  • Lyrics
  • In this song, Gwen Stefani sings about being attracted to a guy who doesn't return her affection. His general indifference only makes her want him more, to the point that she feels subservient to him and is willing to use his old bathwater just so she can be near him.
  • No Doubt drummer Adrian Young does some beat-boxing in this song. In the video, he appears in drag. >>

  • Sophie Muller, who directed many No Doubt videos including their debut "Don't Speak," helmed the clip.
