Insulting Song Lyrics:

"1,2,3, Red Light"
The Insulting Lyrics:
Stop the game, you've got too much to lose.
If you stop me again
That's when we might end
So please don't
Why They're Insulting:
If someone threatened me that if I wouldn't have sex with him to leave me--especially if we're not married I'd run the other direction. It's obvious the author cared more about having sex than about about the person he was in the relationship with.

1910 Fruitgum Company, along with Ohio Express and the cartoon inspired fack group known as the Archies were the late 1960's most prolific performers and best sellers in the subgenre of pop/rock known as Bubblegum rock music or as it would later become to be known as Bubblegum music . Bubblegum music was aimed at a new audience of record buyers that ad men of the late 1960's were all too familiar with, pre-teens of about 10 to 12 years of age and very young teens from 13 to 14 years of age. Those age groups were able to buy records and music and also influence much about the pop culture of the last two years of the 1960's and the first two years of the 1970's (see the popularity of groups such as the Jackson Five, the Osmond Brothers and the Partridge Family and TV shows such as "The Brady Bunch" to see how this trend continued into the next decade) because they had parents who were enjoying fairly good economic times of the last two years of the 1960's and first two years of the 1970's. Bubblegum music originally was an outgrowth of the psychedelic rock that such groups and artists as the Doors, Jimi Hendrix and Jefferson Airplane had made popular in 1967. But when Strawberry Alarm Clock's "Incense & Peppermints" became popular with a younger audience than what was originally intended such songs as the Lemon Piper's "Green Tambourine" and John Fred & his Playboy Band's "Judy In Disguise (With Glasses)" became re-labeled as Bubblegum and so started the trend. The earliest of these groups that knew they were aiming for the Bubblegum music buying audience was 1910 Fruitgum Company and their spring 1968 hit, "1,2, 3 Red Light" which went to #2 that spring. "1, 2, 3 Red Light" also started 1910 Fruitgum Company's ability to craft hit songs around children's games with strong references to love that might appeal to the 10 to 14 years old that were just starting to have attractions to the opposite sex.
