I've been wondering about this for sometime now. In the Elvis Presley classic, Jailhouse Rock, are the following lyrics:
Number forty-seven said to number three:So, what exactly is going on between Number 47 and Number 3? Are they both men? One would assume such, since I doubt the jail was co-ed. In the '50's, when this song came out, I wonder was there any thought about the potential homosexual suggestiveness of this lyric?
"You're the cutest jailbird I ever did see.
I sure would be delighted with your company,
come on and do the Jailhouse Rock with me."
I mean, what the hell is going on? Questions need to be answered!!!
