Do you know the meaning of "keep it in" in the lyrics below?
Thanks a lot.
"I'll push the wood
I'll blaze your fire
Then I'll satisfy your heart's desire...
Said I'll stir it, yeah, every minute, yeah
All you got to do is keep it in, baby."
The whole sequence of this Bob Marley song, beginning with "pushing his wood" - actually beginning before that, in "Come on and stir it up, little darling, stir it up, Come on baby come on and stir it up little darling, stir it up" - almost certainly has a sexual meaning, and relates to part of his anatomy, as no doubt does "Keep it in". I can elaborate if necessary.
There might be a non-sexual meaning as well, eg. they're cooking breakfast on a camp fire - an unlikely theme for a pop song.
