Contagious is a song recorded by Avril Lavigne for her third album, The Best Damn Thing.

BackgroundEdit

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 ultimately it went to Lavigne.

ControversyEdit

Chantal Kreviazuk, a friend of Avril's, stated that she sent a song entitled 'Contagious' to Avril via e-mail and that she had been denied song-writing credits. Avril has denied Chantal's story.

Kreviazuk would later retract this statement clarifying that the "Contagious" on The Best Damn Thing was a different song from the "Contagious" she sent Avril.

LyricsEdit

When you're out 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

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 got you figured out so

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 smile

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

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

It's so contagious (Hey, hey!)
I cannot get it out of my mind (Out of my mind!)
It's so outrageous
You make me feel so high

It's so contagious (Hey, hey!)
I cannot get it out of my mind (Out of my mind!)
It's so outrageous
You make me feel so high all the time
