Army of Lovers
« on: June 23, 2007, 09:35:30 PM »
I'm just listening to an old Army of Lovers album Glory, Glamour and Gold, and I HEARD something I haven't heard before. In a song Mr Battyman, they say 'spanking' :? Now why haven't I heard that before??  :blink:

Anyhow, since the lyrics don't make any sense, could one of you native speakers say what they're actually saying,
or is it too much to ask?  :roll: :D  :whistle:

Here's the lyrics: http://lyricstrue.net/bandsongtext/Army_Of_Lovers/Mr_Battyman.html

May the tawse be with you.

Ohh hmmm ohh
Ohh ohh ohh hmmm
Ohh hmmm ohh
Ohh ohh ohh hmmm

CHORUS (I guess):
  Clap your hands and
  Stomp your feet
  Mr battyman
  Bang bang to the jungle beat
  Mr battyman
  Boogie up and boogie down
  Mr battyman
  Get down to the funky sound
  Mr battyman

He's boogaloo top rankin'
He cruise da caribbean
Da coconut he's spankin'
He spank dem hard and mean
He dress in fruitand flowers
Dem men call him obscene
Make friend in midnight hour
Jamaica queen supreme

Le ragamuffin style
Baby baby drive me wild

CHORUS

CHORUS

He paint da pinky trailer
He go to queenston town
He meet dem hunky sailor
Dem wind him round and round
Dem sailor take him cruisin'
He cruise da caribbean
Make friend in midnight hour
Jamaica queen supreme

Boom boom mi corazon
Baby baby all night long

CHORUS

Le ragamuffin style
Baby baby drive me wild

CHORUS

CHORUS

::sigh:: if only I could be that coconut.............  :( Um, uh......I mean........POOR coconut!  Yeah, that's it.  ;)
I used to be just cherries, sad and alone.
Then my prince came, to melt my heart of stone.
His words of love so healing, what else can I say?
Finally, my cherries, are FLAMBE'.

better queastion, what the heck has gotten into JT???????       :cry:  I WANNA SPANKING!!!!!!!  And I'm NOT getting one.  :cry: Maybe if I dye all his clothes neon pink...... Or change the locks................. or steal the car and leave him stranded at work......   :thinking: SOMETHING has to work!

Can't believe my natural bratty attitude hasn't earned me one lately.....

Oh, did I mention that we're moving in the next month to the MIDDLE of a hickory forest further out in the country? JT JUST decided this like in the past two days, found a house and everything...........

Gee, Can't let a spanking build until he gets me in the middle of a hickory forest!  8O

I'll bet that if the house doesn't have a woodshed, he is already drawing up the plans for one :roll: :roll: :whistle:
