Girl – you’re really cool
Smart – that’s good at school
Pretty – you’re beautiful
A parody of pop-rap “love songs,” as seen on Heems' single “Womyn.” Heems’s point is probably that proclamations of love have fallen quite far from Shakespeare’s sonnets — “poets” now resort to wishy-washy words like “cool”, “smart”, and “pretty”. Furthermore, they don’t even do interesting things with these words: they just define them.
But you never really know with DR: sometimes they’re joking, sometimes they’re being deadly serious. Here, the words are simple, suggesting young love. It is reminiscent of Big Star’s “Thirteen."
