Lyrics

Full Version

Flip a switch,
Turn on the lightning,
Get it right
Show ‘em how it’s done

Free it up
No matter how you dress that song
Girl you know, you got a number one

Go with it, you got ‘em where you want ‘em
Drop the beat, they need to hear your sound
Play it up
It’s comin’ down to you right now

They wanna know, know, know
Your name, name, name
They want the girl, girl, girl
With game, game, game

And when they look, look, look
Your way, way, way
You're gonna make, (make), make, (make), make ‘em do a double take

Make ‘em do a double take
Yeah, yeah!

This could be an overnight sensation
You and me, tearin’ up the floor
Let it go, this party’s up to you right now

They wanna know, know, know
Your name, name, name
They want the girl, girl, girl
With game, game, game

And when they look, look, look
Your way, way, way
You're gonna make, make, make ‘em do a double take

Know, know, know
Your name, name, name
They want the girl, girl, girl
With game, game, game

And when they look, look, look
Your way, way, way
You're gonna make, (make), make, (make), make ‘em do a double take

Come on!

They wanna know, know, know
Your name, name, name
They want the girl, girl, girl
With game, game, game

And when they look, look, look
Your way, way, way
You're gonna make, (make), make, (make), make ‘em do a double take

Know, know, know
Your name, name, name
They want the girl, girl, girl
With game, game, game

And when they look, look, look
Your way, way, way
You're gonna make, (make), make, (make), make ‘em do a double take

You gotta make (make), make (make)
Make 'em do a double take!

Trivia

  • This is the first song in the series written by Ally. However, it is not the first song that Ally has written both on-screen and off-screen, due to the fact that she wrote "The Butterfly Song" at age 5.
  • This is the second song of the series.
  • Originally written by Ally, it was a slow song. Austin took it, however, and revamped it to more of a pop-song.
  • The song was also sampled in Shiny Money's hit song Trash Talka in the episode Tickets & Trashbags.

  • When Ally was singing the song in her Practice Room the lyrics were: "You Don't Know, Know, Know; My Name, Name, Name.... I'm Gonna Make, Make, Make You Do A Double Take." But when Austin performed it he changed the lyrics to: "They Wanna Know, Know, Know; Your Name, Name, Name... You're Gonna Make, Make, Make, Make, Make 'Em Do A Double Take." This might suggest that he's still talking about Ally.
