Melanie Brown, Emma Bunton, Geri Horner and Melanie Chisholm revealed details of the Spice Girls reunion tour in a video on social media on Monday. As expected Victoria Beckham will not be joining them on tour.  There had been a lot of speculation over the last several years as to whether it would in fact happen but here is their adorable official promo video:

But maybe the most mind blowing thing to come from all the exchanges was Geri Horner (Halliwell) finally clearing up our questions about the true Lyrics of the song Spice Up Your Life.

Towards the end of the song, the ladies do a little shout chorus and I’ve always assumed they are yelling “I see ya, hold tight!”

However, the actual lyric is “Hai, si, ja! Hold tight”.

Showing that the Spice Girls are quality linguists, the words hai, si and ja are Japanese, Spanish and German respectively, for the English word yes.

So essentially, they are singing “Yes, yes, yes, hold tight!”
