Meaning

Perry kisses a girl after a night of clubbing (drinks are involved). She admits to liking it, but it isn't anything meaningful

In an interview with the Ventura County Star, Perry claimed this song is all about exploration and female bonding. She said: "There's just a magical beauty that women hold that can definitely slay men of all kinds. If Angelina Jolie, Natalie Portman or Gisele B√ľndchen walked into the room, everybody would watch."

Lyrics

This was never the way I planned,
Not my intention
I got so brave, drink in hand,
Lost my discretion
It's not what I'm used to,
Just wanna try you on
I'm curious for you, caught my attention

I kissed a girl and I liked it
The taste of her cherry chapstick
I kissed a girl just to try it
I hope my boyfriend don't mind it
It felt so wrong
it felt so right
Don't mean I'm in love tonight
I kissed a girl and I liked it (I liked it)

No, I don't even know your name,
It doesn't matter
You're my experimental game,
Just human nature
It's not what good girls do
Not how they should behave
My head gets so confused
Hard to obey

I kissed a girl and I liked it
The taste of her cherry chapstick
I kissed a girl just to try it
I hope my boyfriend don't mind it
It felt so wrong
it felt so right
Don't mean I'm in love tonight
I kissed a girl and I liked it (I liked it)

Us girls we are so magical,
Soft skin, red lips, so kissable.
Hard to resist, so touchable.
Too good to deny it.
Ain't no big deal, it's innocent.

I kissed a girl and I liked it
The taste of her cherry chapstick
I kissed a girl just to try it
I hope my boyfriend don't mind it
It felt so wrong
It felt so right
Don't mean I'm in love tonight
I kissed a girl and I liked it (I liked it)
Play with the song, fill the gaps
