"Something Global" as written by Mary Kate Geraghty, James Patrick Fox, Thomas William Ryan and Adrian Paul Mullan....
and hooks are for wimps, and choruses for gays,
so "give me my hook," they call out to the stage,
you're running like a preacher's hand caressing
feeling up all the cleavage in town

oh, give me my hook,
i know it might sound lame,
do you like my new look?
waistcoats are so today
so give me something special darling,
so I can skip around and flip around,
and call it by a name,
something global, something real,
something music kids might steal,
something different, something whoa,
something trendy at the mo',
something retro, something cool,
a look for all the boys to drool,
give me my hook, give me my hook

magazines are so overrated yet
and then try to tell you, try to to sell you,
what's new and what's now obsolete,
and they like their garish friends and yeah,
they like those indie gems and yeah,
they like whatever cool new trend's
gonna take those copies off the shelf

so, give me my hook,
i know it might sound lame,
do you like my new look?
waistcoats are so today
so give me something special darling,
so I can skip around and flip around,
and call it by a name,
something global, something real,
something music kids might steal,
something different, something whoa,
something trendy at the mo',
something retro, something cool,
a look for all the boys to drool,
give me my hook, give me my hook

we're something global, something real,
something music kids might steal,
something different, something whoa,
something trendy at the mo',
something retro, something cool,
a look for all the boys to drool,
give me my hook, give me my hook

    Language and insults, fall back to the plate
    You're running without a greater plan of escape
    The suits out on the streets
    They're marching in pairs
    All dapper and toyboy ties and purple flairs

    In the second chorus "skip" and "flip" are swapped over.


    I reckon the meaning's to do with finding a new fashion that everyone will like, the "hook" that will catch everyone, something the magazines don't necessarily agree with.
