The Jonas Brothers’ “Sucker” Lyrics Meaning
“Sucker” is the title of a sweet love song recorded and performed by the noted American rock band, the Jonas Brothers. The lyrics of “Sucker” focus on the extraordinarily deep love someone has for their significant other. The kind of love the Jonas Brothers describe in this tune is one that is so deep it makes one do crazy stuff like “dancing on top of cars”. This is the kind of love that the narrators (Nick and Joe) apparently have for their respective lovers. They love their women so much that they would instantaneously follow them wherever they go, including “through the dark”.
In the chorus, the narrators (who can’t seem to get enough of their lovers) admit that after all is said and done, they see themselves as nothing but absolute suckers for their respective partners. And they mean this in an absolute good way. As a matter of fact, they are actually proud to be suckers for their women. And as if that isn’t enough, they want the entire world to know this. They therefore shout it from the rooftop that they are limitless, unadulterated suckers for their women.
