A lot or a little?
The parents' guide to what's in this music.
What parents need to know
Parents need to know that "Give a Little" is a pretty harmless track that describes a couple in the initial stages of flirtation. While it includes some mildly suggestive lines, like "make her blush when you put your hand on her hips," the lyrics are still tame compared to many of the pop songs out there. With no explicit language or other mature content, this tune is an acceptable pick for the younger set.
What's the story?
GIVE A LITTLE is the new single by Hanson, a singing group of three brothers who are now all grown up but once were as popular as the JoBros, back in the day. This tune is a bit sexier than their previous songs, with a couple of steamier lyrics like "wrap your arms around her body." That said, there is still no profanity or graphic adult content of any kind here, making this song an OK choice for younger ears.
