She's young and innocent, thinking about what her mother would say about her being with this stranger. She struggles to escape, but he doesn't let her go. She knows that he has her where no one would ever hear her scream. And, of course, it turns out she wants it � 'no' really does means 'yes' -- and, after he has forced himself on her, she's begging for more. Singing for it.

Do It Again (Gershwin and DeSylva, 1922):

Tell me, tell me, what did you do to me?
I just got a thrill that was new to me,
when your two lips were pressed to mine.

When you held me, I wasn't snuggling.
You should know I really was struggling.
I�ve only met you, and I shouldn't let you, but...

Oh, do it again.
I may say, "no, no, no, no, no,"
But do it again.

My lips just ache
to have you take
the kiss that's waiting for you.
You know if you do,
you won't regret it.
Come and get it.

Oh, no one is near.
I may cry, "oh, oh, oh, oh, oh,"
But no one will hear.

My mom will scold me
'cause she told me
that it's naughty, but then...
Oh, do it again!
Please do it again!

One CD, over and over, all month.
