Diane Young
Vampire Weekend Lyrics


You torched a Saab like a pile of leaves
I'd gone to find some better wheels
Four or five meter running 'round the bend
When the government majors surround you again
If Diane Young won't change your mind
Baby, baby, baby, baby right on time

Out of control but you're playing a role
You think you can go to the eighteenth hole
Well, you flip-flop the day of the championship
Try to go it alone, you roll for a bit
If Diane Young won't change your mind
Baby, baby, baby, baby right on time

Baby, baby, baby, baby right on
Baby, baby, baby, baby right on
Baby, baby, baby it's a light on
Baby, baby, baby it's a lifetime
Baby, baby, baby baby right on
Time time time time time
Baby, baby, baby, baby right on time

Let 'em go
If Diane Young won't change your mind
Baby baby baby baby right on time

Irish and proud baby naturally
But you got the luck of a Kennedy
So grab the wheel, keep holding it tight
'Til you're driving off in the black of the night
If Diane Young won't change your mind
Baby, baby, baby, baby right on time

Baby, baby, baby, baby right on
Baby, baby, baby, baby right on
Baby, baby, baby it's a light on
Baby, baby, baby it's a lifetime
Baby, baby, baby, baby right on
Time time time time time
Baby baby baby baby right on time

Nobody knows what the future holds on
Said it's bad enough just getting old
Live my life, they say it's too fast
You know I love the past, 'cause I hate suspense
If Diane Young won't change your mind
Baby, baby, baby, baby right on time

Some of you are saying this video and the lyrics don't make sense. After listening to it a couple times my personal interpretation is that Diane Young is a homophone for "dying young". That's why the video shows a party scene to represent people who live dangerous lifestyles. Heck you saw that guy doing copious amounts of weed.
 Lets look at a verse;
"Irish and proud, baby, naturally
But you got the luck of a Kennedy
So grab the wheel, keep on holding it tight
'Til you're tottering off into that good night"

Irish alludes to the fact they can handle a lot of alcohol yet it goes on to say you have the luck of Kennedy, a president who was killed unexpectedly during a happy parade.

Basically this whole song is saying if you aren't afraid to die because of your poor declensions then then its going to happen soon, or as time flies when you are having fun it will be "right on time"

So if this is The Last Supper, then

the guy with the leather hat is Bartholemew
guy in the vest is James
girl in white is Andrew
guy with the dark suit and tie is Judas
guy in the shades and red shirt is Peter
guy with the guitar is John
Skimask = Jesus
Singer = Thomas
girl in black is James the Greater
guy with the red tie is Phillip
guy in the long-sleeved red shirt is Matthew
other guy with beard is Jude
and the guy with long hair and torn jeans is Simon

I like this song, but I don't know much about the band. What's this video mean for the fans?

Seriously contemplating how smart I am that it took me a few days to realize that "Diane Young" is "Dying Young"
