get in line & settle down

Oh my gosh, I absolutely love this song!  "Settle Down" is the first single from No Doubt's "Push and Shove", due in stores worldwide on September 25, 2012!  The Jamaican flavored beat is awesome!  Everything from the lyrics, to the verses, the melody, the beat, the amazing chorus, to the 'rough and tough' bridge is brilliant.  Long time collaborator Sophie Mueller directed the video, and I just love her use of color!  Check out the video (lyrics below):



Get get get in line, and settle down
Get in line, and settle down

What's your twenty? (Do you copy?)

Where's your brain? (Do you copy?)
Checking in to check you out
Concerned about your whereabouts
Copy that, you're acting strange
So tell me what is going on
So heavy I bet

I'm fine (and nothing's gonna knock this girl down)

I'm hella positive for real
I'm all good
No I'm fine (and nothing's gonna knock this girl down)
It's kind of complicated that's for sure

But you can see it my eyes, you can read on my lips

I'm trying to get a hold on this
And I really mean it this time
And you know it's such a trip
Don't get me started
I'm trying to get a hold on this

Get get get in line, and settle down

Get in line, and settle down

No big deal (I can handle it)

It'll bounce off me (I can handle it)
Been around the block before
Doesn't matter anymore
Here we go again (Are you kidding me?)
Are you insane? (Are you kidding me?)
Underneath the avalanche
So heavy again

I'm fine (and nothing's gonna knock this girl down)

I'm hella positive for real
I'm all good
No I'm fine (and nothing's gonna knock this girl down)
It's kind of complicated that's for sure

But you can see it my eyes, you can read on my lips

I'm trying to get a hold on this
And I really mean it this time
And you know it's such a trip
Don't get me started
I'm trying to get a hold on this

Get get get in line, and settle down

Get in line, and settle down

I'm a rough and tough

I'm a rough and tough
And nothing's gonna knock this girl down
I'm a rough and tough
I'm a rough and tough
And nothing's gonna knock this girl down
I'm a rough and tough
I'm a rough and tough
And nothing's gonna knock this girl down
I'm a rough and tough
I'm a rough and tough

But you can see it my eyes, you can read on my lips

I'm trying to get a hold on this
And I really mean it this time
And you know it's such a trip
Don't get me started
I'm trying to get a hold on this

Gotta get a hold on this

Trying to get a hold on this
Don't get me started
Gotta get a hold on this

Get get get in line, and settle down

Get in line, and settle down

Get get get in line, and settle down

Get in line, and settle down
