Rock With You Lyrics

Girl, Close Your Eyes
Let That Rhythm Get Into You
Don't Try To Fight It
There Ain't Nothin' That You Can Do
Relax Your Mind
Lay Back And Groove With Mine
You Got To Feel That Heat
And We Can Ride The Boogie
Share That Beat Of...

    I mean it probably is talking about live in bed all day and all night. He says “don’t fight it” as if she didn’t really want it and he forced maybe. And they have a nice relationship and it could have been his girlfriend and they just wanted to maybe try what love felt like.

    I agree with the other guy, this is obviously about Rock, Paper, Scissors. I don't see what else the lyrics could possibly mean. Hopefully this girl gets some paper before ol' Mikey gets to her with the rock.

    Initially, I thought it meant to dance ("rock") or that it may have meant to make sweet, sweet love ("rock") all day and all night. In retrospect after reviewing some of the song's history and lyrics, the song seems to be symbolic of a passionate and intense relationship that is enduring and everlasting. The nature of the relationship seems intoxicating and mesmerizing ("Don't try to fight it, there ain't nothing that you can do"..."Girl when we dance, there's a magic that must be love"). It is a love song ("You know that love survives and we can rock forever") it illustrates the magical nature of being with that special someone and when it is just that person and you, how dynamic the interaction (to rock with one another) must be.

    From the master of Pop, 'Rock With You' delivers grand mastery. The opening line:
    "Girl, close your eyes" leads us to think that this is about some lover of Michaels, but think again. Really. Oh no, this ain't about love, its about the age old game of Rock, Scissors, Paper.

    "Let that rhythm get into you": timing of the hands pumping before the draw.

    "Relax your mind, Lay back and groove with mine": Mikey is daring this girl to guess his draw; don't fight it, roll with the groove.

    But Mr. Jackson is only teasing. As the song ebbs into the chorus, we are shown his evil side. He plans to throw rocks all night, "Rock you into day, sunlight".

    One tough cookie. Hopefully the song's damsel has some paper in her arsenal.

    In this song, Michael wants to "rock" with the person in question (most likely a girlfriend, as the lyrics point out) or basically enjoy spending time together, whether it being during the daytime or through the night.
