Gwen Stefani - Wind It Up

High on a hill was a lonely goatherd
Lay-ee-odl-lay-ee-odl-lay-hee-hoo
Yodel back with the girl and goatherd
Lay-ee-odl-lay-ee-odl-oo


Wind it up
Wind it up, uh, uh,
Uh, uh, uh, Wind it up, uh, uh, uh, uh
Uh, uh, Yodellay, yodallay, yodel-low

(Yeah)
This is the key that makes us wind up
When the beat comes on, the girls all line up
And the boys all look, but know, they can't touch
But the girls want to know why boys like us so much

They like the way we dance, they like the way we work
They like that way that L.A.M.B. is going 'cross my shirt
They like the way my pants, it compliments my shape (She's crazy, right?)
They like the way we react every time we dance

Every time the bass bangs, realize it calls your name
Let the beat wind you up, and don't stop till your time is up
Get in line now

Uh, uh, uh, Wind it up, uh, uh, uh, uh
Uh, uh, Wind it up, uh, uh, uh, (Come on) uh
Uh, uh, Wind it up, uh, uh, uh, uh
Uh, uh, Yodellay, yodallay, yodel-low

You've got to let the beat get under your skin
You've got to open up, and let it all in
But see, once it gets in, the popin' begins
And then you find out, why all the boys stare

See, they're trying to bite our style
Trying to study our approach
They like the way we do it, so original
I guess that they are slow, so they should leave the room
This beat is for the clubs, and cars that go

Every time the bass bangs, realize it calls your name
Let the beat wind you up, and don't stop till your time is up
Get in line now

Uh, uh, uh, wind it up, uh, uh, uh, uh
(Y'all ready)

Uh, uh, Wind it up, uh, uh, uh, uh
Uh, uh, Wind it up, uh, uh, uh, uh
Uh, uh, Wind it up, Yodellay, yodallay, yodel-low

Uh uh huh, it's your moment
Uh huh, come on girl, you know you own it
Uh huh, you know your key is still tick-tockin'
Hell yeah, and you know they're watchin'

Get it girl, get it, get it girl
Get it girl, get it, get it girl
To the front, to the side,
To the back, but don't let him ride

Keep goin' girl, it's your night
Don't let him steal your light
I know he thinks you're fine and stuff
But does he know how to wind you up?
(Come on)

Uh, uh, uh, Wind it up, uh, uh, uh, uh
Uh, uh, Wind it up, uh, uh, uh, uh
Uh, uh, Wind it up, uh, uh, uh, uh
Uh, uh, Wind it up, Yodellay, yodellay, yodellay, hey

"Wind It Up" is a song written by Gwen Stefani and Pharrell originally for inclusion on Stefani's Harajuku Lovers Tour 2005. Because of favorable reception, the song was later recorded for her second solo album The Sweet Escape (2006). The track includes an interpolation of The Sound of Music song "The Lonely Goatherd". "Wind It Up" was panned by music critics, who criticized the song's use of yodeling and found the track to be over the top. The track was released as the album's lead single in late 2006 (see 2006 in music) and reached the top twenty in most music markets.
