What am I supposed to do oh, oh,
When she's so damn cold like 20 below.
That girl, that girl she's such a bitch,
But I tell myself I can handle it.

No I don't frequent the LBC
'Cause I'm a bit too pale to run that scene
But the SoCal sun has grown on me and that girl, that girl.

Started with a bottle of cheap champagne,
Now she's got me hooked on her like good cocaine
She's so numb, miss novocaine, that girl, that girl

So no kid, not tonight,
You're not that good and I'm not that type,
She's beautiful but she's cold as ice,
And that keeps me hanging on.

So what am I supposed to do oh, oh,
When she's so damn cold like 20 below.
That girl, that girl she's such a bitch,
I tell myself I can handle it.
But where am I supposed to go oh oh
When she throws me out and it's 20 below,
That girl, that girl she's such a trick,
But I can't lie I'm in love with it.

That girl, oh, oh, oh, oh.
That girl, oh, oh, oh, oh.
That girl, oh, oh, oh, oh.
That girl,
That girl.

Now she won't buy my sex appeal,
Just an East Coast kid with a record deal.
I play her song,
She plays the field, that girl, that girl.
Knock me on the street in the middle of winter,
My frostbite heart says 'try to forget her',
Missed that kiss but I'll always remember that girl, that girl.

So no kid, not tonight,
You're not that cool, no you're not my type,
She's beautiful but she's cold as ice,
And I'm still hanging on.

So what am I supposed to do oh oh,
When she's so damn cold like 20 below.
That girl, that girl she's such a bitch,
I tell myself I can handle it.
But where am I supposed to go oh oh
When she throws me out and it's 20 below,
That girl that girl she's such a trick
But I can't lie I'm in love with it.

That girl, oh, oh, oh, oh.
That girl, oh, oh, oh, oh.
That girl, oh, oh, oh, oh.
That girl,
That girl.

Sit around waiting for the spark to fade,
You can add another face to your pity parade.
I can't believe it,
I've never felt so cheated.
Knocked me down, it was all pretend,
Set me back up just to do it again.
You say love's overrated,
I say it's complicated.

So what am I supposed to do oh oh,
When she's so damn cold like 20 below.
That girl, that girl she's such a bitch,
I tell myself I can handle it.
But where am I supposed to go oh oh
When she throws me out and it's 20 below,
That girl that girl she's such a trick,
But I can't lie I'm in love with it

That girl, oh, oh, oh, oh.
That girl,
That girl,
That girl,
That girl,
That girl.

    I, personally, think this song is about the complex dynamic of a boy who is more in love with a girl than she is with him. She doesn't think love is worth it, and she seems like the type that scorns feelings - the kind of girl that you'd label hard-to-get, except i don't think she's playing hard to get, i think she just doesn't care, or at least, she doesn't care anywhere near as much.

    The take of the song seems to be from the perspective of a boy that's hooked on the girl he can't have, the one that hurts him, rejects him and when she does concede to him, it's with the air of throwing a dog a bone.

    I absolutely adore this song, and i think it's very catchy and on the surface it sounds pretty fun, but i don't think the meaning is actually that superficial as to being about how "girls rock!! 1! 11!! 111!!! " as some people have said that it means. I think it's simply about a relationship that's totally imbalanced and more complex than most people think.

    But hey, that's just my take on it.
