So, if you live in or around the Indianapolis area, you know that we’ve been enjoying a mighty fine spring so far. The weather has been pretty much awesome for most of the month of April. And so when possible, I have been taking neighborhood walks after work to get some fresh air and listen to tunes on my ipod.
One of my most favorite albums to walk to is Britney’s Circus album (insert any number of jokes here). And there is one song in particular, called Lace and Leather, which has a really nice beat for the tail end of my walk. But here’s the thing. Everytime I hear it, I get annoyed by the 2nd verse, which starts like this:
Heels, six inch make a boy want to bite his lip
Look but don’t touch unless you want to lose your innocence
And I know this is going to sound totally irrational, but it bugs the crap out of me that she says “Heels six inch” instead of “Six inch heels.” I mean, there’s no rhymular issue which would be created as a result of constructing the sentence in a logical manner. There is, in fact, no reason whatsoever NOT to say, “Six inch heels” instead of “Heels, six inch.”
WHY DOES SHE SING IT THAT WAY? WHY?
