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“
