"When I saw you standing there
I about fell out my chair
And when you moved your mouth to speak
I felt the blood go to my feet"
1. What does "feel the blood got to one's feet' mean? Is it common usage?
This expression is sort-of common usage in AmE....it means that you felt light-headed, or dizzy, or couldn't concentrate, because your entire blood supply left your head and upper body and pooled in your feet.
re: common use of 'blood going to one's feet':
I've heard of hearts standing still (or leaping, racing, pounding), jaws dropping, heads spinning, eyes popping, blood running cold, and more, but never of feeling one's blood go to the feet.
Of course, I don't get out much...
