Song of the Day #2,275: ‘Don’t Tell ‘Em’ – Jeremih Featuring YG

jeremihIn Billboard’s seventh spot this week is Jeremih with ‘Don’t Tell ‘Em,’ a song as stupid as the spelling of his first name.

The girl power wave that put women in the top six Billboard spots hits a wall with this lazy R&B jam that celebrates women as mindless sex objects.

Songs like this make me sympathize with Tipper Gore and Bill O’Reilly. Does Tipper Gore still care about offensive song lyrics?

That this song exists is bad enough, but how has it been on the charts for 15 weeks, and steadily ascending at that? Who is the audience for this drivel?

It’s official. I’ve become my parents.

[Intro: YG]
Mustard on the beat, ho

[Hook: Jeremih]
Rhythm is a dancer, I need a companion
Girl I guess that must be you
Body like the summer, fuck you like no other
Don’t you tell ’em what we do
Don’t tell ’em, don’t tell ’em, you ain’t even
Don’t tell ’em, don’t tell ’em
You ain’t even, you ain’t even gotta tell ’em
Don’t tell ’em, don’t tell ’em
You ain’t even, don’t tell ’em, don’t tell ’em
You ain’t even, you ain’t even even gotta tell ’em
Don’t tell ’em, don’t tell ’em

[Verse 1: Jeremih]
Know you say you down with it
Won’t tell em how you hit the ground with it
Girl you know I’m from Chicago, I act a fool, Bobby Brown with it (in it)
Nobody take me out tho
You got gifts bring em down the south pole
Marathon doll gon’ puttin’ miles
Don’t you worry bout it might gon’ work it out
Only is you got me feeling like this oohh why, why, why, why
Loving while grabbing the rhythm of your hips
That’s right, right, right, right, right

[Hook: Jeremih]

[Verse 2: Jeremih]
Girl, he fufu with it
But you know I know what to do with it
I’ll give you that, girl, I’m talking laps
As if you got a pool in it
And she say she ain’t with your best friends
Then let me be your down man
You know you feeling how your boy press play
Just keep that ass rewindin’
Only with you got it feel like this
Ooh why, why, why, why, why
Loving while grabbing the rhythm your hips
That’s right, right, right, right, right

[Hook: Jeremih]

[Verse 3: YG]
Throw it up 9-3-4, 8-6-1-6
I gotta missed call from your bitch
She been plottin on me for a cool minute
She wanna’ suck my dick, and I’m cool with it
I like girls in the shower, when its winter fresh
It’s that Twitter pussy I met on the Internet
On my late-night thirsty, ‘cause it was late-night and I was thirsty
Girl, I been to that county girl, I ain’t tellin
Handcuff me to the bed, girl it ain’t no bailin
I keep a stack of hundreds like I keep a secret
If anything you were just exploring, you wasn’t cheating
She got my number stored under fake names
Her nigga think she faithful, but she runnin game
YOLO, so take me out these Polos
And we can fuck from Uno to Ocho

[Bridge: Jeremih]
Only you got me feeling like this
Oh why, why, why
Loving and grabbing the rhythm of the hips

[Hook: Jeremih]

    In your defense, I doubt you would have appreciated this song when you were 17. You’re not getting old; you’ve just always had good taste.
