So I have to admit, I’m going to the New Kids On The Block Concert next weekend. My best friend bought her, myself and another girlfriend of ours tickets. I also have to admit, I was never a fan. But this is going to be fun. Three married 30-year-olds, one of whom is 6 months pregnant, going to a NKOTB concert deserves some laughs.
In preparation of the big night, my husband bought the new record — do they call them that anymore? — on iTunes. I listened to it at the gym tonight and was shocked at the lyrics.
Let’s take a look at “Lights, Camera Action”:
“You go hit the lights, I’ll set up the camera
Let’s get to the action
I’ve been thinking about this for some time
I got a freaky temptation burnin’ deep inside
You say the strip’s already rolling
And the bedroom is the set
I hope you know your lines ’cause one take is all we get”
OK, so now we’re celebrating videotaping what happens in the bedroom.
What about “Sexify My Love”?:
“Girl, don’t be shy, you’re looking so fly,
Tonight I wanna try every position we can dream of
All over the house, workin’ that thing, girl, makin’ you shout
Take it fast, slow, do it like a pole slide, all the ways to get low, low…”
Whatever happened to “Hangin’ Tough?”, “Step By Step”, “The Right Stuff”? Guess these boys grew up. Glad I’m not a teenage girl listening to this… imagine the ideas I would get.
