"Gorilla" as written by Philip Lawrence, Bruno Mars and Ari Levine....
Oh I got a bottle full of liquor with a cocaine
Kicker and I'm feeling like I'm thirty feet tall
So lay it down, lay it down
You got your legs up in the sky with the devil in your eyes
Let me hear you say you want it all
Say it now, say it now

Look what you doing, look what you done
But in this jungle you can't run
'Cause what I got for you
I promise is a killer, you'll be banging on my chest
Bang bang, gorilla

Ooh ooh ooh yeah, you and me baby making love like gorillas
Ooh ooh ooh yeah, you and me baby making love like gorillas

Yeah I got a fistful of your hair
But you don't look like you're scared
You're just smiling tell me daddy it's yours
'Cause you know how I like it use a dirty little lover
If the neighbors call the cops, call the sheriff
Call the swat we don't stop
We keep rocking while they knocking on our door
And you're screaming give it to me baby
Give it to me motherfucker

Oh look what you doing, look what you done
But in this jungle you can't run
'Cause what I got for you
I promise is a killer, you'll be banging on my chest
Bang bang, gorilla

Ooh ooh ooh yeah, you and me baby making love like gorillas
Ooh ooh ooh yeah, you and me baby making love like gorillas

I bet you never ever felt so good, so good
I got your body trembling like it should, it should
You'll never be the same baby once I'm done with you

Oh you with me baby making love like gorillas
Ooh ooh ooh yeah, you and me baby we'll be fuckin' it like gorillas
Ooh ooh ooh yeah
You and me baby making love like gorillas

    General CommentI'm surprised there are no comments on this song - the chords, rhythm, and lyrics are all very cool the way they differentiate and still blend so well.
    The lyrics themselves are pretty self explanatory - its the intense moment you lose yourself with that person....the chase, the catch, and so on. Very good song, The songs are always sung with so much passion and Bruno always sings with such a purity to his voice alone....one of my favorites from the album.

    My InterpretationOh I got a bottle full of liquor with a cocaine
    Kicker and I'm feeling like I'm thirty feet tall
    So lay it down, lay it down
    (He had a hefty amount of liquor/drugs thus him feeling of him feeling "30 FT tall")

    You got your legs up in the sky with the devil in your eyes
    Let me hear you say you want it all
    Say it now, say it now
    (Self explanatory her eyes are full of lust and well her legs are probably wrapped around his neck.)

    Look what you doing, look what you done
    But in this jungle you can't run
    'Cause what I got for you
    I promise is a killer, you'll be banging on my chest
    Bang bang, gorilla
    (He is being the dominate one and is promising her for 'killer sex')

    You and me baby making love like gorillas
    You and me baby making love like gorillas
    (self explanatory just look up gorillas mating)

    Yeah I got a fistful of your hair
    But you don't look like you're scared
    You're just smiling tell me daddy it's yours
    (She's acting naughty for his own self pleasure)

    'Cause you know how I like it use a dirty little lover
    If the neighbors call the cops, call the sheriff
    Call the swat we don't stop
    We keep rocking while they knocking on our door
    And you're screaming give it to me baby
    Give it to me motherfucker
    (He means their going to be making a lot of noise and they don't care about the disturbance of their neighbors)

    Oh look what you doing, look what you done
    But in this jungle you can't run
    'Cause what I got for you
    I promise is a killer, you'll be banging on my chest
    Bang bang, gorilla

    You and me baby making love like gorillas
    You and me baby making love like gorillas

    I bet you never ever felt so good, so good
    I got your body trembling like it should, it should
    You'll never be the same baby once I'm done with you
    (This is his point of view watching the woman having an orgasam)

    Oh you with me baby making love like gorillas
    You and me baby we'll be fuckin' it like gorillas
    You and me baby making love like gorillas

    Very self explanatory song. Two lovers/ or whatever they may be/ making love to eachother I don't honestly think it needs a explanation does it :)

    General CommentI think the song is about a guy who hates the fact that he loves a girl so evil, but she has some hold over him and he is hypnotised by her when they are together because the passion between them is so strong he is addicted to it.
