"Got You (where I Want You)" as written by Adam Paskowitz, James Book, Nick Lucero and Peter Perdichizzi....
Hey what's the point of this
Hey what's your favorite song
Maybe we could hum along

I think you're smart
You sweet thing
Tell me your name
I'm dying here

Oh got you where I want you
Oh got you where I want you
Oh yeah

Hey maybe just a smile
Oh hey do you know that I can dance
Could we talk for a while

I think you're smart
You sweet thing
Tell me your sign
I'm dying here

Oh got you where I want you
Oh got you where I want you
Oh yeah
Oh got you where I want you
I want you bad

I think you're smart
You sweet thing
Tell me your name
I'm dying here

Oh got you where I want you
Got you where I want you
Yeah
Got you where I want you
I want you
Want you

Got you where I want you.

    Song MeaningThis song isn't intended as a sweet love song imo. It has a very cynical and sarcastic tone. It's about manipulation, basically. The person is pretending to not have any agenda, telling the other person "I'm not after anything in particular; I just am curious/want to know more about you" He pretends to be awkward and shy but it is only a pretense. The chorus is a triumphant howl, almost like a wolf "awoooooooooooo got you (where I want you!) As the song (relationship) goes on, it becomes more and more apparent the person did have an agenda, and was exploiting her ego by flattery. He did not have honorable intentions from the very beginning. His sweet words come back to haunt her once he's finished using her.

    General Commentmesh, your lyrics don't sound right with the song. i have the album, and these part of the lyrics aren't posted in the cover, but it sounds like, "hey sucker sucker, you don't got no rubber, rub it up baby girl don't you be like no other. sucker sucker, you don't got no rubber, when you rock me baby, put me thing on me lover."
    anyways, this song is great. i agree with candykane, it's about a guy sweet talking a girl

    General CommentOk if u have the cd look in lyrics, and you will see that its "Talk for awhile."
    But yeah this sogn kicks major ass, its sad they were a one hit wonder though. As far as the reggae/rap thing part at the end i have no idea wat hes saying it always sounded like "suffer suffer it don't get no rougher."

    General Commentthis band definately doesnt get enough credit for conqueiring this song. i mean im sure a lot of bands would have be able to double this song with different lyrics and a different melody, but nonetheless, this is a great great song. one of my absolute favorites.

    General CommentThis is my favorite song EVER. I think that CandyKane7 got the meaning down perfectly. It seems that the lead singer, as well as myself, is pretty shy around girls and is therefore trying to find some sort of conversation piece to start talking to a girl he admires. The "hey, what's the point of this?" kinda references the whole game you have to play to meet a girl and try to develop a relationship with her.
    I kinda experienced this first hand when I was trying to man up and talk to this girl in my stats class back in college. I was all nervous, but she gave me a really big smile, which totally calmed me down. To this day, my heart still melts every time I hear the "maybe just a smile" line, it brings me back to that exact moment. After I met her, we always competed to see who could get the best grade on the test/quiz, which is where the "I think you're smart, you sweet thing" part comes in, as she usually beat me. Perhaps that's the reason this is my favorite song, it's just so amazing when music relates EXACTLY to your own life, it's as if someone wrote the song specifically for you. Even years later, I still remember her because of this song and it still get chills every time I hear it.
