This song teaches us there are things you should never compare a lady to.
This is a translation of the opening lyrics (Source)
Emphasis added by me
I feel the sensation; I feel it at once.
I’ll take you in one mouthful like cheese.
I take in [your] scent, scrutinize [your] color
I’ll eat you up with more refine than [drinking] wine.
Ah, but the strength in my toenail weakens, so my appetite yeah is gone.
While we can attribute many things to cultural differences, I feel safe in saying the following: NO GIRL WANTS TO BE COMPARED TO CHEESE! Not Korean girls. Not French girls. Not even the main character of the Cheese Shop Mysteries.
SEXY TIMES FAIL!
Ever watch A KNIGHT’S TALE? (If you haven’t, please consider doing so, because it is a great movie.) If you have, you know this is a lot like that scene. He compared her to his horse’s flanks! Same deal as cheese! Good intentions don’t make a comparison sexy. Really, the songwriter(s) should have kept it all wine related. That line should have been about licking her up. (Oh, my!) But. Not. Cheese.
P.S.- Bringing up your toenail is also not sexy.
I didn’t like this song at first, but I kept getting the howling part stuck in my head. And the only way to get it out was to listen to the song. It was like a fungus.
What are some other things you have seen girls/woman/ladies compared
to that should have never happened?
What’s the last song that fungus-ed on you?
