    I'm trying to understand the song "Nashki Oti" by Sivan Shavit (the song and its lyrics are easily found by googling).

    The song is being sung by a woman to a man, yet she sings "nashki oti" which means "kiss (2nd person, female) me". Why? Is this just poetic license?

    The lyrics are:

    We both are going in the car
    ... (=male) sing me with the radio a song of love
    "Kiss me (female)..

    Those are the words she says he sings her with the radio in the car..
