Raise Your Glass
Lyrics taken from: http://www.metrolyrics.com/raise-your-glass-lyrics-pink.html
Linguistic aspects: let's start right from the title of the lyrics, "Raise Your Glass", i.e. an invitation to drink together with someone and celebrate his/her success, happiness, health, etc. What's a dealeo? Urban Dictionary explains that is an Idaho expression for closing a tupper ware sales.
Let's pass now to informal expressions: if you are underdogs, it means here that you have little money and you feel depressed. The nitty-gritty is a detail that you have to specify. Besides the word gangster is here used to make reference to an illitterate inhabitant of a downtrodden ghetto who hangs around in gangs.
In conclusion let's analyse an idiomatic expression: if you are too school for cool you are very committed and prefer education or work over social life and friends.
