Perry at first wrote a lyric about Peter Panbut they later deemed it as "too young" since "we wanted it to have more edge, more sex. There was a final version that was based around the metaphor of " trying me on " comparing clothes to sex, in a similar manner to Madonna 's single " Dress You Up ".
It was rejected by the producers, as McKee explained, "Luke always makes us 'Benny Proof' everything. He says that if Benny doesn't get it, America won't get it.

I thought about watching Baz Luhrmann 's ' Romeo and Juliet ' and putting on a little mini disco ball light and just dreaming of Leo.
It is a very descriptive word; it packs a lot of emotion and imagery into three syllables I couldn't believe after all of our agonizing over 'youth' themes, that Teenage Dream (Vandalism V8 Dub) - Katy Perry - Teenage Dream (Remixes - Part One) had overlooked such an obvious one — the teenage condition.
McKee tried to approach Luke about her idea, but he was upset about the amount of time he had spent working in the chorus, so he banned them from changing Teenage Dream (Vandalism V8 Dub) - Katy Perry - Teenage Dream (Remixes - Part One) . They started working on the verses, where Perry had already prepared most of the imagery.

In a article in Slatecomposer Owen Pallett analyzed Romanza Andaluza - Burning River Brass - Romanza España, Spanish Masterworks For Brass song using music theory to explain its success.
He focused on two factors: the tonal interplay of the chords and melodyand Perry's use of syncopation in her vocals. That suspension is created "simply, by denying the listener any I chords," Pallett explains. At the same time, however, Perry begins singing the melody on that note, and returns to it frequently, even when it clashes with the dominant V chord as she sings "feel like I'm living a".
Her voice is the sun and the song is in orbit around it," he concludes. Weightlessness is achieved. Great work, songwriters! This contributes to the feeling of suspension that I mentioned above. As listeners, we're waiting for her to get to the point. Pallett than calls it "genius" that the chorus itself inverts the weighting of the verses, as the line "You make me feel like I'm living a teenage dream" goes from off beat to on and then back again, in a single line.
Further, Pallett writes, in the song's bridgePerry adds more complexity to the song—and makes it more memorable, in his opinion—by taking the simple step of singing the "let you put your hands on me in my skintight jeans" lyrics entirely on beat, including the reiteration of the song's title. The title of the song is rhythmically weighted two ways—it's like a flank attack. Two sides of the same face. You WILL remember the name of this song. Craig Marks of Billboard said that along with "California Gurls", the songs "are textbook summer singles whose ingenious pop hooks and zillion-dollar drum tracks are stamped with Perry's knack for a memorable line and frothy, gum-snapping persona.
While it's still as saccharine sweet as her previous hits, there's also a rather, well, mature quality to it despite the title. That said, we are now mentally preparing ourselves for its ubiquity.
