It's like you said, it's all been done before
I don't have to talk pretty for them no more
(x2)


I can talk what I want, how I wanna (x3)
I don't have to talk taste for you, Mama
No, no

Ray-ray-ray-raise me up (x2)

Ray-raise me up (x2)

It's the voodoo, Mississippi south
69 million stars
Birds are flying out of my mouth
Spirits creeping in my yard

Hold my head, it's tilting back
Something dancing me around
Putting crystals on my neck
Lifting my feet off the ground

Ray-ray-ray-raise me up (x2)
Ray-raise me up (x2)

(x2)

Oh, see, what you've done now
Oh, me, that's what i'm talking about
Oh, me, what you've done
Oh, me, it's what i'm talking 'bout

It's what I'm talking 'bout, it's what I'm talking about

Pick me up in a pickup truck
Roll down, you've got it going on
Let me talk on your CV1
Let me play with your new shotgun

Ray-ray-ray-raise me up (x2)
Ray-raise me up (x2)

(x2)

 

(Ray-ray-ray-raise me up

I can talk what I want how I wanna (x3)

I don't have to talk taste for you, Mama)

It's the voodoo, mississippi south
69 million stars
Birds are flying out of my mouth

This is how I came into being. Like Athena from the mind of Zeus, I sprang fully formed from the mouth of Lana. You knew there had to be some voodoo shit involved, didn't you?

A bad sample, repeated often with unwarranted glee.

I was actually just wondering about this yesterday--if Emile Haynie already had your sounds prior to the recording of BTD or if he made them specifically for the record. I wonder if he even made them or if it's some stock shit that he manipulated. And did he show Lana and she liked it, or did he just add it to a song on his own and showed her later? Also, i wonder who is responsible for the repetitive use of it--did she hear it on one song and insist that he use it more because she liked it so much, or was it completely his own doing to slather the entire record with it? Is anyone familiar with his productions for other people? That might provide answers.

A CB is something like a walkie talkie. The police use it.

This is what I came up with, corrections are welcome (in fact very welcome as I'll be using these to make a CD)

It was quite a short time ago that I realized there was a nice play on words in the song (that "Ray" refers to Lizzy's stage name) xD . Then I loved the song even more. Lana is a genius to have created something like this.

I always thought it was "there's a route to Mississippi south" instead of  "its the voodoo Mississippi south"

guess not?

i always thought it was voodoo but there's a route makes so much more sense!! i'm playing right now to hear it again. i'm gonna press enter twice and then tell you what i think.

 

.i heard "this a route to" maybe "this the route to" or maybe "this the route two"

 

nope now i hear "mister voodoo"

damn it

 

now i hear "it's the voodoo"

 

what does 69 million stars mean?

Not that it's a big difference but isn't it "I don't have to talk taste for YOUR mama"?

Due to my crazed obsession with this song (okay, it's really all LDR's songs but the southern-y ones in particular always get to me) I decided to go through and make corrections to these lyrics that I felt were more accurate. Please, please, please if they need altering in anyway do not hesitate to do so. I do trust my ears and the millions of times I've scream-sang these words in my car. Hope they help. :heart:

 

Intro: [Ray] Ray-ray-ray-raise me up

talk-talk-talk...

Ray-raise.

 

It's like you said, it's all been done before

I don't have to talk pretty for them no more [x2]

 

I can talk what I want, how I wanna [x3]

 

I don't have to talk taste for your momma.

 

No, no, no.

Say no.

 

Ray-ray-ray-raise me up

Ray-ray-ray-raise me up

Ray-raise me up

Ray-raise

 

It’s a voodoo Mississippi south

Sixty-nine million stars

Birds are flying out of my mouth

Spirits creeping in my yard

 

Hold my head, it’s tilting back

Somethin' dancing me around

Putting crystals on our neck

Lifting my feet off the ground

The ground

 

Ray-ray-ray-raise me up

Ray-ray-ray-raise me up

Ray-raise me up

Ray-raise me up

Me up

 

Oh see, look what you've done now.

Oh, me, that’s what I’m talking ‘bout

Oh, me, look what you've done now.

Oh, me, it’s what I’m talking ‘bout

It’s what I’m talkin’ ‘bout

It’s what I’m talking about

 

Pick me up in a pickup truck

Roll it down, you’ve got it going on

Let me talk on your CB watt

Let me play with your new shotgun

Shotgun

 

Ray-ray-ray-raise me up

Ray-ray-ray-raise me up

Ray-raise me up

Ray-raise me up

 

Ray-ray-ray-raise me up

Ray-ray-ray-raise me up

Ray-raise me up

Ray-raise me up

 

[shotgun]

Ray-ray-ray-raise me up

[shot...]

 

I can talk what I want, how I wanna

I can talk what I want, how I wanna

I can talk what I want, how I wanna

I don’t have to talk taste for your momma

No

IMO the whole song is kinda sung towards or about someone else so that's why I think it's 'your'. Plus I just hear it

Is the "Rai-rai, rai-raise me up" part actually "Ray Ray, Ray raise me up" 'cause you know, Ray's a guy in Kill Kill and such. I feel dumb for asking this but I've been wondering for at least 3 years so :hooker:
