(If You're Wondering If I Want You To) I Want You To

  • The moon was shining on the lake at night
    The Slayer t-shirt fit the scene just right
    Smeared mascara, I looked into your eyes, I saw a light

    You told me stories about your chickadees
    They didn't like B-B guns or stupid archery
    You charmed the lifeguard, to let them use the pool all day for free

    Then the conversation stopped, and I looked down at my feet
    I was next to you and you were right there next to me
    And I said girl!
    If you're wondering if I want you to, (I want you to) I want you to
    So make a move, (Make a move) 'cause I ain't got all night

    The rest of the summer was the best we ever had
    We watched Titanic, and it didn't make us sad
    I took you to Best Buy, you took me home to meet your Mom and Dad

    Your Mom cooked meatloaf even though I don't eat meat
    I dug you so much, I took some for the team
    Your dad was silent, his eyes were fixed on what was on TV

    Then the conversation stopped, and I looked down at the ring
    Your folks were next to you, and you were right there next to me
    And I said girl!
    If you're wondering if I want you to, (I want you to) I want you to (I want you to)
    I swear it's true (I swear it's true) without you, my heart is blue
    Girl!
    If you're wondering if I want you to, (I want you to) I want you to
    So make a move, (Make a move) 'cause I ain't got all night

    So much pain may come our way
    There may come a day when we have nothing left to say
    When the conversation stops, and we're facing our defeat
    I'll be next to you and you'll be right there next to me

    Then I'll say girl!
    If you're wondering if I want you to, (I want you to) I want you to (I want you to)
    I swear it's true (I swear it's true) without you, my heart is blue
    Girl!
    If you're wondering if I want you to, (I want you to) I want you to
    So make a move, (Make a move) 'cause I ain't got all night

  • Scott from Farmington, NmActually, that's the message of the video. The song is pretty much just a down-to-earth, good ol' American love song. Still a really fantastic song and album.
  • Veve from Lorain, OhThis is a really great song. One of my Weezer favorites.
  • Lenny from Brookfield, OhI'm pretty sure that the message of this song is Bros Before Hoes.
