"Still Take You Home" as written by and Alex/cook Turner....
Well, it's ever so funny
'Cause I don't think you're special, I don't think you're cool
You're just probably alright
But under these lights you look beautiful
And I'm struggling, I can't see through your fake tan
Yeah, and you know it for a fact that everybody's eating out of your hands

But what do you know?
Oh, you know nothing
Yeah, but I'll still take you home
Oh, yeah, I'll still take you home
So what do you know?
Said, you don't know nothing

Well, fancy seeing you in here
You're all tarted up and you don't look the same
Well, I haven't seen you since last year
Yeah, and surprisingly you have forgotten my name
But you know it, yeah, and you knew it all along
Oh and you say you have forgotten but you're fibbing, go on, tell me I'm wrong

So what do you know?
Oh, you know nothing
Yeah, but I'll still take you home
Oh, yeah, I'll still take you home
So what do you know?
Oh, you don't know nothing, no

Oh-woah, woah, woah
Oh-woah, woah, woah
Da-da, da-da-da, da-da, da-da
Da-da, da-da, da-da-da
Oh-woah, woah, woah

Oh, so what do you know?
Yeah, you don't know nothing, no
Yeah, but I'd still take you home
Oh, yeah, I'll still take you home
I said, what do you know?
Oh, you don't know nothing

I fancy you with a passion
Oh, you're a Topshop princess, a rockstar, too
But you're a fad and you're a fashion
And I'm having a job trying to talk to you
But it's alright, yeah, I'll put it on one side
Oh, 'cause everybody's looking, you've got control of everyone's eyes including mine

    General CommentThese are the right lyrics for the demo, but the album version changed them.

    The first bit is:
    'Oh it's ever so funny,
    cos I don't think you're special
    I don't think you're cool'

    and

    'I'm fancying you with a passion
    You're a Topshop princess, a rockstar too
    'You're a fad, you're a fashion
    And I'm having a job trying to talk to you'

    ...for the last verse.

    General CommentI think this song is mocking the hell out of a girl, who is fake, she 'tarts' herself up for obvious reasons, this guy is mocking her "you think its cool" basically saying she is a product..slave to fashion.

    He says you;re probably "alright" but under these lights (shes so dolled up) "you look beautiful."

    Hes saying how clueless and stupid the girl "what do you know? you know nothing!"

    But he'll take her home because he wants sex. Hes a boy, he thinks shes ridiculous, but he knows hell get what he wants.

    General CommentThis song couldn't be anymore Saturday night on the town.
    Fucking quality man.

    The first verse demo and album is fantastic and the "I fancy you with a passion!!" is a killer line.

    Fan-bloody-tastic.

    General CommentSO! either this is about an ex, or it's about someone he USED to like, but now she's all gone slut, OOOOR it's about the quiet girl in the back that's finally got fed up with it and gone all gorgeous and air-head, and he's saying that boys will be boys..
    "And everybody's looking
    You got control of everyone's eyes
    Including mine "

    General Commenti just love this song from the first time i heard it not even knowing the monkeys!!! the vere where they sing about someone who knows your name but lies about knowing it is really a reflection of real life.
