I've always hated Lou Rawls for that song !

Know that song below ? You can read the lyrics - be my guest (especially the ladies) in what you think about those lyrics ... I heard the song today on the radio and for many years, I've always got a strange feeling when I heard it ...Ever since I was young I didn't relate to it and gettin older and in my early twenties I began to understand what was so annoying about this song.. Don't get me wrong - Lou Rawls has an excellent voice and I understand the song came out in 1977 ; I think when someone would introduce this song into the pop charts these days, only a band like the Bloodhound Gang could get away with it !
...
Look at those lyrics...and my comments to show you what I mean...



Pardon me, do you have change for a quarter?
I gotta make a phone call, thank you
Oh, I hope this woman don’t take me through no changes today
->> He's already wining before he sees this woman !!
‘Cause I’ve had a hard day today, man, you know
Let me see what’s happenin’ at the address ‘fore I go home

How you doin’, I hope you’re fine
Did your day take you through changes and mess up your mind
I just called to say that I’m on my way
Whoa, and I’ll see you when I get there

I hope you’re in a good mood
--> this would already put me in a BAD mood !
You know a man’s home is his castle, and I’m comin’ home to groove
--> f¨¨k you !
Whoa, and I’ll see you when I get there
I’ll see you when I get there

And you’ll be ready for good lovin’
--> this really pi**es me off ! He so takes that girl for granted !
I really hate it when they take you for granted !!
You’ll be ready for good lovin’
‘Cause I’ve worked hard all day
--> Oh yeah, and we are just sittin' on our lazy butts all day long ...a**hole
Now I’m comin’ home to be with the one I love

Candlelight, cold wine, soft music on the radio
--> Isn't that YOUR job !
And you got everything you need from the store
--> Start to hate him here !!
‘Cause I’ll be in for the evening and I don’t wanna come out nomore
Whoa, and I’ll see you when I get there
I’ll see you when I get there

And you’ll be ready for good lovin’
You’ll be ready for good lovin’
‘Cause I’ve worked hard all day
Now I’m comin’ home to lay and relax my mind
--> this is the worst sentence off the whole song


Whoa, I’ll see you when I get there
I’ll see you when I, see you when I get there, baby
--> don't call me baby !
[I’ll see you when I get there] I’ll see you when I get there
[I’ll see you when I get there] I’ll see you when I get there,baby
--> DON'T call me baby !!
[I’ll see you when I get there] See you when I get there
[I’ll see you when I get there] See you when I get there, baby
--> at this point I'll be throwing a killer stiletto to his face !

Whoa, I’ll see you when I get there
I’ll see you when I get there

And you’ll be ready for good lovin’
You’ll be ready for good lovin’
‘Cause I’ve worked hard all day
Now I’m comin’ home to lay and relax my mind

Whoa, I’ll see you when I get there
I said I’ll see you when I get there, baby
I said I’ll see you when I get there
I said I’ll see you when I get there, baby

I said I might have to run all the way
Because the bus might be slow today
I’ve been thinkin’ about you all day long
And I just can’t wait to get home

I’ll see you when I get there
I’ll see you when I get there, baby
[You’ll be ready] I’ve been workin’ hard all day, you’ve been onmy mind
[You’ll be ready]
I can’t go on without you, darling, by myside
[I’ll see you when I get there] I’ll see you when I get there
[I’ll see you when I get there]
[I’ll see you when I get there] I’ll see you when I get there,baby
