The Fratellis


Well, it's a big, big city and it's always the same
Can never be too pretty, tell me your name
Is it out of line if I were simply bold to say: Would you be mine?
Because I maybe a beggar and you maybe the queen
I know I maybe on a downer, I'm still ready to dream
Now it's 3 o'clock, the time is just the time it takes for you to talk

So if you're lonely, why'd you say you're not lonely?
Oh, you're a silly girl, I know, I heard it so
It's just like you to come and go
And know me, no, you don't even know me
You're so sweet to try, oh, my, you caught my eye
A girl like you's just irresistible

Well, it's a big, big city and the lights are all out
But it's much as I can do, you know, to figure you out
And I must confess, my hearts in broken pieces and my heads a mess
And it's 4 in the morning, and I'm walking along
Beside the ghost of every drinker here who has ever done wrong
And it's you, woo hoo, that's got me going crazy for the things you do

So if you're crazy I don't care, you amaze me
But you're a stupid girl, oh, me, oh, my
You talk, I die, you smile, you laugh, I cry
And only a girl like you could be lonely
And it's a crying shame if you would think the same
A boy like me's just irresistible

So if you're lonely, why'd you say you're not lonely?
Oh, you're a silly girl, I know I heard it so
It's just like you to come and go
And know me, no, you don't even know me
You're so sweet to try, oh, my, you caught my eye
A girl like you's just irresistible
