Katy Perry – Hot N Cold lyrics

You change your mind
Like a girl changes clothes
Yeah, you PMS like a bitch
I would know

And you
always think
Always speak cryptically
I should
know
That you're no good for me

'Cause you're
hot then you're cold
You're yes then you're no
You're in then you're out
You're up and you're down
You're wrong when it's right
It's black and it's white
We fight, we break up
We kiss, we make up

You, you don't
really wanna stay, no
You, but you don't really wanna go, oh

'Cause you're hot then you're cold
You're yes then you're no
You're in and you're out
You're up and you're down

We used to be just
like twins, so in sync
The same energy now's a dead battery
Used to laugh 'bout nothing
Now you're
plain boring
I should know
That you're not gonna change

'Cause you're hot then you're cold
You're yes then you're no
You're in then you're out
You're up and you're down
You're wrong when it's right
It's black and it's white
We fight, we break up
We kiss, we make up

You, you don't really wanna stay, no
You, but you don't really wanna go, oh

You're hot then you're cold
You're yes then you're no
You're in then you're out
You're up and you're down

Someone call the doctor
Got a case of a love bipolar
Stuck on a rollercoaster
Can't get off this ride

You change your
mind
Like a girl changes clothes

'Cause you're hot
then you're cold
You're yes then you're no
You're in
then you're out
You're up and you're down
You're wrong when it's right
It's black and it's white
We fight, we break up
We kiss, we make up

'Cause you're hot then you're cold
You're yes then you're no
You're in then you're out
You're up and you're down
You're wrong when it's right
It's black and it's white
We fight, we break up
We kiss, we make up

You, you don't really wanna stay, no
You, but you don't really wanna go, oh


You're hot then you're cold
You're yes then you're no
You're in then you're out
You're up and you're down, down, down, down...

    I love this song. I heard it on fnmtv. The meaning to the song is her and her boyfreind fight alot. Her byfreind changes his mood alot. She thinks that her boyfreind will never change. When she says hes hot and hes cold it means that he may be mad one minite and is happy and next. If you ask him yes or no he may say yes and then change his mind. I think this song is really about having a boyfreind who is always unsure of himself. But hey this song rocks!

    I don't know why I used to hate this song, then I actually listened to it! Haha, anyways I think the meaning of this song is that people, (not just her ex) need to make up their mind all day everyday, 24/7. I also think that this song sends out a good message to young couples who want to get married, who can't seem to make up their mind, so they should just wait until they are older, so this song can also send out a good message to that kinda stuff.
    Please check out my song I posted, brenda song- open up your eyes! K, thanks.

    He has equal parts of hot and cold which is intimidating because Katy is used to women who have all hot and no cold, which makes her feel more cold then hot and then Katy realizes that her wedding in Vegas cannot happen which is important to her because Vegas is neither hot nor cold in the summer and he needs his dream location to have both. Also he isn't wearing his hot, cherry chap stick. ?
    This song rules!
