Dirty Love

Give My Heart To You





This laid-back reggae song of Ross Campbell's 


contains a "dirty" lyric that he originally thought


would come across as an Edgy Witticism, but which he came to regret


as a clumsy case of Bad Judgement.

Here are the lyrics to the second verse:

"You were born in riches & I was born in rags
And up to now we've always been in completely different bags
But here is where the change comes, from now on we'll be thick
Give me just your smile, Girl, & I will give you dick.

It seems naive now, but Ross originally intended


"dick" to mean "nothing", as in "Dick All",


as in Sweet Dick All, a derivative of Sweet Fuck All,


which, as everybody knows, means



Unfortunately, many well-meaning persons have taken this intended


edgy witticism as a reference to the male member,


which suddenly plummets the song into the


realm of Gangsta Rap, not really Ross's thing.

We'll never know how many potential radio spins have


been denied Ross's CD  SUPERCIRCUITMAN  because of this


Dirty Ill-Considered Word.

Other than that, the song is quite a Sweet Love Song


with a couple of Occult References thrown in.

Anyway, that's our story ---is that Dirty enough for you?

(If not, check out the last verse of Metaphors, listed under Metaphoric Love)

also adds his distinctive masterful Guitar licks.

Ross plays Rhythm Guitar & sings the Lead Vocal,

Bill Mutual on Drums and Farley Scott on Bass


provide an animated Bottom End,


while Ken Hillaby has his wily way with his B-3 Organ,

providing a Deep Deep Groove for


Dancers who like Reggae.
