What is the meaning of a phrase "you catch that mirror way out west"? There has been a question on italki about Duran Duran - Rio. I remember there were a lot of football games when people used to scream "Rio, Rio, Ferdinand..." Really nice song. So, the question: What is the meaning of a phrase "you catch that mirror way out west"? I can catch a ball a watermelon if smb throws it to me, different things but mirror... hm pretty heavy to catch even with those steps and flicks (just joking). "Moving on the floor now babe you're a bird of paradise Cherry ice cream smile I suppose it's very nice (DOES HE MEAN SMILE OR ICE CREAM that is very nice) With a step to your left and a flick to the right you catch that mirror way out west You know you're something special and you look like you're the best" Paul answered that "flick" could mean" a sudden look to the right" because of the "mirror"? So, could you please elucidate this? Thank you for all the answers!

These are just my guesses: 1) "Cherry ice cream smile" - I wonder if this was even a colour of lipstick in the past? That's the most logical answer to me... cherry/cream colour. 2) I also think "a flick" is a flick of the hair. As for catching, you can catch someone's eye, catch the light, or catch a glimpse (of yourself in a mirror, way over on the other side of the room?).

My interpretation is that the "flick" is a flick of the hair, and catching the mirror way out west is catching sight of the person in the mirror. Maybe someone else more familiar with the context can shed some light on this.
