I have been singing this song all night to cheer me up. There's no getting around it - the lyrics are not safe for work, as it contains swear words. That said, you might get away with it, as it's so cheerful in the best do-wop fashion. No matter how prudish you are when it comes to swearing. I defy you not to be charmed by Cee Lo's cheerful hatred. (by the way - "Cheerful Hatred" = Best Emo Band Name EVER)
by the way - when Cee Lo sings, "I pity the fool who falls in love with you" the back-up singers pop up and sing, "Oh shit, she's a gold digger.....just thought you should know nigga" - and they do it so cheerfully - it slays me. I know that word is very controversial and all and I'm not trying to litigate it here, but if ever there was a song that would make people smile at innocuous use, it's here.
