And I love you, I don't love nobody else, yeah

Tell them they can take that bullshit elsewhere

Another phrase I cannot to understand. How I undestand he lets a media to tell about it in their papers...


They can take that [anything] elsewhere means "I want them to go away and stop bothering me with whatever it is".

The expression is take [something] to [somewhere]; with an adverbial like somewhere or elsewhere, the "to" is not required, but this is still the meaning.

"Bullshit" is just an extra derogatory epithet for whatever it is.

    Don't take any shit. means don't take their derogatory epithets to heart. "Bullshit" in this context refers to lies. 'take your lies elsewhere'. If someone's bullshitting you, they're trying to con you. – Mazura Dec 30 '18 at 22:00

    Yes, but Don't take any shit is a different expression, which is not at play here. – Colin Fine Dec 30 '18 at 22:04

    My point is that if you replace that "[anything]" with bullshit, more than just being derogatory, it often connotes insincerity. take that shit elsewhere speaks to the inappropriateness of the thing. take that bullshit elsewhere refers to the ineptitude of the giver (and their 'crap'). – Mazura Dec 30 '18 at 22:18
  • @Colin Fine, the best explanation for me, thank you! – Дмитрий Dec 31 '18 at 13:26
