WHY MANEATER???

**Turn the volume on your computer up for this one!!

Nobody really knows why but our boys love Maneater by Hall & Oates. They ask to listen to it nearly every time we get into the car. It is somewhat of a mystery to them still though.
  • Isaac: "Mom, why is the girl such a mad eater?"
I told Isaac that the song was called MAN eater (this didn't seem to help lower his level of curiosity) and that it was all just a figure of speech. Note some of the lyrics:

She'll only come out at night
The mean and hungry type
The woman is wild
She'll rip your world apart
Watch out boy she'll chew you up

A few days later I heard this conversation from the back of the van:
  • Theron: "Why is she a maneater?"
  • Isaac: "She's not a maneater. It's just a figure of speech."
  • Theron: "It's not a figure of speech, Isaac."
  • Isaac: "It's a figure of speech!"
  • Theron: "IT'S NOT A FIGURE OF SPEECH!"

This was one of the first songs I can remember along with "We gonna rock down to electric avenue". and that one synthesizer song with no lyrics. Lucky for you they didn't keep asking more questions about the maneater woman;)
By the way, it was really good to talk to you on the phone. We shoudl do that more often.
