Adam Lambert’s “Pick U Up” has been in my head for the past two weeks. I love it! It sounds a quite a bit like All-American Rejects, although it was co-written by Rivers Cuomo.

It’s a great song, and Lambert’s voice is amazing, especially toward the end with the big note at the end of the line, “I need someone to be my lover.”

This is the third of Lambert’s tracks on For Your Entertainment that I’ve made my song of the week. It’s the kind of album that I like more and more the more I listen to it. It also reminds me just how personality-free this season’s American Idol is. People might have complained last year that Adam was too over the top, but I think everyone would have to admit that he brought a lot of drama to the season. No one’s doing that this year.

Here are the lyrics:

Jumpin’ out the window
Movin’ on, groovin’ on
Which way will the wind blow?
We can’t be wrong, so say ’solong’
I’mma pick you up, I’mma pick you up
What’re you tryin’ to say to me?
Catch the train out to what you’re tryin’ to do
Are you gonna play with me?

All my life, I’ve been waiting
Pass my time, procrastinating now
It’s a trip on a flip
And flash right through the scene
Can’t you see what I mean?

Breaking through the boundaries
Rollin’ on, strollin’ on
They won’t ever find me
And after all, we’ll have a ball
I’mma pick you up, I’mma pick u up
We’re gonna see where we can go
This is how I live, this is what I give
And you’re the one I want to know

All my life, I’ve been waiting
Pass my time, procrastinating now
It’s a trip on a flip
And flash right through the scene
Can’t you see what I mean?

Tiny minded two-tone suckers
Same old faces make me shudder
Countless times I’ve screamed ‘oh brother!’
Where are you? I need someone to be my lover

All my life, I’ve been waiting
Pass my time, procrastinating now
It’s a trip on a flip
And flash right through the scene
Can’t you see what I mean?

It’s a trip on a flip
And flash right through the scene
Can’t you see what I mean?
