The Kids Don't Stand a Chance
Vampire Weekend Lyrics


A devastating backstroke
All the way from France
With shiny, shiny cufflinks
A shirtsleeve to enhance

The pin-striped men of morning
Are coming for to dance
With pure Egyptian cotton
The kids don't stand a chance
You criticize the practice
By murdering their plants
Ignoring all the history
Denying them romance

The pin-striped men of morning
Are coming for to dance
Forty-million dollars
The kids don't stand a chance

I didn't like the business
But that was at first glance
Your pillow feels so soft now
But still you must advance

The pin-striped men of morning
The partners in the dance
The paper's shot to pieces
The kids don't stand a chance

[Verse 1]
A devastating backstroke
All the way from France
With shiny, shiny cufflinks
A shirtsleeve to enhance

[Chorus 1]
The pin-striped men of morning
Are coming forward to dance
With pure Egyptian Cotton
The kids don't stand a chance

[Verse 2]
You criticize the practice
By murdering their plants
Ignoring all the history
Denying them romance

[Chorus 2]
The pin-striped men of morning
Are coming forward to dance
Forty-million dollars
The kids don't stand a chance

[Verse 3]
I didn't like the business
But that was at first glance
Your pillow feels so soft now
But still you must advance

[Chorus 3]
The pin-striped men of morning
The partners in the dance
The paper's shot to pieces
The kids don't stand a chance

@LogicPlaysUSA ? lol people watch videos all the time off wifi such as in the subway, ubers, school, work, etc... so thus using data to watch videos, I mean by no means is it practical but when in dire times data consumption does become a member of the itinerary

LogicPlaysUSA

@Jon H Im not disagreeing with you on that, I meant why would anyone use their data to watch videos excluding it being unlimited?

Jon H

@LogicPlaysUSA cell phone data, people look up lyrics to songs and some providers don't use it so then they google it then find it on some lyric website like lyric genius which if they don't have AdBlock them they get hit with ads on that website and thus hits their cell phone data plan which unless is unlimited data plan which are ceasing to exist in 2021 or they on wifi, it's really simple logic

LogicPlaysUSA

@Jon H why would anyone waste their data on this? data is kind of expensive

Jon H

@LogicPlaysUSA this is rather convenient and less data consumption, why knock it
