"Frenchy, I'm Faking" as written by and Cameron Bird....
Frenchy, I'm faking, been looking to stir you up
Changing looks slightly like back in the 90s
Far and away whistle delayed delights
The prospect of lightning was ever so frightening

I said your kisses are nice, but I'm looking for hills to roll
Down with abandon and no understanding
I borrowed your suitcase and filled it with pearls and gold
You let me down lightly
I killed you politely

    General CommentSo much to love in this song:
    +How everything comes to a hault every couple lines. And +The random samples throughout the song.

    And most of all, I love the lines 'you let me down lightly. i killed you politely' Stellar.

    General CommentI love this song. it's wonderful.

    while this probably isn't correct. I look at the song like this. I think that is is about a relationship gone wrong. where one person is just using the other. the majority of the song is the user talking to the person making excuses for themselves. telling them how they have changed and how they are not happy anymore. "letting them down lightly." in the end, the other party is saying, "well ok, you let me down lightly, that's nice and exceptable, so I killed you politely."

    General Commenti think the 'you let me down lightly i killed you politely' line is fantastic because, the way i see it, hes traslating what the other person is saying.

    they say 'i let you down lightly' and hes saying, 'yeah, you let me down lightly, but you still let me down.'

    the 'i killed you politely' line is the perfect follow up because 'to let someone down lightly' is such a common phrase no one really looks at what it means anymore. but 'i killed you politely' puts it into perspective; it doesnt really matter how you kill someone, because youre still killing them.

    aih is fantastic.

    General CommentIs "Frenchy, I'm faking" from Grease? It seems familiar to me (it seems as something Sandy said to Frenchy).

    Eitherway, I agree-- "You let me down lightly, I killed you politely" is the BEST line, in almost any song, ever.
