"Louie, Louie" still causing concern

Found this story on Yahoo-I thought we got this all settled back in the '60:

dancing is NOT A CRIME!

"footloose" taught us that.

Yeah, but U2dem is still in high school. She's too young to dance.

I can't believe they made the lyrics to this song an issue in 2005. It's ridiculous.

Huh? You mean this song?


Louie Louie, oh no
Me gotta go
Aye-yi-yi-yi, I said
Louie Louie, oh baby
Me gotta go

Fine little girl waits for me
Catch a ship across the sea
Sail that ship about, all alone
Never know if I make it home

CHORUS

Three nights and days I sail the sea
Think of girl, constantly
On that ship, I dream she's there
I smell the rose in her hair.

CHORUS

Okay, let's give it to 'em, right now!

GUITAR SOLO

See Jamaica, the moon above
It won't be long, me see me love
Take her in my arms again
Tell her I'll never leave again

CHORUS

Let's take it on outa here now
Let's go!!

Best covered by Australian Crawl. Pretend I'm a stupid blonde Australian, but what the hell is in these lyrics which causes controversy?

Sincerely,
genuinely stumped.

I don't get it-how are there even any lyrics if it's a high school band? I guess they're afraid people will make up their own.

Your guess is as good as mine. In the 60s the FBI was investigating the song because they thought the lyrics made it sound like it was something raunchy, when, as is obvious from your sharing of the lyrics, is far from being true, but I thought everyone knew since then that there wasn't anything "bad" in this song, so why it's an issue now is way, way beyond me.

Also, if the high school band is going to merely play the song and not sing the words...what exactly is the problem again?

I'm really frightened at how many stupid people I keep hearing about in the news nowadays, seriously...
