About Say Somethin'

"Say Somethin'" is a song by American singer and songwriter Mariah Carey. It was written by Carey, Snoop Dogg, Chad Hugo, and Pharrell Williams, and produced by The Neptunes as the seventh overall single from Carey's tenth studio album, The Emancipation of Mimi (2005). The song is one of few from Carey's catalog in which she does not share production credits. "Say Somethin'" features Dogg as a guest artist, and is influenced by R&B and hip-hop music genres. Lyrically, the song is a dialogue in between and male and female, that discuss sexual themes and acts of which they plan to engage in a restroom. The song received generally mixed reviews from music critics, many of which both praised and dismissed its production and vocals. Some reviewers felt Carey's performance was too typical for a singer of her stature, while others felt the song's complex instrumentation distracted from the artists. As the fifth international single from the album, the song performed weakly on the singles charts on which it appeared, peaking at number seventy-nine on the Billboard Hot 100. Internationally, "Say Somethin'" failed to achieve strong chart success, peaking outside the top-twenty in Australia and top-forty in Europe.

Yeah, say somethin' (ooh)
Say somethin', say somethin', yeah, damn (ohh)
Say somethin', say somethin', damn (oooh, ohh, yeah)

I'm over here, looking at you
You are over there, watching me too
Both painting pictures of, of how we'll kiss and hug
So what we gon' do?
(So what you gon' do, so what you gon' do?)
Tell me why we're standing here
The moment's fresh and so sincere
You've got my mind blown and baby, I'm ready to go (hey!)

But, uh
If it's worth your while, say somethin', say somethin'
If it's worth your while, say somethin' good to me
Hey, hey, hey, hey, hey
If it's worth your while, do somethin' good to me

Let's make it
Hot as you can stand it, somethin' like volcanic
You and me seems organic just like the stars and planets
Yeah, we are, so what you gon' do?
(So what you gon' do, what you gon' do?)
Tell me why we're still in here
There's nothing for us to fear
I could tell with my eyes closed, now, baby, I'm ready to go
(Hey)

But, uh
If it's worth your while, say somethin', say somethin'
If it's worth your while, say somethin' good to me
Hey, hey, hey, hey, hey
If it's worth your while, do somethin' good to me
If it's worth your while, say somethin', say somethin'
If it's worth your while, say somethin' good to me, baby
Hey, hey, hey, hey, hey
If it's worth your while, do somethin' good to me

Every time I fall though, want me to speak on the word or two
It's the D-O, double-G, and I do it so lover-ly
Digging this track by the Neptune's
Baby girl follow me to the restroom
Now get buck wild, shh, don't make a sound
I'll take you, lay you down
Make your body go 'round and 'round
Do you want me to, don't say you won't, I know you do
Most girls play shy, it won't hurt until you give it a try
I know you like my smile
Dig my style, dig the bow wow

But, uh
If it's worth your while, say somethin', say somethin'
If it's worth your while, say somethin' good to me
Hey, hey, hey, hey, hey
If it's worth your while, do somethin' good to me
If it's worth your while, say somethin', say somethin'
If it's worth your while, say somethin' good to me
Hey, hey, hey, hey, hey
If it's worth your while, do somethin' good to me
