The Adults Are Talking
The Strokes Lyrics


They've been sayin', "You're sophisticated"
They're complainin', overeducated
You are saying all the words I'm dreaming
Say it after me
Say it after me
They will blame us, crucify and shame us
We can't help it if we are a problem
We are tryin' hard to get your attention
I'm climbin' up your wall
Climbin' up your wall

Don't go there 'cause you'll never return
I know you think of me when you think of her
But then it don't make sense when you're tryin' hard
To do the right thing but without recompense
And then you did something wrong and you said it was great
And now you don't know how you could ever complain
Because you're all confused 'cause you want me to
But then you want me to do it the same as you

You were waitin' for the elevator
You were sayin' all the words I'm dreaming
No more askin' questions or excuses
Information's here
Here and everywhere

Don't go there 'cause you'll never return
I know you think of me when you think of her
But then it don't make sense when you're tryin' hard
To do the right thing but without recompense
And then you did something wrong and you said it was great
And now you don't know how you could ever complain
Because you're all confused 'cause you want me to
But then you want me to do it the same way as you, and, but

I don't, I don't want anything
I know it's not, it's not your fault
I don't want anyone
Always I do, it's not for you

Ah
Ooh

Stockholders
Same shit, a different lie
I'll get it right sometime
Oh, maybe not tonight
Oh, maybe not tonight
Oh, maybe not tonight
Oh, maybe not tonight
Oh, maybe not tonight

Hello?
Yeah, boy, here we go
And a-one, and a-two, and a-three
Here we go, friends
Hold on, I can't-
Maybe that's kooky situation
So, let's go back to the old key, old tempo, everything
Okay

Lyrics :

They've been sayin', you're sophisticated
They're complaining, over-educated
You are saying all the words I'm dreaming
Say it after me
Say it after me

They will blame us, crucify, and shame us
We can't help it, if we are a problem
We are trying hard to get your attention
Climbing up your wall
Climbing up your wall

Don't go there, 'cause you'll never return
I know you think of me, when you think of her
But then it don't make sense when you're trying hard
To do the right thing but without recompense
And then you did something wrong and you said it was great
And now you don't know how you could ever complain
Because you're all confused, 'cause you want me to
But then you want me to do it the same as you

You were waiting for the elevator
You were saying, all the words I'm dreaming
No more asking, questions or excuses
Information's here, here and everywhere

Don't go there, 'cause you'll never return
I know you think of me, when you think of her
But then it don't make sense when you're trying hard
To do the right thing but without recompense
And then you did something wrong and you said it was great
And now you don't know how you could ever complain
Because you're all confused, 'cause you want me to
But then you want me to do it the same way as you, well, but

I don't, I don't want anything
I know it's not, it's not your fault
I don't want anyone
As I do, it's not for you

Stockholders
Same shit, a different life
I'll get it right some time
Maybe not tonight
Maybe not tonight
Maybe not tonight
Maybe not tonight

[Verse 1]
They've been sayin' you're sophisticated
They're complainin', overeducated
You are saying all the words I'm dreaming
Say it after me
Say it after me
They will blame us, crucify and shame us
We can't help it if we are a problem
We are tryin' hard to get your attention
I'm climbin' up your wall
Climbin' up your wall

[Chorus]
Don't go there 'cause you'll never return
I know you think of me when you think of her
But then it don't make sense when you're trying hard
To do the right thing, but without recompense
And then you did something wrong and you said it was great
And now you don't know how you could ever complain
Because you're all confused 'cause you want me to
But then you want me to do it the same as you

im actually surprised that people arent heavily gatekeeping the strokes. this is the first ever fanbase that hasnt been toxic because tiktok boosted an artists fame.

Sierra Melody

Everyone in the English speaking word knows the strokes

Luminisant

@Optim Yeah, but one look at the comments section proves that it's recently getting infested with kids.

Luminisant

@Ja'Quandre Jones Not true at all. Arctic Monkeys alone is 3x as popular.

bsasxoxo

TikTok boosted The Strokes fame??? They were HUGE long before Tik Tok even existed!!

When you’re a kid, you have it all. You can be anything or be anyone - at least it feels that way. You’re on top of the world - and yet at the same time you’re still just a kid...

Eve_Squared

@AceDoode Trust me i've been trying to find a way to play again for a long time now.

AceDoode

@Eve_Squared oh, well that's.. yeah. but still you could find something to replace it, don't let it bring you down

Eve_Squared

@AceDoode no, sadly not for me, my hands can't play an instrument anymore as far as i've tried. I have a chronic illness that affects my joints and I stopped playing because I was in too much pain. I spent thousands of hours playing music just to lose it all.

AceDoode

@Eve_Squared don't stop believing, they are possible if you believe
