Dirty or Not Dirty

Welcome to one of the latest pageant controversies!

Now, it is rumored that a young lady (a teen) did a routine to the song "Low" by Flo Rida... and some of the mothers have found this to be offensive, some not. So in the spirit of fairness, I looked up the lyrics myself:

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

[Verse 1:]
I ain't never seen nuthin that'll make me go,
This crazy all night spendin my dough
Had a million dollar vibe and a bottle to go
Dem birthday cakes, they stole the show
So sexual, she was flexible
Professional, drinkin X and ooo
Hold up wait a minute, do I see what I think I
Did I think I seen shorty get low
Ain't the same when it's up that close
Make it rain, I'm makin it snow
Work the pole, I got the bank roll
Imma say that I prefer them no clothes
I'm into that, I love women exposed
She threw it back at me, I gave her more
Cash ain't a problem, I know where it goes

She had them

[Chorus:] (See words above)

[Verse 2:]
Shawty what I gotta do to get you home
My jeans full of gwap
And they ready for Shones
Cadillacs Maybachs for the sexy grown
Patrone on the rocks that'll make you moan

One stack (come on)
Two stacks (come on)
Three stacks (come on, now that's three grand)
[ Low lyrics found on ]
What you think I'm playin baby girl
I'm the man, I'll bend the rubber bands

That's what I told her, her legs on my shoulder
I knew it was ova, that Henny and Cola
Got me like a Soldier
She ready for Rover, I couldn't control her
So lucky oo me, I was just like a clover
Shorty was hot like a toaster
Sorry but I had to fold her,
Like a pornography poster
She showed her

[Chorus:] (See words above)

[Verse 3:]
Yea she was worth the money
Lil mama took my cash,
And I ain't want it back,
The way she bit that rag,
Got her them paper stacks,
Tattoo Above her crack,
I had to handle that,

I was on it, sexy woman, let me shownin
They be want it two in the mornin
I'm zonin in them rosay bottles foamin
She wouldn't stop, made it drop
Shorty did that pop and lock,
Had to break her off that gwap
Gah it was fly just like my glock

[Chorus:] (See words above)


Now, if you do a little digging on some of the phrases after translation are not very, er, "clean." (i.e. relative context of gwap - I won't spoil it for you but look it up...)

The question is, should the parents have allowed this? I personally don't think so, and considering I must be pretty liberal since I am one of those Moms that slaps fake eyelashes and a Dolly Parton wig on her kid from time to time... but even I draw the line.

In the forum discussions, several mothers stated that the mothers who posted said those of us more, uh, conservative folks were "over-reacting" to the song...

"It's a cute dance song"
"Well, HER parents didn't have an issue"
"THOSE AREN'T the lyrics"

Apparently, if you don't understand the lyrics, they must be okay.

Footnote - I happen to have this song on my ipod, but my kids? NO.


On another note. I watched Miss America Saturday night. I am so going to have to post on THAT.

I'm back. A-gain.

Hi all.

I'm probably speaking to desert and tumbleweeds now... My laptop died and I haven't been able to post (I do not want to risk using my work computer) for about a month as there are very few IT people I trust to work on my stuff and my wrasslingreferee-turned-ITguy-turned-ITguybyday-preacherbynight had to figure out how to get my poor equipment worked into his hectic schedule between coffee shop wireless set ups and ministering to his flock....

I'm back in business. WHEW.

To make matters worse:
Gizmo is going through a terrible behavior spell.
I am going through a terrible behavior spell.

For the record. I am very much ADHD and unfortunately so is my daughter. And I don't even believe in that hokey pokey stuff. I don't medicate Gizmo, but we do some nutritional therapy on her that seems to help. Me however... I've been on Adderall XR for a long time... and when I started taking it the following things happened:

My ability to fall asleep and stay asleep improved. I would finally wake up rested.
Improved memory.
Reduced need to interrupt or speak out of turn constantly.
Reduced speed in general. (especially fidgeting and mood swings)

But, at my family's urging, I tried to go off the medication. And I ended up moody, fidgety, and very depressed and irritable. So, I'm back on the meds and much better for it (3 days now!)

Glad to be here (and no more freeweb site browsing for me!!)
