Childhood ruined!

In my defense, my mind was very innocent so I heard what I heard. Now I wonder what our parents used to think as we sang these songs out loud in the hallway. Or when it came on and we got all excited talking about, ‘that’s my song!’ Oooh, chile!

No Diggity – Blackstreet

This song is about a girl who spreads them legs for everyone. (stop it, I know you just put someone’s name there) So bag it up- wear a condom…

“By no means average
She’s on when she’s got to have it
Baby, you’re a perfect ten, I wanna get in
Can I get down, so I can win
I like the way you work it
No diggity, I got to bag it up, bag it up”

Barbie Girl- Aqua

This had me a little upset because then all the times I sang this picturing myself as a barbie doll all I was saying was, come strip me and have your way. I was just a child. weeps

“I’m a blond bimbo girl in a fantasy world
Dress me up, make it tight, I’m your dolly
You’re my doll, rock’n’roll, feel the glamour in pink
Kiss me here, touch me there, hanky panky
You can touch
You can play
If you say “I’m always yours”

Poker face – Lady Gaga

Listen, Lady Gaga couldn’t have sang about sex. No way! Yep, right here in this song she did. In our straight faces.

Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh-oh-e-oh-oh-oh
I’ll get him hot, show him what I’ve got
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh-oh-e-oh-oh-oh,
I’ll get him hot, show him what I’ve got”

I’m so excited – The Pointer Sisters

Oh they were really excited. I hope they got it good! rolls eyes

“I want to love you, feel you
Wrap myself around you
I want to squeeze you, please you
I just can’t get enough
And if you move real slow, I’ll let it go”

Genie in a Bottle – Christina Aguilera

Took the literal sense out this song, that time babe is thinking strokes. Another childhood vibe in the trash.

“I feel like I’ve been locked up tight
For a century of lonely nights
Waiting for someone to release me
You’re lickin’ your lips
And blowing kisses my way
But that don’t mean I’m gonna give it away
Baby, baby, baby (Baby baby baby)”

Leaving – Jesse McCartney

I know millions of us thought this song right here was about leaving a guy who treats you bad for a better guy. You got played!!

“Hey baby girl, I’ve been watching you all day (all day, all day, all day)
Man that thing you got behind you is amazing (amazing, amazing, amazing)
You make me want to take you out
And let it rain (let it rain, let it rain, let it rain)
I know you got a man but this is what you should say”

Gasolina – Daddy Yankee

Can we just agree that there was a language barrier over here. Yeah, great!

Liar, you know more than anyone that you are crazy
(Mentirosa, tú sabes mas que nadie que tú eres loca )
Now dance and take off your clothes (yeah)
(Ahora baila y quítate la ropa) (yeah)
From Puerto Rico to Cuba
(De Puerto Rico a Cuba )
Cuba to yuma, all women
(Cuba hasta la yuma, todas las mujeres )
Don’t stop get it get it
Don’t stop get it get it
Dirty, I have that gas you like
(Sucia, yo tengo esa gasolina que te gusta)
Forget your husband and enjoy
(Olvídate de tu marido y disfruta )”

Work from home – Fifth Harmony

Ok, you are not alone. Somehow this went over my head too. So naive!

“I ain’t worried ’bout nothin’
I ain’t wearin’ na nada
I’m sittin’ pretty, impatient, but I know you gotta
Put in them hours, I’mma make it hotter
I’m sending pic after picture, I’mma get you fired”

Shut up & drive – Rihanna

If you thought this song was about a night out at the club and being ready to leave for the next, don’t raise your hand. Thank you!!

“Get you where you wanna go, if you know what I mean
Got a ride that’s smoother than a limousine
Can you handle the curves, can you run all the lights
If you can, baby boy, then we can go all night”

Fergalicious – Fergie

Oral sex, the whole song! All of it…
Whatever you thought she was singing about, out the window mate!

“Baby, baby, baby
If you really want me
Honey, get some patience
Maybe then you’ll get a taste
I’ll be tasty, tasty
I’ll be laced with lacy
It’s so tasty, tasty
It’ll make you crazy”

Kiss from a Rose – Seal

When I listened to this song I got pure love song vibes. That time mans is talking about a girl losing her virginity. Laugh with me!!!

“There is so much a man can tell you, so much he can say
You remain my power, my pleasure, my pain
Baby, to me, you’re like a growing addiction that I can’t deny
Won’t you tell me, is that healthy, baby?”

The Macarena – Los Del Rio

Macarena wanted to get it from two of her boyfriend’s friends, at the same damn time. Girl was wild wild! Gad dammit…

Hey macarena
But don’t you worry about my boyfriend
He’s a boy who’s name is Victorino
I don’t want him
Couldn’t stand him
He was no good so I
Now come on, what was I supposed to do?
He was out of town and his two friends were so fine
Give your body joy Macarena
(Dale a tu cuerpo alegría Macarena )
That your body is to give you good thing joy
(Que tu cuerpo es pa’ darle alegría cosa buena)
Give your body joy, Macarena
(Dale a tu cuerpo alegría, Macarena)
Hey macarena
