She said “Wha’?”

21 04 2012

Just re-acquaniting myself with some Kate Nash music.

If you’re not familiar with her, I recommend “Birds” as a good introduction.

Kate Nash: Birds

She was waiting at the station
He was getting off the train
He didn’t have a ticket
So he had to bum through the barriers again

Well the ticket inspector saw him rushing through
He said “girl you don’t know how much I missed you but
We’d better run ’cause I haven’t got the funds to pay this fine.”
She said “fine”

Well so they ran out of the station and jumped onto a bus
With two of yesterdays travel cards and two bottles of Bud
And he said “you look well nice”

Well she was wearing a skirt
And he thought she looked nice
And yes, she didn’t really care about anything else
‘Cause she only wanted him to think that she looked nice
And he did

But he was looking at her, yeah all funny in the eye
She said “come on boy tell me what you’re thinking
Now don’t be shy.”
He said alright, “I’ll try:

“All the stars up in the sky
And the leaves in the trees
All the broken bits that make you trip up
And grassy bits in between
All the matter in the world is how much I like you.”

She said “what?”
He said “let me try and explain again

“Right, birds can fly so high
And they can shit on your head
And they can almost fly into your eye
And make you feel so scared.
But when you look at them
And you see that they’re beautiful
That’s how I feel about you

Right birds can fly so high
And they can shit on your head,
And they can almost fly into your eye
And make you feel well scared
But when you look at them
And you see that they’re beautiful
That’s how I feel about you
Yeah that’s how I feel about you.”

She said “what?”
He said “you”
She said “what are you talking about?”
He said “you”

Right birds can fly so high
And they can shit on your head
And they can almost fly into your eye
And make you feel so scared.
But when you look at them
And you see that they’re beautiful
That’s how I feel about you

Right birds can fly so high
And they can shit on your head
And they can almost fly into your eye
And make you feel well scared.
But when you look at them
And you see that they’re beautiful
That’s how I feel about you
Right, that’s how I feel about you

She said “thanks, I like you too”
He said “cool”
