"Knock 'Em Out" as written by Lily Rose Beatrice Allen, Iyiola Babatunde Babalola, Darren Emilio Lewis and Earl King....
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"
He's 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 a lads 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 darlin, 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 waste, 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."

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 cant have me number,
"why?"
Because I've lost my phone.

Oh yeah, actually yeah I'm pregnant,
having a baby in like 6 months so no, and yeah, yeah

"I recognise this guy..."
That's what she's thinking,
As he comes over her heart 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,
"use mine"
"you see the thing is I really don't have the time."

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 cant have me number,
"why?"
Because I've lost my phone.

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,

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 cant have me number,
"why?"
Because I've lost my phone.

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 cant have me number,
"why?"
Because I've lost my phone.

Nah I've gotta go cos my house is on fire,
I've got herpes, err no I've got syphilis

    General CommentIf anyone's interested the bit at the end is -

    "Actually I'm getting married next week,
    No, seriously,
    Uh, no, I gotta go my house is on fire!
    I've got herpes! no syphilis! AIDs, AIDs, I've got AIDs!
    Yeah, I forgot my Vagisil"

    Shame that's missed out, it's the funniest bit!

    Love Lily Allen, Love this song!

    General CommentI f@#%ing LOVE lily allen. She's the coolest, and I can definitely relate to this song. She's talking 'bout when u chillin at a bar or w/e and a random guy just comes up to you and trys to "holler" but his game is wack, hes wack, and you just want him to disappear.

    KUDOS to lily.

    General CommentMy favourite Lily song!
    I think we get the song meaning, my interpretation is that it's about guy who come up to you believing it'ts in your best interest to give them your number and you basically fob them off with a load of lie to make them go away!

    General CommentJust posted this on the page for smile, oops.. lol.. But anyways.. You got soo much of this song wrong.. Im gonna post the words...


    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"
    But he's 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 a lads night out,
    Man at the bar cos it was his shout,
    Clocks this bird and she looks ok,

    "err no, but I was thinking of buying one for your friend..."

    She's got no taste hand on his waste, 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."

    You can't knock 'em out, you can't walk away,
    Try desperately to think about the politest way to say,
    "Just get out my face" Just leave me alone",
    "And no you can't have my number",
    "why?"
    "Cos I've lost my phone".

    "Oh yeah, actually yeah I'm, I'm pregnant, I'm having a baby in like 6 months so no, yeah, yeah..."

    I recognise this guys way of thinking,
    As he walks 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."

    You can't knock em out, you 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",
    "Cos I've lost my phone".

    Go away now, let me go,
    Are you stupid? Or just a little slow?
    "Please fuck off"
    Go away now I've made myself clear,
    I don't think so,
    Nah it's not gonna happen,
    Not in a million years,

    You can't knock em out, you 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",
    "Cos I've lost my phone".

    You can't knock em out, you 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",
    "Cos I've lost my phone".

    "Aw, No, i gotta go, my house is on fire.",
    "I've, I've got herpes, no syphalis. Aids aids, I've got aids.",
    "Yeah, I forgot my Vagisil".

    General Commentall i can say is...aahahaha!

    but omg, that would be so funny to actually try those lines in real life like "I've lost my phone. I'm pregnant. I've got herpes, no syphalis. Aids...Yeah, I forgot my Vagisil." cuz well..the "lesbian" one gets old. :p Though I really DON'T have a mobile phone :P hahaha i think what that song is about prolly happens to a lot of people lol. cool song. that bit "are you stupid or just a little slow" is funny as well and the way the song done and written is pretty cool, like the imagery and stuff. awesomeness. ten points!
