    Help with song lyrics

    "Hey Bobby, don't you want me?
    I told you I was horny
    On the beach with my steez
    But he's too stoned to please
    It's getting cold, Sal let's go
    Roll onto that party
    Let's leave Bobby
    We'll probably have more fun without our shorties"
    Cassie Steele - Summer Nights

    I can't make sense of it.

    Re: Help with song lyrics

    Even with the "definition" from the Urban Dictionary, I'm none the wiser, I'm afraid. I can't even guess what it's supposed to mean.

    Re: Help with song lyrics

    I can make sense of it using the second definition at Urban Dictionary, "somebody's unique style". On the beach with my unique style suggests "hanging out, in the cool way that I alone have, on the beach."

    Oops, I didn't scroll down far enough to even see definition 2.

    Re: Help with song lyrics

    I think the third definition of a portmanteau of 'style' and 'ease' seems the most likely.

    I'd guess that she is looking good and sexy on the beach, but even that is not enough for her boyfriend because he's so stoned.

    Re: Help with song lyrics

    Thank you!
    And while we are at it, there is another part I'm unsure of.

    "Roll onto the party
    Grab a forty before we dance up on that shorty"

    I think I get his, they're going to dance around an attractive girl.

    But later:
    "Let's leave Bobby
    We'll probably have more fun without our shorties"

    This confuses me, why would they have more fun without the shorties, maybe I misunderstood what it means.

    Re: Help with song lyrics

    A forty is a forty-ounce bottle of drink. I think she means without their shorts/underwear (have sex) in the second, but I am middle-aged and have no certainty here.

    Urban dictionary says that "shorty" is a young attractive female.
