Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Can I get to know you babe?

Can I get to know you babe?
Show you things, you think you seein' dreams
But just don't tell your team
Keep it on the down low, keep-keep it on the down low
Low, low, low, low
Keep it on the down low
Low, low, low, low
Keep it on the down low
Down low, keep it on the down low
Low, low, low, low-low-low-low-low

No rush though baby, I'll be your shotty body
I'll let you do the naughty, make me go, "La-di-dadi"
Don't tell them secrets, I'll give 'em reasons to keep 'em bae
But this ain't creeping, nah ah, this is just freakin'
Papa, see you every weekend, ah ah
And I'm speakin', you and me can make sure nobody peekin'
So can I get to know?

Can I get to know you babe?
Show you things, you think you seein' dreams
But just don't tell your team
Keep it on the down low, keep-keep it on the down low
Low, low, low, low
Keep it on the down low
Low, low, low, low
Keep it on the down low
Down low, keep it on the down low
Low, low, low, low-low-low-low-low

So touch me baby, let's get this party started
I'll show you how I ride it, let you know I'm 'bout it, 'bout it
You got me feenin', a perfect reason for pleasin' babe
I hear you breathin' in my ear, you got me screamin' babe
Baby boy I'm tryin' to know ya
See the shotgun that you hide in ya holster
We can get down on the ground, little sober
Do you got time for an hour of Doja?
So many things that I'm dyin' to show ya
No pics when I sign for exposure
Just ridin' over and over and over and over

Can I get to know you babe?
Show you things, you think you seein' dreams
But just don't tell your team
Keep it on the down low, keep-keep it on the down low
Low, low, low, low
Keep it on the down low
Low, low, low, low
Keep it on the down low
Down low, keep it on the down low
Low, low, low, low-low-low-low-low

Just don't say a thing, we'll be safe on the low
Let them wonder, babe, mystery keeps us close
Just don't say a thing, we'll be safe on the low
Let them wonder, babe, mystery keeps us close

Can I get to know you babe?
Show you things, you think you seein' dreams
But just don't tell your team
Keep it on the down low, keep-keep it on the down low
Low, low, low, low
Keep it on the down low
Low, low, low, low
Keep it on the down low
Down low, keep it on the down low
Low, low, low, low-low-low-low-low

Overall Meaning

The song "Down Low" by Doja Cat talks about keeping a relationship under wraps and away from the public eye. The singer is interested in getting to know someone better and wants to explore the possibility of being together without the involvement of others. She urges the person not to reveal their secrets and keep their relationship on the 'down low,' as they privately spend intimate moments together. She encourages him to touch her, and they explore each other's bodies as they discover each other's likes and dislikes.


Doja Cat's "Down Low" is a slow and steamy R&B song that oozes intimacy, a feature more prevalent in her repertoire of music. The song's lyrics reveal a woman who is confident in herself and what she wants in a relationship. She is unapologetically sensual, and she expresses her desires freely, which creates a captivating and alluring vibe. The song samples Adina Howard's "Freak Like Me" and has been praised for bringing the nostalgic sound of '90s R&B to life.
