This is a Song About Anyone.MissMalini , 07 Mar 2013
Love that my buddy Marv D’Souza just sent me this song, “I was listening to my iPod and this Lily Allen track played… and I thought of your post with that Ajaz Khan guy… and plus experience most girls have at clubs! hahahaha.” Marv this is amazing, and now playing on repeat as I blog. I heart you :)
PS. Knock ’em Out is the rnd track from her debut album Alright, Still and you have GOT to read the lyrics, Don’t you just love the British accent? Man at the bar cos it was his shout clocks this bird and she looks OK. *LOL* xoxo
“Knock ‘Em Out”
Alright so this is a song about anyone, it could be anyone. You’re just doing your own thing and some one comes out the blue, They’re like, “Alright” What ya saying, “Yeah can I take your digits?” And you’re like, “no not in a million years, you’re nasty please leave me alone.”Cut to the pub on our last night out, Man at the bar cos it was his shout, Clocks this bird and she looks OK, Caught him looking and she walks his way, “Alright darling, you gonna buy us a drink then?” “Err no, but I was thinking of buying one for your friend…”She’s got no taste hand on his waist, tries to pull away but her lips on his face, “If you insist I’ll have a white wine spritzer” “Sorry love, but you ain’t a pretty picture.”[Chorus] Can’t knock em out, can’t walk away, Try desperately to think of the politest way to say, Just get out my face, just leave me alone, And no you can’t have my number, “Why?” Because I’ve lost my phone.Oh yeah, actually yeah I’m pregnant, having a baby in like 6 months so no, yeah, yeah…”I recognize this guy’s way of thinking…” As he comes over her face starts sinking, She’s like, “Oh here we go..” It’s a routine check that she already knows, she’s thinking: “They’re all the same.”“Yeah you alright baby? You look alright still, yeah what’s your name?” She looks in her bag, takes out a fag, tries to get away from the guy on a blag, can’t find a light, “Here use mine” “You see the thing is I just don’t have the time.”[Chorus]Go away now, let me go, Are you stupid? Or just a little slow? Go away now I’ve made myself clear, Nah it’s not gonna happen, Not in a a million years,[Chorus x2]
Nah I’ve gotta go cos my house is on fire,
I’ve got herpes, err no I’ve got syphilis…
AIDS, AIDS, I’ve got AIDS!
The album’s title is used in a line from the second track, Knock ‘Em Out: “You look alright still, yeah what’s your name?” Allen borrowed the phrase from a slang term that her brother Alfie Owen-Allen and his friends used as a synonym for cool. She stated that she liked Albert Einstein‘s aphorism “Nothing changes until something moves” and the idea that “everything is [alright] as long as it’s still”.
Also the last like when she says, “AIDs” got edited out, as she later though that it wasn’t cool to use AIDs so loosely when it is a serious topic!
