Viciously, she sleeps
Walks alone her lonely beat
She trips, falls into it all
And I wish I bite my lip and
Call her away from you my little one
Oh from you my little one

Don't come too close
You don't wanna see my ghost
Your turn but I'm betrayed
By you my sweetheart
Don't you think that you went too far
Do you want to see my heart bleed?
For you, you and him
Him and you, you know my heart bleeds

All of us, we're going out tonight
We're gonna walk all over your cars
The Kooks are out in the streets
Oh we're gonna steal your signs
All of us, we're going out tonight
We're gonna walk all over your cars
The Kooks are out in the streets
Oh we're gonna see your...

I'm sorry that I let you go
I let you down, I let you down my dear
I always seem to play these games with you my, dear
I always, I always...

All of us, we're going out tonight
We're gonna walk all over your cars
The Kooks are out in the streets
Oh we're gonna steal your signs
All of us, we're going out tonight
We're gonna walk all over your cars
The Kooks are out in the streets
Oh we're gonna steal your signs

Oh my Juliet, I'll never betray you my love
Oh my Juliet, I'll never, I'll never betray you

Woah woaaaaaooooooaoaooo
Woah woaaaaaooooooaoaooo
Woah woaaaaaooooooaoaooo
Woah woaaaaaooooooaoaooo

Don't come too close
You don't wanna see my ghost
Your turn but I'm betrayed
By you my sweetheart

Clearly our some of our American cousins are struggling with some of the excellent music coming out of England at the moment. And thats fine - it takes all sorts to make a world.

For reasons that are abundantly clear, I really, really, really can't stand these guys' vocals.
Someone finally got the nostalgia right. Crackling!

Yeah, like that brummy accent that Nick Harcourt sports on his radio show. Or the Liverpudlian ones of the Fab Fours. But you can't beat Benny Hill's American accents. I never realized how we sounded til I watched that show back in the 70s.
Shades of early XTC - very fun!
I'll wait & see - sounds kinda lame/sporty/lame-fun/sporty - IDANO
Sounded like early Oingo Boingo there for a moment.

I just adore this song... they grew on me
sound like they would be fun live (if they can keep the bass player awake).
The Kooks are out in the street! :cheers:
Wow, 3 Kooks tunes in the rotation. Excellent! Don't stop now, gimme more. I don't suppose we'll hear "Jackie Big Tits," huh?
Arctic Monkey-ish

According to AMG, they formed around 2005 in England.
fun melody. i like the british accent. why do the album cover photos often look pixelated and very-low-res?
"We're going ocelot"? Weird, or what? :cool:

Never heard of them, but this piece is quite likable.
