Katy Perry

Hot N Cold

Lyrics

playKaty, Do you take Alexander
playTo be a your lawfully wedded husband?

playI do.

playAlexander,
playDo you take Katy to be your lawfully wedded wife?

playYou change your mind
playLike a girl changes clothes
playYeah, you PMS like a bitch I would know
playAnd you over-think always speak cryptically
playI should know that you're no good for me

play'Cause you're hot then you're cold
playYou're "Yes" then you're "No"
playYou're in then you're out
playYou're up then you're down

playYou're wrong when it's right
playIt's black and it's white
playWe fight, we break up
playWe kiss, we make up

play(You) You don't really wanna stay, no
play(You) But you don't really wanna go

playYou're hot then you're cold
playYou're "Yes" then you're "No"
playYou're in then you're out
playYou're up then you're down

playWe used to be just like twins so in sync
playThe same energy now's a dead battery
playUsed to laugh 'bout nothing,
playnow you're plain boring
playI should know that you're not gonna change

play'Cause you're hot then you're cold
playYou're "Yes" then you're "No"
playYou're in then you're out
playYou're up then you're down

playYou're wrong when it's right
playIt's black and it's white
playWe fight, we break up
playWe kiss, we make up

play(You) You don't really wanna stay, no
play(You) But you don't really wanna go

playYou're hot then you're cold
playYou're "Yes" then you're "No"
playYou're in then you're out
playYou're up then you're down

playSomeone call the doctor
playGot a case of a love bipolar
playStuck on a roller coaster
playCan't get off this ride

playYou change your mind
playLike a girl changes clothes

play'Cause you're hot then you're cold
playYou're "Yes" then you're "No"
playYou're in then you're out
playYou're up then you're down
playYou're wrong when it's right
playIt's black and it's white
playWe fight, we break up
playWe kiss, we make up

playYou're hot then you're cold
playYou're "Yes" then you're "No"
playYou're in then you're out
playYou're up then you're down

playYou're wrong when it's right
playIt's black and it's white
playWe fight, we break up
playWe kiss, we make up

play(You) You don't really wanna stay, no
play(You) But you don't really wanna go

playYou're hot then you're cold
playYou're "Yes" then you're "No"
playYou're in then you're out
playYou're up then you're down, down

Play with the song, fill the gaps

meaningMeaning

The song is about a real guy - an ex-boyfriend who she could never get a read on. Said Perry, "One day this person would send me a text and I would be so thrilled about it because I had been waiting for some kind of sign - a smoke signal. He would be all interested and then I would just lose him, or one day he would want to see me and then one day he wouldn't. I didn't know what was wrong with him, if he was bipolar, or if he was wearing a mood ring. I took the theme and the song kind of spilled out of me.
