Tell Us A Line In A Song You Didn't Fully Comprehend Until You Were Older

"I'll take you to the candy shop. Give you a taste of what I got."

For instance, maybe you thought 50 Cent's lyric "I'll take you to the candy shop. Give you a taste of what I got" was, indeed, talking about candy.

Or perhaps you thought Ed Sheeran's lyric in "A Team" — "They say she's in the class A team. Stuck in her daydream. Been this way since 18" — was about an unpopular girl.

Or maybe you thought "Who let the dog out? Who? Who?" was referring to actual dogs making their grand escape.
