Lyrics Print lyrics

What are you waiting for?

Nobody's gonna show you how

Why work for someone else

To do what you can do right now?

 

Got no boundaries and no limits

If there's excitement, put me in it

If it's against the law, arrest me

If you can handle it, undress me

 

Don't stop me now, don't need to catch my breath

I can go on and on and on

When the lights go down and there's no one left

I can go on and on and on

 

Give it to me, yeah

No one's gonna show me how

Give it to me, yeah

No one's gonna stop me now

 

They say that a good thing never lasts

And then it has to fall

Those are the the people that did not

Amount to much at all

 

Give me the bassline and I'll shake it

Give me a record and I'll break it

There's no beginning and no ending

Give me a chance to go and I'll take it

 

Don't stop me now, don't need to catch my breath

I can go on and on and on

When the lights go down and there's no one left

I can go on and on and on

 

Give it to me, yeah

No one's gonna show me how

Give it to me, yeah

No one's gonna stop me now

 

(Pharrell:)

Watch this

 

Get stupid, get stupid, get stupid, don't stop it (What?)

Get stupid, get stupid, get stupid, don't stop it (What?)

Get stupid, get stupid, get stupid, don't stop it (What?)

Get stupid, get stupid, get stupid, don't stop it

 

Get stupid, get stupid, get stupid, don't stop it

(To the left, to the right, to the left, to the right)

Get stupid, get stupid, get stupid, don't stop it

(To the left, to the right, to the left, to the right)

Get stupid, get stupid, get stupid, don't stop it

(To the left, left, right, right, left, left, right, right)

Get stupid stupid stupid stupid stupid stupid stupid...

(Left, left, right, right, left, left, right, right)

 

Don't stop me now, don't need to catch my breath

I can go on and on and on

When the lights go down and there's no one left

I can go on and on and on

 

Give it to me, yeah

No one's gonna show me how

Give it to me, yeah

No one's gonna stop me now

 

You're only here to win

Get what they say?

You're only here to win

Get what they do?

They'd do it too

If they were you

You done it all before

This ain't nothing new

 

You're only here to win

Get what they say?

You're only here to win

Get what they do?

They'd do it too

If they were you

You done it all before

This ain't nothing new

 

Give it to me, yeah

No one's gonna show me how

Give it to me, yeah

No one's gonna stop me now

Give it to me, yeah

No one's gonna show me how

Give it to me, yeah

No one's gonna stop me now

 

Give it to me

Single

Give It 2 Me, the single This is the second single from Hard Candy. It's a very catchy and uptempo track that was produced by The Neptunes and has a great anthemic vibe. Pharrell backs up Madonna with some vocals and together they do a hilarious breakdown in the middle of the song.

Even before it was promoted as a single, it gathered enough digital downloads during the week of the release of the album that it managed to debut at #8 in Canada, #57 in US and #73 in UK. Radio stations started playing it early June and a physical single was released on July 14th in the UK (11th in other European countries) and on August 5th in the US. Give It 2 Me got to #7 in the UK and became her 61st Top 10 single! Remixes of the single were made by Paul Oakenfold, Eddie Amador, Tong & Spoon, Jody Den Broeder, Sly & Robbie and Fedde le Grand.

Video

Give It 2 Me, the videoThe straightforward and goofy performance video was shot early April in London, directed by Tom Munro. It premiered online on May 31st. Madonna is seen recreating her Elle photoshoot by Munro in various costumes and is just having fun with Pharrell, who makes a guest appearance for some fooling around.

Tour

Give It 2 Me @ Sticky & Sweet TourAlthough "there's no beginning and no ending", this song brings an end to the Sticky & Sweet Tour. Madonna loses the breastplate, preparing to give it to us on a club version of her latest single. Parts of the lyrics flash on the screens in the style of a shooter video game. Gradually, more and more dancers join Madonna, until they're all jumping on stage. Pharrell is seen on the screens, and even makes a special guest appearance in NYC and Miami. Following her singalong trademark, Madonna extends the song and makes the crowd give it to her. At the end of the party, she disappears behind the reformed cubicle screens, which leave no doubt: 'Game Over'.
