“Walk Away” Lyrics

"Walk Away" Lyrics

Okay, so on Top 40 radio there is a song called “Walk Away” by R&B/pop artist Paula DeAnda. Have you heard this song? Somebody has, because Billboard currently ranks it at #5 on its Hot 100 Airplay Chart. I’m all in favor of devoted relationships and a good & sturdy (unrequited) love song. But, check out a sample from the song’s lyrics:

Does she rub your feet (when you’ve had a long day)
Scratch your scalp (when you take out your braids)
Does she know that you (like to play PS2 till 6 in the morning like I do)

Maybe I’m hanging with a different crowd, but what adult woman coos, “Aw, honey, it’s so cute when you sit and play video games until dawn. Need a foot massage with that round of Grand Theft Auto?”
