You Only Live Once
The Strokes Lyrics


Some people think they're always right
Others are quiet and uptight
Others they seem so very nice, nice, nice, nice, nice, oh
Inside they might feel sad and wrong, oh no
Twenty-nine different attributes
Only seven that you like, oh
Twenty ways to see the world, oh
Twenty ways to start a fight, oh

Oh, don't, don't, don't, get up
I can't see the sunshine
I'll be waiting for you, baby
'Cause I'm through
Sit me down
Shut me up
I'll calm down
And I'll get along with you

Oh, men don't notice what they got
Oh, women think of that a lot
One thousand ways to please your man, oh
Not even one requires a plan, I know
And countless odd religions, too
It doesn't matter which you choose, oh no
One stubborn way to turn your back, oh
Oh, this I've tried and now refuse, oh

Oh, don't, don't, don't, get up
I can't see the sunshine
Oh, I'll be waiting for you, baby
'Cause I'm through
Sit me down
Shut me up
I'll calm down
And I'll get along with you, alright

Shut me up
Shut me up
And I'll get along with you

Lyrics
Some people think they're always right
Others are quiet and uptight
Others, they seem so very nice-nice-nice-nice, oh
Inside they might feel sad and wrong, oh, no

Twenty-nine different attributes
Only seven that you like, oh-oh
Twenty ways to see the world, oh
And twenty ways to start a fight, oh

Oh don't, don't, don't get up
I can't see the sunshine
I'll be waiting for you, baby
'Cause I'm through
Sit me down
Shut me up
I'll calm down
And I'll get along with you

Oh, men don't notice what they got
Oh, women think of that a lot
One thousand ways to please your man, oh
Not even one requires a plan, I know

And countless odd religions too
It doesn't matter which you choose, oh, no
One stubborn way to turn your back, oh
This I've tried and now refuse, oh

Oh don't, don't, don't get up

Oh, I'll be waiting for you, baby
'Cause I'm through
Sit me down
Shut me up
I'll calm down
And I'll get along with you

Alright
Shut me up, shut me up
And I'll get along with you

SABÍAS QUE:

El estanque en el que se grabó el video de "You Only Live Once" de #TheStrokes representa los pulmones de los miembros de la banda y el líquido que los ahoga lentamente mientras tocan, es el alquitrán del cigarro llenando sus pulmones.

Julian Casablancas declaró respecto al significado del video:

"People tell us all the time we're gonna die from smoking, but you only live once."

“La gente nos dice todo el tiempo que moriremos por fumar mucho, pero ni modo, tú sólo vives una vez”.

LYRICS:

Some people think they're always right
Others are quiet and uptight
Others they seem so very nice (nice nice nice oh-ho)
Inside they might feel sad and wrong (oh no)

Twenty-nine different attributes
Only seven that you like (oh-ho)
Twenty ways to see the world (oh-ho)
Are twenty ways to start a fight (oh-ho)

(Oh, don't, don't) don't get out
I can't see the sunshine
I'll be waiting for you, baby
'Cause I'm through
Sit me down
Shut me up
I'll calm down
And I'll get along with you

Oh men don't notice what they got
Women think of that a lot
A thousand ways to please your man (oh-ho)
Not even one requires a plan (I know)

(And) countless odd religions too
It doesn't matter which you choose (oh, no)
One stubborn way to turn your back (oh-ho)
This I've tried, and I refuse (oh-ho)

(Don't, don't) don't get out
I can't see the sunshine
I'll be waiting for you, baby
'Cause I'm fool
Sit me down
Shut me up
I'll calm down
And I'll get along with you

(Alright)

Shut me up
Shut me up
And I'll get along with you

Today is my first time listening to The Strokes. I came across them while researching strokes for my Neuro exam tomorrow 😂. Sooooo glad I found them, this song has been on repeat ever since.

Xevo234

so here I am, 1 month after you, first time I hear The Strokes, after couple of songs I really like the vibe. The funny thing I found them by finding The Lonely Island song Boombox where the singer from The Strokes sings

Okifurbi

And next time you are looking for a Mexican recipe you'll discover the Red Hot Chilli Peppers.

SweetChick10101

That is excellent. If you haven’t listened already, Is This It and Comedown Machine are amazing albums 😍
