The Nonsensical Lyrics:
Got a new skank, so reet.
Why They're Nonsensical:
Is Chrissie a lesbian because she has a new 'skank' (whatever that is)? And I suppose she uses 'reet' in the next phrase (rather than the usual word, "right"), because she wants to rhyme it with "can't miss a beat"... most of us don't know the word 'reet'!
