Thank goodness no one has looked too closely at the lyrics of Y.M.C.A. and In The Navy and Walk on the Wild Side.

"Louie Louie," written by Richard Berry in 1956, is one of the most recorded songs in history. The best-known, most notorious version was a hit in 1963 for the Kingsmen; the FBI spent two years investigating the lyrics before declaring they not only were not obscene but also were "unintelligible at any speed."

CHORUS:

Louie Louie, oh no
Me gotta go
Aye-yi-yi-yi, I said
Louie Louie, oh baby
Me gotta go

Fine little girl waits for me
Catch a ship across the sea
Sail that ship about, all alone
Never know if I make it home

CHORUS

Three nights and days I sail the sea
Think of girl, constantly
On that ship, I dream she's there
I smell the rose in her hair.

CHORUS

Okay, let's give it to 'em, right now!

GUITAR SOLO

See Jamaica, the moon above
It won't be long, me see me love
Take her in my arms again
Tell her I'll never leave again

CHORUS

Let's take it on outa here now
Let's go!!What the hell's so bad about that? :hmm:

It's clearly song code for 'I want to fellate my neighbour's grandfather after raping his daughters, and smother his naked wife in molasses, whilst riding a unicycle, clad only in a rubber jockstrap'.


Or something like that.


The same way 'My Boy Lollipop' is clearly about a young girl's initiation into the pleasures of oral sex.

Full title 'How i greedily sucked down my boyfriend's cock like a lollipop'

Obviously had to be shortened for the charts.

GUI GUI Oh, goody, me got it now.
GUI GUI Oh, goody, me got it now.

Fine little GUI, it displays a screen.
Blue and gray. Not black and green.
Me move the mouse, and click it then.
Me think me not touch keys again.

GUI GUI Oh, baby. Look at me go.
GUI GUI Oh, baby. Look at me go.

Three days and nights I use the mouse.
Me think me never see my house.
I eat and sleep and dream right there.
I don't shave or wash my hair.

OK, NOW. LET'S REALLY GIVE IT TO 'EM !
(dead silence)

Me see the screen. It now all black.
It don't look good. Me want it back.
I call support. They tell me 'Hold.'
Me wait on phone. This "getting old!".

GUI GUI Oh, come on. Me gotta go.
GUI GUI Oh, come on. Me GOTTA GO!

Nothing. They thought the lyrics were different than that. I don't know what thought they were hearing.

I can remember having an Emergency Assembly!!! in high school when people sang the "hey, hey, what!" lyrics to Mony, Mony at a school dance. Funny teachers.

Impossible.

No American would ever use "whilst".

No, but clearly I was making allowances for the lack of scholastic and linguistic achievement in the benighted ex-colonies.

(Oh, Cole Porter, what would you say....?)
