I am here to correct the record. My song interpretation has been misconstrued and therefore can not be fully appreciated.
One must listen to the lyrics from the perspective of a horny teenaged boy (as I am apt to do). This is the sweet-talking plea of a boy who just wants to get some, but alas, he is stuck in the mid-century ethos of a society that bars pre-marital copulation and so what choice does he have?
Turn on the charm. Make it all about the kisses. “Yeah, yeah, baby, if we were older, I’d marry you, but I can’t so let’s just do it anyway.”
Really. Boy just wants to get his stick wet.
