    get down...

    Hello teachers, I have been wondering for almost 10 years about these expressions in BSB's songs:

    1. get down and move it all around

    2. I want it that way. (what way?)

    THX in advance~~~

    Maybe you should continue wondering or use your imagination.

    "Get down and move it all around" refers to dancing. When a person "gets down" on the dance floor, it means that he is losing all inhibitions and moving with the music, putting his whole heart into it. "Move it all around" means gyrating various body parts while dancing.

    "I want it that way" means that the person speaking wants the other person to be themselves, that that's the type of personality he likes.


    You are my fire
    The one desire
    Believe when I say
    I want it that way

    But we are two worlds apart
    Can't reach to your heart
    When you say
    That I want it that way


    The singer is telling the girl that he loves her just the way she is, even though she protests that she is too different from him. "I want it that way" in this case means that he appreciates and loves everything about her, including their differences.

    I thought nobody would reply me and this thread sank already, and I never expected such a specific explanation~ Your answer is so enlightening that I cannot thank you more!
