Stuffy Old Songs About the Buttocks
"Some singers sing of ladies' eyes
And some of ladies' lips,
Refined ones praise their ladylike ways,
And coarse ones hymn their hips."
A variety of love song (or sincere lust song
) addressed to a specific part of someone's anatomy — their arse.
Generally, this will also involve the singer exhorting the buttocks possessor and the listeners to shake that plump bi-domed anatomical feature
, shake it good
Contrast with Intercourse with You
, where the song moves on from specific features to associated activities.
