All along the western front
People line up to receive.
She got the power in her hands
To shock you like you won't believe.
Saw her in the amazon
With the voltage running through her skin
Standing there with nothing on
She's gonna teach me how to swim

Ooh girl
Shock me like an electric eel
Baby girl
Turn me on with your electric feel

Ooh girl
Shock me like an electric eel
Baby girl
Turn me on with your electric feel

All along the eastern shore
Put your circuits in the sea
This is what the world is for
Making electricity
You can feel it in your mind
Oh you can do it all the time
Plug it in and change the world
You are my electric girl.

Ooh girl
Shock me like an electric eel
Baby girl
Turn me on with your electric feel

Ooh girl
Shock me like an electric eel
Baby girl
Turn me on with your electric feel

Do what you feel now
Electric feel now
Do what you feel now
Electric feel now
Do what you feel now
Electric feel now
Do what you feel now
Electric feel now
Do what you feel now
Electric feel now

    A very good person and friend. Hes my best friend. Asked me to listen to this song. And hearin it the first time. I fell in love with it! So my best friend that I share my dear and genuine friendship with. I strongly believe I've fallen in love with him. When communicatin. Theres another side to him I hadnt seen before and I wonder, was he always deep n compassionate? How could I not see it before, maybe my maturity has something to do with it. But I hold back what happiness I feel and the butterflies in my tummy, lol. But he has no idea.
    When I'm about to call it a day from work, I tune the song in. And let gentle breeze caress my body and I often find myself thinking of my him. And tha warm feelin of happiness returns.

    This song is about drug use. "the verb 'to turn on' has many meanings within the drug-using community. It is a rich and magical term, encompassing an enormous variety of situations and activities. Its imagery is borrowed from the instantaneous processes of the electrical age… specific meaning of the word is using drugs… three interrelated connotations: (1) to give or have one's first drug experience-usually with marijuana; (2) to become high for the first time-with marijuana; (3) to use a drug-usually marijuana"(erich goode, ch. 6 - turning on: becoming a marijuana user, the marijuana smokers).

    I think it's just talking about a baeutiful women, but it also makes me think of nature. Like the interaction we have with mother nature, especially when you watch the music video it's celebrating the beauty of the Earth. Sorta lame but its the feeling I get when I listen to it, just being free and expressive. I love it makes me want to get naked and dance in the rainforest! Lol(:
