#SoCS April 3, 2021

Linda’s #SoCS prompt this week:

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “start with who/whom” Begin your post with either “who” or “whom” and go from there. Have fun!

Who's that, What's that?
I don't know what I'm doing
So I
Text her, WhatsApp,
Telling her to come through
And then I
Copped a Big Mac
Milk Shake and some large fries
It cost £4.50
Take the gherkin out of the inside...

Nico B

So, these are the beginning lyrics to a song that came to mind as soon as I read the prompt.

I remember the first time I heard this, on the radio last summer, as we travelled to one of Lil Man’s first Men’s Fifth Team matches.

The day was hot, so hot. A men’s match isn’t a couple of hours, rather a whole afternoon, bleeding into the evening.

This song came on, and the lyrics caught my attention as he was talking about a Macdonalds, and gettign a Big Mac without the gherkin…

I marvelled at the lyrical prowess of the newer artists. Actually, I laughed.

The song made no sense to me.

Why on earth was he singing about Maccy D’s?

It wasn’t until a few months later, when the song appeared on a compilation CD that I bought for Lil Princess, that I had a chance to listen to it, properly.

It seems to follow the story of a girl he got with, who ended up a bit of a psycho, and then he plants drugs on her so she gets caught by the police…

Still doesn’t explain the Big Mac sans gherkin, though…

    I also never heard this before, Sis! But the newer songs mostly all about sadness in real life. I think i have forgotten: Happy Easter, Sis! Enjoy your holidays! Michael

    Sometimes music is so far out of left field I just have to nod my head to the beat and appreciate it for what it is. 😆

    I often don’t understand the lyrics of songs, Ritu. Are you on school holidays now?
