I am brazillian, and I looove english, and lately Iīve been in love with Dave Matthews Band too!! LOL, and there are some things in his songs, that might be slang, like "Jimmi thing" or "Dancing Nancie"...I would like to know the meaning, if you could help me....since my name is Nancy! LOL!
Thank you so very much!
Nancy Dresch from Brazil.
Don't know about Jimmi thing, but I googled "Dancing Nancy" and discovered that it means a transvestite prostitute. "Nancy" or "Nancy-boy" is a perjorative term for a gay man. But don't worry, the name is still very common in ordinary usage - no one is going to titter when you tell them your name.
