    Default idiomatic expressions

    Hello,
    Michael Jackson starts his famous hit "Bad" by saying "your butt is mine".
    The same expression was used by Robbie Williams during a concert while addressing to his public.
    What does it actually mean?
    Thank you
    Ripley

    in Michael Jackson's case..."your butt is mine", I read it as "I will kick your butt", this is going to be a one way method of dealing with things and it will happen by kicking someone's butt. In other words: "let's step outside and talk about it"... ( rolling up his sleeves at the same time).

    In Robbie Williams' case, I read it as "You are all mine now, I will rock this place big time! you will have a blast thanks to me!".
