Pardon me sugar
I'm the man underneath your thumb
But I won't take your violence
And I won't chew your bubblegum

White heat, indiscreet, any day now obsolete
Know you've seen your best days
I will still walk down your empty street
Well you look like salvation but you taste like a refugee
You say you've got no soul but you look like you do to me

If I was the melody you were the symphony
Honey loving you took the very best of me
I don't need your red wine covered sympathy
Just another punchline in your stand up tragedy

Well I've been pushing up daisies
Just to catch a glimpse of something real
When I see you coming
I might just as well give up and kneel

Well if you saw me broken
Won't you put me out my misery
Well I don't do handsome
And you don't do sympathy
If I was the melody you were the symphony
Honey loving you took the very best of me
I don't need your red wine covered sympathy
Just another punchline in your stand up tragedy

Wrong from the get go
Let it slide
Tell them what they don't know
Sing those praises far and wide

Give those speeches
Ring them bells
Mama don't know what she preaches
But she sure looks dignified
Well she sure looks dignified
Well she sure looks dignified

If I was the melody you were the symphony
Honey loving you took the very best of me
I don't need your red wine covered sympathy
Just another punchline in your stand up tragedy

Take my only guarantee
I could be your slave if you'd only beg for me
I don't need your red wine covered sympathy
Just another punchline in your

Stand up
Sit down
Lie back
Turn round
Play dead
For me
Stand up tragedy

This band is terribly underrated

Paul Nelson

If they were part of the deep state, they would be a household name.

VinceTheLovableStoner

Their "DNA" are the lyrics. It always has been the same. Jon has just improved his writing skills. The new songs still make sense to the likes of costello music.
They still sound fancy as always, but their music became more melodic and maybe the new record fits better for the radio. I would find it kinda boring if they have made the same 5 records. That's why I love these guys, they always improve. Frat 6 will also sound different than "In your own sweet time".
So keep calm and thank f*ck for the Fratellis

Ryan Barnes

Walter Montiel That song isnt pop its mainstream rock.

Walter Montiel

Ray Ryngaert What's more mainstream pop than 'Chelsea Dagger', homedog?

Steve empire psych

VinceTheLovableStoner preach

Mims Mere3

"Keep calm and thank f*ck for the Fratellis" is perfect mug material. I'm getting that inked on my wrist. <3

The Absurd

This is a great comment. Jon Fratelli is one of the biggest influences for me as a songwriter. He's so salty and idiosyncratic. His solo album is one of my favorites ever. One thing that I've noticed here is that there's an over reliance on falsetto which grows old over four songs, and I hope to hell it's not every song. It's also a bit harder to understand his lyrics, but I don't mind hearing them switch it up. And I hope one of these tracks takes off, this band deserves to be far more popular.

Aftermath

I'm Korean and a big fan of The Fratellis, enough to have their three latest studio albums. and lots of their songs are used in the ads and broadcasting programs in korea, Nevertheless, I cannot see why they didn't well known yet in korea.
