First It Giveth
Queens of the Stone Age Lyrics


I'm in you
You're in me
I can't tell

You're so cruel
More than me
It is true
That's right

Loyal to
Only you
Up your sleeve

I want some (come on, take it)
Of all of you (it's yours)
Trickin' me

First it give'th
Then it take'th away

I would beg
I would plead
I would shake

On a hook
Dangling
By the way

I'm so young
And beautiful
(That's right)
(I'm slick)
I'm no fool

Time goes by
Tables turn
Now I know

First it give'th
Then it take'th away

"First It Giveth"

I'm in you
You're in me
I can't tell

You're so cruel
More than me
It is true
That's right

Loyal to
Only you
Up your sleeve

I want some (come on, take it)
of all of you (it's yours)
Trickin me

First it giveth
Then it taketh away

I would beg
I would plead
I would shake

On a hook
Dangling
By the way

I'm so young
And beautiful
(That's right)
(I'm slick)
I'm no fool

Time goes by
Tables turn
Now I know 

First it giveth
Then it taketh away

"I would" repeats (technically counts as rhyming)

Slant rhymes:

plead and (dang)-ling have the same -ee sound

shake and way have the same -ay sound

so and alone have the same -oh sound


Beautiful and Fool is a syllabic rhyme (and kind of a head rhyme since -ful and fool start with the same letter)


There's plenty of rhyming in there, but yeah not just going with simplistic tail rhymes does make it sound better



Ricardo Lugo

Yo estoy en ti,
Ahora en mi
No puedo decir

Eres tan cruel
Mas que yo
Es verdad

Leal a
Solo ustedes
Bajo la manga

Quiero un poco
De todos ustedes
Engañándome

Primero lo dio, luego lo quitó
Primero lo dio, luego lo quitó
Primero lo dio, luego lo quitó
Primero lo dio, luego lo quitó

Yo suplicaría
Yo rogaría
Yo temblaría


En un gancho,
Columpiado,
Bien despierto

Soy muy joven
Y hermoso
No soy tonto

El tiempo pasa,
Las cosas cambian
Todo lo que sé

Primero lo dio, luego lo quitó
Primero lo dio, luego lo quitó
Primero lo dio, luego lo quitó
Primero lo dio, luego lo quitó
Primero lo dio, luego lo quitó
Lo quitó
Lo quitó

My son was 4 back then. Headbanging in the back seat of my car. I played this album at least 500 times.
He is 22 now.
And he loves me for it. It's nostalgia for him, he says.
