Do you ever find your self singing along with a song, only to realize you just sang something that made absolutely no sense whatsoever?
Do you stop and ask yourself why on earth someone would write that as a lyric? Were they just really stuck on that one part and decide, “Ah fuck it, just put some random sentences in there” or something?
And I ain’t gonn’ give it up, steady tryna pick it up like the car
I’ma hit it, I’ma hit it and flex and do it until tomorr’ yeah.
Just Dance – Lady GaGa
The author of the above quote appears to be self-conflicted.
(I’m not sure if these are the correct lyrics, but they sound pretty close either way. I can just imagine in about 500 years some future philanthropist will discover quotes such as these and treat them as the prophecies of some ancient scholars. Perhaps he will be the next Nostradamus. Maybe in Shakespeare’s time, the language of his plays were considered uncouth slang? )
In the first line, he claims he “ain’t gonna give it up” and yet in the next line he alludes to what I assume to be a fairly lengthy sex session. I mean, who’s going to bother saying until tomorrow if it’s only 20 minutes until the next day? If he’s not talking about giving up sex what the flying hell IS he talking about? Everyone knows, “give it up” is slang for accepting a booty call.
Steady trying to pick it up like a car?
Nope, it makes absolutely no more sense in bland english.
Steady trying to pick what up? He picks up cars? Is he fucking Superman? Why would you want to pick up a car in the first place? (Besides the obvious.)
Taken with the first half of that line, I think the lyric may make even less sense. It definitely makes me more confused about the second lyric though, which by the by, sounds more like a threat than a come on… At the very least it sounds painful…
