The hot arrow

I don’t usually post three days in row.

But Sunday I wrote about the sheep shearers wife who is fucking some guy she met on the Internet.
When a couple of people questioned whether I was “for real,” I wrote a post about how my sons want to open clothing stores aimed at targeting the prostitute demographic.

However, upon rereading this post, I felt like I’d come off as this whiny, complaining bitch; all “Waaaaah! I’ve been done a grave injustice so give me lots of sympathy!”

So now I’m posting yet again in order to wipe away the vision you may have of me being all pathetic and cranky.

 This is a song my seven year old and his friend wrote.

Here, let me help you.

The title:
The Hot Arrow

Gril if you loved
me I wod shoot
an [picture of an arrow] in your
[picture of smiley face with arrow through smiley face] I wol love
u to I wol be
your noo man

Girl if you loved me, I would shoot an arrow in your head
I would love you too
I would be your new man
{b4 T5….I have absolutely no idea what this means…perhaps code for “We will kill our parents while they sleep.}

I tried explaining to my son that if he shot an arrow in a girl’s head, she would probably want a new man.

My daughter suspects that the boys were referring to cupid with the whole “arrow” theme.

Honestly, at this stage of the game, I’m just worried that at the age of seven, they still can’t spell the word: ‘girl.’

    Sounds like he has a career in the heavy metal genre.

    most kids spell girl wrong for longer than they should.
    but those are some rocking lyrics if you like angry love songs.

    This song sounds eerily familiar to me. I think I have heard my graddaughters play it, except the guy says he would put an arrow (or gun, I forget) in His own head, not hers.
    I could be wrong, but maybe they heard it somewhere. Do not despair!

    Many boys cannot spell girl even in their mid to late twenties. Gurl, yo kids be fine.

    You think Justin Bieber started out this way? PS – read your Chilean Monkey post to my friends at a bar the other night (it was either that or keep looking at pictures of a Pirate Party). Yes – you are now 'bar entertainment.' Thought you'd dig that.

    Hilarious! I think they're just trying to start a new fad by misspelling “girl”! Know what i mean, gril?

    I was able to read it in the original form and understand it!

    A suggestion: perhaps the b4 T5 is a reference to how long he would love her…be forty five, maybe?

  13. The Restaurant Manager
    February 23, 2011 | 4:54 am

    Could be an instant hit! Maybe Bieber could sing it.

    lol… Some of the most creative lyrics I've seen in a while! Perhaps the b4 T5 thing is the name of the band they have in mind for said lyrics?

  16. StephanieC
    February 23, 2011 | 5:15 am

    This has the markings of Colour Me Bad. Or Color Me Badd. Or whatever the hell they were called.

    Hey, at least they were showing some artistic creativity! Right? RIGHT?!?!

    Or looking to inflict head wounds on girls and murder parents.

    One or the other.

    Seriously?… Reeeally??… Seriously?

    b4 and T5 are obviously their street names. Though I did spit out my pretzel at your interpretation of that Lyric. I think someday they will make some gril very happy.

    Ok I gotta say that that song was kinda cute.

    Well, at least he's being creative. Lyrics and artwork! Maybe he's the next P Diddy.

  22. From Tracie
    February 23, 2011 | 6:00 am

    I would say it is double artistic.

    Song lyrics and art.

    Anything to keep them from shooting an arrow in your face.

    I think the b4 T5 means “I will be your new man before Tuesday, the 5th.”

    But it could also mean he wants to kill you in your sleep.

    I'm sure that's not what it means though.

    You may want to lock your door at night just the same.

    I can honestly say that no one has ever serenaded me with a song that involves shooting arrows at my head – but then what do I know about romance?

    February 23, 2011 | 11:37 am

    I don't think it's THAT odd that they wanna shoot arrows through a loved one's head…I feel that way on a daily basis…just sayin.

    My kids can't spell for shit either. But my oldest plays a mean guitar. So far his songs have names like “Stinky Foot” and “Thick, Yellow Lugey”. Nothing quite as romantic as your kid who wants to shoot an arrow through his girlfriend's skull.

  35. Diane
    February 23, 2011 | 1:41 pm

    This sounds exactly like something my two would could up with. That arrow through the head part is stinkin' hilarious!

  36. Random Girl
    February 23, 2011 | 1:59 pm

    Sadly enough, the lyrics and the spelling are far above some the stuff that is playing on Pandora right now.. at this very moment. May I reference “Black and Yellow”? Wiz Khalifa could learn a thing from these kids. If what I just referenced is completely foreign to you, consider yourself lucky.

    Yeah, I have students that at age 12 can't spell girl, so don't you be worried yet. But. ummm. Shooting the one you love right in the head? With an arrow? Maybe a cause for concern….. And b4 is clearly before but t5? t – 5 and counting? Until he shoots the arrow….? Your family never lets you just sit and think about nothing, do they????

    Awww, gee, this little song is adorable!

    Also, worrisome. I'd some serious time Googling that b4 T5 reference if I were you. You might have a couple of psychopaths on your hands.

    And now, I'm off to read the previous two posts. I might have ignored them, but you really piqued my interest.

    my step-brother not only couldn't spell girl but he called them “grills” until he was like 15.

    That sounds kind of like an Eminem song. Maybe they could sell some of their hard core rap lyrics.

    AT least, it doesn't sound like a Bieber song.

    Your son has that edgy, Jim Morrison meets Marilyn Manson meets Harry Connick Jr. thing going on.

    FYI, B4 T5 is short for Bee Four Tee Five

  61. Mamma has spoken
    February 24, 2011 | 12:17 am

    Yea, once set to music it won't matter what the words are, it will all sound the same. B4 T5 will come out before tits fly and all will be right in the world.

    Girl…John…Brian…Circus…so many pitfalls at that age…hahaha.

    I would definitely agree that shooting a girl in the head with an arrow is definitely a Chris Brown-type thing. Probably best to stay away from that variety of mayhem.

    So basically what I'm understanding from this post is that my 5-year-old is going to go from singing “Like a G-6″ all wrong to writing her own lyrics all wrong in a year or two.

    I can't wait.
