The Song ‘If You Like Piña Coladas’ is Pretty Messed Up, Here’s Why
You know the song 'If You Like Pina Coladas?' I bet you never realized how messed up the lyrics are. Luckily for you, I had the time to dissect it.
First, please listen to the song and read its lyrics below:
A catchy and amazing song to sing especially when its last call at your favorite bar and you've already pounded way too many beers to count. But let's look a little deeper shall we?
The first verse, he's in bed with his wife speaking about how he's tired of her, 'like a worn-out recording of a favorite song.'
This is when he spots the personal column, looking to make 'love in the dunes at midnight.' LOL, ok little bold there, no? Let's keep going.
Within the second verse, he blatantly admits he doesn't think of his wife, and even worse doesn't give any f***s! 'I don't think about my lady, I know that sounds kinda mean.'
Now finally, he goes to meet the woman from the ad...basically CHEATING on his wife. Is this where Ashley Madison got the idea for their site??? I wonder.
Anyway, the woman from the ad just happens to be his own wife. So are we just going to ignore the fact that they BOTH were about to cheat, and are completely fine with this?
If I was his wife, I honestly would have gone crazy on him for answering the ad (completely disregarding that I was the one to initially place the ad).
Either way... I'll still be singing this song at the top of my lungs, after one too many.
