What's with these homies, dissin' my girl
Why do they gotta front
What did we ever do to these guys
That made them so violent
Woo-hoo, but you know I'm yours
Woo-hoo, and I know you're mine
Woo-hoo, and that's for all time

Woo-ee-oo I look just like Buddy Holly
Oh-oh, and you're Mary Tyler Moore
I don't care what they say about us anyway
I don't care 'bout that

Don't you ever fear, I'm always there
I know that you need help
Your tongue is twisted, your eyes are slit
You need a guardian

Woo-hoo, but you know I'm yours
Woo-hoo, and I know you're mine
Woo-hoo, and that's for all time

Woo-ee-oo I look just like Buddy Holly
Oh-oh, and you're Mary Tyler Moore
I don't care what they say about us anyway
I don't care 'bout that

Bang! Bang a knock on the door
another big bang and you're down on the floor
Oh no! what do we do?
Don't look now but I lost my shoe
I can't run and I can't kick
What's a matter babe are you feelin' sick?
what's a matter, what's a matter, what's a matter you?
What's a matter babe, are you feelin' blue? oh-oh!

    General CommentI don't really think this song has any true secret meaning. I think it's about a relationship (platonic or romantic) between a woman and a man, and the man just continues to defend it (and her) no matter what other people say. It's just a fun song. And as for "don't look now, but I lost my shoe", I don't think that's has a meaning, it's just a crazy line.

    My Interpretation Actually, I never saw this song as 'Happy-Go-Lucky' at all. I always thought of it as having something a little darker and sadder to it. Especially the 'Bang bang' part, I imagine some sort of horrible crime happening to them...and he's trying to help this girl get away. That's just my interpretation.

    General Commenti think it's more like not caring about what anyone else thinks of them..just to themselves together.

    General CommentThis song is great. The video made it cool to dress in tight pants. OK, most people would disagree, but it's getting to the stage of being cool.
