When The Goes Down
Selena Gomez & The Scene
Written by Katy Perry
Josh Alexander
Billy Steinberg
Produced by Josh Alexander
Co-produced by Billy Steinberg

"That's More Like It" is a song written by Katy Perry, Josh Alexander, and Billy Steinberg. The song is included in Selena Gomez & the Scene's third studio album, When The Sun Goes Down. It was first registered on Katy Perry's ASCAP before being announced it would be a track in Selena Gomez's third album. Gomez has described the song as 'girl-empowering' and was glad Perry co-wrote it because she feels Perry represents girl-empowerment. Over a year after the album release, on August 25, 2012 a snippet Katy Perry's original demo leaked, followed by the leak of the full demo. It featured slightly different lyrics than Gomez's released version.[1]

Background

When giving a Track-By-Track interview with Billboard, Gomez commented on this song by saying it reminds her of a "cheeky-50's kind of theme" song. She continued by describing the song. "I feel like back then you always have assumed it's the woman who would cook for you and the guys will go to work, and the song kinds of flips that and says "You can massage my feet...you can take care of me and cook me dinner."

Lyrics

[Verse 1]:
When I wanted you, you did not reciprocate
When I needed you, you would always show up late
But things have changed, and I've got the upper hand
You can run and I've got you eating now of my hand

[Chorus]:
That's more like it, yeah
That's more like it
Make my dinner, bring it to me
That's more like it, That's more like it
Yeah, That's more like it
Yeah, That's more like it
I see where and when it happened
That's more like it!

[Verse 2]:
When my birthday came, you would not remember it
When I talked to you, you were never listening
But tables turn, and it's great to be on top
Got you great to appreciate the good that you've got

[Chorus]:
That's more like it, yeah
That's more like it
Make my dinner, bring it to me
That's more like it, That's more like it
Yeah, That's more like it
Yeah, That's more like it
I see where and when it happened
That's more like it!

[Bridge]:
I, I got clean
And I like daisies
Maybe better write this down
I love cashmere, and I want diamonds
Ready for my massage right now

[Chorus]:
That's more like it, yeah
That's more like it
Make my dinner, bring it to me
That's more like it, That's more like it
Yeah, That's more like it
Yeah, That's more like it
I see where and when it happened
That's more like it!
