All this time I thought I had my eye on you
But now I know the things you did not want me to
Who am I to say what you should say or do
If that was all you ever thought I meant to you

I know you think you’re bad but who’s the mac daddy (hey hey)
I know you think you’re bad but who’s the mac daddy (hey hey)
I know you think you’re bad but who’s the mac daddy (hey hey)
I know you think you’re bad but who’s the mac daddy (hey hey)
I know you think you’re bad but who’s the mac daddy (hey hey)
I know you think you’re bad but who’s the mac daddy (hey hey)
I know you think you’re bad but who’s the mac daddy (hey hey)
I know you think you’re bad but who’s your mac daddy (a-hey hey)
(a-hey hey) Who’s the mac daddy
(a-hey hey) Who’s the mac daddy
A-hey

All this time I thought I had my eye on you
But now I know the things you did not want me to
Who am I to tell you what to say or do
If that was all I ever thought I meant to you

I know you think you’re bad but who’s the mac daddy (hey hey)
I know you think you’re bad but who’s the mac daddy (hey hey)
I know you think you’re bad but who’s the mac daddy (a-hey hey)
I know you think you’re bad but who’s the mac daddy (a-hey hey)
I know you think you’re bad but who’s the mac daddy (a-hey hey)
I know you think you’re bad but who’s the mac daddy (hey hey)
I know you think you’re bad but who’s the mac daddy (a-hey hey)
I know you think you’re bad but who’s your mac daddy (hey-hey hey)
(a-hey hey) Who’s the mac daddy
(a-hey hey) Who’s the mac daddy
A-hey

All this time I thought I had my eye on you
But now I know the things you did not want me to
Who am I to say what you should say or do
If that was all you ever thought I meant to you
All this time you thought I had my eye on you
But now you know the things I did not want you to
Who am I to tell you what to say or do
And now I know exactly what I meant to you

Love it. Such a slinky, sexy song. And Axl's hold notes are incredible. Funky, want to dance and grind.

So GN'R might be taking parts of this song to put in other songs Mad

Here's what I wrote about this in another thread:

I HATE that they might be stripping great songs for parts to use in other songs if it means those great songs won't be released. It's like taking a brand new Ferrari and stripping it for parts to put in a Kia. I absolutely love Eye On You. (I also love Hard Skool so the Kia analogy wasn't very good). I am listening to it now and it is even better than I remembered. It just gets better and better. It is terrible as a GN'R song, yes yes yes, so different and so little guitars and so funky, but my god what a wondrously quirky thing it is. And that drum and bass groove makes me wanna do dirty things. GN'R is not known for sexy songs, but that one is. I know people have a problem with the MacDaddy vocal line - personally I think it is fine and I don't think it is meant to be taken too seriously. Don't get me wrong, the song should be taken seriously, but only as a non-serious, fun song. I have this growing suspicion that some fans have forgotten that many GN'R songs were just made for fun, the fun of playing, the fun of partying to. Not all their songs very these deep, epic, serious things. Axl also has the most impressive screams of GN'Rs back catalogue in it. So don't rip it apart!!
