White Dress
Lana Del Rey Lyrics


Sun, stare, don't care with my head in my hands
Thinking of a simpler time
Like Sun Ra, feel small but I
Had it under control every time

When I was a waitress
Wearing a white dress
Look how I do this
Look how I got this
I was a waitress
Working the night shift
You were my man
Felt like I got this

Down at the men in music business conference
Down in Orlando, I was only nineteen
Down at the men in music business conference
I only mention it 'cause it was such a scene
And I felt seen
Mmm, mmm, mmm, mmm, mmm, mmm

Summer, sizzling, listening to
Jazz out on the lawn
Listened to white stripes
When they were white-hot
Listening to rock all day long

When I was a waitress
Wearing a tight dress
Handling the heat
I wasn't famous
Just listening to Kings of Leon to the beat
Like look how I got this
Look how I got this
Just sing in the street
Down at the men in music business conference
I felt free 'cause I was only nineteen
Hey hey
Such a scene

Summer's, summer's almost gone
We were talkin' 'bout life
We were sitting outside 'til dawn
But I would still go back
If I could do it all again I'd fly
Because it made me feel
Made me feel like a god
'Cause it made me feel
Made me feel like a god
Somehow it made me feel
Made me feel like a god

When I was a waitress
Wearing a white dress
Look how I do this
Look how I got this
When I was a waitress
Working the night shift
You were my man
Felt like I got this

Down at the men in music business conference
Down in Orlando, I was only nineteen
Down at the men in music business conference
I only mention it 'cause it was such a scene
And I felt seen
Mmm, mmm, mmm, mmm, mmm, mmm

When I was a waitress
Wearing a tight dress
Like look how I do it
Look how I got this
I was a waitress
Wearing a tight dress
Like look how I do this
Look how I got this

Made me feel
Made me feel like a god
It kinda makes me feel
Like maybe I was better off
Because it made me feel
Made me feel like a god
Kinda makes me feel
Like maybe I was better off

When Lana writes about Summer, it reminds me of Shakespeare 🌾🌿 I share his poem:


"Sonnet 18" by William Shakespeare

Shall I compare thee to a summer's day?
Thou art more lovely and more temperate:
Rough winds do shake the darling buds of May,
And summer's lease hath all too short a date:
Sometime too hot the eye of heaven shines,
And often is his gold complexion dimm'd;
And every fair from fair sometime declines,
By chance, or nature's changing course, untrimm'd;
But thy eternal summer shall not fade
Nor lose possession of that fair thou ow'st;
Nor shall Death brag thou wander'st in his shade,
When in eternal lines to time though growst;
So long as men can breathe or eyes can see,
So long lives this, and this gives life to thee.

Sun stare, don't care with my head in my hands thinking of a simpler time
Like Sun Ra, feel small but I had it under control every time

When I was a waitress wearing a white dress
Look how I do this, look how I got this
I was a waitress working the night shift
You were my man, felt like I got this
Down at the Men in Music Business Conference
Down in Orlando, I was only 19
Down at the Men in Music Business Conference
I only mention it 'cause it was such a scene
And I felt seen
Mmh, mmh-mmh-mmh-mmh, mhm

Summer, sizzling
Listening to jazz out on the lawn
Listening to White Stripes when they were white-hot
Listening to rock, all day long

When I was a waitress wearing a tight dress, handling the heat
I wasn't famous, just listening to Kings of Leon to the beat
Like, look at how I got this
Look how I got this, just singing in the street
Down at the Men in Music Business Conference
I felt free 'cause I was only 19
Such a scene

Summer, summer's almost gone
We were talking about life, we were sitting outside 'til dawn
But I would still go back
If I could do it all again, I'd fly
Because it made me feel, made me feel like a god
'Cause it made me feel, made me feel like a god
Somehow it made me feel, made me feel like a god

When I was a waitress wearing a white dress
Look how I do this, look how I got this
I was a waitress working the night shift
You were my man, felt like I got this
Down at the Men in Music Business Conference
Down in Orlando, I was only 19
Down at the Men in Music Business Conference
I only mention it 'cause it was such a scene
And I felt seen
Mmh, mmh-mmh-mmh-mmh, mhm

When I was a waitress wearing a tight dress
Like, look how I do it, look how I got this
I was a waitress wearing a tight dress
Like, look who would do this, look who would got this

It made me feel, made me feel like a god
It kinda makes me feel, like maybe I was better off
'Cause it made me feel, made me feel like a god
Kinda makes me feel like maybe I was better off

The world is billions of years old and I'm somehow lucky enough to exist at the same time as Lana Del Rey.

Faiza Abdalla

Wow ❤

Tom's videos of random crap

Agreed. Lana is a goddess

Iain Robb

She is the best singer-songwriter of her generation. Critics of her must have been kicking themselves really hard when she dropped NFR.

Jess Rouse

It's so true ...

El mundo tiene 6 mil años, aunque nos hayan enseñado otra cosa.

No Grammy nomination for this song... I'm not surprised, but this is honestly one of her most profound, eclectic and intimate songs she's released. An absolute masterpiece. She truly takes you somewhere, especially the crescendo and how she sounds like she's almost whispering directly to you at the end.

BM

Stop equating Grammy with "good". It doesnt work like that

Desire Booke

We all know she didn’t need any award because we know how beautiful and talented/ beautifully she truly is and how she speaks when it comes to expressing herself with her experience in her music ❤️love you lana

Jose Melendez
