Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

N:Am I throwing you off?
T:Nope!
N:Didn't think so...
T:How ya doin' young lady

The feeling that you gave me really drives me crazy
You dont have a player on your trunk
I was at a loss of words
First time that we spoke

N:If ya lookin' for a girl that'll treat you right
If you lookin' for her in the day time in the light

T:You might be the type if I play my cards right
I'll find out by the end of the night

N: You expect me to just let you hit it
But will you still respect me if you get it?

T:All I can do is try, gim'one chance
What's the problem?
I don't see no ring on your hand
I be the first to admit it,
I'm curious about you, you seem so innocent

N: You wanna get in my world, get lost in it
Boy I'm tired of running, lets walk for a minute

Chorus-
T:Promiscuous girl
Wherever you are
I'm all alone
And it's you that I want

N: Promiscuous boy
You already know
That I'm all yours
What you waiting for?

T:Promiscuous girl
You're teasing me
You know what I want
And I got what you need

N: Promiscuous boy
Let's get to the point
Cause we're on a roll
You ready?

Verse-
N: Roses are red
Some diamonds are blue
Chivalry is dead
But you're still kinda cute

T:Hey! I can't keep my mind off you
Who you with, do you mind if I come through

N: I'm out of this world come with me to my planet
Get you on my level do you think that you can handle it?

T:They call me Thomas
Last name Crown
Recognize game
I'm a lay mine's down

N: I'm a big girl I can handle myself
But if I get lonely I may need your help
Pay attention to me I don't talk for my health

T:I want you on my team

N: So does everybody else.

T:Baby we can keep it on the low [low]
Let your guard down ain't nobody gotta know [know]
If you with it girl I know a place we can go

T: Bring that on?

N: You know what I mean

T:Girl, I'm a freak you shouldn't say those things

N:I'm only trying to get inside of your brain
To see if you can work me the way you say

Is your game M.V.P. like Steve Nash

Chorus-
T: Promiscuous Girl
Wherever you are
I'm all alone
And it's you that I want

N: Promiscuous Boy
I'm calling your name
But you're driving me crazy
The way you're making me wait

T: Promiscuous Girl
You're teasing me
You know what I want
And I got what you need

N: Promiscuous Boy




We're one and the same
So we don't gotta play games no more

Overall Meaning

The lyrics of Nelly Furtado's Promiscuous girl tells the story of a young lady who is confident in herself and her sexuality. She does not shy away from being the one who initiates the conversation and sets the tone for the relationship. The opening lines demonstrate her confidence as she asks the man if she's throwing him off, to which he replies that she isn't. She then goes on to express the intense desire that he ignites in her, suggesting that despite her sexual confidence, she feels like he has the power over her. She asks him if he's looking for a girl who will treat him right, teasing that if he plays his cards right, he may get what he wants.


The chorus of the song establishes the sexual tension between the two, with the man calling the woman a "promiscuous girl" before stating that she's the only one he wants. Similarly, the woman labels the man a "promiscuous boy" but declares that she's already all his. The lyrics indicate a mutual attraction and tease the possibility of them being intimate without explicitly stating it.


The verses of the song are filled with sexual innuendos as the pair play around with each other, talking about roses, diamonds, and chivalry. Thomas Crown, the man in the song, is characterized as a confident player, who is charming but not overly smooth. Nelly challenges him, suggesting that he needs to prove himself to her before they can get intimate. The song ends with both parties agreeing to come together and acknowledging that they are both into each other.
