The seminal track from 2 Live Crew's 1989 album, As Nasty As They Wanna Be. I was twelve years old and took the schoolbus to and from school. My best friend and I would listen to this song every day, on my walkman, during the long ride. We had the entire song memorized, still to this day. Neither of us were aware of the origins of the sample, at least for another year. That was also indicative of our understanding of the lyrical content. What really appealed to us was the beat and syntax of the rhymes. The booming 808 didn't come out too clearly on our crappy headphones, but we could tell it was there, and the neo-disco wah-wahs kept a rhythm that made our heads bop. That's all that really mattered to us. To many in society, however, the lyrics mattered so much that 2 Live Crew released a "clean" version of their album, As Clean As They Wanna Be, where the word "sex" was replaced with "love," among other changes (the samples remained intact, though). In 1994, 2 Live Crew would go on to defend First Amendment rights (sort of) through the copyright lawsuit that went to the Supreme Court.

But back to the song. The samples are taken from the Kubrick film Full Metal Jacket, scene 16, Vietnam (These Boots Were Made For Walkin'), if you have the DVD. A prostitute struts up to Joker and proceeds to negotiate with him. You can hear the beat from the Nancy Sinatra song indirectly sampled as well.

The popularity of the song gave rise to other groups such as the Geto Boys, and opened the doorway for acceptance (somewhat) of similar misogynistic lyrics in gangsta rap. It should be noted that 2 Live Crew and their producer, Luke (Skywalker at the time), are not themselves categorized as gangsta.

Me So Horny

<sample>
Joker: What'll we get for ten dollars?
Prostitute: Every'ting you want.
Joker: Everything?
Prostitute: Every'ting!

Ooh! Oh, sock it to me! Ooooh!
</sample>

Chorus x2:
Oh, so horny,
oh oh, so, so horny
oh, so horny,
Me love you long time!

Brother Marquis:
Sittin' at home with my dick on hard
So I got the black book for a freak to call
Picked up the telephone, then dialed the seven digits
said, "Yo, this Marquis, baby! Are you down with it?"
I arrived at her house, knocked on the door
not having no idea of what the night had in store
I'm like a dog in heat, a freak without warning
I have an appetite for sex, 'cause me so horny

Chorus x2

Fresh Kid Ice:
Girls always ask me why I fuck so much
I say "What's wrong, baby doll, with a quick nut?"
'cause you're the one, and you shouldn't be mad
I won't tell your mama if you don't tell your dad
I know he'll be disgusted when he sees your pussy busted
won't your mama be so mad if she knew I got that ass?
I'm a freak in heat, a dog without warning
My appetite is sex, 'cause me so horny

Chorus x2

Brother Marquis:
You can say I'm desperate, even call me perverted
but you say I'm a dog when I leave you fucked and deserted
I'll play with your heart just like it's a game
I'll be blowing your mind while you're blowing my brain
I'm just like that man they call Georgie Puddin' Pie
I fuck all the girls and I make 'em cry
I'm like a dog in heat, a freak without warning
I have an appetite for sex, 'cause me so horny.

Chorus x2
Break using sample

Fresh Kid Ice:
It's true, you were a virgin until you met me
I was the first to make you hot and wetty-wetty
You tellin' your parents that we're goin' out
never to the movies, just straight to my house
You said it yourself, you like it like I do
Put your lips on my dick, and suck my asshole too
I'm a freak in heat, a dog without warning
My appetite is sex, 'cause me so horny

Chorus x2 <sample>
Fucky sucky. Suck suck sucky
Me fucky sucky, suck suck suck sucky
Me so horny
Me love you long time!
