Mojo magazine commented that the lyric, "If you ain't gonna do me right. I might just do you in" sounds a bit extreme. Bradley responded laughing: "I just said it the way I feel it in my heart. Everybody was thinking I was being very aggressive, but I was saying, 'Don't do me wrong, I won't do you wrong.' We all gotta make things right. I just like that feeling, and the fundamental of the music gimme that zozz feeling where I can just let go."
The chorus of "Voulez-vous coucher avec moi ce soir" in "Lady Marmalade" is French for "Do you want to sleep with me tonight?" When Labelle performed it on television, they had to change it to "Voulez-vous danser avec moi ce soir" (Do you want to dance with me tonight?).
