Pharrell:

I want you
Do you want me, too?
I have one question:
Can I help you?
Now watch me
And what I do
Now thank you for coming through my drive-thru

Casablancas:

When you're haunted by the demons that'll never let you rest
Not shy in front of crowds, but shy in front of just one guest
Not dumb enough to win at their game
but not smart enough to dumb it down and take it away
It's black & white like space at night
If you wanna be like us you'd better work everynight

Santogold:

One question, what's your impression?
Now with a walk like mine, I'm a big presence
So make your move real slow my mind's a weapon
I said just move real slow, no second guessing
I find your approach so adolescent
I may look young, but your game is pre-pubescent
So watch my feet I'm known for my great steppin'
You wanna keep up gotta show me somethin'

Casablancas:

Look at all the leaders over on the playground
Always being up where we could watch
(I'm goin' after you)
The answer to the question I don't understand
is the word that I am never
(I'm going after you)
And if your happiness is watching TV all night long
...? job of dealin' other people in a song

I am here to change your goals
I regret it, but they're not done

Santogold:

You wonder, oh, how do I inspire?
Got the world spinnin' 'round inside my palm
Don't hate me you know they got you wired
You better show up ...?

'Cause we all wanna dance, just wanna dance dance,
We wanna dance, just wanna dance
'Cause we all wanna dance, just wanna dance dance
We wanna dance, just wanna dance

Casablancas:

It's summer in the city
It's summer in the city

We'd like to dance, to dance with you
Don't waste your time with one or two
You time it right, the summer night
You fall in love at every light

Santogold:

You wonder, oh, how do I inspire?
Got the world spinnin' 'round inside my palm
Don't hate me, 'cause you know they got you wired
You better show up ...?

'Cause we all wanna dance, just wanna dance dance,
We wanna dance, just wanna dance
'Cause we all wanna dance, just wanna dance dance
We wanna dance, just wanna dance

    General CommentFirst post!

    First of all, I can't get enough of this song. It's a great summer song. I think it's depicting working at at drive thru, and wanting to actually get out of your job and experience summer before it's over. It's a perfect July song. I've been listening to it ever since i downloaded it off of converse.com. i think i've listened to it 6 or 7 times now, and i absolutely love the commerical.

    "I find your approach so adolescent" ?
