Lyrics Talk:Sally Boy Candy Bar

From This Might Be A Wiki

I edited out one of the "It's making me mad" lines at the ending of the songs, for the simple fact that it isn't suppsed to be there. Second, (I wanted to check before I made the change) does it sound to any of you that he is saying "and it is making me mad" as opposed to "it's"? That's what it sounds like to me. --Propman 20:14, 26 October 2009 (UTC)

I'm consistently hearing "it's". ~ blitzente (talk) 20:24, 26 October 2009 (UTC)
Are you listning to all of the choruses, or just the first? Because in the second, to me it sound clearly like "it is". It sounds like that portion of the song has space for a two syllable word, and if it is "it's" the word would have to be stretched to fit if that makes sense. I have no idea if I'm correct, or hearing things. If I am wrong, I'm sorry for making a big deal out of it. --Propman 22:47, 26 October 2009 (UTC)
as a devout member of the Church of Sally Boy, i gave this a couple close listenthroughs. i definitely believe he uses the contraction. however, around 1:56 (timed from the start of the podcast version [which is higher quality than the TMBG Unlimited and Clock Radio versions]), it seems possible that flans says "it is". it seems unlikely though, that he would vary the lyric in just that one spot. of course, on the other hand, in 1983 they were young and new and wild... who knows. --ant 01:12, 27 October 2009 (UTC)
Fair enough. The lyric will remain unchanged unless my suspicion is proven correct. As of now though, I think I may just be hearing "I-t's" if that makes sense. --Propman 01:19, 27 October 2009 (UTC)
