"She ain't no ball and chain"

It's what it says in the lyrics in the cd booklet, and on the website, so it must be correct.

Hehe, indeed, and it's definitely not the first time I've heard that misheard lyric.

Despite that it's not what Dexter's saying, it's true though: Billie Jean is not my lover, she's just a girl who says I am the one--but the kid is not my son. So, she's obviously *not* a Billie Jean. :cool:

I always think of the Janis Joplin song. The lyrics are something like:

Sitting in the window looking out at the rain
The blues have gotta hold of me and it feels like a ball and chain

Maybe it's an Americanism, but a common pejorative term for one's wife is 'the old ball and chain.'

I don't know if it's an americanism or not, but I understood what Dexter meant with the "she ain't no ball and chain" part as soon as I read it! It makes perfect sense, actually... it means he's not "attached" to her all the time, I think, which means they have a healthy relationship, I think...

I thought it meant that she aint bringing him down all the time... like a heavy weight on his shoulders.

Still I think that we both in the same ballpark..

Yeah, definitely, good thinking, I guess you're right! "heavy weight on his shoulders", I liked that.

It's obvious.

And most of you aside from 1565 are pretty stupid.

In fact, I've always wondered. What does "she ain't no ball and chain" means?

Oh damn, where did I go wrong :rolleyes:

EDIT: By the way, this topic wasn't about what "she ain't no ball and chain" means; it was about a thread-starter which didn't know what dexter said in the beginning of the song, in case you haven't noticed... so please, try a little harder next time...

ball and chain

A burden and restraint, as in Karen regarded her job as a ball and chain, but she needed the money. The term, dating from the early 1800s, alludes to chaining a heavy iron ball to a prisoner's leg. Later it was transferred to other kinds of restraining burden.

Hell yeah...... Billie jean was rather funny.......

By the way, what's the meaning of "She ain't no ball and chain".

Is it something like the girl cannot be stuck with a single person?

=D

I think it has something to do with obsession. Like, she doesn't leave him alone, and follows every single step of her husband. I think that, if Dexter says "She ain't no ball and chain", it means that his wife is not at all like that, and gives him the freedom he needs. It should be an healthy relationship, definitely. Damn, it's so strange answering you in english. :eek:

the ball and chain is usally assiociated with prison so what hes saying is she doesnt stick like glue to him and doesnt hold him down.

for anyone who didn't know this, ball and chain is sort of slang for wife.

"she ain't no balll and chain" basically means that she isn't keeping him from having fun, basically.
