Dance Hall Daze

I was listening to a podcast yesterday, and they played this song, and I listened to that:

Did you listen to it? Did you? Really?

We start simply with "Take your baby by the hand and make her do a high hand stand " Er... I'm not sure why you would want to make her do that, let alone what exactly a high hand stand is...

"And take your baby by the heel and do the next thing that you feel. " So... just anything that comes to mind, that you feel you should do... while you have her heel in your hand... I'm not sure if that's weird or creepy.

"Take your baby by the hair and pull her close and there there there " Ah, now you are pulling your woman around by her hair. Okay, that's that damn psychotic. And what's damn psychotic is:

"And take your baby by the ears and play upon her darkest fears." What... like "hey, baby, I'm going to kidnap you and take you back to my place where..." actually, fill in the blanks yourself. But why the hell are you doing that? What sick control fantasy are you living out that you need to play on her darkest fears???

But then it just gets surreal. "Take your baby by the wrist and in her mouth an amethyst" Or maybe that's your signature serial killer move? Putting jewels in her face? Certainly it continues in the next line with "And in her eyes two saphires blue ".

Now, this is a fun, up-beat song... but damn those lyrics reveal that being "cool on craze" has a completely different meaning...
