A conversation I wish I'd never started - No.4


Another in the series of embarrassing mother/teenage son conversations. (For reference, may I suggest conversation one, two and three)

Me: There's a song I can't get out of my head.
Son: Oh God, here we go again! What song?
Me: I think it's something about cheesy lips
Son: Cheesy lips?
Me: Well I think that's what he says. It goes, "la, la, la, la, dum-de-dum-de-dum...when I kiss you, on your cheesy lips'
Son: You've got to be kidding me!
Me: He sings funny. I can't make out the words but I'm sure it's 'cheesy lips', though it could be cheeky lips, or hips, or tips?
Son: Who do you think is singing?
Me: Sounds a bit like Cee Lo Green?
Son: Where have you heard it?
Me: It's on the radio all the time.
Son: I'll go and have a look at the playlists. So you think it's called 'Kiss you on your cheesy lips' by someone who might, or might not, be Cee Lo Green?
Me: Yup, that's it.

Son returns after exhaustive look at Radio One and Two playlists:

Son: I've found it
Me: Ooh great! What is it then?
Son: It's called 'No One' by Maverick Sabre.
Me: What about the cheesy lips?
Son: The lyric is 'cheating lips'
Me: Well it bloody well doesn't sound like 'cheating lips' to me.

What do you think?

  1. Hi, I've heard this song too. Not surprised you thought it was cheesy lips lol! And it's obvious watching the video that he's Plan B's protege, isn't it?

    K xx

    1. Plan B! Yes of course. Nothing like Cee Lo Green is he haha!

  2. There was a guy a while back that kept singing 'my socks are on fire' it made no damned sense to me at all. Although I'm not convinced it made any more sense once daughter stopped laughing and told me. I guess we're getting old.

    1. I think socks on fire sounds infinitely more sensible than the correct 'sex on fire'. Electrical faults with washing machines can cause this, I've heard.

  3. I've never heard this song, but I watched the video with an open mind, and I would have heard 'cheesy lips' as well. I bet Rory loves these conversations. My boys would have found that exchange hilarious and would have enjoyed reminding me of it...frequently.

    1. There you go! I thought I wasn't going mad.
      Rory relishes proving me wrong, as is the duty of all children.

  4. Definitely definitely cheesey lips. Maybe they've been eating wotsits! :)

    1. Lol! Kissing cheesy lips is nearly as bad as garlic breath.

  5. It sounds like an advert for Dairy Lea to me.

    1. I think he was enjoying me talking rubbish. Plus I didn't describe the head shakes and long sighs haha!

    1. To be fair, it's probably somewhere between the two. He says 'cheetsy' which to me is far more like cheesy than cheating. So glad you agree, Jen.

  8. Never heard of this, but I hear 'cheesy' too, so it's his bad diction, he's probably got a speech impediment. :)

    1. Needs elocution lessons, does Mr Sabre!

  9. I could not watch the video as it is not available in Germany so I cannot give my two cents. I can however say that your "conversation" posts crack me up!!

    1. Oh that's a shame. You've missed a very catchy song with poor enunciation!
      I wish I'd started writing these conversations down years ago; there would be a lot more than four.

  10. I still think of Jessie J's Price Tag as Pay Pal to this day - to the extent that I really had to think about that last sentence and draaaaaaaag 'price tag' out of some deep well. I shall now enjoy Cheesy Lips forever more. Thank you for making life way more interesting!

    1. Just had a listen (cos I found the headphone thingies) - it is definitely CHEESY lips. No cause for complaint.

    2. My whole family still tease me about PayPal. I think she should do a new version.

      And thank you, cheesy it is. I am not an idiot.

    1. Don't worry. It would appear that neither do I.

  12. I managed to disgust my daughter by singing along to a song called "Sexy and I Know It" recently. She said I was behaving inappropriately...haha!

  13. Reminds me of Whoopi Golberg in Jumping Jack Flash when she says “Mick, Mick, Mick speak English!!” I can definitely relate though. We got our first telly and then along came ITV with all of its adverts. I always thought the words in the ad for Andrews Liver Salts were “Ever Blessing Andrews” – who knew at 7 years old it was Effervescing Andrews. Likewise Fairy snow with their slogan “For Hands Judicious” which my father (while actually keeping a straight face) told me was actually “For Hands That Do Dishes”. Guess it’s not just old age; apparently I was always deaf, dumb and demented.

    1. Haha! You have a very good vocabulary to have heard the word 'judicious' instead of 'do dishes'!

  15. I like cheesy lips better because the cheater was probably cheesy as well. See how we mothers are all on the same page? I usually think the song lyrics go something like: "hsanna blaaba a dooba dabba" and don't they? (And thanks for letting me know about catcha code, will wait for tech ass. to get home, aka the 14 year old..)

    1. Oh now we're really getting into the sentiments behind the lyric. Cheating lips are cheesy. I like it!

      Hope the tech ass sorted your word verification thing. It has become a problem with a lot of blogs lately due to a Blogger change.
