Lil Nas X - MONTERO (Call Me By Your Name)
MONTERO (Call Me By Your Name)
- Baby, you livin' the life, but nigga, you ...:
The other man is living a life of luxury (weed and wine being at the table, two very expensive things, as well as being able to drink and do cocaine with his friends), but is still closeted. Though he is “living the life”, he isn’t living his truth as being attracted to other men.
This line could also be interpreted as Lil Nas X confidently believing that he is the right partner for the other man, and that the man isn’t “living right” until they’re together.
- only here to sin
If Eve ain't in your garden...:
Referring to homosexuality which is supposed to be a sin in Christianity.
- Shoot a child in your mouth while I'm ...:
Lil Nas X is “riding” his partner while facing them during intercourse. He notes the action of “shoot[ing] a child” into his partner’s mouth, a euphemism for ejaculating into the other man’s mouth.
- A dime and a nine, it was mine every week:
A “dime and nine” is equal to 19, which refers to the record-setting nineteen weeks Old Town Road was No. 1 on the Top 100 charts. No. 1 was his spot every week, and his growth in popularity was on an “incline”.
- Tell me you love me in private:
The guy that Lil Nas has a crush on is closeted/ashamed, and is afraid to say he has feelings for him publicly.
- God was shinin' on me:
God has his back that's why he's so lucky
