Kid Singing About Banging a Woman?

Okay, so a few minutes ago, I went downstairs to check my mailbox. I live in a high rise apartment so I take the elevator down. Since it's morning and this is usually the time for kids to set out to school, I would usually get to ride the elevator with a kid or two. Nothing out of the ordinary...BUT... As I was minding my own business, this young boy, I reckon he was about 8, got on the elevator as I was riding down to the ground floor...and...to my amazement, this little kid was singing. Okay, he was singing softly but loud enough for me to hear since it was just the two of us in the elevator. It wasn't the singing that got me. It was the SONG and lyrics. That little kid was singing Akon's song "I wanna love you" and he was singing the chorus at that, which goes... I see you windin' and grindin' up on the floor I know you see me lookin' at you and you already know I wanna F--- you You already know I wanna F--- you I would hear this song in the clubs sometimes so I'm familiar with it. My jaw just dropped. I turned around and looked at him in bewilderment and just as I was going to say something, we reached the ground floor and he dashed out. I got out of the elevator to get my mail and felt dumbfounded because I kept thinking: "what in the world is happening?!?"

I don't think it is because it goes to show that kids these days are getting exposed to a lot of things that the media promotes.

The media doesn't expose anyone to this stuff. The media plays a clean version that says "I wanna love you". Blame the kids parents. Its an extremely bad song anyways. Akon should die.

Maybe you take my words too serious. I know what the kid said and did was totally wrong,you think me as if i was somewhat support the kid's behavor. That's not cool ,really not cool. i don't know what's your opinion about this stuff and i don't care neither. All my words is just want a stranger on the internet don't feel too sorry about the sad things happened in her daily life. Maybe my english is not that good and misled you.

I really thought the lyrics were 'i wanna love you, love you' not the f word. Wow I wouold have never thought a 8 year old would utter the f bomb in front of an adult, especially a women.

First time I heard it was on MTV so the lyrics were "love" instead of the F word. Then, when I heard it in the club, I was thinking..."What?!?"

Yeah it was the clean version. I didn't know of the other version until I heard it. Shocker to me, too.

rg0205, So a kid of 8 years old, attending his primary education and barely able to make any decision on his own - could actually be able to lay his hands on such a questionable song ON HIS OWN. I am just amazed how he could actually be in possession of such a song without the knowledge of his parents. I am sorry but I find this either a little exaggerated on your part or a misjudgment of the child's age. He could be a midget adult dwarf, unbeknown to you. What is happening to this world? Well, as long as there is a market and demand for such artistes like Akon, then I am sure we are all going to have more of these songs being aired and sold. Care to stop the artistes and recording companies?

Unbelievable, right? Nobody seems to care anymore. Here in the Philippines (especially in the slums), that sort of thing is fast becoming a norm. At an early age of 4 they can even hurl curses at other kids (sometimes even at their own parents). Yesterday I heard kid with about the same age singing some local rap song titled "chupain moko" (that's "s*ck my d*ck" in english). His parents were right there and they could care less. All I can do is shake my head. Goes to show how rotten society has gotten. To even allow such kinds of songs to be aired on radios or distributed through music stores is beyond me. Really, what the heck is happening to the world?

When I was in Manila last year, there were some kids pushing eachother at the pedestrian crossing. Well, it wasn't exactly on the pedestrian crossing. It was probably 10 ft away from where you're supposed to cross. Well, the kids, who were obviously begging for money started pushing eachother. One kid pushed the other into the street with oncoming traffic and he was almost hit. What did he say back? "Put*ng ina mo" and he looked to be just 6 years old. Now...I'm not trying to single out one country. I think the problem exists everywhere else in the world. So, yeah, it is beyond me as well. It baffles me, really because it does make me wonder whether the parents of the child is aware or if they're even doing something to teach the child better.

Yeah, and it's so sad. I can't talk about any other place because I haven't been out of the Philippines for too long to experience anything like that in other places. I am really disturbed on how things are shaping up. The times are crazy. What do we expect to see next?

Its a sad truth man..At our times, we sang "Bla bla black sheep" and "Mary had a little lamp" when we were kids..But today's kids are getting exposed to many coarse slang and media through different media..They will get influenced to it very faster... The child u mentioned may be fond of the music or tone but may not with the lyrics..If he really mean the lyrics then it is very sad man...Atleast his parents could've correct him..

LOL, yeah I know what you mean. At 8, I was still watching sesame street and cartoons, singing nursery songs and all that. Now, it's so different. I think the child is probably fond of music but still is alarming to hear him singing that song at a young age. Maybe his parents don't know about it? Who knows. I just think it shows how accessible that type of media is to kids.

