What Are You Waiting For ? Lyrics - Gwen Stefani

Review The Song (34)



What an amazing time
What a family
How did the years go by
Now its only me

Tick-tock, tick-tock
Tick-tock, tick-tock
Tick-tock, tick-tock
Tick-tock, tick-tock
La, la, la, la, la, la, la

Like a cat in heat stuck in a moving car
A scary conversation, shut my eyes, can't find the brake
What if they say that you're a climber
Naturally, I'm worried if I do it alone
Who really cares, causes it's your life
You never know it could be great
Take a chance cause you might grow
Oh, oh, oh

What you waiting
What you waiting
What you waiting
What you waiting
What you waiting for

What you waiting
What you waiting
What you waiting
What you waiting
What you waiting for

Tick-tock, tick-tock
Tick-tock, tick-tock
Take a chance you stupid hoe

Like an echo pedal, you're repeating yourself
You know it all by heart
Why are you standing in one place
Born to blossom, bloom to perish
Your moment will run out
Cuz of your sex chromosome
I know it's so messed up how our society all thinks (for sure)
Life is short, you're capable (uh huh)
Oh... oh ohhh

Oh, oh, oh
uh,uh
uh,uh
Look at your watch now
You're still a super hot female
You got your million-dollar contract
And they're all waiting for your hot track

What you waiting
What you waiting
What you waiting
What you waiting
What you waiting for

What you waiting
What you waiting
What you waiting
What you waiting
What you waiting for

I can't wait to go back into Japan
Get me lots of brand new fans
Osaka, Tokyo
You Harajuku girls
Damn you've got some wicked style

Gooooooooooooooooo

Look at your watch now
You're still a super hot female
You got your million dollar contract
And they're all waiting for your hot track

What you waiting
What you waiting
What you waiting
What you waiting
What you waiting for

What you waiting
What you waiting
What you waiting
What you waiting
What you waiting for

What you waiting for
What you waiting for

(What you waiting for)
Take a chance you stupid hoe
Take a chance you stupid hoe

What you waiting for
What you waiting for

(What you waiting for)
Take a chance you stupid hoe
Take a chance you stupid hoe

actually, if you watch the extended version gwen says the song is about how her record producers wanted her to write a hit song and she had no inspiration. Look at the lines: "They're all waiting for your hot track". She didn't want to have children at this point, in fact, she didn't know about Kingston (her baby) until she was pregnant



gaijin girl. | Reviewer: Anonymous | 1/15/09

The song is about waiting to have children.

the tick-tock is supposed to be the sound of her biological lock ticking.

take a chance cause you might grow is ab out a baby growing in a whom and the mother growing with it.

your momnet will run out cuz of your sex cromosone is about how women arent always fertile, as you age so does your chance of conception.

if you go throguh the song with these things in mind it all really makes sense.



Time Runs Out!!! Take a chance you stupid hoe! | Reviewer: Jools | 11/23/07

Awesome song..Inspires me to look at my life and begin asking how much further can I go with the talent I have..Yeah it's scary realizing that years go by and only you can change your life...tick tock tick tock...there's a time when you need to come to your senses and move forward with your experiences and find success! Awakening to reality that ONLY YOU can make that choice...before time runs out! Thanks Gwen...I'm on it!!!



Nani matteru no? | Reviewer: Joe | 11/10/07

I came back from asia, was running around LA and Cali like mad, told myself to take a break, it felt good to relax, soon a week became a month, etc and I became a bum, and lost all inspiration. I totally know what she means. Life in Asia is so fast, so chaotic when you come here and things are so orderly and suburban...you really slow down. Revisited the song...didn't know the lyrics but I it happened to me too.

Btw, the harajuku girls are actually speakin good japanese...and say "what cha waiting for"=>"Nani matteru no" and things like that...

I do love the song. I like the part "Look at your watch now..." Funny don't we do that at dead nightclubs, instead of taking the lead?



what she's talking about | Reviewer: sylkyss | 10/16/07

i heard her say in an interview once that the song was for her baby. she couldn't have one, she was waiting for it to "be", and so kept repeating "what're wainting for?". of course, it doesn't make sense with the rest of the lyrics, but the chorus is double-sided.



Inspiration! | Reviewer: Anonymous | 9/13/07

Personally, I think the song's about how singers and songwriters are made to stick to deadlines and they get so pressured that they lose all inspiration. I think maybe what she's saying is 'stop doubting yourself and simply take a risk.'

what are you waiting for | Reviewer: Anonymous | 9/1/07

the song is ok...I'm not real impressed with her solo "career".She did better I think with her band.She kindof looks like a sell out.She's got talent I just don't like the road she's taken since she left her band.But the good news is I heard a rumor she's getting back togeather w/ the band to start another tour.



what are u waiting for | Reviewer: nina | 7/5/07

this song sissizziling HOT i mean hay ow many gwen stafani do oyu see using the coolist ammagenary music videos ever how abou that were is my million dollar contract



Selfish Song??? | Reviewer: Anonymous | 6/22/07

Apparently someonelse wrote this Song, it is about Gwen, and how she should go out on her own as a Solo Artist. Love the sound and flow. ONLY PROBLEM IS IT SOUNDS STUPID WITH HER SINGING ABOUT HERSELF. "YOUR A SUPER HOT FEMALE, YOU GOT YOUR MILLION DOLLAR CONTRACT" I mean, very selfish singing a song about herself like that. I love her so much, nut it is just awkward...
