Lick It Like A Lollipop...

Have you heard the song "Candy Shop" by 50 Cent?

Well my 11 year old has... and now she is singing it!

I guess some of the boys in 6th grade have figured out that the song has some (how should I say) SEXUAL OVERTONES in it, and they have decided that the song is their new anthem.

Thankfully Momo has only caught on to the chorus.

Anyways... today, as we were finishing up a "wholesome" afterschool snack she looked me dead in the eye and sang:

"I'll take you to the candy shop, I'll let you lick the lollipop"

I looked back at her, probably with my mouth half open in a frozen state of shock/confusion, then she said:

"Oh my gosh mom...the boys are so gross...they keep singing this song and I just can't get it out of my head. Can you believe it means oral sex...uh...GROSS"

Then she rolls her eyes in disgust, puts her dish in the sink and climbs the stairs while humming the tune of Candy Shop... Now...I am sitting here wondering what I should say/do...

We have talked about music and appropriateness (in regards to sex, violence, cussing etc) in the past, but this seems like something different to me...Partly because Momo has expressed how overly sexualized the 6th grade boys (and many girls) are...

Honestly, even though Momo and I can talk about anything EVEN SEX, I'm a bit stumped with this one because I don't want to get to preachy with her...

Anyhow, I'd love to hear what you all think! Use the comment space to share your ideas!

By the way, if you are not familiar with the song...you have to read some of the lyrics:


I'll take you to the candy shop
I'll let you lick the lollypop
Go 'head girl, don't you stop
Keep going 'til you hit the spot (woah)

You can have it your way, how do you want it
You gon' back that thing up or should I push up on it
Temperature rising, okay lets go to the next level
Dance floor jam packed, hot as a teakettle
I'll break it down for you now, baby it's simple
If you be a nympho, I'll be a nympho
In the hotel or in the back of the rental
On the beach or in the park, it's whatever you into
Got the magic stick, I'm the love doctor
Have your friends teasin you 'bout how sprung I gotcha
Wanna show me how you work it baby, no problem
Get on top then get to bouncing round like a low rider
I'm a seasons vet when it come to this shit
After you work up a sweat you can play with the stick
I'm tryin to explain baby the best way I can
I melt in your mouth girl, not in your hands (ha ha)

Give it to me baby, nice and slow
Climb on top, ride like you in the rodeo
You ain't never heard a sound like this before
Cause I ain't never put it down like this
Soon as I come through the door she get to pullin on my zipper
It's like it's a race who can get undressed quicker
Isn't it ironic how erotic it is to watch em in thongs
Had me thinking 'bout that ass after I'm gone
I touch the right spot at the right time
Lights on or lights off, she like it from behind
So seductive, you should see the way she wind
Her hips in slow-mo on the floor when we grind
As Long as she ain't stoppin, homie I aint stoppin
Drippin wet with sweat man its on and popping
All my champagne campaign, bottle after bottle its on
And we gon' sip til every bubble in every bottle is gone


  1. Good gawd.

    How about talking with her about how it makes her say "gross" and that is the signal to her that it isn't something she is ready for. (as compared with one day when she is really in love, how things might be different) I think it is never too early for girls/kids to understand that if it doesn't "feel" right, it isn't, no matter what someone else says.

    I'm so glad I grew up when I did, that my kids were young at a different time.

  2. I agree with Lynilu!
    But now for the "important" part of my comment
    YES I am R-O-X-A-N-E :) I can't believe there are 2 of us. My parents were feeling creative, what's yours' excuse?! I noticed that you are also a teacher, I'm currently in school for early childhood education (the similarities!). Now, I shall stalk you...umm I mean "follow" you :)

  4. i don't feel i can give advice since i have no kids... but i surely can laugh! sorry... couldn't help it- but i am totally with what lynilu said!

  5. For sale:

    All radios, stereos, MP3s and Ipods in this house! Everything must go before my 10 year old starts singing "lick it like a lollipop."

  6. It's shocking what the radios will play these days, isn't it? I don't even know what to say. I'm floored.

  7. I'm floored too! I have 5 grown kids and never heard anything like that in my life. Different times I guess, and I'm so glad those days are over for me. Is this song (garbage) actually being played on the radio?) Shame on those who allow it!

  8. Thanks for all the comments and I should mention that this song IS PLAYED ON THE RADIO!!! Honestly, I am a huge proponent of free speech, but I think this is crossing the line of what should be on the radio...

  9. i hate this song. and also that "my milkshake" song! grr!

  14. I do not leave many comments, however I browsed a few of the responses here "Lick It Like A Lollipop...".
    I do have 2 questions for you if you do not mind. Is it simply me or does it appear like a few of
    these remarks come across like they are written by brain dead folks?
    :-P And, if you are posting on additional online social sites, I'd like to keep up with everything fresh you have to post. Could you make a list of the complete urls of all your social sites like your linkedin profile, Facebook page or twitter feed?
