Lily Allen Songtext: Friend Of Mine

Lily Allen Songtext: Friend Of Mine

I don’t want us to have a fight
But in the background I can hear you chatting shite!
I hear it every night

And you think you’re being really cool
And you’ve been doing it since we were both at school
Now who looks like a fool?

You’re no friend of mine, girl
And I’ve known it for a while, girl
You’re just a waste of time, girl
Why don’t you have another line, girl?

Tell me, what did you expect?
Have you got no self-respect?
Reputation to protect?
Soon you’ll be a nervous wreck

Tell me, what did you expect?
Have you got no self-respect?
Reputation to protect?
Soon you’ll be a nervous wreck

What happened to the good old days?
I was kinda hoping this was all a stupid phase
Who are you anyway?
I know you’ve heard this all before
I know some people who are calling you a whore
Don’t know you any more

You’re no friend of mine, girl
And I’ve known it for a while, girl
You’re just a waste of time, girl
Why don’t you have another line, girl?

Tell me, what did you expect?
Have you got no self-respect?
Reputation to protect?
Soon you’ll be a nervous wreck

Tell me, what did you expect?
Have you got no self-respect?
Reputation to protect?
Soon you’ll be a nervous wreck

Tell me, what did you expect?
Have you got no self-respect?
Reputation to protect?
Soon you’ll be a nervous wreck

Tell me, what did you expect?
Have you got no self-respect?
Reputation to protect?
Soon you’ll be a nervous wreck

Lily Allen Songtext: Take What You Take

Lily Allen Songtext: Take What You Take

A picture paints a thousand words
As one door closes, another door opens
And two wrongs don’t make a right
Now good things come to those who wait
Take the highs with the lows dear
You’ll get what you’re given
And everything’s gonna be alright

What the fuck do you know?
Just ‚cos you’re old you think you’re wise
But who the hell are you though?
I didn’t even ask for your advice
You wanna keep your mouth shut?
You wanna take your thoughts elsewhere
Cos you’re doing in my nut (??)
And do you think I care?

Say what you say
Do what you do
Feel what you feel
As long as it’s real

I said take what you take
And give what you give
Just be what you want
Just as long as it’s real

Now by a horse, I once was told
That all that glitters is not gold
And all that is to fear is fear itself.

This horsey also told me
I should keep my friends close
but keep my enemies closer
So as to protect myself

What the fuck do you know?
Just ‚cos you’re old you think your wise
Who the hell are you though?
I didn’t even ask for your advice
You wanna keep your mouth shut?
You wanna take your thoughts elsewhere
Cos you’re doing in my nut?
And do you think I care?

Say what you say
Do what you do
Feel what you feel
As long as it’s real

I said take what you take
And give what you give
Just be what you want
Just as long as it’s real

Say what you say
Do what you do
Feel what you feel
As long as it’s real

I said take what you take
And give what you give
Just be what you want
Just as long as it’s real

Say what you say
Do what you do
Feel what you feel
As long as it’s real

I said take what you take
And give what you give
Just be what you want
Just as long as it’s real

Lily Allen Songtext: Alfie

Lily Allen Songtext: Alfie

Oh, Oh deary me
My little brother’s in his bedroom smoking weed
I tell him he should get up ‚cos it’s nearly half past three
He can’t be bothered ‚cos he’s high on THC

I ask him very nicely if he’d like a cup of tea
I can’t even see him ‚cos his room is so smoky
Don’t understand how one can watch so much TV
My baby brother Alfie how I wish that you could see

I only say it ‚cos I care
So please can you stop pulling my hair?
Now, now there’s no need to swear
Please don’t despair my dear Mon frère

Oh Alfie get up it’s a brand new day
I just can’t sit back and watch you waste your life away
You need to get a job because the bills need to get paid
Get off your lazy arse, Alfie please use your brain

Surely there’s some walls out there that you can go and spray
I’m feeling guiltier for leading you astray
Now how the hell do you ever expect that you’ll get laid
When all you do is stay and play in your computer games?

