The Shy One
B*Witched Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

What's a girl supposed to do
With a fool like you?
Don't go trying the key in the door
'Cause it won't turn for you

Get up on the ceiling
You don't know what I'm feeling
Act your age and not your shoe size
Get your wheels in motion
And dump that crazy notion
Get your toys
Get out of my way

[Chorus]
Baby, it's a lie now
And you will find out
I'm the shy one
Whoa, yeah, (what you gonna do?)
What's the situation?
It's just temptation
You're with the shy one

Let me reveal one secret to you
This lion's in her cage
Treat her well and treat her good
Or she'll devour you

Get up on the ceiling
You don't know what I'm feeling
Act your age and not your shoe size
Get your wheels in motion
And dump that crazy notion
Get your toys
Get out of my way

[Chorus]

(What's going on?)
(Come On)

Middle eight
Tell me
What you want me maybe to say
I can't make sense of what's strolling by
It's oh so clear (yeah)

[Chorus]

(What you gonna do?)
(Yeah)
Maybe I ain't so shy




You're with the shy one
Shy

Overall Meaning

The lyrics to B*Witched's song The Shy One describe a woman's frustration with a man who is not treating her well. She begins by asking what she is supposed to do with a fool like him, warning him not to try to enter her life again as he won't be welcomed. The woman urges him to act his age and stop making ridiculous assumptions, ultimately telling him to get out of her way so she can move on.


In the chorus of the song, the woman reveals that she is actually the shy one in the relationship, which is why she has put up with his poor treatment for so long. However, she is done with his games and lies, and he will find out the truth about her. The middle eight section of the song is somewhat vague, with the woman wondering what the man wants her to say and struggling to make sense of what is happening around her. The song ends with the woman stating that maybe she is not as shy as he assumes, but in the end, he will be the one left alone.
