  • The "That-that-that-that girl" part is sampled from the 1988 song "Sally (That Girl)" by Gucci Crew II. The "I wonder if I take you home" part comes from the 1985 song "I Wonder If I Take You Home," which was the first hit for Lisa Lisa and Cult Jam. >>

  • Lyrically, this song mimics the theme of "I Wonder If I Take You Home," which finds a girl (in this case, Fergie), trying to decide if the guy she likes will respect her and stay with her if she sleeps with him.
  • The beginning sample of the music was copied from a song used in a 1978 Bollywood (the Indian version of Hollywood) movie called Don. >>

  • Mahraj from Calcutta, IndiaPrelude of this SONG is copied from Hindi movie DON starring Amitabh Bacchan.
  • Sara from Traverse City, MiI love this song, the music video is stupid and it is annoying if you play it one times to many.
  • Caitlin from Upper Township, Njthe voice at the beginning that says " no, no, no, no! Don't phunk with my heart" is really annoying
  • Summer from Salvador, Brazil"Wonder if i take you home...would u still be in love baby"...i think every girl can relate to that line and how guys lose interest as soon as they get what they want!

  • Kim from Birmingham, EnglandThe Black Eyed Peas got their name from the lyrics of the REM song 'The Sidewinder Sleeps Tonight'. "A can of beans or blackeyed peas, some Nescafe and ice"
  • Kelly from New York, United Statesi love you people i want to be in your band
  • Joe from Chicago, Ari actually don't mind this song but it is overplayed and i like the video much better that's stupid how they changed it to "don't mess with my heart" though because if everybody knows that it's called "don't phunk with my heart" that's stupid oh well who cares i like never listen to the radio anyway lol anyway this is a pretty good song but the video is much more enjoyable
