Quotes[edit]

Cosmopolitan magazine (2009)[edit]

Interview in Cosmopolitan magazine (August 2009)
  • I gave myself until I turned 25 to make it. And if it didn't happen, I thought I'd just try to find a nice husband.
  • I was like, I don't know if I can hold that promise [to wait until marriage to have sex] because this guy at camp is really cute. Sex wasn't talked about in my home, but I was a very curious young girl.
    • On her upbringing as the daughter of born-again Christian pastors.
  • I'm not defined by where I came from. I never took part in the rules and hatred that sometimes go along with religion. But if my parents are happy with what they believe, then I'm happy to stay out of their way. We agree to disagree.
  • I had this lump in my throat, but I couldn't even cry. I thought, I shouldn't have gotten my hopes up. I was just sitting there in my car that I was two months behind on payments for, knowing I didn't have money for rent.
    • On not getting signed by Capitol Records, after months of negotiations, in 2007.
  • This is a really important time in my life. I can't just be the girl who sang 'I Kissed a Girl.' I have to leave a legacy.

Song lyrics[edit]

Baby do you dare to do this?
Cause I’m coming at you like a dark horse.

One of the Boys (2008)[edit]

  • I kissed a girl and I liked it,
    The taste of her cherry chap stick.
    I kissed a girl just to try it,
    I hope my boyfriend don't mind it.
    It felt so wrong,
    It felt so right,
    Don't mean I'm in love tonight.
    I kissed a girl and I liked it,
    I liked it.
  • Don't be a baby,
    Remember what you told me.
    "Shut up and put your money where your mouth is."
    That's what you get for waking up in Vegas.
    Get up and shake the glitter off your clothes, now.
    That's what you get for waking up in Vegas.
  • Cause when I'm with him,
    I am thinking of you,
    Thinking of you.
    What you would do if
    You were the one
    Who was spending the night?
    Oh I wish that I
    Was looking into your eyes.
  • You... change your mind
    Like a girl... changes clothes.
    Yeah you... PMS
    Like a bitch... I would know.
    And you ... over think
    Always speak ... cryptically.
    I should know ... that you're no good for me!

    'Cause you're hot then you're cold,
    You're yes then you're no.
    You're in then you're out,
    You're up then you're down.
    You're wrong when it's right,
    It's black and it's white.
    We fight, we break up,
    We kiss, we make up.

    • Hot n Cold, written by Katy Perry, Lukasz Gottwald, and Max Martin

Teenage Dream (2010)[edit]

  • Let's go all
    The way tonight.
    No regrets, just love.
    We can dance, until we die,
    You and I,
    We'll be young forever.

    You make me
    Feel like I'm living a
    Teenage dream.
    The way you turn me on,
    I can't sleep.
    Let's run away and
    Don't ever look back,
    Don't ever look back.

  • Last Friday night,
    Yeah we danced on tabletops.
    And we took too many shots,
    Think we kissed but I forgot.

    Last Friday night,
    Yeah we maxed our credit cards.
    And got kicked out of the bar,
    So we hit the boulevard.

    • Last Friday Night, written by Katy Perry, Lukasz Gottwald, Max Martin, and Bonnie McKee
  • California girls, we're unforgettable,
    Daisy Dukes, bikinis on top.
    Sun-kissed skin, so hot will melt your popsicle,
    Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh.
    California girls, we're undeniable,
    Fine, fresh, fierce, we got it on lock.
    West coast represent, now put your hands up,
    Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh.
  • 'Cause baby you're a firework,
    Come on, show 'em what you're worth.
    Make 'em go "Oh, Oh, Oh"
    As you shoot across the sky-y-y.

    Baby, you're a firework,
    Come on, let your colors burst.
    Make 'em go "Oh, Oh, Oh"
    You're gonna leave 'em falling down-own-own.

  • In another life, I would be your girl.
    We'd keep all our promises,
    Be us against the world.
    In another life, I would make you stay,
    So I don't have to say you were
    The one that got away,
    The one that got away.
  • All this money can't buy me a time machine, no
    Can't replace you with a million rings, no.
    I should have told you what you meant to me, whoa.
    Cause now I pay the price.
    • The One That Got Away
  • You’re so hypnotizing,
    Could you be the devil, could you be an angel?
    Your touch magnetizing,
    Feels like going floating, leaves my body glowing.
    They say be afraid,
    You’re not like the others, futuristic lovers.
    Different DNA, they don’t understand you.

Prism (2013)[edit]

  • You held me down, but I got up
    Already brushing off the dust.
    You hear my voice, you hear that sound,
    Like thunder, gonna shake the ground.
    You held me down, but I got up,
    Get ready cause I’ve had enough.
    I see it all, I see it now.

    I got the eye of the tiger, a fighter, dancing through the fire.
    Cause I am a champion and you’re gonna hear me ROAR.
    Louder, louder than a lion,
    Cause I am a champion and you’re gonna hear me ROAR.
    Oh oh oh oh oh oh,
    You’re gonna hear me roar.

    • Roar, written by Katy Perry, Lukasz Gottwald, Max Martin, Bonnie McKee, and Henry Walter
  • If you wanna dance, if you want it all,
    You know that I'm the girl that you should call.

    But when you're with me,
    I'll give you a taste.
    Make it like your birthday everyday.
    I know you like it sweet,
    So you can have your cake,
    Give you something good to celebrate.

    • Birthday, written by Katy Perry, Lukasz Gottwald, Max Martin, Bonnie McKee, and Henry Walter
  • So you wanna play with magic?
    Boy, you should know what you're falling for.
    Baby do you dare to do this?
    Cause I’m coming at you like a dark horse.
