Have a Vampire Weekend


Vampire Weekend - A Punk


MELODY

Johanna drove slowly into the city
The Hudson River all filled with snow
She spied the ring on his honor’s finger
Oh oh oh

A thousand years in one piece of silver
She took it from his lily white hand
Showed no fear she’d seen the thing
In the young men’s wing at Sloan-Kettering

CHORUS

Look outside the raincoats gone, say oh!
Look outside the raincoats gone, say oh!


MELODY

His honor drove southward seeking exotica
Down to the Pueblo huts of New Mexico
Cut his teeth on turquoise harmonicas
Oh oh oh

I saw Johanna down in the subway
She took an apartment in Washington Heights
Half of the ring lies here with me
But the other half’s at the bottom of the sea

CHORUS

Look outside the raincoats gone, say oh!
Look outside the raincoats gone, say oh!
Look outside the raincoats gone, say oh!
Look outside the raincoats gone, say oh!

END


Vampire Weekend reminds me of some of the Ska bands that were popular back in the 1980s. The lyrics don't make much sense, but they don't have to with a beat like this. The video is quite entertaining. I especially like the little fishes near the end.

If you haven't already, you really should pick up the Vampire Weekend CD. They're the band it's popular to hate among the blogosphere right now, but the disc is quite good.
