"knock me down for a six anytime" in Body Language - can anyone explain this to me? I know the question was asked here before but never really answered. I remember that somebody said it's a cricket term but what is a "six" in cricket?

A 'Six' is when the batsman hits the ball to the boundary in the air, without the ball touching the ground.

If it goes to the boundary and touches the ground it's a 'four'

Owzat?

Six is also slang for forced entry from behind... ahem. Or am I dreaming :P

Thanks, I am not pretending to understand this having never seen a cricket game in my life. How does that explain the line in Body Language?

Edit: I did not see your post, Pete. I cannot imagine FM was so blunt:)

not sure - hitting a six (in Cricket) is similar to hitting a home run in baseball.

Being dealt a rather large blow, perhaps? (no sniggering at the back)

Being hit for six is a suprising experience for batsman and bowler. Then you set a dangerously close legside field and bowl bouncers at the batsman hoping he'll top edge them to the leg slip or other legside fielders.

How does that create a metapher for Body Language? Considering the previous lines of the song I am beginning to think that pma's explanation makes more sense and cricket has nothing to do with it...

The Rules of Cricket for Foreigners

A Foreigner will possess the essential knowledge of cricket when he fully understands the following:

You have two sides: One out in the field and one in.
Each man that's in the side that's in goes out and when he's out he comes in and the next man goes in until he's out.
When they are all out the side that's out comes in and the side that's been in goes out and tries to get those coming in out.
Sometimes you get men still in and not out.
When both sides have been in and out including the not outs,
That's the end of the game.

Cricket has everything to do with everything. Why Freddie looks similar to Anil Kumble of India!

But if it is relation to rump roasting then I wouldn't say that I've ever 'hit a six'

heh, good description of cricket there. You missed the part about Australia being a super power and England being in the doldrums.

It's basically just an idiom that, presumably, evolved from the cricketing term, and now simply means to be stunned, or bowled over (ho hum, another cricketing metaphor).

In the context of the song, I'd say Fred meant "Your stunning looks are so powerful they knock me over. I bet you're hung like a shire-horse as well". Well, perhaps not the second bit, but you know what I mean.

He does use the term in quite an odd way though.

Weirdly, after a little research I can't seem to find any record of this phrase anywhere.

Some sites have very exhaustive lists of idioms, and yet there's not a trace of this one. It just doesn't seem to exist.

I'm beginning to question whether I have actually ever heard this phrase used outside of Body Language...

elaborating the term 'six' a bit.. (bit of an alternative meaning to forced entry which is a prison term more or so lol)

KINSEY SIX

A person who is completely homosexual, as opposed to one with some bisexual inclinations. Sex researcher Alfred Kinsey developed a scale from 0 to 6 to indicate a subject's sexual orientation. A person with no homosexual feelings was ranked a zero. Someone exclusively homosexual was a 6.

To be honest what ever the song lyric
means, it's all in our heads.
Want it to be cricket ? why not. It's not like
Freddie's going to come by and tell us ;-)

I thought Freddie meant a "six" as in "six-packing" (the sexual term)

Thanks, Steve, now I don't feel so stupid:-)
Pete, I am not asking for an explanation of the lyrics as in "interpretation" , I am just asking about an English expression I could not find in Webster or Oxford dictionary.

I think it's a combination of "knock me out for the count" as in boxing, and "hit me for six" as in cricket.

But then I have no experience of the language of gay sex, so what would I know?

"Great game is Cricket. Not like Baseball, which is strictly for girls."

Uhm, no, but fast-pitch softball seems to be that way. Ever tried that? Standing 45 feet from someone throwing a ball 80+ MPH at you?

Or baseball, when you're 60'6" away with someone throwing 90 MPH +, that ball is coming at your head, and you've got a split second to figure out if it's a fastball that's gonna knock your ass out if you don't move, or curves away at the last second.

If everything was so easy, everyone would do everything easily.

oh, yeah, Body Language, bad song, the six thing has something to do with cricket..........loved the explanation of the rules earlier;-)
