Modern Girls & Old Fashion Men
The Strokes Lyrics


You were
Modern girls always have to go (Right on time)
Old-fashioned men always want a mistress (You were right)
Modern girls always get their way (I was wrong)
Modern men dream of what they can't say (That's alright)
Right? Right? Right? Right? Right?
I don't belong (I don't belong)

Why you gotta say it if you know it's something wrong? (Why're you sitting over there?)
Says that he'll apologize and it won't take too long
Well, you don't wanna trust nobody else (Always thinking 'bout yourself)

(Time)
There's a few things that are gonna have to change (I'm your son)
Everyone has the same opinion (Won't you please?)
Your time is almost over (Don't be mean)
We won't get the chance to do this over (That's alright)
Right? Right? Right? Right? Right?
I don't belong (I don't belong)

I don't want the imprint of your key upon my nose (Why're you sitting over there?)
You don't have to tell no one 'cause no one wants to know
That you don't have no happiness at all (Always thinking 'bout yourself)

Oh yes, we're falling down
Oh yes, we're falling down
Oh yes, we're falling down
Oh yes, we're falling down
Oh yes, we're falling down
Oh yes, we're falling down
Oh yes, we're falling down
So fucking help me up

Always thinking 'bout yourself (You don't love me)
Always thinking 'bout yourself (I am an animal)
Always thinking 'bout yourself (I am not practical)

Was I?

You were (right)
Modern girls always have to go (right on time.)
Old-fashion men always want a mistress (you were right)
Modern girls always get their way (I was wrong.)
Modern men dream of what they can't say (that's alright)
That's alright (I don't belong)
I don't belong


(Why you sitting over there?) why you gotta say it if you know it's sounding wrong
Says that he'll apologize and it won't take too long
(Always thinking about yourself) you don't wanna trust nobody else


(Time)
There's a few things that are gonna have to change (I'm your son)
Everyone has the same opinion (won't you please)
Your time is almost over (don't be mean)
We won't get the chance to do this over (that's alright) alright
(I don't belong) I don't belong


(Why you sitting over there?) I don't want the imprint of your key upon my nose
We don't have to tell no one, cuz no one wants to know
(Always thinking about yourself) you don't have no hapiness at home


Oh yes, we're falling down (oh yes, we're falling down)
Oh yes, we're falling down (oh yes, we're falling down)
Oh yes, we're falling down (oh yes, we're falling down)
Yes, we're falling down (oh yes, we're falling down)


Oh yes, we're falling down (oh yes we're falling down)
Oh yes, we're falling down (oh yes we're falling down)
Oh yes, we're falling down (oh yes we're falling down)
So fuck and help me up (so fuck and help me up)


(You don't love me) always thinking about yourself
(I am an animal) always thinking about yourself
(I'm not practical) always thinking about yourself


Was I?

Destroucs no because some people have varied taste I love the song but it took me time to get used to the collab some people never will. That doesn’t mean they suck. If you think they suck maybe you should look at your self and stop placing harsh judgement on others.

The more I hear Regina in this song, the more I get convinced that she is the one who made the final falsetto in "call it fate, call it karma". It's the same range, awesome voice!
They should do another collab.
