    What does this sentense mean?

    Hi,

    I have a question I hope u don't mind answering it.

    My first language is Arabic so please I hope the answer be more clear.


    I'll be the yoyo on a string
    I must be bopping

    This sentence I found it in Jennifer Lopez's song. The song is called "Hold It Don't Drop It"

    Another favor please for me.

    In general I guess I know what the mean of words of the song but Could anyone tell me what exactly it talking about.

    The lyrics of the song is :
    Artist: Jennifer Lopez
    Album: Brave
    Title: Hold It Don't Drop It



    You don't know what you're doin'
    What you doin' to me
    Try to stop me, can't stop me
    Cos you know what I need
    You got me all open and now you tryin to leave
    Hold It, Don't Drop It (Don't Drop It)
    Stop it, (can't stop it, won't stop it)

    Every time I try to run, something keeps stopping me (stopping me)
    I try my best to turn around, but your touch won't let me leave
    I can't control it, you put something inside of me
    Cos you're a problem
    Boy you musta poisened me

    You don't know what you're doin'
    What you doin' to me
    Try to stop me, can't stop me
    Cos you know what I need
    You got me all open and now you tryin to leave
    Hold It, Don't Drop It
    Don't Drop It
    Stop it, can't stop it
    Won't stop it

    Oh I must be boppin'
    Let you play those things I don't understand
    I'll be the yoyo on a string
    Goin' down and comin' back to your hands
    I make excuses but we keep on rockin' anyway
    Ooh, boy it ain't workin'
    When I let you go, you make me stay

    You don't know what you're doin'
    What you doin' to me
    Try to stop me, can't stop me
    Cos you know what I need
    You got me all open and now you tryin to leave
    Hold It, Don't Drop It
    Don't Drop It
    Stop it, can't stop it
    Won't stop it

    (All right, believe) Yeaaah
    (Control) Control
    (Of me) Of me
    You got what
    (I need) I need, yaaay!
    (Don't drop it, don't drop it, can't stop me, can't stop me, won't stop me)
    Oh, Can't let you go
    Can't let you leave
    I need your love
    Inside of me
    You have control
    Control of me
    Hold it, don't drop it, don't drop it
    Stop me, can't stop me, won't stop me

    Welcome to the forums.

    A yoyo is a toy. It is a round object with a string around its middle; the string is wound round the object, which is then allowed to drop downwards. When is reaches the end of the string it rebounds so that the string winds up again.


    This link has many images of yoyos: yoyo - Google Image Search

    The song is saying that metaphorically "I" am held and am being played with like a yoyo - that "I" cannot escape, and that "you" control my actions.

    Re: What does this sentense mean?

    There are two uses for "pants" as garments = trousers [both male and female - AmE] or underpants [in the UK]

    "panties" are always understood to mean female underpants.
