The lyrics are full of sexual innuendo, but the song managed to elude censors because, hey, he's just singing about sugar, right? Like Def Leppard's "Pour Some Sugar On Me
," the sweet title is a euphemism for sex and Levine plays it up in the lyrics. He's "gotta get one little taste" and:I want that red velvet
I want that sugar sweet
Don't let nobody touch it
"Red Velvet" is a popular cake choice but velvet is also a double entendre for a certain part of the female anatomy. Don't blame our dirty minds - that analogy dates all the way back to Victorian England.
