Acronyms in a song

A few weeks back, I heard a country song on the radio in which the singer sang:

I smell T.R.O, you B.L.E.

I puzzled for a while over what T.R.O. and B.L.E. were before I got it.

It may be more obvious in print, but if you don't see it, say it aloud a couple of times. And/or Google [Travis Tritt T.R.O.], which will also reveal the name of the song.

    Haha, I know the song well, and while I have never misinterpreted the lyrics that way, I understand. The pause and emphasis on “you” does sound that way. If anybody is wondering, you are best off to listen to the chorus of the song.
