What does "a-hanging" mean?
When he said "a-hangin" here, he meant it as a "hangout" or a "get together" between friends. However, it turned out to sound like he was singing about a "hanging", which refers to a hate crime in history where people were hung from trees. In this skit, he did not mean to sing about this but his song ended up sounding like this. "A-hangin" is not a real phrase and does not actually mean a "hangout".
