Question: Guy, Pie, Bride or Ride?
I’m trying to get my marking completed tonight, so this will be brief. Does anyone know what the hell Rihanna is saying in the first line of “Only Girl”? When I first heard it, I thought she was saying:
“I want you to love me, like I’m a hot guy“
But I’m reasonably sure that’s not what she’s saying.
It also sort of sounds like she’s saying:
“I want you to love me, like I’m a hot pie“
and that’s what most lyrics websites1 have, but, seriously, that makes it sound like she singing to Homer Simpson.
This was being discussed on the radio this afternoon and one DJ suggested she’s actually saying:
“I want you to love me, like I’m a hot bride“
“I want you to love me, like I’m a hot ride“
Does anyone know, definitively, what the actual line is?
