Obvious Bicycle – Vampire Weekend

My boyfriend just put this on a mix CD he made for me and I just can’t get enough of it. I’m currently learning it on the uke so watch out for it! haha

 

Morning’s come, you watch the red sun rise,
The LED still flickers in your eyes,
Oh you outta’ spare your face the razor,
Because no one’s gonna’ spare the time for you.

No one’s gonna’ watch you as you go,
From a house you didn’t build and can’t control,
Oh, you outta’ spare your face the razor,
Because no one’s gonna’ spare the time for you.
Why don’t you spare the world your labour,
It’s been twenty years and no one’s told the truth.

So listen, Oh,
So listen, Oh,
Don’t wait,
Don’t wait.

so listen, Oh,
(Listen, ay hey ay hey ay hey)
So listen, Oh,
(Listen, ay hey ay hey ay hey)
Don’t wait
(Don’t wait ay hey ay hey ay hey)
Don’t wait
(Don’t wait ay hey ay hey ay hey)

So keep that list of who to thank in mind,
And don’t forget the rich ones who were kind,
Oh, you ought to spare your face the razor,
Because no one’s gonna’ spare the time for you.
Why don’t you spare the world a traitor
Take your wager back and leave before you lose.

So listen, Oh,
(Listen, ay hey ay hey ay hey)
So listen, Oh,
(Listen, ay hey ay hey ay hey)
Don’t wait
(Don’t wait ay hey ay hey ay hey)
Don’t wait
(Don’t wait ay hey ay hey ay hey)

So while the sun’s coming out,
Cover ground,
Cover ground.

And if you found some love for these clowns,
Turn around,
Turn around.

I’ll be asleep on the floor of our high school GYM,
Thinking of you and wondering if anyone else could begin,

To listen,
Listen.

Don’t wait,
Don’t wait.

So listen, Oh,
(Listen, ay hey ay hey ay hey)
So listen, Oh,
(Listen, ay hey ay hey ay hey)
Don’t wait
(Don’t wait ay hey ay hey ay hey)
Don’t wait
(Don’t wait ay hey ay hey ay hey)