You should think it in this way:maybe this kind of kids only is a minority ,maybe this kid's parents fail to teach him the right thing,maybe the kid doesn't understand the meanning of the words,maybe...Things are not always that perfect,you know that. So I just give you an attitude ,don't take it too serious, I saw sth much worse than that!

When did I say that the majority of kids are like this? I am not ruling out that the kid doesnt know the meaning or his parents failed to teach him well if you read my earlier posts. Obviously you did not. Don't take it too serious? Is there something wrong with starting this discussion? I don't think so. Does it count as taking things to serious to the point where I am incapacitated? No, I dont think so. Have I seen worse? Yes. Again, this is just a point of discussion.

I have no idea about Akon's song because I am not a fan of him but to think about a kid singing that nasty lyrics of a song? I don't know if the kid knows the meaning of what he was singing? The parents are responsible of how their kids are.. but seems they don't care anymore if their kids are listening bad stuff and or doing bad things they don't care. We could just imagine what kind of kids we are producing in this generation and to think of it... what kind of community we will be having in the future when these kids will grow up in this exposure?

I'm not a fan of Akon either. His voice is annoying and I guess that's the reason why I ironically remember his music. It's because of his distinct and squeaky voice. I think parents should watch out for what their kids are listening to or watching on tv. It's just insane that a child that young would be saying such things.

LoL, Nice stroy. Yeah, I'm not sure how quick kids these days learn the F word but I'm sure I learnt that since grade 5, though I didn't have the slightest chance of knowing what it actually meant until I was in grade six though. But nowadays, with the internet becoming so popular, it's easy for the kids to access bad things from the net so they tend to do badder things.

rg0205, I guess i could understand your concern... it's really weird a 8 year old kid singing such a song... i agree (to one of the comments), his parents must be more careful about the kid... but, i think, the kid might not really understand what he is singing... he might have heard the song somewhere, and may be the melody of the song attracted him that made him memorize it... I also think, if he would really understand the meaning, he probably wouldn't sing it in front of you... he might have started knowing things, but, he is actually too kid to understand the nature of it and that he needs to be careful uttering such words... no way, I think, it was directed towards you... at worst, even if he already understands the thing, he probably sang it subconsciously... it is better to look at the psychological part of it, rather than how it looks outwardly... i will rather suggest that you should talk to the parents of the kid, so that they can take care of it, for the betterment of the little boy...

I dont know the kid's parents so I can't have a word with them regarding this matter. Whether or not the kid knows the meaning of it is, to me, beside the point because he shouldn't be saying things at such a young age. Thanks for commenting.

Really, what in the world is happening for an 8 year old to sing this kind of song, God alone knows where he heard it from. If you happen to know his parents, tell them to watch what thier little kid listens to and the kind of people he hangs around with, hopefully something can be done to help this child

I don't know the parents of the boy but hopefully his parents would take note if they ever heard him singing that song in their presence.

That is sad. And what's even more sad is that I'm hearing about this kind of thing more often now of days. Kids seem to have access to things that they shouldn't, via the internet and television. I believe parents [while it's not necissarily their fault] should be more watchful over how much and what their kids are accessing.

Incredible!!! I am not for censoring music but hearing this story makes me wonder. I remember singing lyrics when I was young about "going all the way", etc. I really didn't know what I was talking about. We just didn't have songs with crude lyrics like that. I hope that child doesn't know what he was saying but something tells me he knows - YIKES!!!

I am for freedom of expression but this is just one of those instances where you have to put your foot down. I don't think the kid knew what it meant but nonetheless, I think someone should be watching what he's listening to or watching.

hi rg wow that is pretty gross for a kid about 8. that made me wonder what kind of parents he had that would let him sing a song with such lyrics? they would have to be doing the same thing, playing music with disgusting lyrics for the kid to hear. after all kids absorb what their parents and older siblings do and then regurgitate it out in public. I will bet the kid did not even know for sure what all the lyrics meant or yet, maybe he did. no wonder our kids are growing up sooner,us adults probably have hand in that too.

I agree with you. It is really gross. I think the shock of it got to me. My cousin lets her kids listen to profanity laden songs and her excuse is, well, they don't understand what it means anyway so there's no harm. She even remarked: "They don't know it's bad and they don't say those things like they mean it." - but isn't that why you should teach them it's not a nice thing to say? (Profanity) I think people should be more mindful about what kids listen to and watch these days. It's just crazy.

This is a sign of the times.. parents who take no interest in their kids behaviour, & dont take a positive role in their upbringing. An 8 year old child may not have known exactly what he was sining about, but the point is, he shouldnt be hearing that kind of music where he can copy from anyway.
