I'm not saying it was your fault
Although you could have done more
Oh you're so naive yet so

How could this be done
You're such a smiling sweetheart
Oh and your sweet and pretty face
In such an ugly way
Something so beautiful
That every time I look inside

I know that she knows that I'm not fond of asking
True or false it may be
She's still out to get me

I know that she knows that I'm not fond of asking
True or false it may be
She's still out to get me

I may say it was your fault
Cause I know you could have done more
Oh you're so naive yet so

How could this be done
By such a smiling sweetheart
Oh and your sweet and pretty face
In such an ugly way
Something so beautiful
Every time I look inside

I know that she knows that I'm not fond of asking
True or false it may be
She's still out to get me

I know that she knows that I'm not fond of asking
True or false it may be
She's still out to get me

Oooh...

So how could this be done
By such a smiling sweetheart
Oh you're so naive yet so

Such an ugly thing
Someone so beautiful
And every time you're on his side

I know she knows that I'm not fond of asking
True or false it may be
She's still out to get me

And I know she knows that I'm not fond of asking
True or false it may be
She's still out to get me

Just don't let me down
Just don't let me down
Hold on to your pride
Just don't let me down
Just don't let me down
Hold on to your pride
Just don't let me down
Just don't let me down
Hold on to this pride
Just don't let me down
Just don't let me down

" .... hold on to your kite"??? :think: a little naive, isn't it?
It's: "I'm not fond of asking". And I love the Kooks.
Sorry, but Naut on the Wroster sounds annoying to me.
Sorry...can't get past the unique (poor) vocals.
I don't really like this but it was strangely refreshing after that ancient song by The Who.
Time to listen to Primus on youtube. John the Fisherman ought to do it for me.

Sub-Arctic Monkeys? Not on the Roster? I guess he\'s been cut from the team. :rolleyes:

Please remove marbles from mouth prior to singing.

... their lead singer Luke Pritchard is notorious for singing intelligible lyrics. Hahahahaha.
This is a great song!

Thought it was the Arctic Monkeys at first. Then they got to the chorus and it sucked super hard, so I knew it wasn't the Arctic Monkeys. Meh.
Meh.

Nope. Me too, or at least this song.
For those of you having a hard time understanding this young man, please allow me to translate for you: "I know she knows I'm noff on darastag" which I think speaks for itself...

Did they borrow their name from David Bowie's Kook's song from Hunky Dory?
These guys get better every time I hear them. I like their unusual accents.

good stuff
Catchy...
The Kooks are Kute
I've figured it out: I want to make out with the singer. :shifty:

Really doesn't matter. Even though I like it when artists are able to be T.S. Eliot with a great hook, this'll suffice for now.
Arctic Monkeys meet Hanson! Heck, I'm all for pop - a cautiously optimistic 6.
Adolescent, but decent. One day I'd like to see The Kinks prelude The Kooks on the playlist. Heh.

I apparently liked this better the first time I heard it. 6? I think not. 4.

This is the sort of stuff that is played a lot currently on British radio - The Kooks, The Fratellis, Razorlight, The Feeling... all pretty much the same. It's getting old pretty quick.

Downloaded this last week (from what I heard here) and the album is pretty good. Lot of good gems but some of the songs feel like filler. This song reminds me of Third Eye Blind and the power they put into their songs. Solid 8
Nice "teens" work ! :o)
:drummer: :guitarist:
Is he saying "oy no" in one line of the chorus and "I Know" in the other line?

Hmm. I completely dissed this band for another song played here - but have to admit this one's growing on me. Is it fungal?
I was just thinking the very same thing. Maybe it's viral
Glad somebody upped this. Sure like the album but never thought this would get any love on RP. It's great. Currently on my iPod, actually. :jump:

Nice and simple song. I can't help but like the lyrics though, especially the ending, "just don't let me down... hold on to your kite" :)

...it pops!...i like it...
This preceded by Josh Rouse is a nice combo. :bananajam: :bananapiano:
The more I listen, the more I like it. Interesting.
Arctic Monkeys - the sequel?
a bit too jjj for me I'm afraid
The song is OK, but they have a GREAT name
6 :drummer:
With two teenage kids who play the Kooks all the time I sat up when this track came on. They raved about them from the Reading Festial last year. I like much of what I've heard - will they progress and last? Remains to be seen I suppose
fun
THE KOOKS? Hey! I think I used to surf with these guys!
Not bad.

Love Kooks! Great surprise to hear them here. Gimme more Kooks, K? "Ooh La" is a great tune, too.
Yay, first comment! Interesting little ditty. Been hearing it now and then on the radio. It has grown on me a bit.
