"Waiting Room" as written by Prince Rogers Nelson, Gwen Renee Stefani, Thomas M. Dumont and Tony Ashwin Kanal....
I sign in my name
I guess I have to wait a while
I'm gonna play this game
Call me up if you know how to dial
You always had my number

You need to be my lover

Humiliation
I'm in the waiting room

[Chorus:]
If we both want the love and I wait long enough
Then the ground that we're on might be coming
All I can do, is wait for you
All I can do, is wait for you

I'm all alone in the waiting room
I'm all alone
I'm all alone in the waiting room

When you buried in solitude
It can get real thick
Desire is your only food
It can get you sick
You know you're so fine (so fine)
I'm over here standing in this line (just to wait)
Just a' waiting in the waiting room

If we both want the love and I wait long enough
Then the ground that we're on might be coming
All I can do, is wait for you
All I can do, is wait for you

I'm all alone in the waiting room
I'm all alone
I'm all alone in the waiting room

While I'm in the waiting room
A thousand thoughts I think of you
Whatever you did, it's got me glued
It's icky, it's sticky, ooo
You're the one I'm dreaming of
Why does this feel like wasted time?
What a price is traveling love?
You and me trapped between these lights
Ooo, you're so mine

If we both want the love and I wait long enough
Then the ground that we're on might be coming
All I can do, is wait for you (I'm just waiting for you)
All I can do, is wait for you (you know you want me to)
All I can do, is wait for you (you always had my number)
All I can do, is wait for you (you know you need to be my lover)
All I can do is wait for you
All I can do is wait for you
Wait for you. Wait for...Why are you making me wait?
I'm all alone in the waiting room
I'm all alone
I'm all alone in the waiting room
I'm all alone in the waiting room
I'm all alone
I'm all alone in the waiting room
Will you call me when it's my turn?
I'm all alone in the waiting room
I'm all alone
I'm all alone in the waiting room
Will you call me when it's my turn?

    General CommentThis song is about a girl who's in love with this guy, or girl. And they are either already in a relationship or they like someone else. So Gwen is saying that she'll keep on waiting for him until he's ready for her.

    General CommentAnd yet, is it worthwhile? Or futile? I point you to the "wasted time" she sings about. Does it serve a purpose or not?

    General CommentHave you realized that she says "Lover" in a lot of songs throughout this album? hehe
    Yeah this stuff is so crazily different than their ska days and Tragic Kingdom stuff. Wow I was in 7th grade when that came out. I'm old! Haha...I really love No Doubt :)

    General CommentTo me, this song is about a person who has a lustful connection to another person. For whatever reason, the person being lusted after is emotionally unavailable. This person also is not known well by the person in lust. Something like puppy love. The connection is not logical, yet undeniable all the same. And once it's reciprocated, the interest will die. The enigmatic force is lost, but in the meantime, you'll do anything to get a taste of it.

    And yeah, No Doubt Rocks, even though this song was written by Prince.
