Face Down, Ass Up

Album: Banned in the U.S.A. (1990)
  • songfacts ®
  • Lyrics
  • By 1990, 2 Live Crew had developed a reputation for being incredibly offensive, and they did their best to live up to the notoriety on their Banned in the U.S.A. album. This song refers to the preference the members of 2 Live Crew have within the act of sexual intercourse. They are expressing that they enjoy penetration with the face pointed downward and the buttocks facing the air. >>
