Gorilla
Bruno Mars Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Oh I got a bottle full of liquor with a cocaine
Kicker and I'm feeling like I'm thirty feet tall
So lay it down, lay it down
You got your legs up in the sky with the devil in your eyes
Let me hear you say you want it all
Say it now, say it now

Look what you doing, look what you done
But in this jungle you can't run
'Cause what I got for you
I promise is a killer, you'll be banging on my chest
Bang bang, gorilla

You and me baby making love like gorillas
You and me baby making love like gorillas

Yeah I got a fistful of your hair
But you don't look like you're scared
You're just smiling tell me daddy it's yours
'Cause you know how I like it use a dirty little lover
If the neighbors call the cops, call the sheriff
Call the swat we don't stop
We keep rocking while they knocking on our door
And you're screaming give it to me baby
Give it to me motherfucker

Oh look what you doing, look what you done
But in this jungle you can't run
'Cause what I got for you
I promise is a killer, you'll be banging on my chest
Bang bang, gorilla

You and me baby making love like gorillas
You and me baby making love like gorillas

I bet you never ever felt so good, so good
I got your body trembling like it should, it should
You'll never be the same baby once I'm done with you

Oh you with me baby making love like gorillas




You and me baby we'll be fuckin' it like gorillas
You and me baby making love like gorillas

Overall Meaning

The lyrics to Bruno Mars’s song “Gorilla” are highly sexual and provocative. The singer is indulging in a bottle full of liquor, laced with cocaine and feeling larger than life. He implores his partner to lay it all down, to let the devil in her come out, and to tell him that she wants it all. The next verse describes the sexual act, which is wild, aggressive, and without boundaries or inhibitions. They are making love like gorillas, and the singer is owning his dominance and sexual prowess, making his partner tremble and enticing her to submit to him.


The use of animal imagery in this song connotes a primal, instinctual quality to the sexual act. The gorilla symbolizes strength, dominance, and unbridled passion. Bruno’s lyrics, although explicit and explicit, suggest a mutual exchange of pleasure, where both partners are fully present, active, and engaged. Instead of using soft, romantic imagery, Bruno opts for a gritty, raw tone that emphasizes the carnal nature of the sexual experience.


Overall, “Gorilla” is a boldly sexual, provocative, and energizing song that embraces lust, passion, and sexual domination. It challenges conventions of romantic love and relationships and offers a glimpse into the untamed, animalistic side of human desire.
