Cinnamon Queen? [Copy link] 中文

Rank: 4

在Craig David的7 Days歌词中,有Cinnamon Queen这个短语,不清楚什么意思。查了字典,发现cinnamon是肉桂。网上很多人说Cinnamon Queen是指歌词中女郎的发色、肤色等,不过从逻辑上来看似乎不太恰当。也有人说只是为了押韵,没有实际意义。我觉得这种说法比较无聊。后来我在网上查到,Cinnamon Queen是一种母鸡品种,羽毛比较黄,可能就是所谓的肉桂色吧。而queen就是hen。因此我想,歌词中的Cinnamon Queen是不是就是“鸡”?和中文中的“鸡”一样,指prostitutes?如果是这样的话,从上下文来看是非常的符合。只是不知道,什么时候美国人也开始用“鸡”来指代prostitutes了?或者是一直就有这种用法,只是我孤陋寡闻而已?请达人赐教。

后附Seven Days的歌词:

7days - craig david



(you know what, what, what, got something to say, yeah)
(craig david, seven days, check it out, yeah)

on my way to see my friends
who lived a couple blocks away from me (ow)
as i walked through the subway
it must have been about a quarter past three
in front of me stood a beautiful honey
with a beautiful body (body)
she asked me for the time i said it'd cost her, her name
a six-digit number and a date with me tomorrow at nine

did she decline? no
didn't she mind? i don't think so
was it for real? damn sure
what was the deal? a pretty girl aged 24
so was she keen? she couldn't wait
cinnamon queen? well, let me update
what did she say? she said she'd love to rendezvous
she asked me what we were gonna do
said we'd start with a bottle of moet for two

monday, took her for a drink on tuesday
we were making love by wednesday
and on thursday and friday and saturday
we chilled on sunday
i met this girl on monday
took her for a drink on tuesday
we were making love by wednesday
and on thursday and friday and saturday
we chilled on sunday

nine was the time, cos i'll be getting mine
and she was looking fine
smooth talker, she told me
she'd love to unfold me all night long
ooh, i loved the way she kicked it
from the front to the back she flipped it
(back she flipped it, ooh, the way she kicked it)
and i, oh, i, yeah
hope that she'd care
cos i'm a man who'll always be there (ooh, yeah)
i'm not a man to play around, baby (ooh, yeah)
cos a one-night stand isn't really fair
from the first impression, girl
hmmm, you don't seem to be like that
cos there's no need to chat
for there'll be plenty time for that
from the subway to my home
endless ringing of my phone
when you're feeling all alone
all you gotta do is just call me, call me

monday, took her for a drink on tuesday
we were making love by wednesday
and on thursday and friday and saturday
we chilled on sunday
i met this girl on monday
took her for a drink on tuesday
we were making love by wednesday
and on thursday and friday and saturday
we chilled on sunday

(break it down, break it down)
since i met

cinnamon: light reddish brown 这种颜色很漂亮健康。
拉丁美洲,特别是加勒比海群岛的人具有这种肤色,另外黑人与其他人种的混血也常会具有这种肤色

queen: a woman considered the best or most important of her  kind, 超群的美女

queen: a woman considered the best or most important  ...

thanx for the reply, but that's not what i need.

我想说的是,从歌词上来看,“Cinnamon queen?”这个问题有极大的可能是在问那个奔放的女郎是不是“ji”女,只是不知道英文中是不是也用“鸡”来指代“ji”女,希望有人来确认或者否定一下。

thanx anyway。

这位性工作者太矜持了,第三天才跟客户上床。没听说queen有妓女的意思,倒听说有男同性恋的意思

并不是说那个女的真是Ji女,而是歌手在向同伴讲述这件事情的时候,同伴问“她是不是Ji女”。
歌手告诉同伴他在路上遇到那个女的,女的问他时间,他说要电话号码,同伴说你这样难道她不生气?歌手说不,同伴不信,问,真的吗?歌手说当然,同伴问长得怎样(可能他认为丑女比较容易一拍即合吧),歌手说年轻漂亮,同伴说她很急切吗?歌手说等都等不及了,同伴想,那肯定是Ji女吧!否则怎么这么饥渴,有男的勾搭就上?!
这就是我判断的逻辑。根据这个逻辑,cinnamon queen极可能是ji女的意思。我在最开始说了,cinnamon queen指的是一种母鸡品种,所以我猜想英文也有用“鸡”来指代ji女的用法,希望求证。
