Steal My Girl - One Direction



The Experience: One Direction's single Steal My Girl reminds us of their hit That's What Makes You Beautiful, the lyrics telling their girl she's so beautiful everyone else wants her. 

Official Video: A crazy director and a crazy set make for a fun video. One Direction's performances create some smiles, while intending to create "life in the desert." The video ends up being about the boys in One Direction, with nothing for the Girl who was the center of the song. 

The meaning of Steal My Girl is how seriously the boyfriend has to commit to keep his 'queen'. He sees himself as fighting off a 'couple billion' men for her love. So that no one can 'take her heart away', he doesn't try to be cooler, richer, stronger, sexier - all the things commercials say a hot boy has to be. Instead he goes for constancy ('since we were sixteen'), and for sharing hearts, 'we want the same things, we dream the same dreams', and being known and accepted by her parents. 

Ask yourself: What makes a girl more committed: the outer things like money, muscles or the inner things like being constant and sharing dreams?


LYRICS:
She’s been my queen since we were sixteen
We want the same things, we dream the same dreams, alright, alright
I got it all cause she is the one
Her mom calls me 'love', her dad calls me 'son', alright, alright
I know, I know, I know for sure

Everybody wanna steal my girl
Everybody wanna take her heart away
Couple billion in the whole wide world
Find another one cause she belongs to me

Everybody wanna steal my girl
Everybody wanna take her heart away
Couple billion in the whole wide world
Find another one cause she belongs to me

Na na na na na na (oh yeah)
Na na na na na na (alright)
Na na na na na na

She belongs to me

Kisses that queen, her walk is so mean
And every jaw drops when she’s in those jeans, alright, alright
I don’t exist if I don’t have her
The sun doesn’t shine, the world doesn’t turn, alright, alright
But I know, I know, I know for sure

Everybody wanna steal my girl
Everybody wanna take her heart away
Couple billion in the whole wide world
Find another one cause she belongs to me

Everybody wanna steal my girl
Everybody wanna take her heart away
Couple billion in the whole wide world
Find another one cause she belongs to me

Na na na na na na (oh yeah)
Na na na na na na (alright)

She knows, she knows
That I never let her down before
She knows, she knows
That I’m never gonna let them take her love away from me now

Everybody wanna steal my girl
Everybody wanna take her heart away
Couple billion in the whole wide world
Find another one cause she belongs to me

Everybody wanna steal my girl
Everybody wanna take her heart away
Couple billion in the whole wide world
Find another one cause she belongs to me

Na na na na na na (alright)
