break/doWn
translating the hits for the masses
by: the munk

Ahhh Nelly... a man who's music is truly horrible, yet somehow remains stuck in our heads for days after we hear it. His latest single, "Hot In Herre" is every bit as grating as his other efforts, but we still can't help but sing along. It's kind of like that movie Lake Placid (the one with the big crocodile in Maine that eats a bear, cow, and helicopter - amongst other things.) ... It's so bad you can't help but love it.

Original Lyrics broken/doWn

Hot in.....
So hot in herre.....
So hot in.....

It's quite warm...
It's quite warm in here -
quite warm, indeed

[Nelly]
I was like, good gracious ass bodacious
Flirtacious, tryin to show patience
Lookin for the right time to shoot my steam (you know).
Lookin' for the right time to flash them keys
Then um I'm leavin, please believin'
Me and the rest of my heathens
Check it, got it locked at the top of the four seasons
Penthouse, roof top, birds I feedin'
No deceivin, nothin up my sleeve, no teasin'
I need you to get up up on the dance floor
Give that man what he askin for
Cuz I feel like bustin' loose and I feel like touchin you
And can't nobody stop the juice so baby tell me -
Wha'ts the use?

[Nelly]
I thought to myself, "Well I'll be darned, that's one heck of a butt."
I was trying to flirt with the woman that owned that most glorious of tushies,
And I was trying to show her that I am a man with money.
After my encounter with her, I decided to leave
My friends and I
Went to the local Four Seasons hotel.
We had rented the penthouse and were spending some time on the roof.
You might think to yourself that I am trying to deceive you, but I am not.
I would like you to get on the dance floor.
You should comply with my requests
Because I feel as though I would like to get crazy and make physical contact with you.
And once I get going, there's nothing that can stop me.

 

[Hook x2]
(I said)
It's gettin hot in here (so hot)
So take off all your clothes

I am gettin so hot, I wanna take my clothes off

[Hook x2]
The temperature in here is beginning to rise
so you should remove your clothing.

Anyway, I'm warm so I'm going to get naked.

[Nelly]
Why you at the bar if you aint poppin' the bottles
What good is all the fame if you aint fuckin' the models?
I see you drivin', sportscar, ain't hittin' the throttle
And I be down, and do a hundred, top down and goggles
Get off the freeway, exit 106 and parked it
Ash tray, flip gate, time to spark it
Gucci collar for dollar, got out and walked it
I spit game cuz baby I cant talk it
Warm, sweatin' its hot up in this joint
VOKAL tanktop, on at this point
You're with a winner so baby you can't lose
I got secrets can't leave Cancun
So take it off like your home alone
You know dance in front your mirror while your on the phone
Checkin' your reflection and tellin your best friend,
like "girl I think my butt gettin' big"

[Hook 2x]

[Nelly]
Why would anyone be at a tavern if you aren't going to drink alcohol?
Why would anyone who is a celebrity not take advantage of his stature and not have sexual relations with super models?
Why have an exotic vehicle if you aren't going to drive recklessly?
When I drive sports cars I am sure to drive at accelerated speeds with the convertible top down.
I depart the interstate at Exit 106 and park my car
(Translate this yourself - I have no clue what he's saying).
(Translate this line too - Nelly's still not making much sense).
I talk about myself and brag because everything I say is true.
It is incredibly warm in this location.
You have your name-brand tank top on right now.
When you are in my company, nothing can go wrong.
I have secrets that cannot be left behind in Mexico
Remove your clothing with the comfort and ease that you have when you are getting naked at home.
Feel free to dance about as if you were alone
And look into the reflection in the mirror and criticize your figure.
Mention to you closest ally that you feel as though you have a big ass.

[Hook x2]

 

[Pseudo-Sexual Hook]
(Nelly hang all out)
Mix a little bit a ah, ah
With a little bit a ah, ah
(Nelly just fall out)
Give a little bit a ah, ah
With a little bit a ah, ah
(Nelly hang all out)
With a little bit a ah, ah
And a sprinkle a that ah, ah
(Nelly just fall out)
I like it when ya ah, ah
Girl, Baby make it ah, ah

[Chorus 2x]

[Pseudo-Sexual Hook]

And sprinkle of that ….
Nelly just fall out
I like it when you ….
Girl, baby make it ….

[Chorus 2x]

[Nelly]
Stop placin', time wastin'
I gotta a friend with a pole in the basement (What?)
I'm just kiddin' like Jason (Oh)
Unless you gon' do it
Extra, extra eh, spread the news
Nelly took a trip from the Luna to Neptunes
Came back with somethin thicker than fittin' in sasoons
Say she like to think about cuttin' in restrooms.

[Hook x4]

[Nelly]
Quit hesitating because time is of the essence.
I have an acquaintance with a go-go dancer pole in his basement, if you'd like to use it.
That was my attempt at humor (oh, I see)
Or I could be serious if you are willing to go through with it.
Be sure to tell everyone
I've switched producers to the Neptunes
And I arrived with something more robust than trying to squeeze into a small pair of designer jeans from the late 1980's.
My lady friend says that she enjoys thinking about having sexual intercourse in public bathrooms.
