"Contagious" is a song recorded by Avril Lavigne for her third album, The Best Damn Thing. Avril and her good friend and former guitarist, Evan Taubenfeld wrote this song together, originally intending for Evan to be the one to record it, but it sounded better when Avril recorded it. In the lyric 'damn, this guy can make me cry/smile', it is assumed that the word 'guy' would be replaced by 'chick' or 'girl' in an Evan version. Chantal Kreviazuk, a friend of Avril's , stated that she sent a song entitled 'Contagious' to Avril via mail, and that she had been denied song-writing credits. Avril has denied Chantal's story. This song was not a single, and did not ever have an official music video, but fans have made their own. The lyrics to "Contagious" are as follows:

When you're around I don't know what to do I do not think that I can wait To go over and to talk to you I do not know what I should say

And I walk out in silence That's when i start to realize What you bring to my life Damn this guy can make me cry

[Chorus] It's so contagious I cannot get it out of my mind It's so outrageous You make me feel so high

All the time

They all say that you're no good for me But I'm too close to turn around I'll show them they don't know anything I think I've got you figured out

So I walk out in silence That's when i start to realize What you bring to my life Damn this guy can make me smile

[Chorus]

I'll give you everything I'll treat you right If you just give me a chance I can prove I'm right

[Chorus X2]

All the time
