Mensagem: 

    In essence, from the piece of text, it is a tradition in wich a few people have a hard time in benefit of the whole crowd (but these few people knows that next time he is going to be part of the crowd, naturally).

    In a song, the use is more metaphorically.   But I think, it has to do bear pressure on benefit of somebody else.

    It´s a guess, let´s wait the guys in the know.

 

   See you again.
