Actual conversation that took place in the car yesterday between Lily and I:
Lily: I love this song!
Me: I do too – it’s catchy, isn’t it?
Lily: Yeah. But… what’s it about? Moving jaguars?
Me: No. They are actually saying “moves like Jagger.” There is a famous singer and his name is Mick Jagger. This song is about dancing like Mick Jagger – not actual jaguars.
Lily: Oh. (sounds disappointed)
Me: Would you like the song better if it was about dancing jaguars?
Lily: Yes, I really would.
Me: Well, I think the words are open to interpretation. Your version can be “Moves Like Jaguars.”
Lily: Oh yay! Now I really love this song!!!
True story. All of it.
Song in question – “Moves Like Jagger” by Maroon 5 featuring Christina Aguilera:
