“Wannabe” by Spice Girls

If you wanna be my lover,
you have got to give.
Taking is too easy,
but that’s the way it is

Dear Girls of the Spice,
you may not be aware of this, but in common usage, the word ‘but’, when used as a conjunction, denotes a contradiction between the preceding and trailing clauses.

Or to put this another way, you’ve just told whatzisname what he must do to win your love… and immediately followed that by telling him it’s okay if he doesn’t do that, he still gets your love.

Girls – and especially you, Victoria – when they said “bend it like Beckham”, they didn’t mean the English language.
