The phrase that stuck out the most from the chorus is "apple bottom jeans". When this song came out, in our early 20s,  we had the incorrect idea that we had to have wide hips and an apple bottom to be beautiful in the eyes men, other women, and of society periodt. Fast forwarding a decade nothing has changed. On top of having wide hips and an apple bottom, society has added big breasts and a wash board stomach to the equation.
