i'll try anything once
The Strokes Lyrics


Ten decisions shape your life
You'll be aware of five about
Seven ways to go through school
Either you're noticed or left out
Seven ways to get ahead
Seven reasons to drop out
When I said, "I can see me in your eyes"
You said, "I can see you in my bed"
That's not just friendship, that's romance, too
You like music we can dance to

Sit me down, shut me up
I'll calm down and I'll get along with you

There is a time when we all fail
Some people take it pretty well
Some take it all out on themselves
Some, they just take it out on friends
Oh, everybody plays the game
And if you don't, you're called insane

Don't, don't, don't, don't, it's not safe no more
I've got to see you one more time
That's when you were born in 1984

Sit me down, shut me up
I'll calm down and I'll get along with you

Everybody was well dressed
And everybody was a mess
Six things without fail you must do
So that your woman loves just you
Oh, all the girls played mental games
And all the guys were dressed the same

Why not try it all
If you only remember it once?
Ooh, ooh

Sit me down, shut me up
I'll calm down and I'll get along with you

(Okay, one more time)

"Ten decisions shape your life,
You'll be aware of 5 about,
7 ways to go through school,
Either you're noticed or left out,
7 ways to get ahead,
7 reasons to drop round,
When I said ' I can see me in your eyes',
You said 'I can see you in my bed',
That's not just friendship that's romance too,
You like music we can dance to,

Sit me down,
Shut me up,
I'll calm down,
And I'll get along with you,

There is a time when we all fail,
Some people take it pretty well,
Some take it all out on themselves,
Some they just take it out on friends,
Oh everybody plays the game,
And if you don't you're called insane,

Don't don't don't don't it's not safe no more,
I've got to see you one more time,
Soon you were born,
In 1984,

Sit me down,
Shut me up,
I'll calm down,
And I'll get along with you,

Everybody was well dressed,
And everybody was a mess,
6 things without fail you must do,
So that your woman loves just you,
Oh all the girls played mental games,
And all the guys were dressed the same,

Why not try it all,
If you only remember it once,
Ooh ooh,

Sit me down,
Shut me up,
I'll calm down,
And I'll get along with you,

(Okay one more time)"

I hold this song very dearly to my heart. I don't know why. It's just one of those songs that makes you rethink all of your decisions and spend your whole day in bed.
