Baby Got Back Simile Analysis
Sir-Mix-Alot effectively exemplifies the use of similes multiple times in the song, Baby Got Back. The most popular example of a simile is when he says, "I just can't help myself, I'm actin' like an animal." This simile is intended to demonstrate the singer's emotions and lack of control over himself. The "animal" is used to describe himself as having a lack of morals and failure to acknowledge any rules. He believes that the female is attractive to the point where he cannot wait any longer before engaging in a highly inappropriate sexual encounter.
