Jumping up and down the floor,
My head is an animal.
And once there was an animal,
It had a son that mowed the lawn.
The son was an OK guy,
They had a pet dragonfly.
The dragonfly, it ran away,
But it came back with a story to say.

Her dirty paws and furry coat,
She ran down the forest slopes.
The forest of talking trees,
They used to sing about the birds and the bees.
The bees had declared a war,
The sky wasn't big enough for them all.
The birds, they got help from below,
From dirty paws and the creatures of snow.

So for a while things were cold,
They were scared down in their holes.
The forest that once was green
Was colored black by those killing machines.
But she and her furry friends
Took down the queen bee and her men.
And that's how the story goes,
The story of the beast with those four dirty paws.

He Yaw! <whipcrack>

So they're cowboys/girls or something?
All their songs, including the singalong chorus, sound the same. 
Arcade Fire wannabe.

Wait until you hear Florence & The Machine.  The comments are always interesting to read because of that.
 
Thank the gods RP doesn't have their song "Spectrum" in rotation.  That's Florence shouting cranked up to 11.
"Hey!"
Insert Mr. Yuck emoji here.

Song is fine except it sounds like Arcade Fire is covering that Edward Sharp and Magnetic Zeros song. Still works tho




Spot on. I was searching for the words.

Yuk.
Wow, they really thought they could put out this track and not think that everyone would assume they ripped it off from Edward Sharpe?  At first I thought it was Edward Sharpe putting out a song that sounded just like 'Home' and was going to criticize the lack of evolution but now I have a whole other level of criticism because it's a full copycat band! Talk about lack of originality...
Hipster Crap alert. This one sounds like the pretend band on the Colitis Commercial

I refuse to join in with the haters on this one. 

Nine years ago, when the album was released, my then seven-year-old god-daughter was really getting into music.  The album was one of her favourites, this track being a big hit with her.  She knew every word and hearing it will always remind me of a magical, silly weekend we spent with her and her dad, playing it to death and singing our hearts out. 

Caity will be 16 soon.

Time flies like an arrow, fruit flies like a banana...
 
Tits like coconuts

Hmm, is this where Ed Sharpe got his hit from?
Shouting in music? PSD!
Walter Mitty anyone? 
Booo !!!!
Last comment seven years ago.
I wish it could've stayed that way.
Saw Edward Sharpe with wife in Calgary about a month ago, great show, we both thought we heard this song that night!
I agree with everyone — this is very derivative

That was gorgeous!
 
So happy you keep finding gems for us.
The female vocal sounds a lot like Emiliana Torrini. 
Man, oh man, you’re my best friend, 
I scream it to the nothingness
There ain’t nothin’ that I need


...wait...wrong song?....are you sure?

Go get the Album folks ...... love the harmony like as singular but two voices, she seems to take the lead and he accompanies, impresses me.

Edward Sharpe & the Magnetic Zeros - Home is exactly what I was thinking of


Are Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros getting a check for this?
