"Get Some" as written by James Lynn Strait, Michael Tristram Doling, John L. Fahnestock and Ronald D. Jr. Mayo....
Don't pull your pants, before I go down
Don't turn away, this is my time
Don't make demands, I don't take none
Just say a prayer that it gon' get done
Don't pull your pants before I go down
Don't turn away, this is my time
Like a shotgun needs an outcome
I'm your prostitute, you gon' get some
Like a shotgun needs an outcome
I'm your prostitute, you gon' get some

Go ahead, go way low, where I can do no harm
Go ahead, go way low in my honey lovin' arms
Go ahead, go way low, where I can do no wrong
Got you around my finger like a lonely lover's charm
Like a lonely lover's charm

And 'cause I can, I'm gon' go west
Just like a man, I'm the fortress
Like a shotgun, I can't be outdone
I'm your prostitute, you gon' get some
Like a shotgun needs an outcome
I'm your prostitute, you gon' get some

Go ahead, go way low, where I can do no harm
Go ahead, go way low in my honey lovin' arms
Go ahead, go way low, where I can do no wrong
Got you around my finger like a lonely lover's charm

Go ahead, go
Go ahead, go
Go ahead, go
Go ahead, go
Go ahead, go
Go ahead, go
Go ahead

Go ahead, go way low, where I can do no harm
Go ahead, go way low in my honey lovin' arms
Go ahead, go way low, where I can do no wrong
Got you around my finger like a lonely lover's charm
Like a lonely lover's charm
Like a lonely lover's charm

    General CommentThis is so awesome. I can't believe it's not getting more attention.

    I think it's about the sinful pleasure of using your sexuality to control another person. "Gon' go West", i.e. I'll take control and lead you.

    Or maybe she's just madly in love. :P

    General CommentThis is about the power of a woman over a man. She's in control of his pants, not him. He must shut up. She doesn't take demands, all he can do is pray. His sexual needs are his weakness, which means he's wrapped literally and metaphorically around her finger. She performs oral as an act of power to reduce his mind to jelly.

    General CommentIf anyone here is a Batman fan, this is the theme for the Catwoman Reveal trailer for the game Batman: Arkham City.

    It fits well :P

    General CommentIt obviously is about sex. But when she says its not about sex, she means that she is using it as a metaphor for her control over publicity/the music industry (or something like that).

    There really couldn't be much more obviously sexual lyrics without being blatantly explicit. "Don't pull your pants before I go down," "Like a shotgun needs an outcome," "I'm your prostitute, you gon' get some" come on...

    My InterpretationThis is about a woman choosing to use her appeal for power. The lyrics lead us to believe it is sexual power over a man, but I think it could apply to a lot more. She knows what you want and will use it to her advantage, in the bedroom or in the music industry.

    General Commentit's not about sex.. This is what Lykke said to a swedish newspaper:
    (translated)

    Interviewer: ...Is it something like that that you are referring to in your new song "Get Some", in which you are singing "I'm your prostitute, you gon' get some?"

    Lykke: This song is not at all about what you think, sex..

    Interviewer: Of course not, do you think I'm stupid?

    Lykke: No, but that's what people seem to think. It's about... to be happy for living your dream and to get four out of five stars in a magazine. So okay, I thought, I can be the monkey and now I'm dancing for you.
