“Peace up, A-Town down
Yeah! (yeahhh!) okay! (okayyy!)
Usher (Usher Usher Usher.)
Yeah (yeah) yeah (yeah) yeah (yeah) – yeah
Yeah (yeah) yeah (yeah) yeah (yeah) – yeah”
I will never understand how this song became a hit. “Yeah, yeah, yeah”? Mozart sat up in his anonymous grave and said, “Really? It was that easy? Why did I even bother writing real music?”
The song goes down from there into “shawty” and his conquest of her (or hers of him).
She’s all up in my head now
Got me thinking that it might
Be a good idea to take her with me
Cause she’s ready to leave (ready to leeeeaaavvee) (let’s go!)
Yeah, yeah, yeah! It’s not really even lyrics, but this song was a huge hit.
I remember a young woman who was a huge fan of Usher complaining about the Police song, “Don’t stand so close to me.” They sing, “Don’t stand, don’t stand so, don’t stand so close to me.” It’s not much better, but I always thought it was the creepy teacher stuttering.
Anyway, when I think of songs I can’t stand it’s this one. Usher doesn’t give a crap. He bought a G6 with the money he made from this song.
