Iíve Got Her Right Where She Wants Me ©2020 Robert George BMI

Well, I put the silencer on
Then waited in the alleyway
I felt a twinge of fear,
And the moonlight was as sheer
As my loverís negligee

All the whispers, planning and intrigue
Maybe, just maybe, she's out of my league

And Iíve got her right where she wants me
Cos a doubt in my heart still haunts me
Iím not one for lying and adultíry,
But sheís beautiful and sultry
Iíve got her right where she wants me

Yeah, I met her on the boardwalk
In an all-night bar n grill
Then she turned my bed to steam,
And she swallowed all my dreams
After she devoured my will

I can taste the starlight on her breasts
While misgivings tremble in my chest

Iíve got her right where she wants me
And a doubt in my heart still haunts me
Iím not one for scheming and adultíry,
Sheís mysterious and sultry
Iíve got her right where she wants me


She said her husband is a man of wealth and power
And were he to die it would all be ours


I do all that she desires
Though she says that Iím the boss
Love is crazy, lust is cruel,
O am I a fool
To not see a double-cross

Now I hear his footsteps near the alleyway
Then I feel a voice inside me say

Iíve got her right where she wants me
And a doubt in my heart still haunts me
Iím not one for murder and adultíry,
But sheís beautiful and sultry
Iíve got her right where she wants me

Iíve got her right where she wants me
Iíve got her right where she wants meÖ

Wow that is excellent couchgrouch. I saw the title and thought of Shakespeare 'Taming of the Shrew' and was curious if there was a tie in.

Now I'm thinking, holy man, season 1 of a TV mystry murder....can't wait for season 2!!

Thanks, Bill. There's some Double Indemnity and Body Heat in there, hopefully wrapped around a good hook. smile

Hi Robert,
This hook has been used more than once but so have almost all the hooks out there. You did what you needed to do by changing it up. I love your writing style, and the storytelling quality you bring with everything you write. I love this one too.


Have a goodun,

Thanks John. I'm not aware of this hook being in a major song. This is a rewrite of something from seceral years ago.
I overwrote the first version.

I don't remember hearing this hook before. I like it as a hook. I'm not sure that it makes logical sense in the context of this song. Unless I am misunderstanding the lyric (it wouldn't be the first time), she has him under her control, which would be "She has me right where I want her." "I have her right where she wants me" means that she wants to have him under control, but he has turned the tables and has her under his control. I don't get that from the song. It may not matter. People don't always pay such close attention.

Gavin, I think I have it right. I heard it in a movie or on tv and it was applied the way I applied it. I immediately knew it was a song hook.
