Little Freak
Harry Styles Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Little freak, Jezebel
You sit high atop the kitchen counter
Stay green a little while
You bring blue lights to dreams
Starry haze, crystal ball
Somehow, you've become some paranoia
A wet dream just dangling
But your gift is wasted on me

I was thinkin' about who you are
Your delicate point of view
I was thinkin' about you
I'm not worried about where you are
Who you will go home to
I'm just thinkin' about you
Just thinkin' about you

Did you dress up for Halloween?
I spilled beer on your friend, I'm not sorry
A golf swing and a trampoline
Maybe we'll do this again
Tracksuit and a ponytail
You hide the body all that yoga gave you
Red wine and a ginger ale
But you would make fun of me for sure

I was thinkin' about who you are
Your delicate point of view
I was thinkin' about you
I'm not worried about where you are
Or who you will go home to
I'm just thinkin' about you

I disrespected you
Jumped in feet first and I landed too hard
A broken ankle, karma rules
You never saw my birthmark

I was thinkin' about who you are
Your delicate point of view
I was thinkin' about you
I'm not worried about where you are
Or who you will go home to
I'm just thinkin' about you




Just thinkin' about you
Just thinkin' about you

Overall Meaning

The lyrics of Harry Styles's Little Freak describe a woman who the singer is attracted to and intrigued by. The woman is described as a "little freak" and a "Jezebel", indicating that she is unconventional and perhaps sexually liberated. She sits "high atop the kitchen counter" and "brings blue lights to dreams", creating an ethereal and mystical aura. However, the singer admits that her "gift is wasted on me", suggesting that he may not be able to fully appreciate or understand her.


The song then explores the singer's thoughts about the woman, as he thinks about "who you are" and her "delicate point of view". He admits that he is "not worried about where you are/ Who you will go home to", indicating that he is not possessive or jealous, but simply curious about her. The lyrics also describe a moment when the two were together, perhaps on Halloween as there is a mention of dressing up, and the singer spilled beer on her friend.


However, the singer later admits to "disrespecting" the woman and "jumping in feet first" too quickly. He refers to a "broken ankle", perhaps as a metaphor for a painful outcome of their interaction. Despite this, the song ends with the singer still "just thinking about you", indicating that the woman has left a lasting impression on him.


Overall, Little Freak is a song about attraction, intrigue, and curiosity towards a woman who is described as unconventional and mystical.

Little freak, Jezebel
You sit high atop the kitchen counter
Stay green a little while
You bring blue lights to dreams
Starry haze, crystal ball
Somehow, you've become some paranoia
A wet dream just dangling
But your gift is wasted on me

I was thinkin' about who you are
Your delicate point of view, I
Was thinkin' about you
I'm not worried about where you are
Or who you will go home to, I'm
Just thinkin' about you
Just thinkin' about you

Did you dress up for Halloween?
I spilt beer on your friend, I'm not sorry
A golf swing and a trampoline
Maybe we'll do this again
Tracksuit and a ponytail
You hide the body, all that yoga gave you
Red wine and a ginger ale
But you would make fun of me, for sure

I was thinkin' about who you are
Your delicate point of view, I
Was thinkin' about you
I'm not worried about where you are
Or who you will go home to
I'm just thinkin' about you

I disrespected you
Jumped in feet first and I landed too hard

Your delicate point of view, I
Was thinkin' about you
I'm not worried about where you are
Or who you will go home to, I'm
Just thinkin' about you

Just thinkin' about you
Just thinkin' about you

Stay green a little while 
You bring blue lights to dreams 
Starry haze, crystal ball 
Somehow you’ve become some paranoia 
Wet dream just dangling 
But your gift is wasted on me 

[Chorus] 
I was thinking about who you are 
Your delicate point of view 
I’m just thinking about you


I’m not worried about where you are 
Who you go home to 
I’m just thinking about you 
Just thinking about you 

[Verse 2] 
Did you dress up for Halloween? 
I spilled beer on your friend, I’m not sorry 
A golf swing and a trampoline 
Maybe we’ll do this again 
Track suit and a ponytail 
You hide the body all that yoga gave you 
Red wine and a ginger ale 
But you would make fun of me for sure



[Chorus] 
I was thinking about who you are 
Your delicate point of view 
I was thinking about you

I love that with Harry, every song is unique and he truly writes from his heart so every song tells a story.

@eternallyhappy247

This song is so sad yet has a warm feel

@ashleymarks3726

"a sad song with happy chords" is how Charlie Puth would describe it. and he'd be right. it's sad but feels good.

@jacobtheyoutuberpop11

That's how I feel as well
