This was never the way I planned
Not my intention
I got so brave, drink in hand
Lost my discretion
It's not what, I'm used to
Just wanna try you on
I'm curious for you
Caught my attention

I kissed a girl and I liked it
The taste of her cherry chapstick
I kissed a girl just to try it
I hope my boyfriend don't mind it
It felt so wrong
It felt so right
Don't mean I'm in love tonight
I kissed a girl and I liked it
I liked it


No, I don't even know your name
It doesn't matter,
You're my experimental game
Just human nature,
It's not what,
Good girls do
Not how they should behave
My head gets so confused
Hard to obey

I kissed a girl and I liked it
The taste of her cherry chap stick
I kissed a girl just to try it
I hope my boyfriend don't mind it
It felt so wrong
It felt so right
Don't mean I'm in love tonight
I kissed a girl and I liked it
I liked it,

Us girls we are so magical
Soft skin, red lips, so kissable
Hard to resist so touchable
Too good to deny it
Ain't no big deal, it's innocent


I kissed a girl and I liked it
The taste of her cherry chap stick
I kissed a girl just to try it
I hope my boyfriend don't mind it
It felt so wrong
It felt so right
Don't mean I'm in love tonight
I kissed a girl and I liked it
I liked it

    okay: this song is catchy. hell, i even danced to it, and thought it was fun. but BRAVE? hardly. i'm all for trying new things, but don't go saying it's "brave" to write about getting drunk and fooling around. it may be fun, but it's not brave. i'm 18 years old- i've experienced loads of people doing the exact same thing (especially slutty girls at parties who usually make out with each other just to make guys say it's 'hot'. low self esteem- whatever). but how on EARTH is that brave in any way? and don't even get me started on the song "Ur So Gay". besides using bad grammar, it is horribly demeaning to the GLBT community. I KNOW that it is a "fun song", but please keep saying "loosen up, itz just music wat duz it matterrr?!?!" (horrid typing done on purpose). i am just sharing my opinion, and that is that I happen to agree with BrandiLover 100%. if my generation is the type that actually admires drunken sexual escapades, and calls writing pop music about them "brave", then i fear for the future...

    Here are the REAL lyrics:

    This was never the way I planned
    Not my intention
    I got so brave, rodent trap in hand
    Lost my discretion
    It's not what, I'm used to
    Just wanna try you on
    I'm curious for you
    Caught my attention

    I kissed a squirrel and I liked it
    The taste of her acorn tooth pick
    I kissed a squirrel just to try it
    I hope animal control don't mind it
    It felt so wrong
    It felt so right
    Don't mean I'm a furry tonight
    I kissed a squirrel and I liked it
    I liked it

    No, I don't even know your vet
    It doesn't matter,
    You're my experimental pet
    Just found in nature,
    It's not what,
    Good trappers do
    Not how they should behave
    My head gets so confused
    Hard to obey

    I kissed a squirrel and I liked it
    The taste of her acorn tooth pick
    I kissed a squirrel just to try it
    I hope animal control don't mind it
    It felt so wrong
    It felt so right
    Don't mean I've got rabies tonight
    I kissed a squirrel and I liked it
    I liked it,

    Those squirrels they are so magical
    Soft fur, black nose, so kissable
    Hard to resist so touchable
    Too good to deny it
    Ain't no big deal, it's wildlife

    I kissed a squirrel and I liked it
    The taste of her acorn tooth pick
    I kissed a squirrel just to try it
    I hope animal control don't mind it
    It felt so wrong
    It felt so right
    Don't mean I'm in a tree tonight
    I kissed a squirrel and I liked it
    I liked it

    Apparently she wrote and released an album of Christian Songs, and when it didn't do so well, she released this.

    I guess it's not all about talent anymore.

    I don't like the song, but it's good to dance to when you're drunk :]

    Okay. Seriously?
    It's a song, an extremely good and catchy song.
    There's nothing wrong with experimenting or being bi.
    I'm bi, and I make out with girls ALL THE TIME. And I love it.
    Gonna yell at me and tell me I'm going against God?
    Well, you know what? God made me, God loves me. God doesn's care if you're gay. And I think more people should write songs like this. To get the meaning out that being gay or bi, or whatever is OKAY. It's not bad. And people need to stop being so ignorant and accept it. Just because you don't understand how someone can have feelings towards a member of the same sex doesn't make it discusting and gross.

    I don't understand how people can go to church every Sunday and pray every night and follow every other little thing, and be good all of the time.
    That doesn't mean I bash people that go to church and say they're "discusting" and what not.

    And furthermore, it's a song. Get over it.
    More songs will be coming out like this. This country is turning more and more gay friendly. So you mind as well accept it.

    K'thanks.
