“Dirrty” – Ed Sheeran (Christina Aguilera Cover) on BBC Live Lounge Feb 24, 2015 [YouTube Video]


Christina Aguilera “Dirrty” Lyrics:

Ring the alarm, and I’m trowin’ elbows
Ring the alarm, and I’m trowin’ elbows
Ring the alarm, and I’m trowin’ elbows
Where my dawgs at?

[Verse 1: Christina] Uh, let me loose
Oooh, I’m overdue
Give me some room, coming through
Paid my dues, I’m in the mood
Me and my girls come to shake the room
DJ spinning, show your hands
Let’s get dirrty, that’s my jam
I need that, uh to get me off
Sweating ’til my clothes come off
It’s explosive, speakers are thumping
Still jumping, 6 in the morning
Table dancing, glasses are crashing
No question, time for some action
Temperature’s up (Can you feel it), ’bout to erupt
Gonna get my girls, get your boys, gonna make some noise

[Hook: Christina] Gonna get rowdy
Gonna get a little unruly
Get it fired up in a hurry
Wanna get dirrty
It’s about time that I came to start the party
Sweat dripping over my body
Dancing, getting just a little naughty
Wanna get dirrty, it’s about time for my arrival

[Verse 2: Christina] Ah, heat is up
Ladies, fellas drop your cups
Bodies packed, front to back
Move your ass; I like that
Tight hip huggers (low for ho)
Shake a little something (on the floor)
I need that (uh) to get me off
Sweating ’til my clothes come off
Let’s get open, cause a commotion
Still going, 8 in the morning
There’s no stopping, we keep it popping
Hard rocking, everyone’s talking
Give all you got (give it to me), just hit the spot
Gonna get my girls, get your boys, gonna make some noise

[Hook] [Bridge: Christina] Here it comes it’s the one you been wait’n on
Get up get it rough, yup that’s what’s up
Giving just what you love to the maximum
Uh-oh (Uh-oh) Here we go (here we go)
What to do when the music starts to drop
That’s when we take it to the parking lot
And I bet you somebody’s gonna call the cops
Uh-oh (Uh-oh) Here we go (Here we go)

[Verse 3: Redman] Yo, hot damn, Doc a Jam like a Summer Show
I keep my car looking like a crash dummy drove
My gear look like the bank got my money froze
For dead presidents I pimp like Huddy roll
Doc the one that excite ya divas (ow!)
If the media shine, I’m shining with both of the sleeves up
Yo Christina (what), better hop in here
My block live and in color, like Rodman hair (yeah)
The club is packed, the bar is filled
I’m waiting for sister to act like Lauryn Hill
Frankly, it’s a rap, no bargain deals
I drive a four wheel ride with foreign wheels
Throw it up baby it’s Brick City, you heard of that
We blessed, and hung low, like Bernie Mac (Bernie Mac)
Dogs, let ’em out, women, let ’em in
It’s like I’m ODB, the way I’m freaking

[Hook x2]

Ed Sheeran covered Christina Aguilera’s “Dirrty,” complete with Redman rap in the Live Lounge. Watch above.

The abundantly talented Sheeran took an acoustic approach to one of Aguilera’s raunchier singles. Sheeran creates a groove by using his guitar as a percussive instrument, slapping the strings and then letting out powerful strummed chords. He takes some of the edge off of the original without making it sound compromised. His transition into Redman’s verse is seamless, and manages to avoid coming off as silly or forced. An all around solid performance.
