand this
We can make some magic I'm on like that

I wanna fly I wanna drive I wanna go
I wanna be a part of something I don't know
And if you try to hold me back I might explode
Baby, by now you should know

I can't be tamed
I can't be tamed
I can't be blamed
I can't can't, I can't can't be tamed
I can't be changed
I can't be tamed
I can't be, can't, I can't be tamed

Well I'm not a trick you play
I'm wired the different way
I'm not a mistake I'm not a fake
It's set in my DNA
Don't change me
Don't change me
Don't change me
Don't change me (I can't be tamed)

I wanna fly I wanna drive I wanna go
I wanna be a part of something I don't know
And if you try to hold me back I might explode
Baby, by now you should know

I can't be tamed
I can't be tamed
I can't be blamed
I can't can't, I can't can't be tamed
I can't be changed
I can't be tamed
I can't be, can't, I can't be tamed

    General CommentDid she even write this song? I remember reading she wanted her music to be more of Rock and depth.
    Anyways this song sounds like a big STFU to Disney or something. And we get to hear Miley's first swear word! I expect to see the Britney Spears path for Miley. [Britney] Started off cute and clean, and then sexed up it, and then went 5150. I hope it doesn't happen to Miley, but all the similarites are there.

    Oh and this song is definitely going to be a guilty pleasure for me like all of her songs.

    My OpinionWow...What can I say about this vid...? She's come a long way from "Best Of Both Worlds"(HM)/"Start All Over"(her 1st Miley single) to this...It kinda scares me to think that she might become like Britney or Lindsay, who were both Disney stars gone wrong. I understand her wanting to find herself, but this is pretty ridiculous. In this song, she's basically telling us that she wants to be wild and crazy like Britney/Lindsay. But look at Lindsay, this last week, she was found to be in violation of her parole for her DUI, and she is now sentenced to 30 days in prison. I sure hope Miley gets the hint that she doesn't want that lifestyle, and only bad things can come of it.

    General CommentHere, Miley is doing what she does best,make cliched declarative-statement songs that have little depth or meaning. These sorts of songs appeal to equally shallow, ignorant people who make such declarative statements in their own lives. This is a self-centered song. I counted 73 instances within this song that she uses the word 'I' or a variant of it.

    Everything within this song seems forced. For example, that line, "or tell you to go to Hell," was completely unnecessary. It adds nothing artistically and does not emphasize the point; it's just an avenue for her to "cuss" ("Hell" is a wimpy swear word, I think). She's trying way too hard. Look at the video. Goodness! It's not even art; it's disgusting propaganda for her disgusting face and her almost-decent body. She's trying so hard to "break away" from Disney. I'm going to pull a Miley here and make a cliche: "Living well is the best revenge."

    General CommentI love Miley Cyrus. This song is a stepping stone to her maturity and her talent. She's not a little girl anymore.

    General CommentThis is a pretty good song, I'm not really much of a Miley fan but I sorta respect ger for coming out with something like this. This is her breaking out of her disney shell. I'm a little upset she joined the pop bandwagon and didn't move on to country but this is still a good song.

    General CommentHer singing career is going down hill. She is turning into s less extreme version of Brittney Spears. Once she took those pictures I didn't like her anymore. She was a good role model, but has lost it, she has in fact grown up.

    Lyric CorrectionIt's not "I'm wrong like that"

    it's "I'm on like that"

    Thanks

    Song Meaninglast time i checked this website is called ''songmeanings'' not ''i'm a hater and imma say how much this song sucks''. You people are stupid.

    anyways, i think this songs means that she wants to be herself and she's breaking out from disney shell.

    only because britney spears did this doesn't mean miley is going to do it. miley's well grounded. britney spears's family was already fucked up.
