“To second” alguma coisa, significa concordar com algo que foi proposto anteriormente por outra pessoa.

Formalmente, como por exemplo em reuniões, quando alguém sugere ou propõe uma ideia, é preciso ter um “second” (alguém que concorde com o proposto) para que a discussão ocorra de fato. Sem esse “second”, a ideia não é considerada.

Informalmente, se há pessoas conversando em um grupo e alguém tem uma ideia ou faz uma observação acerca de algum assunto específico, caso alguém diga “I second that”, quer dizer que ele/ela apoia e concorda com a opinião que foi disposta.

Sinônimos: “I completely agree”, “agreed”, “I agree with you 100% (a hundred percent)”, “I couldn’t agree more”, “word”, “dead on”, “I support that”, “totally” etc.

Letra:

Maybe you want to give me kisses sweet
But only for one night with no repeat
Maybe you’d go away and never call
And a taste of honey is worse than none at all (oh little girl)

Oh little girl, in that case I don’t want no part
That would only break my heart
Oh, but if you feel like loving me
If you got the notion
I second that emotion
Said, if you feel like giving me
A lifetime of devotion
I second that emotion

Maybe you think that love would tie you down
You ain’t got the time to hang around
Maybe you think that love was made for fools
So it makes you wise to break the rules

Oh little girl, in that case I don’t want no part
That would only break my heart
Oh, but if you feel like loving me
If you got the notion
I second that emotion
Said, if you feel like giving me
A lifetime of devotion
I second that emotion

Maybe you want to give me kisses sweet
But only for one night with no repeat
Maybe you’d go away and never call
And a taste of honey is worse than none at all (oh little girl)

Oh little girl, in that case I don’t want no part
That would only break my heart
Oh, but if you feel like loving me
If you got the notion
I second that emotion
Said, if you feel like giving me
A lifetime of devotion
I second that emotion

Maybe you think that love would tie you down
You ain’t got the time to hang around
Maybe you think that love was made for fools
So it makes you wise to break the rules

Oh little girl, in that case I don’t want no part
That would only break my heart
Oh, but if you feel like loving me
If you got the notion
I second that emotion
Said, if you feel like giving me
A lifetime of devotion
I second that emotion

Well, if you feel like giving me
A lifetime of devotion
