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?
