Lied van de week : week 1 - 2010

Cousins - Vampire Weekend


Dit is, na Horchata, al de tweede single uit het binnenkort te verschijnen album Contra van Vampire Weekend. Het is fijn uitkijken naar dat album, want deze opvolger voor het titelloze debuut bracht ons totnogtoe al twee hoogste aanstekelijke nummers. In dit nummer hoor je alvast ska, surf, vleugjes Afrikaanse blues à la Ali Farka Touré en nog veel meer...

Je vindt dit nummer op Contra, dat je hier kan bestellen. Je kan er trouwens het hele album voorbeluisteren...

Lyrics :

AYE AYE OH AH! AYE AYE OH AH! AYE AYE OH AH! AYE AYE AYE
AYE AYE OH AH! AYE AYE OH AH! AYE AYE OH AH! AYE AYE

You found a sweater on the ocean floor.
They're gonna find it if you didn't close the door.
You and the smart one sit outside to the side,
in a house on a street they wouldn't park on at night.

Dad - was a risk taker
his - was a shoe maker
you - greatest hits 2006 and a list maker

Gold's in the melody
You eat it to go
Oh, you were born with ten fingers
and you're gonna use 'em all.

Interest in girls as I discovered myself
If your odd-life was greater you'll be toastin' my health
If an interest in goats, you should be linin' the walls?

Me and my cousins and you and your cousins
it's a line that's always running

Me and my cousins and you and your cousins
I can feel it coming,

You can turn your back on the biddlewood
you can turn your back on the biddlewood

Me and my cousins and you and your cousins
it's a line that's always running
me and my cousins and you and your cousins
I can feel it coming
