"Do It" as written by Didrik Stig Thott, Gavin Ragnar Jones, Sebatian Axel Thott and Niclas Kings....
Hey hey
Come on, come on, come on
Come on and do it
Come on and do it
Hey
Do it, do it, do it

It's just another thing keep your eye fixed on the road
Do what your mama said
I will not be told
Keep your mouth shut, keep your legs shut
Go back in your place
Blameless, shameless, damsel in disgrace

Who cares what they say
Because the rules are for breaking
(I'll said ya)
Who made them anyway
You gotta show what you feel
Don't hide

Come on and do it
Don't care how you look, it's just how you feel
Come on and do it
You gotta make it real
Come on and do it
It's time to free what's in your soul
You gotta get it right, this time
Come on freak out lose control

Remember things like this should be seen and never heard
Give a little respect to me & it will be returned
Keep your head down, keep your nose clean
Go back against the wall
Girl there's no way out for you
You are sure to fall

Who cares what they do
Because it's yours for the taking
So it's not for you anyway
Make your own rules to live by

Come on and do it
Don't care how you look, it's just how you feel
Come on and do it
You gotta make it real
Come on and do it
It's time to free what's in your soul
You gotta get it right, this time
Come on freak out lose control

You might do the wrong thing (might do the wrong thing)
for the right reasons (for the right reason)
Don't just do the right thing (don't do the right thing)
to be pleasing (to be pleasin Baby)

Who cares what they say
Because the rules are for breaking (I'll said ya)
Who made them anyway
You gotta show what you feel don't hide

Come on and do it
Don't care how you look, it's just how you feel
Come on and do it
You gotta make it real
Come on and do it
It's time to free what's in your soul
You gotta get it right, this time
Come on freak out lose control
Come on and do it
Don't care how you look, it's just how you feel
Come on and do it
You gotta make it real
Come on and do it
It's time to free what's in your soul
You gotta get it right, this time
Come on freak out lose control
Come on and do it
Don't care how you look, it's just how you feel
Come on and do it
You gotta make it real
Come on and do it
It's time to free what's in your soul
You gotta get it right, this time
Come on freak out lose control

    General CommentThey pretty much sum up the whole song with the line, "Make your own rules to live by."

    - "it's just another thing you gotta keep your eye fixed on the road. do what your mama said, i will not be told. keep your mouth shut, keep your legs shut, go back in your place. blameless, shameless, damsel in disgrace." (you've always listened to what your mother has told you to do. you're being pushed around like a doll, always following your mother's rules.)

    - "who cares what they say, because rules are for breaking. who made them anyways. you gotta show what you feel, don't hide." (sometimes, you just gotta stop listening to the rules and follow your heart. don't be afraid to speak your mind, or do thing that you want to do.)

    - "come on and do it, don't care how you look it's just how you feel. come on and do it, you gotta make it real. come on and do it, it's time to free whats in your soul. you gotta get it right, this time. come on freak out, lose control." (this part is encouraging you to be something different, don't blend in.)

    - "remember things like this should be seen and never heard. give a little respect to me and it will be returned. keep your head down, keep your nose clean, go back against the wall. girl there's no what out for you, you are sure to fall." (this is, again, talking about the "rules" you hear as a kid. 'a lady so be seen, not heard', 'respect is a two way street', 'don't ruin your reputation', but they point out, if you always follow the rules you won't get anywhere in life.)

    - "who cares what they do, because it's yours for the taking. so it's not for you anyway, make your own rules to live by." (do i need to explain this?!)

    - "you might do the wrong thing, for the right reason. don't just do the right thing, to be pleasing." (if you step out of the mold you're living in, you're being true to yourself. don't be fake, just to please others. DON'T put yourself in a situation that makes you feel uncomfortable.)

    This song has been like theme song since I was like seven. It taught me at a younger age to be different. I honestly believe, if it wasn't for The Spice Girls, I wouldn't be who I am today. GIRL POWER!!!

    General CommentYes the first post is the opposite of the meaning of the song. The first verse is being sarcastic. They are supposed to be in the perspective of general society, telling you how to live and what is proper. This song is really about self liberation, especially for WOMEN. That's why they say damsel in distress.
    Women have been oppressed for ages. Especially when it comes to self expression and sexuality. Lines like "keep your legs shut" "keep your mouth shut" "remember things should be seen and never heard "get back in your place" are ideas that society have expected women to follow for ages. They are basically mocking these gender codes. This song is saying that you need to take control of your life and make your own rules. Rules are not always right "Don't just do the right thing to be pleasing" Remember they are all about GIRL POWER! This is one of the more powerful songs with a real message.

    General CommentProwler Kid, I think you're totally off. I think the first verse is basically saying what everyone tells kids:

    "It's just another keep your eye fixed on the road
    Do what your mama said
    I will not be told
    Keep your moth shut, keep your legs shut
    Go back in your place
    Blameless, shameless, damsei in disgrace"

    And then the next verse is saying fuck that, do whatever you want:

    "Who cares what they say
    Because the rules are for breaking
    (I'll tell ya)
    Who made them anyway
    You gotta show what you feel
    Don't hide"

    General Comment"Keep your moth shut, keep your legs shut
    Go back in your place"

    Mel B should definitely listen to this song before she walks out the door every morning, because she is getting a little too raunchy. I mean come on, how many bastard children does she need? One is enough, god will punish her.
