to be souped

Postby Strigo » 2005-10-14, 15:48

Hi,

I heard this expression in a song...

"Don't read me wrong, I'm really not souped"

And I can't find it in any of my dictionaries.

To soup something up means to fix or make changes/additions to something in order to make it noticeably better. You’ll hear it a lot in reference to cars. For example: He really souped up his car means, he (probably spent a lot of money) to fix up his car (which wasn’t necessarily a piece of junk in the first place).

"My Prerogative", right? :P In this context it seems to mean “I’m not fake”.

Thank you very much, and it's Britney indeed.

Who said that people can't learn with pop music? xD
