Attention Span
Rebelution Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning | Line by Line Meaning

Woah now now woah
Woah oh, woah oh, woah oh

Who can this be, this stranger at my door?
Although I know I've seen her once before
Come on, why can't I remember your name now
But in a way it's best that I don't say



It's a pleasure to meet ya
Once again for the night
I can't promise my focus
Is it me or is it my attention span?

Woah now now woah
I see the way you stare at me oh girl
I like the way you sway your hair and twirl
Come on, why can't I remember your name now
But in a way it's best that I don't say

It's a pleasure to meet ya
Once again for the night
I can't promise my focus
Is it me or is it my attention span?

Woah now now woah
Woah oh, woah oh, woah oh

Is this more than just routine?
Weigh it down on me
Give me more than just my needs
Weigh it down on me
And we're still riding high
And we're still riding high

I see the way you stare at me oh girl
I like the way you sway your hair and twirl
Come on, why can't I remember your name now
But in a way it's best that I don't say

It's a pleasure to meet ya
Once again for the night
I can't promise my focus
Is it me or is it my attention span?

Woah now now woah
Woah oh, woah oh, woah oh

Overall Meaning

The song 'Attention Span' by Rebelution is about meeting someone for the second time and not being able to remember their name. The narrator expresses their pleasure in meeting this person again but also acknowledges their short attention span by questioning whether it is them or their focus that is the issue. They still find the person attractive and enjoy being around them, but are also uncertain about the relationship's direction and feelings of routine.


The lyrics can be interpreted as a reflection on modern dating where attention spans are often short, and people are looking for instant gratification. The repetition of 'Woah now now woah' throughout the song highlights this sense of excitement but also short-lived interest. The song's catchy melody, upbeat tempo, and reggae-style backbeat reflect the positive energy of meeting someone new but also suggest an underlying sense of anxiety and uncertainty.


Overall, 'Attention Span' is a relatable song that touches on themes of attraction, connection, and uncertainty in relationships. It highlights the challenges of modern dating while also capturing the excitement and possibility of meeting someone new.

This is my youngest son's (6 yr-old) most favorite band....I can't tell you how many times their music has helped him calm down and rock back and forth (he has low-functioning autism).

I think I have high functioning autism but I'm too prideful to check. But this is some dead post revival right here.. 8 years ago.
