Music for a Sushi Restaurant
Harry Styles Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Ba, ba-ba
Ba-ba, ba-ba

Green eyes, fried rice
I could cook an egg on you
Late night, game time
Coffee on the stove, yeah
You're sweet ice cream
But you could use a Flake or two
Blue bubblegum twisted 'round your tongue

I don't want you to get lost
I don't want you to go broke
I want you

It's 'cause I love you, babe
In every kind of way
Just a little taste
Know I love you, babe

Ba, ba-ba
Ba-ba, ba-ba
(You know I love you, babe)
Ba, ba-ba
Ba-ba, ba-ba

Excuse me, green tea
Music for a sushi restaurant
From ice on rice
Scuba-duba-do-boo-boo
Music for a sushi restaurant
Music for a sushi restaurant
Music for whatever you want
Scuba-duba-do-boo-boo

I'm not going to get lost
I'm not going to go broke
Staying cool
(Know I love you, babe)

Ba, ba-ba
Ba-ba, ba-ba
(You know I love you, babe)
Ba, ba-ba
Ba-ba, ba-ba

If the stars were edible
And our hearts were never full
Could we live with just a taste?
Just a taste

It's 'cause I love you, babe
In every kind of way
Just a little taste
Know I love you, babe

Ba, ba-ba
Ba-ba, ba-ba
(You know I love you, babe)




Ba, ba-ba
Ba-ba, ba-ba

​@@harryedwardstyles801I am not too sure, but I read somewhere that Niall and Harry have secret accounts which they use to interact with fans... Let me take this bet.

First I am a new Harry Styles follower since Grammy 2023.
I have since fallen in love with the Harry of 18, 19, and 25. (Skip for me the long haired Harry - he was little too aggressive, though like him as well).
As at now I am watching the 2022 Harry videos (trying to understand that weird fashion sense - I don't like it)
I have watched literally ALL Harry Style videos, read gossip etc
I am desperately in LOVE with Harry of 2017...
Funny part is I am 50year old woman.

But my 10year old daughter understands me.
I AM OLD BUT I KNOW WHAT I AM DOING...
saw an elderly lady with such placard.

I love Harry
