About Don't Let Me Be the Last to Know

"Don't Let Me Be the Last to Know" is a song recorded by American singer Britney Spears for her second studio album, Oops!... I Did It Again (2000). It was released on January 15, 2001, by Jive Records as the fourth and final single from the album. After meeting with producer Robert John "Mutt" Lange in Switzerland, Spears recorded several songs for the album, including "Don't Let Me Be the Last to Know", which she considered one of her favorites on the album. Additional lyrics were written by guitar player Keith Scott and country pop singer Shania Twain. The teen pop ballad speaks of a woman wanting to hear her boyfriend say that he loves her, and is sonically similar to David Bowie and Iggy Pop's song "China Girl" (1983). "Don't Let Me Be the Last to Know" received mostly positive reviews from music critics, who considered it a good break from the album's genre and praised Spears' vocals, comparing them to those of Twain and Stevie Wonder. The song attained moderate commercial success, reaching number one in Romania, and peaking inside the top ten in Austria, Europe and Switzerland, while reaching top twenty positions in many European countries. "Don't Let Me Be the Last to Know" was only released for mainstream radio in the United States; therefore, it failed to chart on any major music chart in the country.

My friends say you're so into me 
And that you need me desperately 
They say you say we're so complete 

But I need to hear it straight from you 
If you want me to believe it's true 
I've been waiting for so long it hurts 
I want to hear you say the words, please 

Don't, don't let me be the last to know 
Don't hold back, just let it go 
I need to hear you say 
You need me all the way 
Oh, if you love me so 
Don't let me be the last to know 

Ooh yeah, baby

Your body language says so much 
Yeah, I feel it in the way you touch 
But 'til you say the words it's not enough 
Come on and tell me you're in love, please 

Don't, don't let me be the last to know 
Don't hold back, just let it go 
I need to hear you say 
You need me all the way 
Oh, if you love me so 
Don't let me be the last to know 

Come on baby, come on darling, ooh yeah 
Come on, let me be the one 
Come on now, oh yeah 

I need to hear you say (I need to hear you say)
You love me all the way (you love me all the way)
And I don't want to wait another day 
I want to feel the way you feel 
Oh, come on 

Don't, (don't) don't let me be the last to know (just let me be the one) 
Don't (don't) hold back (hold back), just let it go (just let it go)
I need to hear you say (I need to hear you say)
You need me all the way (you need me all the way)
So, baby, if you love me 
Don't let me be the last to know
