Its not about Uma?How many times have I belted out the words to whatever is on the raido as I drive? Countless. I like the beat of an Adele song and im pretty quick on picking up the words..so I just sing and sing wherever I may be going. I usually think about the song and its meaning and although I like the beat I have always been a bit confused by this one. So it seems to be about a guy who's going to be leaving his girl for another woman, named Uma. Well Uma must be a pretty special girl if he's going to make a change like that. But what really got me is the twist at the end where she sings, "Uma has it, he's the one I'm leaving you for." What?? Uma is a man? Uma has been refered to as a woman throughout the song. I have tried and tried to analize this and understand the situation to no avail. My "a ha!" Moment came this afternoon when I realized the name of the song, 'RUMOR has it'. Yep..I just got it! All this time I thought it was "UMA has it! Well a girl named uma and the word rumor being interchanged affected the way I interperped the entire song. Take a listen for yourself sometime...and just picture me confidently belting out uma... haha... (rumor has it, by adele). Happy laughter!
