Cape Cod Kwassa Kwassa
Vampire Weekend Lyrics


As a young girl
Louis Vuitton
With your mother
On a sandy lawn
As a sophomore
With reggaeton
And the linens
You're sitting on

Is your bed made?
Is your sweater on?
Do you want to fuck
Like you know I do?
Like you know I do-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh
Ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh

But this feels so unnatural
Peter Gabriel, too
But this feels so unnatural
Peter Gabriel

Can you stay up
To see the dawn
In the colors
Of Bennetton?

Is your bed made?
Is your sweater on?
Do you want to
Like you know I do?
Like you know I do-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh
Ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh

Feels so unnatural
Peter Gabriel, too
But this feels so unnatural
Peter Gabriel

Is your bed made?
Is your sweater on?
Do you wanna
Like you know I do?
Like you know I do-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh
Ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh

As a young girl, Louis Vuitton
With your mother on a sandy lawn
As a sophomore with reggaeton
And the linens you're sitting on
Is your bed made?
Is your sweater on?
Do you wanna fly?
Like you know I do, like you know I do, ooh
This feels so unnatural
, too
But this feels so unnatural
Peter Gabriel
Can you stay up to see the dawn
In the colors of Benetton?
Is your bed made?
Is your sweater on?
Do you wanna fly?
Like you know I do, like you know I do, ooh
This feels so unnatural
Peter Gabriel too
But this feels so unnatural
Peter Gabriel
Is your bed made?
Is your sweater on?
Do you wanna fly?
Like you know I do, like you know I do, ooh

i don't think Vampire Weekend have ever made a bad song! Literally all three albums has not one bad song. Not many bands can do that shit 

normalwerido

It's cause they are Ivy League. Really they met at Columbia U.

End Cycle

I like FOTB but I still think the first two albums are the best!

Matthew Jury

Totally objective professor

Evangelionlovr

FOTB, to me, feels like their natural evolution. It’s incredible.

Love this song! I know this is random info, but "Kwassa Kwassa" is a type of dance found in the Democratic Republic of Congo. It's commonly associated with the music genre "Soukous" or African Rumba, which is where the guitar melody in this song got its influence. 

...lol ok, I'm done showing my Africanness #noimnot

@lawnjelly it’s literally Franco style 🤣🤣🤣

BANGA2TIMEZ

@lawnjelly this is rumba guitar it’s copy and paste of rumba congolaise you’re thinking of soukous guitar which is fast paced

lawnjelly

Yes and although this has kwassa kwassa in the title, the guitar is not so much like congolese style (but I suppose it is called cape cod :) ). If you are interested in soukous try e.g. kanda bongo man, tabu ley rochereau, yondo sister, mbilia bel, diblo, pepe kalle etc etc. 80s / early 90s was best for me.
