Come get some??

Remember Nelly Furtado? No, not the promiscuous, made-over, Courtney Cox look-alike Nelly Furtado, but the old one. The Nelly Furtado who sang about being like a bird and the other zippy, peppy songs that me as a kid used to listen to..whose lyrics seemed playfully innocent at the time.

Well, that changed!

No, not Nelly! Well, she did too, but what I mean here is my interpretation of her songs. There was 'Turn off the Lights', remember? Just recently a friend and I were singing the song, and we both stopped at the same line, not knowing the complete lyrics. After midniiight, morning will come and the day will see......?
I figured the next line had something to do with the rising sun or something of the sort..but when I went home and listened to song, I realized she was talking about someone 'getting some'!! Woah! OK I know its not a big deal, but the little kid in me was in total shock!! To think, the whole time I'd thought it was a song about some chick who was scared of the dark or something(OK thats not what I thought it was, but it seems appropriate, considering the title). And it actually was about some guy trying to have his way with the girl! Jeez!

Talk about ruined childhood!
