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.
