Was the popular 90s classic, 'Sweat' by Inner Circle, actually the terrifying confessions a rapist?

Heard this song again the other day. Back in the day, when I was a schoolboy, I never really paid attention to the lyrics. Hearing them now, I'm a little worried. It's not just the actual words. It's the levity with which he sings them in such a jolly reggae tune.

Sweat - Inner Circle

I've been watching you

C'mon!

Hey!

Standing across the room
I saw you smile
Said I want to talk to you-oo-oo
For a little while
But before I make my move
My emotions start running wild
My tongue gets tied
And that's no lie

Looking in your eyes
Looking in you big brown eyes
Ooh yeah
And I've got this to say to you
Hey!

Girl I want to make you sweat
Sweat till you can't sweat no more
And if you cry out
I'm gonna push it some, mo-o-ore
Girl I want to make you sweat
Sweat till you can't sweat no more
And if you cry out
I'm gonna push it
Push it, push it some more


C'mon!

Ooh

So I said to myself
"Does she love me or not?"

But the dreads done know
That love is his to get
With a little bit of this
And a little bit of that
the lyrics goes on the attack
My tongue gets tied
And that's no lie

Looking in your eyes
Looking in your big brown eyes
Ooh girl
And I've got this to say to you
Hey!

Girl I want to make you sweat
Sweat till you can't sweat no more
And if you cry out
I'm gonna push it some mo-o-ore
Girl I want to make you sweat
Sweat till you can't sweat no more
And if you cry out
I'm gonna push it
Push it, push it some more


Ooh yeah!

One more time!

Sing it!

Hey!

Woo woo woo woo wee yeah

I'm looking in your big brown eyes
Ooh Yeah
And I've got this to say to you
Hey!

Girl I want to make you sweat
Sweat till you can't sweat no more
And if you cry out
I'm gonna push it some mo-o-ore
Girl I want to make you sweat
Sweat till you can't sweat no more
And if you cry out
I'm gonna push it
Push it, push it some more


Yeah!

Push it, push it some more

Alright!

Push it, push it some more

No rape.

He's just telling her....da more you moan, da more you get da bone....until she runs out of sweat...in which case some nice vitamin water might be helpful.

@2PacksAday,
Yeh but it chillingly opens with,

"I've been watching you".

He may aswell continue...

"Mmm. Yeh. Tru dee curtains. Do ya wanna sweety. Get in me van."

@2PacksAday,
Somewhere around here is a whole thread devoted to the proposition that Doris Day's "A Guy is a Guy" is all about a stalker.
