"Genie In A Bottle" as written by David Martin Frank, Stephen Alan Kipner and Pamela Sheyne....
I feel like I've been locked up tight
For a century of lonely nights
Waiting for someone to release me
You're lickin' your lips
And blowing kisses my way
But that don't mean I'm gonna give it away
Baby, baby, baby (Baby baby baby)

Ooh, my body's sayin' let's go
Ooh, but my heart is sayin' no

If you wanna be with me
Baby there's a price to pay
I'm a genie in a bottle
You gotta rub me the right way

If you wanna be with me
I can make your wish come true
You gotta make a big impression (Oh yeah)
Gotta like what you do

(I'm a genie in a bottle baby
Gotta rub me the right way honey
I'm a genie in a bottle baby
Come come, come on and let me out)

The music's fading and the lights down low
Just one more dance and then we're good to go
Waiting for someone
Who needs me
Hormones racing at the speed of light
But that don't mean it's gotta be tonight
Baby, baby, baby (Baby baby baby)

Ooh, my body's sayin' let's go
Ooh, but my heart is sayin' no (but my heart is sayin' no)

If you wanna be with me
Baby there's a price to pay
I'm a genie in a bottle (I'm a genie in a bottle)
You gotta rub me the right way

If you wanna be with me (Oh)
I can make your wish come true (Your wish come true oh)
Just come and set me free baby
And I'll be with you

(I'm a genie in a bottle baby
Gotta rub me the right way honey
I'm a genie in a bottle baby
Come come, come on and let me out)

I'm a genie in a bottle baby
Gotta rub me the right way honey
(If you wanna be with me)
I'm a genie in a bottle baby
Come come, come on and let me out

Ooh, my body's sayin' lets go
Ooh, but my heart is sayin' no

If you wanna be with me
Baby there's a price to pay
I'm a genie in a bottle (I'm a genie in a bottle)
You gotta rub me the right way

If you wanna be with me
I can make your wish come true
Just come and set me free, baby
And I'll be with you

If you wanna be with me
Baby there's a price to pay
I'm a genie in a bottle (In a bottle baby)
You gotta rub me the right way

If you wanna be with me (If you wanna be with me)
I can make your wish come true
Just come and set me free baby
And I'll be with you

I'm a genie in a bottle baby
Come come, come on and let me out

    General CommentBasically it's saying if you want me than you have to treat me the right way and with respect and I'll give you what you want. Not in a dirty way.

    General Commentah man..I miss the 90's music, this song included.

    valxluffxjoo__ ---- the lyrics include 'rub' because in order to release a genie from a bottle...you have to rub the bottle. Like you know in Aladin...where he had to rub the lamp in order to get the genie out? it's like that.

    This song to me is about her wanting to be released...like she's been feeling trapped for so long that she needs someone who'll help her escape, someone who she can be herself with, someone who she can be real with and free with.

    It's not a dirty song. It depends on how you interpret it..and if you know what a genie in a bottle is then you're fine. A genie in a bottle is just someone who wants to escape...she's the genie and just wants to be free. It's pretty self explanatory. Those who make this song 'dirty' just need to analyze the lyrics more...and put aside their dirty thoughts and stop butchering songs for no reason.

    General CommentIt's saying she feels horny but doesn't want to just have sex with anyone. She wants someone who really makes her crave it, who leaves her no choice but release the genie (whore) inside of her.
    Basically she wants to be a total slut but that doesn't mean she's desperate for sex; she's waiting for a guy who's worth being a slut for.

    General CommentUm...about waiting all night, to release and shit....she's talking about not having had a good fuck in awhile.

    So...somebody, go rub her the right way.

    General Comment"Gotta rub me the right way" actually has *three* different meanings - how clever is that :)

    Lyrics aside, this was a good song, they don't make em like this anymore

    General CommentWell according to Christina the song is about self respect. She's saying than she's not going to have sex with him or be serious with him until he shows respect or kindness or whatever.

    General CommentThey also made a "cleaner version" of the song. They replaced "hormones racing" with "heartbeat racing" and "rub me the right way" with treat me the right way.

    My InterpretationThe song is basically about a girl who wants a man that will treat her right. "Rub her the right way" means making the right impression. She feels the physical attraction to a man, but she doesn't want a relation that's purely physical. She wants a man that will care about her emotional and mental well-being as well; someone that will care about her as a person. She's saying that if they do that, then she'll be their girl and their's only.
