I COULDN'T HELP BUT SING THOSE BACKING VOCALS. But just sort of sounds rather than words because I have NO IDEA what they are.

I'm too lazy to look but without searching this is the only place I know with some lyrics: http://songmeanings.net/artist/view/songs/137438983558/

I am going to try typing out the lyrics to Holiday when I can be bothered. Maybe now.

I forgot my password. Here are some that aren't on songmeanings.


Holiday

I've been watching my money
Saving up for a holiday

A week in Paris
A trip to Rome
I can't afford to go on my own

So you want me to yourself
Well you must know that won't happen

I've been and prepared my bikini
for my holiday

We won't go to Paris
It's full of things you like too much
We won't go to Germany
It's full of girls that you like to touch

So you want me to yourself
Well you must know that won't happen



Let's Have A Party

Tonight I can tell
You need to get out
Grab your money
Lock the door
You won't be back here til tomorrow

I don't know but I've been told
there's a new club open tonight

Let's go out and have a party
Like we never have before

Tonight I can tell
Things haven't gone so well
Grab your money
Get out the door
You won't see me here any more

I don't know but I've been told
Places like this are getting old

Let's go out and have a party
Like we never have before



Our Raid

We took the money from the cash till
We'll take it back cause we're not thieves
and now we're heading back to your house
It's so exciting what it feels like (THANKS YAS)

okay I can't be bothered to type out the rest cause it's not very easy. Someone else with more patience feel free to try it...

In one bit it sounds like "When's she gonna go rape my friend? When she gonna go rape?"

That can't be right. confused

I was sure it was "when's she gonna do it". And no, sadly there aren't any lyrics on the album sleeve. D:

well the only confirmation i had on the "it must be love, it must be love" part is the Primary 1's Love letter to metronomy because he sings "ooo it must be love and the same part is used as backing to it. Hard to explain....

just listen?

On Dancefloors lyrics from the Electric Proms site (corrected to fit the song by me):

Hearing, is getting me down,
Is getting me down to the disco floor,
Hearing, is wearing me down,
Is wearing me down from my ears;

All those evenings,
Spent disappointed on dancefloors,
I'll add to now, and learn one day;

I wanna get more from this,
I wanna get more from this,
I wanna get more from this than you;

Sometimes I'll put up with it, alright,
But I can't even dance, the way I might,
Were it just me and you tonight,

I wanna get more from this,
I wanna get more from this,
I wanna get more from this,
I wanna get more from this than you.

Sorry for double post, but I've just transcribed these for Back On The Motorway. Ironically, I actually first worked out the backing vocals while on a motorway Laughing

Back On The Motorway
We are never going to go with your lover,
We are never going to go with your lover,
We are never going to go with your lover,
We are never going to go with your lover;

I went and messed around with her heart,
So now she's run off with my car,
But I can't live without her,
(And it's so hard to take),
So I've set out to find her,
I'm back on the motorway;

At this wheel I drive the earth for her (We are never going to go with your lover, we are never going to go with your lover),
Every carriageway, a mile for her (We are never going to go with your lover, we are never going to go with your lover),
These five gears and wheels could drive to her (We are never going to go with your lover, we are never going to go with your lover),
But this carriageway can't take me there (We are never going to go with your lover, we are never going to go with your lover);

Driving at 90 miles per hour (miles, per, per hour),
It's hard to know what's coming (what, what, what's coming).
Then on the horizon (then on the horizon),
Something makes me brake,
I can see my darling (I can see my darling),
Ahead on the motorway;

(I can see us lying on the bonnet of a Chevrolet),
So why's my baby lying at the side of the motorway?
(I wish that I had never said the things that I told her today),
Cause now she's left me crying,
On the shoulder of the motorway;

At this wheel I drive the earth for her (We are never going to go with your lover, we are never going to go with your lover),
Every carriageway, a mile for her (We are never going to go with your lover, we are never going to go with your lover),
These five gears and wheels could drive to her (We are never going to go with your lover, we are never going to go with your lover),
But this carriageway can't take me there (We are never going to go with your lover, we are never going to go with your lover);

We are never going to go with your lover,
We are never going to go with your lover,
We are never going to go with your lover,
We are never going to go with your lover,
We are never going to go with your lover,
We are never going to go with your lover,
We are never going to go with your lover,
We are never going to go with your lover.

EDIT: Lyrics for My Heart Rate Rapid; not fully certain on the "only know" parts as it just turns into blurghblurghblurghblurghhhhh after the first few lines Razz

My Heart Rate Rapid
We only know,
Oh, only know,
We only know,
Oh, only know,
We only know,
Oh, only know,
We only know,
Oh, only know;

When she walked away from me,
When she walked away,
When she walked away from me,
When she walked away;

Those who doubt it,
Sure, I've got it,
I'm gonna tell her with my heart rate rapid,
It must be love,
It must be love,
It must be love,
It must be love,
It must be love;

Those who doubt it,
Sure, I've got it,
I'm gonna tell her with my heart rate rapid,
It must be love,
It must be love,
It must be love,
It must be love,
It must be love;

We only know,
Oh, only know,
We only know,
Oh, only know,
We only know,
Oh, only know,
We only know,
Oh, only know;

When she walked away from me,
When she walked away,
When she walked away from me,
When she walked away;

Those who doubt it,
Sure, I've got it,
I'm gonna tell her with my heart rate rapid,
It must be love,
It must be love,
It must be love,
It must be love,
It must be love,
It must be love;

It must be love,
It must be love,
It must be love,
It must be love,
It must be love,
It must be love,
It must be love,
It must be love,
It must be love,
It must be love,
It must be love,
It must be love,
It must be love,
It must be love,
It must be love.

I might also get around to finishing off the Our Raid lyrics if you want me to Smile

sometimes i hear, "theres'a gonna be a rape my friend!" like he's telling his friends that there is going to be a rape happening soon. and sometimes i hear "things are gonna do alright my friend." and for the other parts i hear "Those who damage, show our caddid(?), im gonna tell her with my heart rate rapid. IT WONT BE LONG IT WONT BE LONG. as in it won't be long before he tells her that he likes her.

hahaha, i think it's amazing that everyone thinks it's rape! Because me and helen used to joke about it being "When she gonna do a rape, my friend"

but yeah i think it's "When's she gonna do right, my friend? When's she gonna do right?"

Nice analytical interpretation of the lyrics! Laughing

Here's what I make out for the second verse of Our Raid:
Goodbye, we've got to get ourselves out,
Or else it's gonna end in tears,
Yet we'll hope to watch them deliver,
Go down down down (down down)

Seems to fit what the song is about as well Very Happy

P.S. There are 24 "Like... oh!"s after this verse Shocked
