Shark Attack

Okay, I am kind of predicting what will get posted for this week’s Song Lyric Sunday. The theme is about songs that feature Lion, Tiger, Bear, Eagle, and Shark suggested by Paula of Light Motifs II. This week, my post is something close to my groupie heart (again).

Don’t Want You Back by Backstreet Boys

  • Recorded: October – December 1998
  • Released: May 18. 1999

The Backstreet Boys originally wanted this song to be the final single of the album. They went on TRL and wanted the fans to vote on what the final single would be. Most of the fans had originally voted for ‘Don’t Want You Back’ to be the next single, and most of the Backstreet Boys agreed with them. Then, Nick Carter had called TRL and voted for ‘The One’ to be the next single and because of his vote, it completely swayed the vote and ‘The One’ became the final single off the Millennium album.

Don’t, don’t want you back
(Hey yeah)

You hit me faster than a shark attack
You saw my picture
On the Backstreet’s Back, alright
And you were more than just a pretty face
But how you fooled me, I’m still amazed baby
But I should have known that I would be
Another victim of your sexuality
But now we’re done and over with
Don’t, don’t want you back

Don’t want you back
‘Cause you’re no good for me
I know
That’s all I can say
Don’t want you back
Forgive my honesty but you gotta go
I, I don’t want you back

You started going out with so-called friends
But I was blind and so I lost all common sense
But there were things that made me realize
Like all the hundred no, thousand lies

Don’t want you back
‘Cause you’re no good for me
I know
That’s all I can say
Don’t want you back
Forgive my honesty but you gotta go
I, I don’t want you back

Ah ah ah, you know I, I don’t want you back
(That’s right)Baby, don’t bother telling me your reasons why

Just let us sing this story ’bout you and I
Don’t want you back
That’s all I know
Don’t want you back (don’t want you back)
All I can say
Don’t want you back
You know you gotta go

Don’t want you back
‘Cause you’re no good for me
I know
That’s all I can say
Don’t want you back
Forgive my honesty but you gotta go
I, I don’t want you back (don’t want you back)
That’s all I know
That’s all I can say
Don’t want you back
Don’t want you back
You know you gotta go
I, I don’t want you back
