Give It Away Lyrics

Play "Give It Away"
on Amazon Music

What I've got you've got to give it to your mamma

What I've got you've got to give it to your pappa

What I've got you've got to give it to your daughter

You do a little dance and then you drink a little water

What I've got you've got...

    It's about the sex.

    I thought it was about oral sex, among other things.

    The song has two major intentions: First, to talk about the excesses of mankind. Their video is a visual representation of lust and greed. Their bodies are painted gold to symbolize material wealth whilst their movements and vulgar camera angles are meant to demonstrate how mankind so readily objectifies, sexualizes, and perverts the beauty of the human body.
    To "give it away," in this sense, means to free yourself of the evils of greed by giving away material wealth.

    Secondly, and most importantly, this song and the accompanying video send a message about giving not only material wealth away, but, as another poster has already mentioned, but rather love. Love is what one should ultimately give away freely.

    Give it away is to give away your virginity

    This interpretation has been marked as poor. view anyway

    The more you give, the more you receive, so why not give it all away?
