Reading this HoustonPress article by Linda Leseman, titled the Top Ten Worst Song Lyrics of 2007, really made me feel like an old fuddy-duddy. I didn't even know half these people!
Trill Fam? That's the first time I've even heard of 'em - but Linda's description made me snicker:
9. Trill Fam, “Watch My Shoes” Trill Fam has violated what should be an unspoken rule: songs about not stepping on shoes are best left to Elvis and Carl Perkins. The intro of “Watch My Shoes” contains more f-words than the Oxford English Dictionary. Still, the song expands its vocabulary with the chorus, which warns, “Do what ya do, but watch my shoes, dance wit ya boo, but watch my shoes…you can get loose, but watch my shoes, ‘cause you’ll get blues, you don’t watch my shoes.” One wonders why these particular shoes merit watching. According to Trill Fam, “They fresh out the box, and if you scuff ‘em I’m gonna have to knock you clean out your socks.” Point taken, but Perkins and the King are rolling in their graves.
