"Girl Gone Wild" is the second single off Madonna's twelfth studio album MDNA.

Background

This was only the second single released by Madonna after she signed a lucrative record deal with Universal Music Group's Interscope, but the singer found herself straight away stirring up beef with one of her new label mates: Rapper 50 Cent had been recording a single with the same title and he took to twitter to publicly voice his anger at what he saw as a snub from his label. There was also another hullabaloo stirred up by the song title. Joe Francis, who owns the libidinous video franchise Girls Gone Wild, threatened to sue Madonna if she sang the song during her performance at the Super Bowl XLVI halftime show. The NFL later announced that the song would not be performed but it was mission accomplished for Francis, having succeeded in creating some publicity for his videos. The song was co-written with the young Vancouver-based songwriter Jenson Vaughan, who has worked with UK producer Ian Carey, on collaborations with such artists as Timbaland, Kelly Rowland and Snoop Dogg. Both Vaughan and the Benassi cousins are signed with Patrick Moxey's dance music label Ultra Music. Speaking with Billboard magazine, Moxey traced the song's beginning back to early 2011, when he suggested to Benny Benassi that his aggressive style might, "work well with some of the major American superstar artists," so he requested additional tracks from the Italian producer and his cousin.

Composition

The song follows a sequence of G♯m–C♯m–E during the opening prayer verse and Am–Em–G–F for the rest as its chord progression. "Girl Gone Wild" is as a mid-tempo party track, drawing influence from four-on-the-floor.

Live Performances

The song was perfomed as the opening song at her MDNA Tour in 2012.

Lyrics

Oh, my God, I am heartily sorry for having offended Thee
And I detest all my sins
Because I dread the loss of heaven, and the pains of hell.
But most of all because I love Thee,
And I want so badly to be good.

It's so hypnotic
The way he pulls on me
It's like the force of gravity
Right up under my feet
It's so erotic
This feeling can't be beat
It's coursing through my whole body
Feel the heat

I got that burnin' hot desi-i-i-re
And no one can put out my fi-i-i-re
It's coming right down through the wi-i-i-re
Here it comes
When I hear them 808 drums
It's got me singing

Hey, ey, ey, ey
Like a girl gone wild
A good girl gone wild
I'm like, hey, ey, ey, ey
Like a girl gone wild
A good girl gone wild

Girls they just wanna have some fun
Get fired up like smokin' gun
On the floor til the daylight comes
Girls they just wanna have some fun

A girl gone wild
A good girl gone wild
I'm like a girl gone wild
A good girl gone wild

The room is spinning
It must be the tanqueray
I'm about to go astray
My inhibition's gone away
I feel like sinning
You got me in the zone
DJ play my favorite song
Turn me on

I got that burnin' hot desi-i-i-re
And no one can put out my fi-i-i-re
It's coming right down through the wi-i-i-re
Here it comes
When I hear them 808 drums
It's got me singing

Hey, ey, ey, ey
Like a girl gone wild
A good girl gone wild
I'm like, hey, ey, ey, ey
Like a girl gone wild
A good girl gone wild

Girls they just wanna have some fun
Get fired up like smokin' gun
On the floor til the daylight comes
Girls they just wanna have some fun

I know, I know, I know
I shouldn't act this way
I know, I know, I know
Good girls don't misbehave
Misbehave
But I'm a bad girl, anyway
Forgive me

Hey, ey, ey, ey
Like a girl gone wild
A good girl gone wild
I'm like, hey, ey, ey, ey
Like a girl gone wild
A good girl gone wild

Girls they just wanna have some fun
Get fired up like smokin' gun
On the floor til the daylight comes
Girls they just wanna have some fun

A girl gone wild
A good girl gone wild
I'm like a girl gone wild
A good girl gone wild
