You Really Got Me Lyrics

Girl, you really got me goin'
You got me so I don't know what I'm doin'
Yeah, you really got me now
You got me so I can't sleep at night

Yeah, you really got me now
You got me so I don't know what I'm doin', now
Oh yeah, you really got me...

    This song is all about just being crazy in love, and expressing it in a sing-song sort of way.

    "See, don't ever set me free
    I always wanna be by your side
    Girl, you really got me now
    You got me so I can't sleep at night"

    The guy is obviously half-crazed with the thought that this feeling might not last forever, so he feels that he needs to tell this girl that he is madly in love with her, in order for her to love him to her fullest, so she won't ever let him go. Undoubtedly, the man is in love.

    "Girl, you really got me going"

    A classic song from the kinks, and whilst it doesn't have any theme of progression (in lyrics or musically) it's just a very fun song, and that's a big part of music, once you break it down to a mathematical formula, it's just not fun anymore
