Shuffle Song Of The Day (5/6/19): “Got You (Where I Want You)” By The Flys

“Got You (Where I Want You)” is a song by the alternative rock band The Flys that appeared as the lead single from their 1998 album Holiday Man. Easily their most popular song, it also peaked at number 5 on the Billboard Rock Chart during its release year, and was also featured in the soundtrack for the movie Disturbing Behavior from that same year. I love this song a lot, mainly because it is, simply put, so 90’s. Everything about the mood of this song is like a time machine back to the alternative rock hey day of the 90’s, which is arguably the greatest period of music of all time. This song is also interesting because it’s lyrics can have many different connotations based on whatever the listener wants to hear them as. It can either be a really sweet song about falling in love, or a really creepy, almost rapey, song about being an obsessed stalker, comparable to “Every Breath You Take” by The Police. However you want to see it, it’s still a jam nonetheless.

LYRICS

Hey, what’s the point of this?
Oh, hey, what’s your favorite song?
Maybe we could hum along
Well, I think you’re smart
You sweet thing
Tell me your name
I’m dying here
Ah-ooh, got you where I want you, oh yeah
Ah-ooh, got you where I want you, oh, yeah
Hey, maybe just a smile
Oh, hey, did you know that I can dance?
Could we talk for a while?
Well, I think you’re smart
You sweet thing
Tell me your sign
I’m dying here 
Ah-ooh, got you where I want you, yeah
Ah-ooh, got you where I want you
Where I want you, I want you, yeah
Suffer, suffer
Me don’t get no rougher
Rub it up, baby girl, torture me like no other 
Suffer, suffer
Me don’t get no rougher
When me rock me, baby, put me pain on me, lover
Suffer, suffer
Me don’t get no rougher
Rub it up, baby girl, torture me like no other 
Suffer, suffer
Me don’t get no rougher
When me rock me, baby, put me pain on me, lover
I think you’re smart
You sweet thing
Tell me your name
I’m dying here
Ah-ooh (suffer, suffer, me don’t get no rougher)
(Rub it up, baby girl, torture me like no other)
Got you where I want you (suffer, suffer, me don’t get no rougher)
Yeah, I’ve got you where I want you (suffer, suffer, me don’t get no rougher)
Yeah, I’ve got you where I want you, want you, want you
Got you where I want you
I’ve got you where I want you
Got you where I want you
