    General CommentWhat the lyrics mean:
    Smack my bitch up (in slang – contrary to the explanation by many people) means to do something intensely, like being on stage (other possible explanations are reference to heroin use, attempts to generate shock value or just what it sounds like). As for what change my pitch up may mean, I have a few guesses, but am not sure at all – probably there’s no point at all in explaining lyrics like these.

    General CommentI agree with trphg, the meaning of the song can vary, but this is a great party song as well. Also, the video rocks! Very creative.

    General CommentEver since the first time I heard this song it always made me think of a girl and a guy who are together, and the guy is rather abusive and doesn't realize what he's got, and what a beautiful girl he's with. During the mideastern chanting type part in the song, I've always seen that as representation of the girl's beauty, and then once again there's "smack my bitch up", reaffirming that he doesn't even see it. Or doesn't care. Either way.. I'm strange.

    General Comment"It sure as hell ain't sampled from 'an old Ultramagnetic MCs song' though " Err yes it is. Ultramagnetic MCs' Give the drummer Some - "Switch up, change my pitch up, smack my bitch up, like a pimp."

    General CommentI'm amused by the fact that this song with 2 lines of lyrics that really don't mean much can generate this much discussion. It's kind of cool actually. I love you guys.

    Anyway, last guy i asked said they were talking about their speakers, which seems to make sense, although he's hardly a reputable source.

    General CommentI doubt this is the case but I always kinda thought of it being a reference to changing the pitch of a sample (Change my pitch up) and then having it sound more female, therfore (Smack my bitch up).

    General CommentPersonally, I find the juxtaposition of the lines interesting. "Change my pitch up" seems to be a term similar to a "Change of pace", but "Smack my bitch up" seems to be...falling back into the same old groove. So really the whole song is a contradiction in itself.

    Or maybe it's just a really ravin' good dance song.

    General CommentHey guys, just to throw a different set of ears into the discussion, as a Dj myself in the electronic music industry, this songs meaning became apparent quite quickly, and then just to prove myself right i watched the video clip haha.

    With electronic music, Pitch = speed/tempo
    also in the electronic music scene, Smack most commonly refers to; heroin.
