Interpretations:Swing Is A Word
Dead and buried?
- ^ Obviously. Nobody can snap his fingers, an important possession has been thrown away, an the song has a general air of despair. A. Gravestone, 19XX-20XX 13:23, May 16, 2006
Anyone have an idea as to the meaning of the titular phrase? The rest of the song obviously deals with death, as noted above, but the statement "swing is a word" has me stumped. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 22.214.171.124 (talk) 21:14, November 6, 2007
- Well, I tried looking at the history of the word swing like one of those people who make ridiculously indepth interpretations, and all I came up with was that it came from an old English word that meant to beat, so that's something. Definitely not what They was thinking though. --DoubleDenial (talk) 16:38, 29 September 2018 (EDT)
