Blurred Lines Lyrics

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

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...

    Everyone has their own interpretation of "art"; whether that be song, dance, a painting.. whatever. As adults, we can all agree that this song is about sex. Someone has made a connection about the lyrics in this song and common phrases rapists have said to their victims before, during or after the attack. I do see a connection, I really do believe the blurred line is getting mixed messages from messages from someone and not knowing exactly.. and the song is about convincing her. I've analyized the lyrics words for word, and well here's what I interpret:
    Verse 1, Robin Thicke, pretty much says if you can't tell I want you, "maybe I'm going out of my mind".
    Bridge, Robin Thicke, is taking about how she's going through problems in her relationship. The woman was engaged, hanging out at the bar, and he's saying you don't him and that married life, have fun. ..with me lol
    Hook, is taking about how she's a good woman wanting that married life and what not. You're a real woman, far from plastic. The woman's saying no, I don't want sex but a I want to have a good time. I hate these mixed messages. The way you dance with me says you want me. You must want me, I know you want me.
    Verse 2, I think means he's saying he's allowed to at least check her out & fantasize because of how good she looks. He feels lucky she hugs him, and because she hugs him, she must want to fug him, right? Or no maybe he's just suggesting it again.
    Verse 3 with TI, I think he's trying talking about what a "big balla" he is. Wants to travel the world with her, or at least from Malibu to Paris. And again he's trying to convince her to leave her square dude that wants marriage and what and hang out with a pimp like me. We can also do some anal.
    Breakdown, is saying let's go so hard it hurts. Oh you like laying on your back? Cool!
    Verse 4, he gets the girl. Talking about his weed from Jamaica and more traveling. And now he's happy he's got a good girl who cooks and shit.
    Hey hey hey
    I don't know if persistency is key in this situation, most people call that sexual harassment. Law doesn't apply to the wealthy tho

    I think it's rubbish, agenda driven music performed by talentless fools that steal their tunes.

    Really? This song needs interpreting. It's not like it's The National or anything. Pretty straightforward. It's just like everything else on pop radio, crude and sexually suggestive because that's what sells and gets you on magazine covers.

    So many of you are ignorant. This song isnt about rape just as Ring around the rosie is not about the bubonic plague. That occured in the mid 14th century and the second outbreak in the 1600s. The oldest written document of this song is only from the late 1800s and was mentioned then to be about 100 years old. Still, the versions are different then the most recent variation and has nothing to do with the black death. Not to mention neither the bubonic nor the pnuemonic plagues had a symptom of red marks, they had swollen glands. Further the ashes part is also wrong because crematiom didnt exist in Europe at the tome of even the more recent outbreak. Its a fun myth to spread but its untrue. So is the alleged rape aspect of this song. Grow up.

    Girl was in a blah relationship, same ole kinda sex, never learned about true lovemaking. Shes hot, she deserves better, he loves her, he wants to teach her about reallllll sex; pulling hair, smacking ass, anal, sucking , licking, cuddling.
    Love the song!!

    It's a song about date rape further proving that rape culture is a real issue. And don't say it's catchy. It's catchy in the same way ring around the rosy is catchy before you become less ignorant and realize it's about the plague. People say: "Oh nooo, rape is bad. Everyone knows that." But these are the same people singing about how "that's why imma take a good girl....I know u want it...." You people disgust me.

    its about a guy trying to take a good girl,who is nice and sweet,and try to turn her into a bad girl,and seduces her with sex, so she can become a bad girl verse/"that's why imma take a good gir....I know u want it...but your a good girl" hope that explains
