"Hold It Against Me" as written by and Max Martin Bonnie Mckee....
Hey, over there
Please, forgive me
If I'm comin' on too strong
Hate to stare
But, you're winnin'
And they're playin' my favorite song
So, come here
A little closer
Wanna whisper in your ear
Make it clear
A little question
Wanna know just how you feel

If I said my heart was beating loud
If we could escape the crowd somehow
If I said I want your body now
Would you hold it against me?
'Cause, you feel like paradise
And I need a vacation tonight
So, if I said I want your body now
Would you hold it against me?

Hey, you might think
That I'm crazy
But, you know I'm just your type
I might be
Little hazy
But, you just cannot deny
There's a spark
In between us
When we're dancin' on the floor
I want more
Wanna see it
So, I'm askin' you tonight

If I said my heart was beating loud
If we could escape the crowd somehow
If I said I want your body now
Would you hold it against me?
'Cause, you feel like paradise
And I need a vacation tonight
So, if I said I want your body now
Would you hold it against me?

If I said I want your body
Would you hold it against me?
Yeah, uh-huh, oh

Give me somethin' good
Don't wanna wait
I want it now
Pop it like a hood
And show me how you work it out

Alright
If I said my heart was beating loud
If I said I want your body now
Would you hold it against me?

If I said my heart was beating loud
If we could escape the crowd somehow
If I said I want your body now
Would you hold it against me?
'Cause, you feel like paradise
And I need a vacation tonight
So, if I said I want your body now
Would you hold it against me?

    General CommentIf I said my heart was beating loud,
    If we could escape the crowd somehow,
    If I said I want your body now...
    Would you hold it against me?

    The best part of this song, without a doubt!

    My InterpretationI wish Britney would record more songs like this. IMHO, her voice is better suited to dance/trance than dance/hip-hop.

    I also believe this song is about a girl who goes out clubbing to escape her daily life and finds a guy she's sexually attracted too and wants to know if the guy she wants would think less of her if she said she wanted a one-night-stand up-front. Uncertainty concerning past morals vs. modern trends.

    Song MeaningOne thing puzzles me about the title line in the chorus. Does she mean "would you hold it against me" as in:

    - the guy thinking less of her if they had a one night stand

    or

    - the guy literally holding his body against hers...?

    I'm guessing the former, but still clarification would be great!

    General CommentWhen she says "Hold it Against Me", it means two things; It's referring to a physical contact, but it's also referring to when someone "holds a bad thing against you."