I only say it ‚cos I care
So please can you stop pulling my hair?
Now, now there’s no need to swear
Please don’t despair my dear Mon frère

Oh little brother please refrain from doing that.
I’m tryin‘ to help you out so can you stop being a twat?
It’s time that you and I sat down and had a little chat
And look me in the eyes take off that stupid fitted cap

I only say it ‚cos I care
So please can you stop pulling my hair?
Now, now there’s no need to swear
Please don’t despair
Please don’t despair
My mon frère

Lily Allen Songtext: Littlest Things

Lily Allen Songtext: Littlest Things

Sometimes I find myself sittin‘ back and reminiscing
Especially when I have to watch other people kissing
And I remember when you started callin‘ me your „Misses“
All the play fighting, all the flirtatious disses

I tell you sad stories about my childhood
I don’t know why I trusted you but I knew that I could
We’d spend the whole weekend lying in our own dirt
I was just so happy in your boxers and your t-shirt

Dreams, dreams
Of when we had just started things
Dreams of you and me
and it seems, it seems
That I can’t shake those memories
I wonder if you have the same dreams, too

The littlest things that take me there
I know it sounds lame but its so true
I know it’s not right, but it seems unfair
That things are reminding me of you

Sometimes I wish we could just pretend
Even if for only one weekend
So come on, tell me, is this the end?

Drinkin‘ tea in bed, watching DVDs
When I discovered all your dirty grotty magazines
You take me out shopping and all we’d buy is trainers
As if we ever needed anything to entertain us.

The first time that you introduced me to your friends
And you could tell that I was nervous so you held my hand
When I was feeling down, you made that face you do
There’s no one in the world who could replace you.

Dreams, dreams
Of when we had just started things
Dreams of me and you
And it seems, it seems
That I can’t shake those memories
I wonder if you feel the same way, too

The littlest things that take me there
I know it sounds lame but its so true
I know it’s not right, but it seems unfair
That things are reminding me of you

Sometimes I wish we could just pretend
Even if for only one weekend
So come on, tell me, is-this-the-end?

na na na na na naaa

Lily Allen Songtext: Shame For You

Lily Allen Songtext: Shame For You

I’ve been thinking that you’ve crossed the line
If you disappear that will be just fine
‚Cause you waste my time and waste my money
And you’re not too cool and not so funny
Spreading your seed all over the town
Getting too greedy and messing around
Oh my gosh, you must be joking me
If you think that you’ll be poking me

Don’t take me on, no, no
Don’t take me on, no, no
Don’t take me on

Shattered the lie but you think I don’t already know
Don’t try to deny, cause my fuse is ready to blow
It’s your turn to learn, I think that you know where to go
It’s a shame, shame, shame, shame for you!

Please don’t come around and knock on my door
‚Cause I don’t want to have to pick you up off the floor
When you ask if we can still be lovers
I’ll have to introduce my brothers
I think that they could teach you a lesson or two
By the time they’ve finished you’ll be black and blue
You’ll be crying like a baby
A sea of tears, they’ll call the navy in

Don’t take me on, no, no
Don’t take me on, no, no
Don’t take me on

Shattered the lie but you think I don’t already know
Don’t try to deny ‚cause my fuse is ready to blow
It’s your turn to learn, I think that you know where to go
It’s a shame, shame, shame, shame for you

Don’t take me on, no, no
Don’t take me on, no, no
Don’t take me on

No no no no no no no
No no no no no no no

Don’t take me on, no, no
Don’t take me on, no, no
Don’t take me on

Shattered the lie but you think I don’t already know
Don’t try to deny ‚cause my fuse is ready to blow
It’s your turn to learn, I think that you know where to go
It’s a shame, shame, shame, shame for you
Shame, shame, shame, shame for you

Lily Allen Songtext: Friday Night

Lily Allen Songtext: Friday Night

Friday night, last orders at the pub
Get in the car and drive to the club
There’s a massive crowd outside so we get into the queue
It’s quarter past eleven now, we won’t get in ‚till quarter two

It’s quarter two and we get to the front
Girl on the guest list dressed like a „…“

She asked security to check inside my shoes
You can play this game with me, but you know you’re gonna lose

Looked me up and down
I don’t make a sound
There’s a lesson that I want you to learn
It’s if you’re gonna play with fire then you’re gonna get burned!

