    Default Stoop so low : Meaning

    I've heard it a couple of times and I don't know exactly what it means. I have a vague idea on what it could possibly mean based on context basically, but maybe someone knows exactly what this rather common phrase stands for...

    Thanks in advance,

    Flor

    Podrias decirme en que contexto encontraste la frase? Entiendo que podría ser rebajarse, inclinarse, agacharse, pero varía según el contexto. Me gustaria mas información, espero atenta!

    Saludos

    Es la letra de una canción (Somebody That I Used To Know) de una artista llamada Ingrid Michaelson:

    You didn't have to cut me off
    Make out like it never happened and that we were nothing
    And I don't even need your love
    But you treat me like a stranger and that feels so rough
    You didn't have to stoop so low
    Have your friends collect your records and then change your number
    I guess that I don't need that though
    Now you're just somebody that I used to know

    Ahora por lo que veo quizá el significado que mas podria funcionar sería rebajarse, en el sentido de caer tan bajo, no?

    La canción habla de dos personas que se separan y quedan en seguir siendo amigos pero uno de los dos directamente corta cualquier lazo que podría haber quedado entre los dos y se hace negar, como si nunca hubiera conocido a la otra persona...

    Vos que opinas?

    to stoop so low = to do something so rude. cheap, dishonest, dishonorable, unacceptable, undignified, etc.

    I would never stoop so low as to give you an unclear answer. It would be despicable, unforgivable, and rude. LOL

    Glad I could be of help, friends.

    Es caer bajo.

    Tengo entendido que esa canción es del belga Gotye. La cantaron Elise y Phillip en American Idol recientemente.

    You didn't have to stoop so low
    No tenías que caer tan bajo.

    Muchas gracias Cotty!

    Sí, originalmente es de un artista belga llamado Gotye feat. Kimbra, aunque yo escuché primero -y de casualidad- el cover que hizo Ingrid Michaelson... Cuando hice ese post era la única versión de la canción que conocía

    Hola Flor

    El cantante se llama Goyte solamente. Kimbra Jhonson es una cantante neozelandesa que a veces lo acompaña en el escenario.

    Si te gusta esa canción, te va a fascinar la version de mi dos finalistas favoritos de American Idol 2012 Elise y Phillip. Me cuentas qué te pareció.
