Blurred Lines Lyrics
[Intro: Pharrell]
Everybody get up
Everybody get up
Hey, hey, hey
Hey, hey, hey
Hey, hey, hey

[Verse 1: Robin Thicke]
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
[Pharell:] Everybody get up

[Pre-chorus: Robin Thicke]
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
Hey, hey, hey
You don't need no papers
Hey, hey, hey
That man is not your maker

[Chorus: Robin Thicke]
And that's why I'm gon' take a 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
[Pharell:] Everybody get up

[Verse 2: Robin Thicke]
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
Hey, hey, hey
You wanna hug me
Hey, hey, hey
What rhymes with hug me?
Hey, hey, hey

[Pre-chorus: Robin Thicke]
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
Hey, hey, hey
You don't need no papers
Hey, hey, hey
That man is not your maker
Hey, hey, hey

[Chorus: Robin Thicke]
And that's why I'm gon' take a 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
[Pharell:] Everybody get up
I hate these blurred lines
I know you want it
I hate them lines
I know you want it
I hate them lines
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

[Verse 3: T.I.]
One thing I ask of you
Let me be the one you back that ass to
Go, from Malibu, to Paris, boo
Yeah, I had a bitch, but she ain't bad as you
So hit me up when you passing through
I'll give you something big enough to tear your ass in two
Swag on, even when you dress casual
I mean it's almost unbearable
Then, honey you're not there when I'm
With my foresight bitch you pay me by
Nothing like your last guy, he too square for you
He don't smack that ass and pull your hair like that
So I just watch and wait for you to salute
But you didn't pick
Not many women can refuse this pimpin'
I'm a nice guy, but don't get it if you get with me

[Bridge: Robin Thicke]
Shake the vibe, get down, get up
Do it like it hurt, like it hurt
What you don't like work?

[Pre-chorus: Robin Thicke]
Baby can you breathe? I got this from Jamaica
It always works for me, Dakota to Decatur, uh huh
No more pretending
Hey, hey, hey
Cause now you winning
Hey, hey, hey
Here's our beginning

[Chorus: Robin Thicke]
I always wanted a good girl
(Pharell: Everybody get up)
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
(Pharell: Everybody get up)
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

[Outro: Pharrell]
Everybody get up
Everybody get up
Hey, hey, hey
Hey, hey, hey
Hey, hey, hey

Blurred Lines Info:

• Blurred Lines features guest vocals from American rapper T.I. and American singer and producer Pharrell Williams. All three share writing credits on the song, while production was done by Pharrell.

• It was produced by Thicke and Pharrell with an intention of creating a sound similar to Marvin Gaye's "Got to Give It Up". The song was completed in less than an hour. In an interview with GQ's Stelios Phili, Thicke explained: "Pharrell and I were in the studio and [...] I was like, 'Damn, we should make something like that ["Got to Give It Up"], something with that groove.' Then he started playing a little something and we literally wrote the song in about half an hour and recorded it.

He and I would go back and forth where I'd sing a line and he'd be like, 'Hey, hey, hey!' We started acting like we were two old men on a porch hollering at girls like, 'Hey, where you going, girl? Come over here!'" In a separate interview, Thicke clarified the meaning of the song's title, saying it referred to "the good-girl/bad-girl thing and what’s appropriate."

• Robin Thicke explained the song's meaning to The Daily Star: "It is mostly throwaway fun, but naturally Pharrell and I - being in love with our wives, having kids and loving our mothers - we have a lot of respect for women," he said. "So the way we were seeing it is, 'I know man tries to domesticate you but you're an animal, you are just like any man'. "It is also about the blurred line between a good girl and bad girl, people who want to get naughty," he added.

Robin Thicke admitted to SiriusXM's The Howard Stern Show that his sexual escapades with Paula Patton, inspired the song: "'Blurred Lines is very much about my wife," he said, "It's about how she's a good girl, but she wants to be a bad girl. My wife is Mrs. Good Girl, but gradually over our marriage, I've turned her into a bad girl." "I mean naughty, sexually, yeah," he added. "I won't get into too many details out of respect to her but she likes it all. We've done just about everything."

• Thicke addressed the debate over the song's Lyrics during an interview with Today's Matt Lauer and Savannah Guthrie. "When we made the song, we had nothing but the most respect for women and - my wife, I've been with the same woman since I was a teenager," the singer said. "So for us," he continued, "we were just trying to make a funny song and sometimes the Lyrics get misconstrued when you're just trying to put people on the dance floor and have a good time, but we had no idea it would stir this much controversy. We only had the best intentions."

Thicke went on to claim that the debate over the song is a positive thing as it stirs conversation. "It's supposed to make us talk about what's important and what the relationship between men and women is," he said, "but if you listen to the Lyrics it says 'That man is not your maker' - it's actually a feminist movement within itself."

• The track broke the record for the all-time highest number of radio impressions during a single week in the US, with 219.8 million impressions in the first week of August 2013, surpassing the 8-year old record of 212.2 million set by Mariah Carey's "We Belong Together."

• A jury determined that the song copied Marvin Gaye's 1977 hit Got To Give It Up. Marvin Gaye's family was awarded $7.3 million in damages - almost half of the $16 million in profits.