Don’t try and test me ‚cos you’ll get a reaction
Another drink and I’m ready for action
I don’t know who you think you are
But making people scared won’t get you very far

In the club, make our way to the bar
Good dancing love, but you should have worn a bra
Guy on the mic and he’s making too much noise
There’s these girls in the corner want attention from the boys

I see these girls and they’re shouting through the crowd
Don’t understand why they’re being really loud
Make their way over to me and try to push me out the way
I push her back, she looks at me and says, „What you try to say?“

Looked me up and down
I don’t make a sound
There’s a lesson that I want you to learn
It’s if you’re gonna play with fire then you’re gonna get burned

Don’t try and test me ‚cos you’ll get a reaction
Another drink and I’m ready for action
I don’t know who you think you are
But making people scared won’t get you very far

Don’t try and test me ‚cos you’ll get a reaction
Another drink and I’m ready for action
I don’t know who you think you are
But making people scared won’t get you very far

Lily Allen Songtext: Everything’s Just Wonderful

Lily Allen Songtext: Everything’s Just Wonderful

Do you think, everything, everyone, is going mental?
It seems to me that it’s spiralling outta control and it’s inevitable
Now don’t you think
This time is yours, this time is mine?
It’s temperamental
It seems to me, we’re on all fours
Crawling on our knees
Someone help us please

Oh Jesus Christ almighty
Do I feel alright? No not slightly
I wanna get a flat I know I can afford it
It’s just the bureaucrats who won’t give me a mortgage

It’s very funny cos I got your fuckin‘ money
And I’m never gonna get it just ‚cause of my bad credit
Oh well I guess I mustn’t grumble
I suppose that’s just the way the cookie crumbles.

Oh yes, I’m fine
Everything’s just wonderful
I’m having the time of my life

Don’t you want something else?
Something new, than what we’ve got here
And don’t you feel it’s all the same,
Some sick game and it’s not insincere?
I wish I could change the ways of the world
Make it a nice place
Until that day, I guess we stay
Doing what we do
Screwing who we screw

Why can’t I sleep at night?
Don’t say it’s gonna be alright
I wanna be able to eat spaghetti bolognaise
And not feel bad about it for days and days and days

In the magazines they talk about weight loss
If I buy those jeans I can look like Kate Moss
Oh no it’s not the life that I chose
But I guess that’s the way that things go

Oh yes, I’m fine
Everything’s just wonderful
I’m having the time of my life

Oh yes, I’m fine
Everything’s just wonderful
I’m having the time of my life

Ba ba ba ba ba ba ba ba ba [etc.]

Oh Jesus Christ almighty
Do I feel alright? No not slightly
I wanna get a flat I know I can afford it
It’s just the bureaucrats that won’t give me a mortgage

It’s very funny cos I got your fuckin‘ money
And I’m never gonna get it just because of my bad credit
Oh well I guess I mustn’t grumble
I suppose that’s just the way the cookie crumbles

Well I guess it’s just the way that things go
I suppose it’s the way the cookie crumbles
Well I guess it’s just the way that things go
I suppose that’s the way the cookie crumbles

Lily Allen Songtext: LDN

Lily Allen Songtext: LDN

Riding through the city on my bike all day
Cause the filth took away my license.
It doesn’t get me down and I feel O.K.
Cause the sights that I’m seeing are priceless.

Everything seems to look as it should
But I wonder what goes on behind doors.
A fella looking dapper, but he’s sitting with a slapper
Then I see it’s a pimp and his crack whore.

You might laugh, you might frown
Walking ‚round London town

Sun is in the sky, oh why, oh why
Would I wanna be anywhere else?
Sun is in the sky, oh why, oh why
Would I wanna be anywhere else?

When you look with your eyes
Everything seems nice
But if you look twice
You can see it’s all lies

There was a little old lady who was walking down the road
She was struggling with bags from Tesco
There were people from the city having lunch in the park
I believe that it’s called al Fresco

When a kid came along to offer a hand
But before she had time to accept it
Hits her over the head, doesn’t care if she’s dead
Cause he’s got all her jewelery and wallet

You might laugh, you might frown
Walking ‚round London town

Sun is in the sky, oh why, oh why
Would I wanna be anywhere else?
Sun is in the sky, oh why, oh why
Would I wanna be anywhere else?

When you look with your eyes
Everything seems nice
But if you look twice
You can see it’s all lies

Life, yeah that’s city life, yeah that’s city life, yeah that’s city life
Life, yeah that’s city life, yeah that’s city life, yeah that’s city life

Sun is in the sky, oh why, oh why
Would I wanna be anywhere else?
Sun is in the sky, oh why, oh why
Would I wanna be anywhere else?

Sun is in the sky, oh why, oh why
Would I wanna be anywhere else?
Sun is in the sky, oh why, oh why
Would I wanna be anywhere else?

