Hi boys and girls, I'm french and I don't really get the meaning of "Suzy Creamchease, what's got into you ?". Does it means something has been into her ? Something is in her ? Could you explain to me the meaning of this. Thank you :)

It's an expression, as opposed to something actually being in her. It's another way of saying "Why are you doing what you are doing?"

Hello, teenage America (heh),
My name is Suzy Creemcheese,
(SNORK)
I'm Suzy Creemcheese because I've never worn fake eyelashes in my whole life
And I never made it on surfing set
And I never made it on beatnik set
And I couldn't cut the groupie set either
And, um . . .
Actually I really fucked up in Europe.
(SNORRRRRK)
Now that I've done it all over and nobody else will accept me
(SNORRRK)
I've come home to my Mothers

(Suzy Creecheese) Uncle meat

"What's got into you?" is an expression used to inquire why someone is demonstrating uncharacteristic behavior.

hm ok, I think I've undestertood.

PS : Even though you probably don't care, you should say "bonne chance" because chance is female, so "bon" is turned into "bonne" (you know our words are "male" or "female" ^^).

The gender issue eh? In English it's really only ships, planes,cars and so on that are refered to as female. I believe Squadron Leader Lord Flashheart summed it up when he said a man should treat his plane like he treats a woman: "get inside her five times a day and take her to heaven and back."

boom boom
