"Can the Can [*]" as written by Michael Donald Chapman and Nicholas Barry Chinn....
Well you call your mamma tiger
And we all know you are lying
And your boyfriend's name is eagle
And he lives up in the sky (high high)
Watch out the tiger don't go claw the eagle's eye
But let the eagle take the tiger by surprise
Scratch out her eyes

So make a stand for your man, honey
Try to can the can
Put your man in the can, honey
Get him while you can
Can the can
Can the can
If you can
Well can the can

Well your sister's got the feline touch, she touches up your mind
And your eagle lover likes his little bit of evil loving all the time
Don't let the cat get into the eagle's nest at night
Because the eagle could say "yes" without a fight
Scratch out her eyes

So make a stand for your man, honey
Try to can the can
Put your man in the can, honey
Get him while you can
Can the can Can the can
If you can
Well can the can

Ooh can the can (Can the can honey)
Ooh can the can (Can the can honey)
Uh uh can the can (Can the can honey)
Ooh can the can (Can the can honey)
Ooh can the can (Can the can honey)
Ooh can the can (Can the can honey)
AAAAH!
Honey, honey
Honey, honey, honey
Make a stand for your man, honey
Try to can the can
Put your man in the can, honey
Get him while you can
Can the can
Can the can
If you can
Make a stand for your man, honey
Try to can the can
Put your man in the can, honey
Get him while you can
Can the can
Can the can
If you can
Aah!
Make a stand for your man

    My InterpretationThis song is a incentive for girls to keep guys which today is very necesary where women cheat being whores and expect men to act like home man.
    According to songwriter Nicky Chinn, the words "can the can" mean " ... something that is pretty impossible, you can't get one can inside another if they are the same size, so we're saying you can't put your man in the can if he is out there and not willing to commit". So what she is saying is that women have to take initiative and pursue men in commitment which if you ask me it suits to todays society and leaves the decision making for the man. I can say that MAN WILL SURELY MAKE A KNOWLEDGEABLE DECISION IF HE'S THE EDUCATED MAN because presumably the woman will choose the best( which in my oppinion it will not happen as womens reputation go down with their prostitution.
