Lyrics You Still Don't Understand

Postby tomatochives » Sat Apr 18, 2015 5:00 pm

Just to list a few:

When I go to get my shoes shined, I gotta take their word

I bet your outfit makes a lot of noise in the dryer

I order all of my sandwiches with mayonnaise

He's so fat his belly blocks the view and he can't see his feet, so if someone shining his shoes wouldn't do a good work, or, let's say, paint it red instead :lol: , he wouldn't know :)

My guess would be it has to do with a phrase "loud outfit", but I have no idea how saying that someone is a tacky dresser (at least that's how I understand the phrase :unsure: ) is a pick-up line....

The dryer line got a lot of discussion back in the day. The theory is that he's trying to get her to take her clothes off.

It's the equivalent of "I bet your dress would look nice on the floor next to my bed." In other words, if it's on the floor, or in the dryer, well... you sure aren't wearing it! :S

Doesn't seem logical at all: one only puts clothes in a dryer after washing them, and who would think "I'm taking my clothes off to have a sexy time, so I might as well wash them"?

An old pick up line is you go up to a girl, lick your finger and touch her shirt and say "let's get you out of those wet clothes" so I imagine it's taking that a step further saying he's a gentleman and is gonna dry them after he gets her out of them

Does someone understand the "I order all of my sandwiches with mayonnaise" line?

It is just some weird stereotype that white people put mayo on everything.
