The song Rude by the Canadian reggae fusion band Magic, has been the LSS of a lot of people worldwide including Filipinos for the past few months. The song is catchy, but there's more behind its lyrics.




Rude by Magic

Saturday morning jumped out of bed
And put on my best suit
Got in my car and raced like a jet
All the way to you
Knocked on your door with heart in my hand
To ask you a question
'Cause I know that you're an old-fashioned man, yeah

Can I have your daughter for the rest of my life?
Say yes, say yes 'cause I need to know
You say I'll never get your blessing 'til the day I die
Tough luck, my friend, but the answer is 'No'

Why you gotta be so rude?
Don't you know I'm human too?
Why you gotta be so rude?
I'm gonna marry her anyway

Marry that girl
Marry her anyway
Marry that girl
Yeah, no matter what you say
Marry that girl
And we'll be a family
Why you gotta be so
Rude

I hate to do this, you leave no choice
Can't live without her
Love me or hate me we will be boys
Standing at that altar
Or we will run away
To another galaxy, you know
You know she's in love with me
She will go anywhere I go

Can I have your daughter for the rest of my life?
Say yes, say yes 'cause I need to know
You say I'll never get your blessing 'til the day I die
Tough luck, my friend, 'cause the answer's still 'No"

Why you gotta be so rude?
Don't you know I'm human too?
Why you gotta be so rude?
I'm gonna marry her anyway

Marry that girl
Marry her anyway
Marry that girl
No matter what you say
Marry that girl
And we'll be a family
Why you gotta be so
Rude
Rude

Can I have your daughter for the rest of my life?
Say yes, say yes 'cause I need to know
You say, I'll never get your blessing 'til the day I die
Tough luck, my friend, but 'No' still means 'No'!

Why you gotta be so rude?
Don't you know I'm human too?
Why you gotta be so rude?
I'm gonna marry her anyway

Marry that girl
Marry her anyway
Marry that girl
No matter what you say
Marry that girl
And we'll be a family
Why you gotta be so
Rude
Why you gotta be so
Rude
Why you gotta be so rude?


So popular, it was used by Nestlé Philippines for their Nestea commercial.
But what really caught my attention was these viral videos. Someone covered the song in dad and daughter's perspective.

The Dad's version was covered by Benji and Jenna Covart, a married couple based in Tennessee. It is refreshing to hear the Dad's take on why he is skeptical on some guy marrying her daughter. Trust me, his response was not rude. As of today after posting the cover last July 10, the video has 12 Million hits and still counting.


Rude (Dad's Response) by Benji & Jenna Covart

Saturday morning
You come with out morning
Wake me up from my bed
Seeking permission to marry my princess
Son what's wrong with your big head
It's the first time I met you 
Why would I let you 
Run off with my baby girl
Get back in your pinto
It's time that you go
The answers no
You say you want my daughter for the rest of your life
Well you gotta make more than burgers and fries
Get out your mommas basement boy and get you a life
Son your twenty eight
Don't you think it's time
Why you gotta call me rude
For doing what a dad should do
And keep her from a fool like you
And if if you marry her anyway
Marry that girl
I'm gonna punch your face
Marry that girl
I'll make you go away
Marry that girl
At the bottom of a lake
Ohhhhhh
You may not get this
So let me explain it
Cuz you need to understand
This is forever
She deserves better
She really needs a grown man
I know what you thinking
You think you'll still take her
Give it your best shot
I may be a christian
But I'll go to prison
I'm not afraid of doin hard time
You say you want my daughter for the rest of your life
Well you gotta make more than burgers and fries
Get out your mommas basement boy and get you a life
Son your twenty eight
Don't you think it's time
Why you gotta call me rude
For doing what a dad should do
And keep her from a fool like you
And if if you marry her anyway
Marry that girl
I'm gonna punch your face
Marry that girl
I'll make you go away
Marry that girl
At the bottom of a lake
Ohhhhhh

And of course, the daughter responded as well regarding the drift between his beau and father. There are lots of daughter version cover, but this girl's version is the best for me. It was covered by Daiyan Trisha from Malaysia and uploaded last August 17. As of today, the video has 100K hits.

Rude (Daughter's response) by Daiyan Trisha

Saturday morning, nervously waiting
Today is the day
He's gonna come and ask from my dad 
The permission for marriage 
Knocked on my door with a heart in his hand 
Daddy gave him an answer 
And things aren't really going so well 
(You know what? I gotta do this) 
Dad, can I have his last name for the rest of my life 
Say yes, say yes, coz I need to know 
To know I'll never get your blessings til the day I die 
Is breaking me, daddy please don't say no 
You don't have to be so rude 
Don't you know he's human too 
I know you're doing what a dad should do 
And if I marry him anyway 
Marry that boy, don't make him go away 
Marry that boy, promise that he's okay 
Marry that boy, we'll be a family 
Oooh 
I don't understand why you're being so angry 
We're taking it slowly 
Just wanna assure you he is the man 
That I wanna marry 
Daddy please hear my say, 
We have it all planned out 
And if things don't go our way 
We're not gonna give up 

Chorus 
Daddy please don't say no 
Don't ask him to go 
Coz we'll always find our way....... back so please just say yes? 


So refreshing and I must say all lyrics were realistic. In any relationship, for the couple to reach the next level called marriage, they must have their parents blessing a sign of love and courtesy. Well, I hope everyone of us will not have this kind of trouble and sing these songs. Hahaha :))

By the way, Magic will be having a concert on October 22, 8PM, Wednesday, at the Newport Performing Arts Theater, Resorts World Manila.Ticket Prices (Inclusive of ticket fees): Price Zone 2 is P4,344.00, Price Zone 3 is P3,258.00 and Price Zone 4 is P2,172.00. 


I hope you enjoyed the videos as much as I do. Don't forget to leave some comments below. You have your own version? Let us know.
