Pronunciation please, Jason!

For an old(ish) gal, I'm still a bit of a pop babe which is why Want To Want Me by Jason Derulo is one of my songs of the moment.

However, I've had a bit of a problem with it. For a while, I was convinced that the first six lines of the lyrics were:

It's too hard to sleep
I got the shits on the floor
Nothing on me
And I can't take it no more

It's a hundred degrees
I got one foot out the door
Where are my keys?
'Cause I gotta leave, yeah

I'll be honest this situation rings quite a few bells with me. And I don't blame him for wanting to get out of his house if he's had the shits and it's a hundred degrees. I have a problem with the shits at normal room temperature.

Also, what normal person wants to sing about having the shits? 

Oh, okay, I wrote about having the shits.  Maybe folks do want to sing about it too.

Hmm... maybe that's what Bridge Over Troubled Waters is about?

Anyway, eventually I realised it's not the "shits" Jason is singing about but "sheets."

I was bit disappointed really. I was beginning to think Jason was a music rebel - turns out he was singing yet another love song. Humph.

Well here's Jason singing Want to Want Me. It's a great funky song and he's a pretty cool dancer so it's great entertainment. I wasn't quite so keen about the young lady sticking her butt in the air all the time like a meerkat on heat though. Give me Dame Shirley Bassey in a full-length gown any day. Now that's what I call classy.
