This is a part of a lyrics:
"so you can have a little whine and
a moan it's only because you're feeling alone"
When I looked for the meaning of "whine" and "moan" they´ve seemed too similar.
What is the difference?
Perhaps you didn't read all the meanings, Brioche. Dictionary.com goes on to say -
- To utter a plaintive, high-pitched, protracted sound, as in pain, fear, supplication, or complaint.
- To complain or protest in a childish fashion.
- To produce a sustained noise of relatively high pitch: jet engines whining.
We 'whine and moan' in the US, too.
There's also the slightly more variation bitch and moan.
The moaning is an unhappy sound that supposedly accompanies the petulant complaining.
Hello leeela552, and welcome to WordReference.The phrase "to have a whine and a moan" means to have sex. In the song (I'm assuming Smile by Lily Allen), she doesn't mean two separate things.
2. a deep, inarticulate sound uttered in derision, disapproval, desire, etc
