"Timber" is a song by Pitbull and Ke$ha. The song was released on October 7, 2013, as the lead single from Pitbull's extended play Meltdown.


BackgroundEdit

In an interview in December 2013, Pitbull said that Rihanna was originally meant to be the featured artist on "Timber", but she had already been asked to be the featured artist on Shakira's "Can't Remember to Forget You" and did not have time to record "Timber".

ControversyEdit

On June 25, 2014, it was reported that songwriters Lee Oskar, Keri Oskar, and Greg Errico had filed a copyright infringement lawsuit against the makers of "Timber", which features a harmonica melody that Oskar claims is "identical" to the melody used in his 1978 song "San Francisco Bay". The songwriters are seeking $3 million USD in damages.[25] The lawsuit alleges that while Sony Music may have obtained permission to use the sample, which is credited in the album notes for Meltdown, from a license holder, the label failed to obtain permission from the songwriters themselves.[25]

Music videoEdit

Kesha filmed her scenes on November 5, 2013 while Pitbull filmed his scenes one week later on November 12, 2013.

LyricsEdit

It's goin' down I'm yellin' timber
You better move you better dance
Let's make a night you won't remember
I'll be the one you won't forget

The bigger they are the harder they fall
These big-iddy boys are dig-gidy dogs
Have 'em like Miley Cyrus clothes off
Twerking in their bras and thongs timber

Face down booty up timber
That's the way we like to what timber
I'm slicker than an oil spill
She say she won't but I bet she will timber

Swing your partner round and round
End of the night it's goin' down
One more shot another round
End of the night it's goin' down

Swing your partner round and round
End of the night it's goin' down
One more shot another round
End of the night it's goin' down

It's goin' down I'm yellin' timber
You better move you better dance
Let's make a night you won't remember
I'll be the one you won't forget

It's goin' down I'm yellin' timber
You better move you better dance
Let's make a night you won't remember
I'll be the one you won't forget
You won't forget you won't forget

Look up in the sky it's a bird it's a plane
Nah it's just me ain't a damn thing changed
Live in hotels swing on plane
Blessed to say money ain't a thing
Club jumping like Lebron now voli
Order me another round homie
We about to clown why
'Cause it's about to go down

Swing your partner round and round
End of the night it's goin' down
One more shot another round
End of the night it's goin' down

Swing your partner round and round
End of the night it's goin' down
One more shot another round
End of the night it's goin' down

It's goin' down I'm yellin' timber
You better move you better dance
Let's make a night you won't remember
I'll be the one you won't forget
It's goin' down (it's goin' down)
I'm yellin' timber
You better move
You better dance (you better dance)

Let's make a night you won't remember
I'll be the one you won't forget
You won't forget
