Back in January, Mikolas Josef won the Czech Republic’s new national final Eurovision Song CZ with his saucy song “Lie to Me”. But there was one problem — the song had a little too much attitude, laden with F-bombs and sexually suggestive lyrics. Now the Eurovision version of the song has been released and… nothing much has changed.

The lyrics are slightly cleaner, but it’s only the profanity that’s been cleaned up. The infamous line “Plenty motherf******s wanna eat my spaghetti” is now “Plenty of these greedies wanna eat my spaghetti”. One could argue that the spaghetti is the most important part of this lyric, so Team Czechia has wisely preserved its essence.

The other problematic line was “Now, baby I don’t give a f**k/You should have thought about me/Before you ****ed him at the club”. Again, the essence remains, but with different rhyming. Mikolas now raps, “Now baby I don’t give a damn/You should have thought about me/Back when I was your man”

But still intact is all the suggestive lyrics. The good girl’s skirt still goes up like Marilyn Monroe’s, she’s got him “making a puddle” and there’s still the iconic line “I know you ‘bop-whop-a-lu bop’ on his wood bamboo”.

But should those lyrics even be changed? They sound sexual, but we’re not entirely sure what they really mean. It makes us wonder if Mikolas rapping a grocery list in his seductive tones would sound just as filthy.

Interestingly, the mention of the fashion label Prada has been left in the lyrics. Along with San Marino’s mention of Twitter, this suggests that the EBU is becoming more relaxed around the rule that very specifically forbids brand names to be mentioned in song lyrics.

But whatever the lyrics, the new version of the song hasn’t affected the Czech Republic’s odds. They are still the third favourite country to win Eurovision 2018 — and are set to at least deliver the Czech Republic’s best ever Eurovision result.

“Lie to Me” lyrics – Mikolas Joseph (Czech Republic)

Oh she’s a good girl at home
But her skirt goes up
Like Marilyn Monroe’s

Papa likes the drama
Mama hotter than lava
She rocking high heels, Prada,
Her face like Madonna

By the way she moved,
Got me making a puddle
Baby I already knew
You would be nothing but a trouble

Dammit, everybody knows
She never loved for real
Honey bunny up all night
Wannabe couple goals queen

I know you
I know you ‘bop-whop-a-lu bop’ on his wood bamboo
When you were still seeing me
And well he didn’t even knew, hmm,
But Godammit it, come and count to three
now sit down GGY I’m on fire

So come and lie to me
Lie to me, oh baby
Come a little closer
Lie to me
Lie to me, oh baby
Lean upon my shoulder
Lie to me

Get down on my body
Love me like it was always meant to be
Now you love somebody new I always knew
So come and give it to me

When the beat dropped, she dropped
Dropped it like its hot
And now without a second thought
She got me doing what I’m not
Then it got heavy
Mom, I’m feeling home already but steady
Plenty of these greedies wanna eat my spaghetti

Then she got one of my friends
She got him dripping on wood
I know it hurt so bad but it feels so good
Quit sweet talking me
Now baby I don’t give a damn
You should have thought about me
Back when I was your man

I know you ‘bop-whop-a-lu bop’ on his wood bamboo
When you were still seeing me
And well he didn’t even knew, hmm,
But God damn it come and count to three
Now sit down GGY I’m on fire

So come and lie to me
Lie to me, oh baby
Come a little closer
Lie to me
Lie to me, oh baby
lean upon my shoulder
Lie to me

Get down on my body
Love me like it was always meant to be
Now you love somebody new I always knew
So come and give it to me

You know I like it
(When you lie, lie, lie)
You look so good
(When you lie, lie, lie
Set my camel in the mood
(When you lie, lie, lie)
(When you lie, lie, lie)

So come and lie to me
Lie to me, oh baby
Come a little closer
Lie to me
Lie to me, oh baby
Lean upon my shoulder
Lie to me

Get down on my body
Love me like it was always meant to be
Now you love somebody new I always knew
So come and give it to me

They have singing in the backing track. A womans voice. Against Eurovision rules.

This one and Israel’s songs are not the way to send messages through songs. Trivial, rude and disrespectful. This song is disgusting towards woman. Israel’s one pretends to put men down to make women have some protagonism. This is not the way to approach feminism. Women are better than that and they love their men. Radicalism is for simple minds.

By now they’ve got the unconscious juvenile approval, but pretty sure they won’t win when everybody gets in play. I expect some other to step up with something classy and beautiful.

