Toktok vs. Soffy O. — Missy Queen's Gonna Die Lyrics

Submitted by Druss on Sat, 2018-05-05 02:55

There's this rather mesmerising German electronic track named Missy Queen's Gonna Die for which there aren't very good lyrics out there. Here's a better attempt:

You fooling around with my feelings has been too hard on me
Just listen to my voice
ain't got something nice
To say to you now
Ain't got something nice
To say to you now

You wanna love me
You wanna hold me and you want to touch me
But just when you feel I do
And not when I want to

Why is the vagina also known as "pussy"?

There appear to be a number of theories as to why the slang for the vagina (or perhaps more precisely, the vulva) is pussy. The most common derivation that I see in dictionaries and other resources is that it can be traced back to the Old Norse puss meaning "pouch" or "pocket". In that sense, it is not unlike the etymology of vagina which itself comes from the Latin vagina meaning "sheath" or "scabbard".

I've noticed a few people using the idiomatic phrase "prime of place" to denote the primacy of position in a group of things.

While the idiom certainly appears to make sense, fits in quite well, and even sounds familiar, it is not really standard usage.

Why is a penis also called a cock?

Somebody asked me earlier today why a penis is also called a cock. I assumed that it had something to do with the rooster (the male chicken) being called a cock. While this is true, there's a little bit more to tell. Here's a brief investigation into the matter.

According to Etymonline:

Slang sense of "penis" is attested since 1610s (but cf. pillicock "penis," from c.1300);

What are the "la la la", "la dee da" bits in a song called?

Submitted by Druss on Thu, 2013-02-28 01:37

I was trying to describe the lyrics of a song today and stumbled when I reached a section with a bunch of "la la la" bits. I suppose I could have well just termed them as la-la-la bits, but seeing as to how I apparently have all the time in the world (not my words), I decided to see if there was something a bit more definitive that I could use. A wittle googling later, I chanced upon the answer.