When you look with your eyes
Everything seems nice
But if you look twice
You can see it’s all lies

When you look with your eyes
Everything seems nice
But if you look twice
You can see it’s all lies

Lily Allen Songtext: Knock ‚Em Out

Lily Allen Songtext: Knock ‚Em Out

Alright so this is a song about anyone, it could be anyone
You’re just doing your own thing and someone comes out of the blue
They’re like,“Alright What are ya saying?
Yeah can I take your digits?“
And you’re like, „No not in a million years, you’re nasty
Please leave me alone“

Cut to the pub on a lad’s night out
Man at the bar cause it was his shout
Clocks this bird and she looked OK
She caught him looking and walked his way
„Alright darlin‘, you gonna buy us a drink then?“
„Er no, but I was thinking about buying one for your friend“

She’s got no taste, hand on his waist
Tries to pull away but her lips on his face
„If you insist I’ll have a white wine spritzer“
„Sorry love, but you ain’t a pretty picture“

You can’t knock ‚em out, you can’t walk away
Try desperately to think of the politest way to say
Just get out my face, just leave me alone
And no you can’t have my number, „Why?“ Cause I lost my phone

„Oh yeah, actually yeah um, I’m pregnant
Um, yeah I’m having a baby in like 6 months so no, yeah, yeah“

I recognize this guy’s way of thinking
As he walks over her face starts sinking
She’s like, „Oh here we go“
It’s a routine check that she already knows,
She’s thinking, „They’re all the same“

„Yeah you alright baby? You look alright still, yeah what’s your name?“
She looks in her bag, takes out a fag
Tries to get away from the guy on a blag
can’t find a light „Here, use mine“
„You see the thing is I just don’t have the time“

You can’t knock ‚em out, you can’t walk away
Try desperately to think of the politest way to say
Just get out my face, just leave me alone
And no you can’t have my number, cause I lost my phone

Go away now, let me go, are you stupid? Or just a little slow?
Go away now, I’ve made myself clear
„Nah, it’s not gonna happen, not in a million years“

You can’t knock ‚em out, you can’t walk away
Try desperately to think of the politest way to say
Just get out my face, just leave me alone
And no you can’t have my number, cause I lost my phone

You can’t knock ‚em out, you can’t walk away
Try desperately to think of the politest way to say
Just get out my face, just leave me alone
And no you can’t have my number, cause I lost my phone!

„Actually I’m getting married next week“
„No, seriously“
„Nah, I’ve gotta go, my house is on fire“
„I’ve got, I’ve got herpes, err no, syphilis“

Lily Allen Songtext: Smile

Lily Allen Songtext: Smile

When you first left me I was wanting more
But you were fucking that girl next door
What ya do that for? (What ya do that for)
When you first left me I didn’t know what to say
I’ve never been on my own that way, just sat by myself all day

I was so lost back then
But with a little help from my friends
I found a light in the tunnel at the end
Now you’re calling me up on the phone
So you can have a little whine and a moan
And it’s only because you’re feeling alone

At first when I see you cry
Yeah it makes me smile, yeah it makes me smile
At worst I feel bad for a while
But then I just smile I go ahead and smile

Whenever you see me you say that
You want me back (want be back)
And I tell you it don’t mean jack (it don’t mean jack)
No it don’t mean jack (no it don’t mean jack)
I couldn’t stop laughing
No I just couldn’t help myself
See you messed up my mental health
I was quite unwell

I was so lost back then
But with a little help from my friends
I found a light in the tunnel at the end
Now you’re calling me up on the phone
So you can have a little whine and a moan
And it’s only because you’re feeling alone

At first when I see you cry
Yeah it makes me smile, yeah it makes me smile
At worst I feel bad for a while
But then I just smile I go ahead and smile

Lalala

At first when I see you cry (when I see you cry)
Yeah, it makes me smile (it makes me smile)
Yeah, it makes me smile (yeah it makes me smile)
At worst I feel bad for a while (I feel bad for a while)
But then I just smile (then I just smile)
I go ahead and smile (I go ahead and smile)

Lalala

At first when I see you cry (when I see you cry)
Yeah, it makes me smile (it makes me smile)
Yeah, it makes me smile (yeah it makes me smile)
At worst I feel bad for a while (I feel bad for a while)
But then I just smile (then I just smile)
I go ahead and smile (I go ahead and smile)
