If You Seek Amy Lyrics

La la la, la la la
La la la, la la la

Oh baby baby have you seen Amy tonight?
Is she in the bathroom is she smokin' up outside? Oh
Oh baby baby does she take a piece of lime
For the drink that I'ma buy her do you know just what she likes?...

    This song DOES NOT HAVE TO DO WITH SEX! The f-u-c-k is just a coincidence. In the music video, she appears as the "perfect women" aka the 50's stereotype. Shes singing about how everybody expects her to be so flawless. Also in the music video you see a girl near the end that is dressed in Britney's school girl outfit from her first music video. That's about how everyone expected her to be a perfect innocent child forever and she's just not that person in real life. The house and everything going on inside represents what people think is going on inside her head. Everything on the outside of the house is how everybody expects her to be.

    I just want to go to the party she's gonna go,
    can't somebody take me home,
    ha ha, he he, ha ha ho,

    She is bugged by people pointing out her flaws everywhere she's goes. She want's to do is live her life and have fun.

    Oh baby baby have you seen Amy tonight?
    Is she in the bathroom is she smokin' up outside? Oh
    Oh baby baby does she take a piece of lime
    For the drink that I'mma buy her do you know just what she likes? Oh

    This part is about the news reporter that made the rumors about Britney. "Take a piece of lime." Do you honestly know what this news reporter does in her regular life? She could be a terrible person so why would you believe her? Hence, "is she smokin up outside?" The "drink i'mma buy her" represents how she's getting the attention from her lies about Britney.

    I've only seen her once or twice but boy she knows my face.

    She makes up an awful lot of rumors for someone that barely knows Britney. How could she possibly know all of these things if she's only met her a few times?

    Love me, hate me, but can't you see what I see,
    All of the boys and all of the girls are begging to If You Seek Amy

    “Love me, hate me, but can't you see what I see” People don't bother to picture life in her shoes and respect her feelings. Yet there are a few people that actually do. The “All of the boys and all of the girls are begging to If You Seek Amy” The people just ignore her emotions are just enjoying the rumors that the news reporter is making.

    Amy says she's gonna meet me up
    I don't know where or when and now there closing up the club.

    “Amy says she's gonna meet me up” The people that dislike her and believe the rumors are everywhere. “I don't know where or when and now there closing up the club.” People dislike her so badly they don't even want her in their presence.

    Tell me if you've seen her
    Cuz I've been waiting here forever
    Oh baby baby if you Seek Amy tonight
    Oh baby baby we'll do whatever you like

    “Tell me if you've seen her, Cuz I've been waiting here forever” This part is about how this problem has been with her for a long time now and she just want's to avoid it. “Oh baby baby if you Seek Amy tonight, Oh baby baby we'll do whatever you like” People assume from the rumors that she does whatever the heck she wants even if its bad. Which is not true. Britney's turned down Playboy.

    “Oh, so what you want about me?” Obviously, everybody loves the gossip about her and just wants more of it.

    La la la, la la la
    La la la, la la la

    It's just a simple tune. Children can only usually play simple music on instruments for example. It could represent the innocence everyone expected her to have forever; or how everyone's just happy about her misery since its also kind of a happy tune.

    Britney is singing how everyone wants to have sex with her, that she is irresistible and that she has phenomenal sex appeal. Once you understand the 'If You Seek Amy' F - U - C - K Me part (also explained above by anonymous) the rest of the lyrics make sense, they are not very cryptic! The music video for this song is a good description aswell.

    This song is about sex, people. Or rather, how sexy Britney Spears claims to be.

    Say "If You Seek Amy" really fast. It sounds like you're saying "F - * - C - K me".

    So the entire line would be,
    "All of the boys and all of the girls are begging to F*ck me."

    I agree with whoever's post is the number 1 top rated... I just want to point out that the If U Seek Amy (f-u-**) is significant in the senses that the final line in the chorus is saying it doesn't matter what she does anymore, everyone is trying to screw her over in any way they can...

    While the song is about Britney's continued sexuality post-breakdown, it is also a
    "Fuck you" to the media, which is why the video starts with a news report and ends with the media going crazy around her.

    "Love me, hate me, say what you want about me" - and they will. Nothing she does will make them leave her alone.

    "But [everyone] is begging to fuck me" - She's still one of the most wanted/popular celebrities on the planet despite the hate.

    Basically, what she's saying is she's still got it!

    There are other hints about the media "It's so hard to see with all these people standing in the way" and a few hints that she's playing the part of a fan or a paparazzo too - "I can't get her off my brain", "Do you know what she was wearing and what she was like?" "Do you know if she was going out her mind?"

    It's all about playing different roles which is exactly what the video shows us - on the inside of the house where no one can see her, she's sexy, frustrated and dark. But once she's on display she's primped, perfect and cutesy and no one is the wiser.

    When this song is played on the radio it is often called If You See Amy - Obviously because it has to be censored as she is meaning 'F - U - C - K me'

    In the song spears is looking for woman named amy and all though it appears 2 b about sex it's actually about how society percieves her life. Look it up on wikipedia.

    Say If You Seek Amy out loud, fairly fast, and it will sound like you're saying F-U-C-K me.
    So when she says:
    “All of the boys and all of the girls are begging to If You Seek Amy”
    She's pretty much saying:
    "All of the boys and all of the girls are begging to f*ck me"

    Also,in the official video,at the beggining the on the news report sort of thing it says:
    "Britney Spears song spells out obscenity in disguise"
    showing it has a weird meaning..

    mmmmkkkkayyyyeee!!!!!!! this song totally blows and would make no sense if she wasnt reffering it to "sex" im shure brittany has been through alot and been exposed in the tabloids and such, but look at her musical career, its all based on sex and love, it has been ever since she was young..... oops i did it again i played with your heart got lost in the game.... basically says oops i cheated on you.. my bad! and now yall are trying to say that shes trying to be emotional and stuff secretly in her music now..... i say noooo friggin way... same ol brittney, same ol sex machine!

    i agree with konan to a certain extent. however, IF YOU SEEK AMY, is perhaps a self consolation for britney. amiss all the trails and criticism, she wants to console her self that she still has that sex appeal and everyone wants to fuck her. hence, "love me hate me, say what you want about me, but all of the boys and all of the girls are begging to if you seek amy".

    konan: your interpretation fits well, as long as you haven't seen the video and ignore the "all of the boys and all of the girls are begging to if you seek amy" part. once you bring in the video,it becomes harder to interpret it that way. the fight interpretation also gets thrown out in the video too. there is no violence, and until the very end, nothing is mentioned about reporters. it could be about how nothing is how it seems and about how behind closed doors, you never really know what's going on.

    Konan it is about sex "all the boys and all the girls are begging to if you seek amy"? now does that make sense or does all the boys and all the girls are begging to fuck me sound better?

    I think this song is the opposite of that song "Lucky" where she played the part of the beautiful songstress, as well as the fan feeling sorry for the pop star. In this song, Britney is playing the part of the goody goody housewife and caring mother, as well as the naughty party girl, two completely different sides. She's showing that yeah, even though she has a wild side and sings explictly and is provocative, she can still be a mother and there's a whole different side to her that the public doesn't see.

    This interpretation has been marked as poor. view anyway

    Amy is her alter-ego. On that particular night she (Britney) is being hounded by the paparazzi and she wants to become Amy. She then comes to the conclusion that even if everybody loves her or everybody hates her, they all still want to 'if you seek amy' f-u-c-k me.

    I believe this really great song is about how sexy Britney really is inside. And she's one of my favorite artists too.
