Now, On To More Important Things

Another hit song, "Get Low", has come to my attention, and I have to admit, I really like the song, the lyrics, well, I don't even know half of the words so now I don't feel as bad about not being able to sing along. Regardless, I find that the chorus and the made up chorus I wrote below are a sad parody to my college years and my current working years.

The "Real" Chorus:
Get Low
Shawty had them Apple Bottom Jeans [Jeans]
Boots with the fur [With the fur]
The whole club was lookin at her
She hit the flo [She hit the flo]
Next thing you know
Shawty got low low low low low low low low

Them baggy sweat pants
And the Reeboks with the straps [With the straps]
She turned around and gave that big booty a smack [Ayy]
She hit the flo [She hit the flo]
Next thing you know
Shawty got low low low low low low low low

My Chorus:
Shawty had them Limited pants
Flats with the arch support*
The whole office was lookin at her
She stared at the wall
Next thing you know
Shawty got bored bored bored

Them baggy sweaters*
And the Liz Claiborne heels with the flex*
She turned around and gave that computer a whack
She stared at the wall
Next thing you know
Shawty got bored bored bored



*Disclaimer: My running shoes are the only shoes I own, unfortunately, with arch support. I do not wear baggy sweaters nor do I own a pair of the Liz Claiborne flex shoes, they do look tempting though (not to the eye, to the feet). The chorus is a bit of an exaggeration but so are most chorus's. However, I really do despise working in a cubicle and I only own one pair of Limited work pants b/c I find that they are typically overpriced and made of cheap material (Banana Republic I heart you).

Side note: When I spell checked this post, almost the entire chorus came up.

BTW I will probably be the only person who ever comments on this so you will have to deal with that. I have a funny story about that. I ran into one of my co-workers at a basketball game. Her daughter who is 6 asked if she could sing me a song. I said sure, thinking it would be one that she learned in school. Nope she sang this song. So funny. Her mom quickly said that she heard that song when she was with her father. It was classic so there you go. You prefer songs that 6 year olds like...just kidding...I kind of like it too!
