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!

    I think it means that he changes his mind a lot and that he was hot and cool and awesome and nice, and then he turned cold and was mean and selfish and didn't care about his wife. That before they got married, they were just alike. Once they got married, he didn't want to be a husband anymore. They weren't meant to be togeather. I'm not trying to be mean, but this is what I think. Again: I

    This is what my old relationship was like!
    One min my boyfriend would say he loved me and then the next he didn't and it was so hard becuase I knew in my heart I loved him and he did love me too [he has bipola] that's why he acted like he did, so even though I knew he loved me it jst put me down so much when he said he didn't then said he did and even though we have broken up now I still really love him):

    I love this song so much. I am in a relationship with someone who is so like the guy in this song it isn't even funny. Scary thing is, he listened to the song and actually agreeed too one time. Lol. I just hope mine ends as well as the video did. As difficult as these guys are, for those of us girls in love with them, it is all worth it.

    Katy is pissed at her boyfriend becuase he can never decide on anything what so ever. So she figures well if you can't decide on anything then whole do you know if you truley like me at all. She knows that he won't change and it's time too go.
    But I like this song too. It's really fun and Katy shows off her vocals. Hopefully people will move past the "I Kissed A Girl", which has nothing wrong with it, to see her true musical talent.

    I like her songs. One of my cousins doesn't like her because of the song "I Kissed A Girl". Omg, I can't believe how close minded she is. I don't mind whether that song is for real or not, but I like her a lot. She can really sing, and she's pretty too. Really great song. Love the music video. Although she looks pretty weird with make up running down her face.

    Ok, I definitely have to agree with reulet, it's not giving a bad message. It's a good song! If you think this and I kissed A Girl are bad, then don't listen to them and don't comment on them, in my opinion, these songs are amazing! I think Katy Perry has found a place to stay with these songs, if you don't agree, fine, but don't come and crap up these great songs with hate messages.

    A bride was getting married and the priest ask " KATY DO YOU TAKE ALEXANDER AS YOUR LOVELY HUSBAND" and katy said I do. While alexander took a while for a decision and when its about a minute the song gets started and at the ending was that alexander said I do.
    My friend and like this song since she didn't like it anymore but now were not friends anymore because she keeps on starting the fight.

    I agree with vanish23. This song rocks!. This is a perfect song describing my ex bf. Deep down of my heart I appreciate this a lot, only people who are in this situation will understand it. It took me a long time to let him go since I was so weak but I had to do it because I can’ t let him disrespect me and treated me like crap with his love bi polar and mental disorder. I've been so broken that I can barely recover, I had to take pain killer and seeing the counselor since I’ ve been tortured by his verbal abuse. You can’ t really expect when he will blow up on you. One minute he says he loves you so much that would do anything for you, live for you and die for you, 10 mins later we got into a small argument, he yelled at me like someone is cutting his throat, said mean things, saying it’ s over and I’ m breaking with you, don’ t call me, don’ t email me, slam the door and left in angry. That’ s my relationship for 2 years. I had to let him go at the end b/c how he treated me is not love. I pray everyday to surmount the pain and move on. Thanks to Katy Perry, you are a part of making me alive each day because of this song!

    Dude lobonte didn't I say shut up and nobody cares what you have to say. Ummm. I think I did. So maybe you should listen to me and shut up since nobody cares about you or what you say! If anyone is dumb and retarded it must be you since you don't know what shut up means when everyone is telling you to shut up!. Oh and once again. Learn how to spell! Hehe lol! Gosh I'm so funny! Haha.
    Katy Perry is da bomb! ♥.

    Katy Perry's okay I guess. This is by far her best son but it's not the best song I've ever heard. Her song 'i kissed a girl' is filthy! It has such a bad message. She shouldn't have been allowed to even record it! It is so bad. It gives children the message they should kiss a girl they don't even know. And it was just an experiment! All her songs Suck! She's a sick b*h! I agree with Musicgrl05 and hxc. Why the hell would anyone in their right a* mind think she's good! Omg!

    And yet the songs that involve hookers and going to nightclubs and bringing home said hookers send good messages?
