A New Country Song

Yesterday as I was driving the 30 minutes it takes to get to the grocery store, I heard a new country song.  You see, the only time I listen to the radio is when I’m driving, which probably isn’t the best time since all of the kids are usually with me.  This is why L~ know all the words to that Taylor Swift song “Picture to Burn” or whatever it’s called (L~ is my only child who really pays attention to the songs on the radio).

Anyway, probably not the best song for an almost nine-year-old girl to be taking to heart.  At least it’s not as bad as when she was three and knew every single last word to “Killing Earl”.  I was never so grateful for her shyness as I was when she was in love with that song.  I feared that one Sunday she would go to primary and, while all the other kids were sweetly singing “I Am a Child of God,” she would stand on a chair and start belting about hiding bruises under long sleeves and stuffing a dead man into the trunk of a car.

Thank goodness Midge doesn’t pay that much attention to the radio.

So, the new song.  I don’t know who sings it (surprise!), and maybe it’s only new to me, but I’m guessing the title is “Tangled Up In Your Love” because that is what the guy kept singing over, and over and over.

Towards the end, however, he decided to shake things up a bit and went through a litany of things in which he was tangled:

Tangled up in your bed,
Tangled up in your sheets,
Tangled up in your hair . . .

At this point I was holding my breath, fearing the onslaught of garbled lyrics about being tangled up in her cooler, but . . . phew.

No.  He was just “tangled up in your love.”  Again.

And George, if you’re out there, Tewt the Newt isn’t tangled up in anything, thank goodness.

  1. Here are all the lyrics. It’s probably good the kids don’t pay attention… 🙂

    Touch me tell me what you want me to do
    I want to take a little trip around you
    You set me on fire
    Ohhhh you set me on fire

    Chorus:

    Lock me up inside of this room
    I just want to be close to you
    I cant take it anymore
    Baby I want you so much
    I want to feel your breath on my skin
    Find that place we’ve never been
    I wanna spend all night tangled up
    In your love

    Kiss me, kiss me ’til the sun comes up
    Slow, sweet I can never get enough
    Of your love
    Your taking me higher
    Ohhhhhh your taking me higher

    Yeah, lock me up inside of this room
    I just want to be close to you
    I cant take it anymore
    Baby I want you so much
    I want to feel your breath on my skin
    Find that place we’ve never been
    I wanna spend all night tangled up
    In your love
    Yeah

    Yeah,lock me up inside of this room
    I just want to be close to you
    I cant take it anymore
    Baby I want you so much
    I want to feel your breath on my skin
    Find that place we’ve never been
    I wanna spend all night tangled up
    In your love

    Tangled up in your love
    Tangled up in your love
    Tangled up in your bed
    Tangled up in your sheets
    Tangled up in your hair
    Tangled up in your love
    Tangled up in your love
    Yeah

    Sorry I missed your call but I see you were able to find something productive to do while driving. E~ loves the Taylor Swift song too. She sings along very loudly. I don’t think I have to worry about her getting too much from the lyrics because other than the part about not getting to drive his “stupid old pick-up truck” she gets most of it wrong. Interesting what a 5 yr old fills in. On the down side, both girls know ALL the words to “Gun Powder and Lead” … that can’t be good. In my defense, “Ken” was found naked and dismembered across the room from the “Dream House” long before that song ever came out. I think I’ll keep the pieces and hang them on the front door when they turn 16 to scare off the boys.

    Ahh…Billy Currington, a.k.a. the missing link, has some steamy songs. You must not be fimiliar with “Must Be Doin’ Somethin’ Right” – what’s that about, Mom?

  3. Too funny! I’m a big DC fan, and my friend and I realized that their lyrics are quite easy for little ones to remember. Her daughter’s favorite wasn’t about killing Earl- she always asked to listen to the “matress dancing” song!

    The only question I have is how long is this woman’s hair? I mean seriously, nothing can get tangled in my hair it is too thin and not long enough!
