The Story: Don't eat the fruit in the garden, Eden,, It wasn't in God's natural plan., You were only a rib,, And look at what you did,, To Adam, the father of Man.
The Story: You smell like goat, I'll see you in hell
The Story: All the b***h had said, all been washed in black
I'm actually still not 100% sure I'm wrong (but I
began to question whether I was hearing it right
very early on; this isn't a case of "gotcha!").
The lyrics sites on the Web give different
translations for the "poppin'" line, so I **sume
it's not a settled matter. Nevertheless, there's
good reason to think that my version is off-base:
"Papa" fits perfectly with the "mami" (mommy,
mama) in the preceding phrase; it's only when you
consider how (on the one hand) hilarious it is,
and (on the other) degrading and insulting to
black folks it is, that you begin to suspect that
"uh-ohhhhh, where's papa tonight" is probably not
what Nelly had in mind.

Age it happened
Better than original?
Convinced others you were right?
Was partying involved?
