[Pharrell & Robin Thicke Intro:]
Everybody get up, WOO!
Hey, hey, hey
Hey, hey, hey
Hey, hey, hey

[Robin Thicke Verse 1:]
If you can't hear what I'm trying to say
If you can't read from the same page
Maybe I'm going deaf
Maybe I'm going blind
Maybe I'm out of my mind

[Robin Thicke Bridge:]
Ok, now he was close
Tried to domesticate you
But you're an animal
Baby, it's in your nature
Just let me liberate you
You don't need no papers
That man is not your maker
And that's why I'm gon' take a

[Robin Thicke Hook:]
Good girl
I know you want it
I know you want it
I know you want it
You're a good girl
Can't let it get past me
You're far from plastic
Talk about getting blasted
I hate these blurred lines
I know you want it
I know you want it
I know you want it
But you're a good girl
The way you grab me
Must wanna get nasty
Go ahead, get at me

[Robin Thicke Verse 2:]
What do they make dreams for
When you got them jeans on
What do we need steam for
You the hottest bitch in this place
I feel so lucky, you wanna hug me
What rhymes with hug me
Hey!

[Bridge:]
Ok, now he was close
Tried to domesticate you
But you're an animal
Baby, it's in your nature
Just let me liberate you
You don't need no papers
That man is not your maker
And that's why I'm gon' take a

[Robin Thicke Hook:]
Good girl
I know you want it
I know you want it
I know you want it
You're a good girl
Can't let it get past me
You're far from plastic
Talk about getting blasted
I hate these blurred lines
I know you want it
I know you want it
I know you want it
But you're a good girl
The way you grab me
Must wanna get nasty
Go ahead, get at me

[T.I. Verse 3:]
Hustle Gang Homie
One thing I ask of you
Lemme be the one you back that ass up to
From Malibu to Paris boo
Had a bitch, but she ain't bad as you
So, hit me up when you pass through
I'll give you something big enough to tear your ass in two
Swag on 'em even when you dress casual
I mean, it's almost unbearable
In a hundred years not dare would I
Pull a Pharcyde, let you pass me by
Nothin' like your last guy, he too square for you
He don't smack that ass and pull your hair like that
So I'm just watching and waitin'
For you to salute the true big pimpin'
Not many women can refuse this pimping
I'm a nice guy, but don't get confused, this pimpin'

[Robin Thicke Breakdown:]
Shake your rump
Get down, get up-a
Do it like it hurt, like it hurt
What you don't like work
Hey!

[Robin Thicke Verse 4:]
Baby, can you breathe
I got this from Jamaica
It always works for me
Dakota to Decatur
No more pretending
Cause now you're winning
Here's our beginning
I always wanted a

[Robin Thicke Hook:]
Good girl
I know you want it
I know you want it
I know you want it
You're a good girl
Can't let it get past me
You're far from plastic
Talk about getting blasted
I hate these blurred lines
I know you want it
I know you want it
I know you want it
But you're a good girl
The way you grab me
Must wanna get nasty
Go ahead, get at me

[Pharrell & Robin Thicke Bridge:]
Everybody get up
Everybody get up
Everybody get up
Hey, Hey, Hey
Hey, Hey, Hey
Hey, Hey, Hey

[Pharrell & Robin Thicke Outro:]
Everybody get up, WOO!
Hey, hey, hey
Hey, hey, hey
Hey, hey, hey

    Marvin's "Got to Give It Up" was about being turned on while hanging out in the club and the girl turning him on to where he wanted to give into her IF SHE DECIDED to have sex with him. I was okay with Blurred Lines until the TI part about bending her over, from Malibu to whereever and taking her in the behind. Tacky, unsexy, and sounds like men wanting to run a train on the girl. Don't sound like a girl they respect, just one they would use sexually. It appears tha message is that too many women claim to be good girls but allow the men to treat them like they have depicted in the song, like this is more the norm than not. Look at the title. The music is great, lyrics, not so much. After listening to lyrics songs by other male artists, this seems to be a trend, maligning the women. Apparently, the guys are calling you ladies out on misprepresenting yourselves. Not good ladies. You claim to have standards but then lower them for the guys. Hunters like to work for what they get. Set a standard and stick to it. It will help you weed out the riffraff. You need one good man. Not a thousand. Plus the male ego hate to think about other men having had what belongs to them. You want to attract someone who is just as particular as you are.

    No more demeaning than Marvin Gaye's "Got to Give it Up" Same message, different words. Nothing wrong with consenting adults having some fun. If you don't like it, don't listen.

    Tune, beat, rhythm DO Notbe Fooled. He is speaking about sexually forcing himself / men onto woman after making them high. Blurred lines; is the same many rapist say "she wanted it, by the way she responds if too drunk or drugged up". Ladies and gents please respect each other. Robyn sad to think this is your view of woman.

    Hmmm, I love the music, makes me want to move. After reading the lyrics, hmm, not so sure. Wish I hadn't read them.

    I think that is ridiculous. Blurred lines go both ways and woman are actually allowed to be sexual beings. I don't think anyone was being persuaded by anything but charm and good looks...NO VIOLENCE. I am liberal nut and I am not reading that shit into it. Hell I am 56 years old and danced all over the room several times tonight with this song. This is the kind of song you waited to hear at the bar so all your girls could get on the floor and dance. Fun stuff. There are lots of woman being raped in the Sudan, little girls being castrated. If you want a cause get on that and leave a silly song alone...
