GIRLS ALOUD | Here We Go

LYRICS:

(Take it away, boys)

Put your tongue in my ear
It's queer but kinda fun
We're the tomorrow generation
There's much to be done
So, madam fashion, darling
Step this way
The modern girl's delighted
To be risque

Here we go
We're gonna rock & roll 'til we stop
And then we'll drop
It's a squeeze
But if you just say please
Then that's fine
It'll be sublime
The bass line cuts deeper than
The sharpest stiletto
So one, two, three, now baby
Here we go (go, go)

Here we go, here we go
I'm your sugar-coated doll and
You're my Romeo
Here we go, here we go
Geek or unique, hell
Get on with the show
Here we go, here we go
I'm your sugar-coated doll
You're my hero
Here we go, here we go, here we go

Sugar, give me your face
And place it next to mine
'Cause darling, grease is the word
And boy, the word's divine
I don't do sex
But I do do second base
So I suggest you wipe that frown
From off your face

Here we go
We're gonna rock & roll 'til we stop (stop)
And then we'll drop
It's a squeeze
But if you just say please
Then that's fine (fine)
It'll be sublime
The bass line cuts deeper
Than the sharpest stiletto
So, one, two, three, now baby
Here we go (go, go)

Here we go, here we go
I'm your sugar-coated doll and
You're my Romeo
Here we go, here we go
Geek or unique, hell
Get on with the show
Here we go, here we go
I'm your sugar-coated doll
You're my hero
Here we go, here we go

Notes:
"Here We Go" was originally recorded by Miranda Cooper under the alias Moonbaby. It was later covered by Aqua singer Lene Nystrom Rasted in 2003 and it was covered again in 2004 by Girls Aloud.

"Here We Go" is also the basis for the theme song to the television cartoon series, Totally Spies.

REVIEWS:
x (...) The first thing to note is that the production is closer to the Moonbaby original, which was lovably surf-guitar heavy and quite cute with it. Lene's version brought out the killer rock song within, much the same way as its twin No Good Advice was all snarly punk sneer beneath its crunchy pop coating. The synth hook line that comes after the second chorus is a fantastic thrilling pop moment, but it's just not the same with the disappointingly judicious drum programming on this verison. There's something a little tame about the vocals too - splitting it between the girls means that it loses the singularity of the song's message - the narrator is an "I". In No Good Advice, it was them against you, against the world, and they delivered their girl-gang statement of intent with aplomb. Here, it's just needless division, and the group singing in the chorus doesn't seem exactly dead on the mark. Makes it a bit flat. Nicola's "take it away, boys" doesn't live up to my expectations, and the long vowels are all strangely affected and clipped: "here we gaww, here we gaww, get on with the shaww" it sounds like, really.
