Being the music lover that I am, I’m always listening to something or I have some song in my head. Yesterday on my way from work, I’m listening to my trusty iPod and Jagged Edges “Let’s get Married” (the original slow version) comes on. Immediately I go “awww” and start singing along. Have you noticed that sometimes you know all the lyrics to a song but never actually stopped and thought about what it meant. Here’s what struck me with this song.
Meet me at the altar in your white dress
We ain’t gettin no younger we might as well do it
Been feelin’ you all the while girl I must confess
Girl let’s just get married I just want to get married
“We ain’t getting no younger girl, we might as well do it”. *Flava flav voice* Wowwwww. You know what you might as well do? I “might as well” go to the mall and buy shoes because I really want a new pair. I “might as well” watch Pootytang because I’m bored. I “might as well” eat that corned beef because I’m hungry and there’s nothing else to eat. Those are “might as wells”. You don’t “might as well” get married. I’m laughing right now. I mean really?! Ladies, imagine your man proposing the thought of marriage to you like that. Well baby, we’ve already been together for 13 years, we might as well get married. Oh boy.
The next part that struck me was the 2nd verse, sung by a different group member:
Said I done it all, but frankly girl I’m tired of this emptiness
I wanna come home to you and only you
Cause making love to just anyone ain’t happenin’
I just gotta be with you
Did you think about, us finishing something we started so long ago
I wanna give you my all
Hmmm, so is he dating this girl exclusively already? Or what? If he isn’t dating her exclusively he wants to jump from that to marriage? If he is dating her exclusively, he’s tired of that “emptiness”? Well damn, that sucks being with a man that feels empty while he’s with me. Imagine after marriage when stuff really gets tough lol.
Sorry guys, just my crazy mind analyzing stuff again. Sometimes I feel like we don’t pay enough attention to the lyrics that we listen to. Alot of different messages in there. This one is not as bad, the song is still a good song. This is all in good fun people. I’m going to try and do a questionable lyrics post as often as I remember them.
