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.

    I am stright. Lets start with that. But, seriously this is the song of the year! Just because I'm stright I can't like this song. I hate it when people say that! Espically my grandmother! I come from a catholic family so the idea of "gay" isn't really welcomed. But I wish that would change. All the elders in the church need to realize that times are changing and that back when the Bible was written it was different. I was called g* for saying that this is my favorite song. What a joke! People really need to move on from the past and accept the it's not the same. Then, people go and say it's a bad infulence on kids. Let me tell ya, a song is not going to infulence a kid on his/her sexuality. That's their choice. My 10 year old sister loves this song but, thinks the idea of "gay" is gross (No offense to anyone). So what do you think about that Fox News?

    Madmom, you're really being stupid. There is absolutely no talk about s* in the whole song. And, they aren't saying anything about being homosexual. She kissed a girl, so what? Lots of people kiss their own gender just to see what it's like. Which is what this song is about! So you need to shut up. Before you get too many people pissed off for ranking on their fav song! : P

    I think this song is about how grrls can b free sumtimes, not all uptight for their boifrends or parents and just go hav fun and kiss a girl. I personally woold not rite a song about it, it would come out stupid. But katy did it well, and sung it well 2. Its grate that people can rite about fun and forbidden fantasiez, insted of s**, money, the world, nature, or watevrr. This song is reely special, and will nevrr b 4gotten. People in my skool still sing it, and it came out like a yeer ago! Lol :)

    Ohkay, I don't like this song at all. I don't like Katy Perry at all. && somebody tell me why she was at warped tour? Her music doesn't fit in with any of the bands. I don't think she has a right to sing 'i kissed a girl' because shes deff straight, and it just really makes fun of the people who are bi, and g**. I mean I'm straight, but I have friends that are bi and ggay. I just thinks it really disrespectful.
