And if you knew what I know
You wouldn't go to see her
And least of all believe her when she says that she wants you
Well you're just another puppet, she's not even keeping score
And the lazy way she cheats you leaves me cold
She'll laugh about you, my best friend, but you don't know

'Cause if you knew what I know
You wouldn't go to see her
And least of all believe her when she says that she wants you

She spends her daddy's money
And she drives her daddy's car
And what's crazy is the way you think that's style
And all the while my heart is breaking
You're not even on her mind (?)

'Cause if you knew what I know
Babe you wouldn't leave me
You wouldn't turn away from my love it's what you said that you believed in

I say this as your friend
You'll be the poor boy in the end

Must agree with this comment.  Reminds me of a lame female REM. Not much to it.

Now that would be interesting.
Neko singing "Downtown"!

Not right after Hendrix. That does not work.
More please!

Hmmmm...what instruments do you play? Would they complement Neko's 4-string?

Jangly, and I luzzit!  {#Jump}
Is there something dead on every one of her album covers?
Gosh, I love to hear her sing! I am going to see her this year, if I have to drive 500 miles! {#War}
It's hard to follow up Jimi Hendrix, but Neko does it with ease.  And this is not one of her best efforts!

Couldn't get much worse.  Trite lyrics, bad vocals, amateur production, hackneyed instrumentation.  Hey, what's not to like? {#Rolleyes}


yes, she is a "case"......-  

** 7 **


Hot damn! Could she be any better?
I am in Love with Neko Case.........have been ever since first hearing her sing. What a woman....!
She is every bit as awesome live as she is recorded. I caught her show at the State Theatre in Ithaca and she was incredible. Great voice, good stage presence, band seemed to be having fun, and that hair! Damn, I LOVE this woman!

Indeed. And this is a very good thing.
Oh my ... I had to up my rating on this one. And will HAVE to get this cd too. :clap: If You Knew And if you knew what I know You wouldn't go to see her And least of all believe her when she says that she wants you Well you're just another puppet, she's not even keeping score And the lazy way she cheats you leaves me cold She'll laugh about you, my best friend, but you don't know 'Cause if you knew what I know You wouldn't go to see her And least of all believe her when she says that she wants you She spends her daddy's money And she drives her daddy's car And what's crazy is the way you think that's style And all the while my heart is breaking You're not even on her mind 'Cause if you knew what I know Babe you wouldn't leave me You wouldn't turn away from my love it's what you said that you believed in I say this as your friend You'll be the poor boy in the end

Neko isn't her best doin' threesomes; she can only keep her head on one thing at a time. My experience¬ótake Neko to a mountain top or out in a field somewhere, where she can concentrate. And forget the wife! Oh and one more thing, she likes it when you behave like the Devil. . . :devil_pimp:

You and I think alike...

Another wonderful Neko tune! Thanks Bill. Neko's voice is as great as it gets.
Album cover has Asian cat and North American deer. Must have dug under the fence at the zoo! :neutral:

My newest upload! How can you go wrong with Neko! I also uploaded the title track The Tigers Have Spoken (46/13 78% Sorry). Good song though... even though it's a little depressing.
Go see Neko live!!! Fantastic...
Haha smoooth intro there dj ;)
Great song, as always when it comes to Neko. And awesome album cover! :mrgreen:
