    A Cherry bomb could be referring to a pipe, also called a bowl full of cannabis with hash on top. As you may know at a bar some folks prefer smoking cannabis in the parking lot rather than drinking at the club.

    What is he referring to my a "Cherry Bomb"? Did they play with firecrackers or was it a loud exhaust on his car? I don't get it but I love the song.
