Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

So hot
Out the box
Can we pick up the pace?
Turn it up,
Heat it up
I need to be entertained
Push the limit
Are you with it?
Baby, don't be afraid
I'm a hurt 'ya real good, baby

Let's go
It's my show
Baby, do what I say
Don't trip off the glitz
That I'm gonna display
I told ya
I'm a hold ya down until you're amazed
Give it to ya 'til your screaming my name

No escaping when I start
Once I'm in I own your heart
There's no way you'll ring the alarm
So hold on until it's over

Oh, do you know what you got into?
Can you handle what I'm 'bout to do?
Cause it's about to get rough for you
I'm here for your entertainment

Oh, I bet you thought that I was soft and sweet
You thought an angel swept you off your feet
Well I'm about to turn up the heat
I'm here for your entertainment

It's alright
You'll be fine
Baby, I'm in control
Take the pain
Take the pleasure
I'm the master of both
Close your eyes
Not your mind
Let me into your soul
I'm a work ya 'til your totally blown

No escaping when I start
Once I'm in I own your heart
There's no way to ring the alarm
So hold on until it's over

Oh, do you know what you got into?
Can you handle what I'm 'bout to do?
Cause it's about to get rough for you
I'm here for your entertainment

Oh, I bet you thought that I was soft and sweet
You thought an angel swept you off your feet
Well I'm about to turn up the heat
I'm here for your entertainment

Oh oh, mm

Woah

Oh, I bet you thought that I was soft and sweet (bet ya thought)
You thought an angel swept you off your feet




Well I'm about to turn up the heat (turn up the heat)

@truesailorcomet

lol, i was the same and was an adolescent about to choose christina aguilera's "genie in a bottle" for a talent show, luckily, the adults in charge didn't let me, i didn't even think about the meaning of the lyrics, i loved the music and the voice was in my rangeXD never thought about the words "you gotta rub me the right way honey", lolXD

@heyhailey8108

Idk if people understand how iconic this actually is. This is an openly gay, flamboyant man singing a song that is clearly very sexual, or at least has plenty of sexual double entendre's. Not only that, but this was a mainstream hit and still is to this day.

@nickas222

this only prooves that holywood is run by satanists

@-Secret

Wait he's gay? I always thought he was straight. And I don't know, seeing a straight guy being so opened with this had just seemed so awesome to me. Like being gay was such a bad thing back then, goodness forbid a straight guy was okay with things like this, but at the same time it's still cool because it shows back then he wasnt even afraid to be open about it. Legit someone who broke boundaries within the industry

@aishaexo-l611

The song is androgynous, means that is not directed by a specific gender, but the video is very sugestive even tho that the only characters that are touching Adam sexually are female hands, he is obviously there for both genders.