Sorry, but lyrics are too much unrespectful for womens to me and not at all “classy”
Note it : if the guy wasn’t handsome, everybody would say : what a libidinous and pervert guy !
But when the singer is handsome, nevermind, this is “fun” !
Just my point of view.

Justin Timberlake wanna be. I am not sure it will make the final. Nothing original, nothing exulting! Just a copy-paste type of song. It will have the same faith as Jana Burceska’s song “Dance alone”. She was also a non-original, a Kylie Minogue wanna be.

At the same time I get why people can get offended about the lyrics and see it as going against everything is happening in the world right now, I also can read it as just a silly boy that still doesn’t know how to act around a woman that is just minding her own business and feeling free to date/hook up/whatever with different guys. He can’t take her off his mind, he resents the fact that she’s seeing other men (including one of his friends), but he still wants her. It’s not even clear if she cheated on him, because… Read more »

They don’t have curse words in Eurovision songs because its supposed to be a family show that kids can watch. Especially because of all the languages involved in Eurovision if they allowed anything to be said in a song you could have children in Spain saying really awful things in Estonian and they wouldn’t even know what they were saying. Not to mention what a song from Azerbaijan might say about Armenians if the EBU didn’t have any rules as to song content in the contest for example. Also I think some people’s issues with the innuendo in the song… Read more »

Except his song is all about objectification. “Her skirt goes up like Marilyn Monroe’s” The entire song is just about him trying to get in some girl’s pants.

Ok so I too used to hate this song bc the message sounded bad but! After hearing him talk and much later actually reading the lyrics, the message seems pretty different. More like it’s about getting over an ex who cheated, not saying she owes him. Idk it definitely comes across badly initially but once looking into it a bit more it seems much nicer. Also the song itself has grown on me now I don’t hate the message lol

Why don’t you read the lyrics and decide for yourself? My understanding the song is about a girl who cheats on her boyfriend – he’s angry, but still wants to be with her.

K
Guest
K

??? That’s not the lyrics/message at all? It’s pretty on-the-nose about being about a dude whose (ex?)-gf keeps cheating on him over and over again, but he keeps crawling back to her anyway despite knowing she wont be faithful….. and letting her lie to him and act like she DOES love him while he knows it isn’t true, given her track record (and that the chorus implies it happens again immediately bc yet again she already loves somebody new).

It may not be particularly poetic and heartfelt but there’s definitely a distinct “”plot”” to the song

Weißbrot

I agree. The lyrics are about calling a girl out on her adultery and glancing over it at the same time. They have a consenting adult relationship. The ”she” in this song is being called out, but not ”slut-shamed” as ”he” is her boyfriend. He notices her faults, but lets it slide because they are still good together and it still pays off. I am 100% against any abuse of power and a supporter of a #MeToo movement, but I don’t think this particular song is insulting to women. Just like Netta’s song isn’t insulting to men, as it calls… Read more »

He gave an interview and said that the song is about his partner cheating on him with his best friend, so your comments about him expecting a girl to do something are a bit of a stretch. The lyrics literally say how she was on his ‘wood bamboo’ when she was still seeing me? Calling out cheating isn’t slut shaming. If this song was to have came from a woman about a man cheating you’d be screaming empowerment but because it’s from a man it’s oppressive.

He was extremely insecure and confused since he is quite young and inexperienced. We blame the team who was behind the choreography, people complain why they even gave him those magic trick gestures… all those learned movements restrained him to perform naturally. I find him cocky and arrogant, it’s like he thinks he’s the best performer of the country since he won so many national music awards in such a short period and thus feeding his smugness. I’m glad (and not surprised) that he failed, the failure is a good slap-in-the-face so he can finally wake up and realize that… Read more »

I’ve seen this comparison before and personally I don’t get it. I think with Jüri the problem was that his energy combined with the song and the staging gave off a creepy vibe. Mikolas’ performance in Ukraine was very fresh and relaxed and he came off as incredibly likable. I’m sure his performance in Lisbon will be awesome. The song might not be a jury favorite but I think he’ll do extremely well in the televote.

The euphemisms used in the song were actually pretty clever.

This is just the latest in long line of songs that have used clever euphemisms for sexually suggestive lyrics. At least it’s more subtle than “Whistle” by Flo Rida!

I guess (and that’s just a blind guess) they are okay with dropping a trademark name if it’s random and inconsequential to the song meaning, while straight-up propaganda would not be okay. Then again, JESC Portugal, so I don’t really know. Maybe they crossed the rule completely?
