"Milkshake" as written by Pharrell L Williams and Chad Hugo....
My milk shake brings all the boys to the yard,
And there like,
Its better than yours,
Damn right its better than yours,
I can teach you,
But I have to charge

I know you want it,
The thing that makes me,
What the guys go crazy for.
They lose their minds,
The way I wind,
I think its time

La la-la la la,
Warm it up.
Lala-lalala,
The boys are waiting

My milk shake brings all the boys to the yard,
And there like,
Its better than yours,
Damn right its better than yours,
I can teach you,
But I have to charge

I can see you're on it,
You want me to teach the
Techniques that freaks these boys,
It can't be bought,
Just know, thieves get caught,
Watch if your smart,

La la-la la la,
Warm it up,
La la-la la la,
The boys are waiting,

My milk shake brings all the boys to the yard,
And there like,
Its better than yours,
Damn right its better than yours,
I can teach you,
But I have to charge

Once you get involved,
Everyone will look this way-so,
You must maintain your charm,
Same time maintain your halo,
Just get the perfect blend,
Plus what you have within,
Then next his eyes are squint,
Then he's picked up your scent,

Lala-lalala,
Warm it up,
Lala-lalala,
The boys are waiting,

My milk shake brings all the boys to the yard,
And there like,
Its better than yours,
Damn right its better than yours,
I can teach you,
But I have to charge.

    My InterpretationTaken on a literal sense, this song generally means a woman who is "yummy", like a milkshake, it taste good and brings you pleasure when you are enjoying it. On a more context level, it could mean that milkshake is using the body to tease the boys and they like it, so she flaunts it.

    What I personally think is the true meaning of the song (Coming from a woman's perspective) Is the combination of the two.

    Basically,a woman who has high sex appeal, does not mean that she does sexual favors for the trashy attention. It just means that she has confidence in herself, which in turn makes her whole image look tasty. Its almost like an art of seduction, and the confident woman knows how to attract attention, without even trying. She flaunts her body, but because its sexy and shes proud of it because she has enough confidence in herself. People in general are attracted to confidence, and this makes them sexy and like a milkshake, you want some-- and for the woman who do not possess confidence , which makes them have less sex appeal, they get envious of the woman who is attracting the attention because woman in general like attention , and the lyrics are stating how "I can teach you, but I have to charge," yet contradicts when it states it cannot be brought. What she has within is worth more then the sex appeal itself.

    Unlike strippers and prostitutes that get payed, this is a clear distinction that it is not about sex for money , but its about a woman's natural abilities which she has mastered, and learned how to use,in order for her to have charisma in the room, which has all eyes looking-- and woman hate her for it cause they don't have what she has .

    When the boys say "there like, its better then yours" it should be on the same line, because its stating to the envious woman, that yeah, the guys think I am more delicious and desirable .

    General CommentKelis herself has said many times that a woman's "mlikshake" is her sex appeal and all that goes along with it.

    For a girl with big boobs, part of her "milkshake" are her breasts. For someone like Jennifer Lopez, it's her ass.

    Kelis also said that one's milkshake doesn't refer to anything specific, such as always boobs, but whatever a woman does to get confidence in her sex appeal and attract others. It doesn't even have to be a physical feature, it could refer to how she dances or even takes care of her man.

    Any way you slice it, the milkshake is the combination (like a real milkshake is) of things that blend together (like a real milkshake does) to get the overall woman and her appeal.

    General CommentP.S. Trick Me is sooooo much better, but for some reason it has no comments.... You can't even say that the meaning of this song is somehow "meaningful because sex appeal really is like a milkshake, a wonderful blend of mixed ingredients blah blah blah..." The only meaning of this song is "HEY GUESS WHAT IN CASE YOU DIDN'T KNOW I'M THE UBERHO", I doubt the author even thought about that milkshake analogy.

    Let me say again: LAME.

    General CommentYes, it's about blowjobs. There was a very interesting science class last year in which my biology teacher attempted to explain the song to an extremely dim-witted girl who he'd caught listening to it in class.

    General Commenti read an article that analyzed that song and concluded that Kelis lives in a strange fantasy world where she just stands in her front yard and shakes her breasts all day.

    General CommentTo analyse song lyrics, rap lyrics and the like, we must look to the chorus; the words repeated most often, the most important statements; and in this song we find:

    "My milkshake brings all the boys to the yard, and their like."

    So, Kelis attracts not only boys, but also their 'like'.

    Now, 'boys' is a broad term, encompassing young men, so whom else can she possibly mean? Who is 'like' boys?

    The answer is clear. Kelis is 'coming out', to use the common idiom. She is of the Sapphic persuasion; she's "on the team"; she's Lesbionic.

    You go, girl!

    General CommentMaybe I'm taking it too literally, but I think she may be talking about an actual milkshake that just tastes really effin good. Like the same way that in the summertime the ice cream guy comes around and all the boys chase after it, because he's delivering the everlasting promise of satiety in chocolaty form.
