I can't see anything remotely objectionable/dodgy in the lyric or subject. Mind you, I don't know what p.l.p. means - is that it? Seems to be about a guy who's stopped hanging out at old haunts because he's fallen in love. What are you talking about?
No, all in the pronunciation. Rickie's not a racist. But, for example, every so often a band will have to send a press release to radio stations saying their latest single doesn't use the F word, it just sounds like it, the human ear (and indeed voice) is not infallible.
Makes one wonder how mispronunciation could be the reason then.
Thinking back, I was pondering on 'Melting pot' by Blue Mink when I wrote that. My mind must have mixed them up.
No point in me changing the post, it's already out there.
Apologies to the lady concerned.
