Get Some
Lykke Li Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Don't pull your pants, before I go down
Don't turn away, this is my time
Don't make demands, I don't take none
Just say a prayer that it gon' get done
Don't pull your pants before I go down
Don't turn away, this is my time
Like a shotgun needs an outcome
I'm your prostitute, you gon' get some
Like a shotgun needs an outcome
I'm your prostitute, you gon' get some

Go ahead, go way low, where I can do no harm
Go ahead, go way low in my honey lovin' arms
Go ahead, go way low, where I can do no wrong
Got you around my finger like a lonely lover's charm
Like a lonely lover's charm

And 'cause I can, I'm gon' go west
Just like a man, I'm the fortress
Like a shotgun, I can't be outdone
I'm your prostitute, you gon' get some
Like a shotgun needs an outcome
I'm your prostitute, you gon' get some

Go ahead, go way low, where I can do no harm
Go ahead, go way low in my honey lovin' arms
Go ahead, go way low, where I can do no wrong
Got you around my finger like a lonely lover's charm

Go ahead, go
Go ahead, go
Go ahead, go
Go ahead, go
Go ahead, go
Go ahead, go
Go ahead

Go ahead, go way low, where I can do no harm
Go ahead, go way low in my honey lovin' arms
Go ahead, go way low, where I can do no wrong
Got you around my finger like a lonely lover's charm
Like a lonely lover's charm
Like a lonely lover's charm

Overall Meaning

Lykke Li's song "Get Some" is an assertive and sexually charged song about taking control of one's own desires and pleasures. The lyrics "Don't pull your pants before I go down, Don't make demands, I don't take none, Just say a prayer that it gon' get done" all speak to the idea of empowering oneself to take charge in a sexual encounter. The lyrics continue to describe the singer as a "prostitute," but the use of the word seems to be more of a power play than an actual reference to sex work. The song is about owning one's sexuality and using it to get what one wants. The lines "Like a shotgun needs an outcome, I'm your prostitute, you gon' get some" further emphasize the idea of using one's power to get what they want.


The second half of the song shifts slightly in its meaning, with the lines "Go ahead, go way low, where I can do no harm, Got you around my finger like a lonely lover's charm" suggesting a desire for emotional intimacy as well as physical pleasure. The repetition of the phrase "Go ahead, go" throughout the song adds to the feeling of assertiveness and control.

Yessir! She's a very talented lyricist, truly poetic.
