"Bokkie" as written by and Diego Juan Garcia....
Jumping with your eyes closed, Landing on the sun
Being young and beautiful, In love with no one
But yourself

Chorus

And people tell you you're pretty yeah
Your smile drives them crazy lady
You want to slowly fade away, but you can't, So you stay

Playing for the public, Making them love you
You're so cruel

Chorus

And people tell you you're pretty yeah
Your smile drives them crazy lady
You want to slowly fade away, but you can't
So you stay with me, with me, Bokkie

I'm on an island for two

Chorus

And people tell tell you you're pretty yeah
Your smile drives them crazy lady
You want to slowly fade away, but you can't
So you stay with me

    General CommentI don't really like the Strokes anyway. This is an okay song by them, but not my favorite.

    General CommentIt kinda sounds like he's singing about a girlfriend who happens to be a celebrity.("Playing for the public"...) Well, it sounds like this to me. But if you don't agree, post your explanation for these lyrics because I would like to see what other people think.

    General Commentwell i don't know if this could possibly have any relevance but bokkie is an afrikaans word for small buck, as in "kyk, daar is 'n springbokkie!". it's also a term of endearment, which could link to the song, but probably not...

    anyway, my interpretation on this song is of a girl who, no matter what anyone says, never feels loved. she likes to make every like her, but she never feels like anyone loves her and just wishes she didn't have to go through all the drama everyday. but she can't make it go away so she jsut keeps on trying to make everyone like her. if that maks sense...
