i used to think this song was a huge turn off, completely un called for and the only bad song on ixnay untill yesterday. i was mowing the grass while listening to ixnay, and i was thinking about how great ixnay on the hombre was with the theme of: i'll do what i want and i'll do what i feel like (which reminds me, it's kinda like smash leads into ixnay....+ there is also the change the world thing....clever offspring, clever), anyway, i started to listen to me and my old lady with more of an open mind. when i was listening to the lyrics, where the part says: so go on and stare, because we don't care, it clicked. the song really fits into ixnay. those lyrics told me that he's gonna express his love in his most comfortable and pleasing way even in public, where it is illeagal. the song may be vile but (yes, i may have gone insane) the song is meaningful. well that was my offspring education for the weekend. add a comment about this one, or if you want, you can add a new offspring opinion of yours.

Awhile ago I found a new-found respect for "The Meaning of Life" after reading up on the lyrics... Awesome song, can't wait to make a video to it.

Speaking of the whole "Change The World" prelude at the end of Smash... Anyone else notice that they have a "Pay The Man" prelude at the very end of Smash? That little melody that starts at 9:08 during the song "Smash." Pay The Man's beginning has a small part that sounds like that melody at the end of Smash.

...Took me long enough to figure that out though.

Me & My Old Lady is an old song from the 80's that the band hadn't quite finished.. I don't really like it, actually.

When I first heard Me And My Old Lady I didn't like it but when I'd listened to it a few more times I decided that it is a really good song.

That's Come Out and Play, not Pay The Man

I joined this forum because of this song. And I'm sure there's noone who loves this song as much as me. Lyrics, melody, vocals... All of them are perfect. Don't need to say more.

It's called middle eastern sound, you idiot. Arabian music sounds more different.

Me And My Old Lady has a really great sound and tune. The marakas make the song. A sort of different style for The Offspring, a bloody awesome song.

I really like me and my old lady.

and that thing at the end of smash is not come out and play OR pay the man. it's soem goofing around, where they took the riff from COAP and meshed it with that middle eastern sound... then they took the sound of that and incorporated it into pay the man.

Are you really serious?

Most definitely.

Mr. Noodles

Most definitely.
My parody would make that worse.... maybe.
Would you like me to send it (as much as I can remember) to you by private message?

If you want to know the rest, just contact I Don't Know.
I sent her the lyrics of the parody before anyone else.

Hah, your parody has made the song less hornyrific for me. BUT, it was entertaining.

But the chorus is about seeing a teenage girl naked and her not caring!
BTW, talking about horny and hornyrific stuff is something my friend does, when he's bored.

Me and My Old Lady is is terrific song. It is so much different than anything else they have done. Then again, I have this guilty pleasure of dark, sick songs... and this one fits this category quite well.

You and Mr. Noodles both need to die.

And I can't believe anyone thought this song was about him and his mom...I mean, simply reading the lyrics would prove otherwise in a matter of seconds...

More or less what I was thinking. Then again, I do tend to go overboard (http://www.offspring.com/forums/showthread.php?t=22106) with this album...

it's not dark. it's very light, "me and my girl don't care what you think!" that's not dark... or sick...
and must you continue to always post the link to that one thread? :-/

It's extremely dark if you look beyond the lyrics and pay attention to the atmosphere created by the instruments.

the music is in a minor key, if that's what you mean.

*Groans and sighs*

I said the VERY beginning of that little meddly at the end of Smash sounds the same as the beginning of Pay The Man. Listen to each song during their respective times that I have listed below.

Song: Minutes:Seconds
Smash: 9:08 - 9:23
Pay The Man: 0:26 - 0:42

I know that the meddly at the end of Smash is Come out and Play in a "Middle Eastern" style of music. But for those 15 seconds of each song, they sound similar, strikingly so.

the song was originaly gonna be called 'Rons Grandma' :D ..if somebody didn't already post that?

Imagine if they called it 'Rons Grandma' and now he's left the band...that's funny :p

One would have to wonder at the relationships they had with their mothers to interpret the song thus.
