"Mother We Just Can't Get Enough" as written by and Gregg Alexander....
There's something about you
Tears me inside and out whenever you're around
There's something about you
Speeding through my veins until we hit the ground
And there's something about the rush
Take it away
It made me feel so good
I get a feeling you get a feeling we got a feeling
Like we could die

And guess what mother
We just can't get enough
We just can't get enough
Lover
We just gotta get it up
We just gotta get it up

There's something about you
Tears me inside and out whenever you're around
And there's something about you
That makes me fly
You're a heart attack just the kind I like
And there's something about your kiss
Haunting and strange
That makes me feel so good
I get a feeling you get a feeling we got a feeling
Like we're alive

And mother
We just can't get enough
We just can't get enough
Lover
We just gotta get it up
We just gotta get it up

This world may not have too much time
But baby I'm fine because maybe you're mine
We just can't get enough
You better give up
Come on and give up
Better get ready to give up your life
Give up your life
It's you for me and me for you
You make my dreams come true
Off the wall coming from me
But I wanna see this through, my baby
You're on my mind all the time
I found a billion dime
You rolled the dice, and lost them all
And baby I just don't mind

And accidentally mother
We just can't get enough
We just can't get enough
Lover
We just gotta get it up
We just gotta get it up

This world may not have too much time
But baby I'm fine because maybe you're mine
We just can't get enough
We just can't get enough
And I don't want none
If I can't have you
A world of illusion
But baby you're true
I know I deceived you
I once told you lies
If you don't believe me
Just look in my eyes
Social security number please
Credit card number please
Money please
Money please
Money please
Soul please
Please deposit eighty five dollars
For the next three minutes please
Or your call will be fucking disconnected immediately

Aw yeah all right feel good tonight
Aw yeah all right feel good tonight

    General CommentDammit.. c'mon people. This song is awesome. More comments!

    Personally, I think the "mother" theory is bullshit. The song's much more than just about some random girl. Like with all New Radicals songs, this song is chock full of social commentary. The whole "social security numebr" bit sums it up. When Gregg is singing "we just can't get enough," I think he's referring to the way in which people, mostly Americans, just "can't get enopugh" of, admittedly, very shallow and material THINGS. Cell phones, fancy cars, clothes, et cetera. It's not just about some god damn "relationship" his mother disapproves of. To go that route would be oversimplifying the song and the lyrical greatness of the New Radicals. They're not some cookie cutter pop band, singing empty songs engineered to suit the masses by some big record company. That's everything they're NOT.

    I have way more to say about this song, and the band, but it's late. I'll just close with this: the New Radicals are NOT a "one hit wonder band." This song is proof. Everything they touch is gold, even if they only have the one album. Whenever I hear someone call them that, I wanna punch whoever said it in the face. It's the greatest insult. Who decides what makes something a "hit" anyway? By how much it's played on the radio? By how much money it makes? Is money the greatest thing we as humans can accomplish? THAT'S what this song is about. Hell.. maybe I've been brainwashed too..

    General Commentthis song just rocks... from the piano riff to the incredible energy at the end, and everything in between - my favorite new radicals song ever (although that's not saying much, in view of the one album in existence)

    General CommentsongMEANINGS guys haha.

    the mother theory sounds awesome. It's obviously about a girl he likes or whatever but i don't know.

    i think it's interesting how it goes
    mother, we just can't get enough
    LOVER, we just gotta get it up.

    i like the lover part, and the mother theory does make a lot of sense because he's trying to tell his mother how much he loves this girl and trying to tell the girl that she just needs to be patient and understand.


    i also love the part where it goes
    social security number please
    credit card number please
    money please
    money please
    money please
    SOUL please


    it's interesting. so very dryly sarcastic. it reminds me of something lazy boy would do.

    beautiful piano anyways

    and the intro makes me laugh "make my nipples hard. let's go"

    anyways. pretty song :)
