"Boys" as written by Chad Hugo, Ashlee Nicolle Simpson, Kenna Zemedkun and Jim Beanz....
For whatever reason
I feel like I've been wanting you all my life
You don't understand?
I'm so glad we're at the same place
At the same time, it's over now
I spotted you dancing
You made all the girls stare
Those lips and your brown eyes
And the sexy hair
I should shake my thing
I make the world want you
Tell your boys you'll be back
I wanna see what you can do

What would it take for you to just leave with me?
Not trying to sound conceited
But me and you we're meant to be
You're a sexy guy, I'm a nice girl (don't you know?)
Let's turn this dance floor into our own little nasty world

Boys, sometimes a girl just needs one (you know I need you)
Boys, to love her and to hold (I just want you to touch me)
Boys, and when a girl is with one
Boys, then she's in control

Took the boy off the dance floor
Screaming in his ear
Must have said something 'bout me (what you say?)
Because he's looking over here
You looking at me with a sexy attitude
But the way your boys moving it
It puts me in the mood

What would it take for you to just leave with me?
Not trying to sound conceited
But me and you were meant to be (don't you know?
You're a sexy guy, I'm a nice girl (don't you know?)
Let's turn this dance floor into our own little nasty world

Boys, sometimes a girl just needs one (I get nasty)
Boys, to love her and to hold (I get nasty)
Boys, and when a girl is with one (I get nasty)
Boys, then she's in control (You like that? Here we go)

Tonight, let's fly, boy have no fear (have no fear)
There's no time to lose (What are you waiting for?)
And next week, you may not see me here
So, boy, just make your move (let me see what you can do)

Boys, sometimes a girl just needs one
Boys, to love her and to hold (the way you move)
Boys, and when a girl is with one
Boys, then she's in control

Come with me, let's fly into the night
Oh boy, tonight is ours (It's just you and me, baby)
When hugging me, make sure you hold me tight
Let's head for the stars
Get nasty, oh

Boys, sometimes a girl just needs one
Boys, to love her and to hold (Get nasty)
Boys, and when a girl is with one (Get nasty)
Boys, then she's in control

Can't live with 'em, can't live without 'em

    My OpinionROFLROFLROFL

    You people are so stupid. You waste your time looking up a song that you hate so you can diss someone whose more popular than you and has more money than you. I don't mind opinions, but, I find it a tad ironic how you people go out of your way to diss someone else when you must not be any better than you're saying they are. Obviously, your life isn't too grand if you need to make fun of others to feel cooler or superior.

    Also, Britney can do whatever she wants. She's her own person. It's up to the parents to control and supervise what their children listen to. I mean, sometimes, there are things that children are prone to be exposed to, but, the parents have to have control for the most part. But, nowadays, parents are too lazy to do that. Too much work. :|

    And, yeah, I'm sort of a hypocrite. I'm wasting my valuable drawing time ranting, but, fuck, I do what I want and so do you, obviously. x)

    I, for one, love this song and Britney. But, hey, that's just me and I like a lot of music that you hardcore rock/metal/whatever-it-is-you-kiddies-listen-to-to-feel-hardcore-and-cool-nowadays/whatever-single-genre-of-music-you-kiddies-listen-to-nowadays-because-you're-too-narrow-minded-to-like-anything-your-"friends"-are-prone-to-make-fun-of-you-for-listening-to/whatever-it-is-you-comforming-to-non-comforming-twats-listen-to-nowadays-so-you-can-feel-so-indie-rock fans wouldn't appreciate too much... :D

    I'm a bitch, I know. ;D

    General CommentJust one question.
    Who said she is a role model? I see more than one response that says soemthing like "you think she's a good role model?" and I don't see too many saying that she is. They seem to like her music. Big whoop. She has great beats if you like to dance a certain way.
    I think it's time that she makes it official that her crowd is no longer supposed to be pre and early teen girls but other than that she isn't that big of a deal.

    General Commenti feel sorry for her........who wants to be in their 20's and be a role-model for millions of teenyboppers? Not me at least! She just wants to do her own thing.....and that's be young and have fun! BACK OFF :)
