Despite some British listeners interpreting it more crudely, the song's title is an innocent one referring to a Bajan expression meaning to knock someone down. Amanda told Digital Spy
: "'Lick Ya Down' is a phrase from Barbados which contrary to popular belief in England is not
naughty - It means 'knock ya down'! We had to add in an explanation at the beginning of the video of what it means as everyone thought it was something else. There's a lot of fun, attitude and energy in there."
