Do the twist, twist for ice cream
Come on dance, misdirection
You can taste new tricks for blue jeans
But it's three if you're dead

We are trapped, to get violent
Shiny teeth, for perfection
The most bright, unassuming
Love the smell of your bath

Sci Fi
Half time

Mister, you're on fire, Mister
(No sir, I'm okay)

By the seaside, left the seashore
That's where I got lost
The seaside, left the seashore
That's where I got lost

We are trapped, to get violent
Shiny teeth, for perfection
The most bright, unassuming
Love the smell of your bath

Sci Fi
Half time

Mister, you're on fire, Mister
(No sir, I'm okay)

    General CommentI don't think the lyrics necessarily need to make sense for this song. It's just about the funky fresh beatzzz.

    is definitely right... 'cause i'm listening to both the original and the Yeah Yeah Yeahs' cover (which rocks!) and that's definitely what's being said

    General CommentI have a live version.. lyrics are much clearer
    in the live version at least, they sing:

    Do the twist, before ice-cream
    Come on dance this direction
    You can't teach new tricks to blue jeans
    But its (Suade??), so drop dead.

    We had a chance to get violent
    Shiney teeth, for perfection
    The most bright, unassuming
    Love the smell of your breath.
