"No You Girls" as written by Alexander Paul Kapranos Huntley, Nicholas John Mccarthy, Paul Robert Thompson and Robert Hardy....
Oh, kiss me
Lick your cigarette, then kiss me
Kiss me where your eye won't meet me
Meet me where your mind won't kiss me

Lick your eyes and mine and then hit me
Hit me with your eyes so sweetly
Oh, you know you know you know that yes I love
I mean I'd love to get to know you

Do you never wonder?
No, no no no

You girls never know
Oh no, you girls'll never know
No you girls never know
How you make a boy feel
You girls never know
Oh no, you girls'll never know
No you girls never know
How you make a boy feel
How you make a boy

Oh, kiss me
Lick your cigarette, then kiss me
Kiss me where your eye won't meet me
Meet me where your eye won't lick me
Lick your mind and mine so briefly
Oh you know, you know you're so sweetly
Oh you know, you know that I know that I love you
I mean I, I mean I need to love

Do you never wonder?
No, no no no

You girls never know
Oh no, you girls'll never know
No you girls never know
How you make a boy feel
You girls never know
Oh no, you girls'll never know
No you girls never know
How you make a boy feel
How you make a boy feel
How you make a boy

Sometimes I say stupid things
That I think
Well, I mean I
Sometimes I think the stupidest things
Because I never wonder
Oh how the girl feels
Oh how the girl feels

No you boys never care
Oh no you boys'll never care
No you boys never care
How the girl feels
No you boys never care
You dirty boys'll never care
No you boys never care
How the girl feels

Oh how the girl feels
Oh how the girl feels

    General CommentI agree with sighkickgirl. To me, this song is talking about how what men and women need in a relationship.

    Men typically have more physical/sexual needs, as stated in the first verse;
    Oh, kiss me
    Flick your cigarette, then kiss me
    Kiss me where your eye won't meet me
    Meet me where your mind won't kiss me
    Flick your eyes and mind and then hit me
    Hit me with your eyes so sweetly


    Women tend to have more emotional/romantic needs. They're quicker to fall in love and get more attached.

    Oh, you know you know you know you that
    Yes I love -- I mean I'd
    Love to get to know you
    ^ The two maybe just met or only known each other for a short while. The girl is probably falling for him, but the guy is just telling her what she wants to hear. He doesn't feel the same way.


    Sometimes I say stupid things
    But I think, well I mean I
    Sometimes I think the stupidest things
    Because I never wonder
    How the girl feels
    Oh, how the girl feels

    ^ He keeps telling her all of these things to maybe pressure her to do things for him, but she starts to not believe him and is hurt from getting played. He's starting to realize what he's been doing.


    And the chorus is basically saying that girls can be flirty and attractive, but don't fully understand how much it makes a guy feel or turns him on.

    And the "No you boys never care how the girl feels" part is saying that boys will lie to a girl and say anything to get what he wants, without knowing or caring how it makes the girl.

    My InterpretationIMHO:
    The first two verses are obviously about someone playing mind games and flirting around with our illustrious lead singer. Then the chorus accounts for how she never realizes how she makes him feel deep down.

    Then in the final verse, our illustrious lead singer realizes that he thinks a lot of stupid, shallow things about the girl. The last chorus then, is about how even though boys feel things when girls play with them, boys never care how the girl feels and we have a vicious cycle. ^__^

    Great song, definitely tops off the new album. I'm waiting for this, third single..?

    General CommentGirls don't know and boys don't care (about physical vs. emotional feelings)
    This doesn't remind me of a relationship really.. More of when two people meet and flirt around and the boy wants sex while the girl wants to fall in love. The boy will feel betrayed because the girl doesn't want sex, while the girls mind was on a completely different track, not knowing the boy really wants sex, and the girl feels betrayed because the boy doesn't have any interest in her apart from sexual interest, and he doesn't care about how that makes her feel.
    Something like that anyway..

    General Commentseriously? listen to the lyrics, like other franz songs, this is about sex. in this case, anal sex. Think about it: guys (homosexual ones) don't know how a they make a girl feel and girls don't know how it makes guys feel.

    You dirty boys'll never care
    How the girl feels

    and if you don't believe me, ask the band. I met them last year and they confirmed my interpretation.

    General Commentthis is such a catchy song.
    and i love how he says Yes I love -- I mean I'd love to get to know you.
    this amuses me greatly.
    and the comparison between guys and girls is interesting, too.

    I really like this song, my favourite from Tonight so far :)

    General CommentThanks, I've changed it to "flick". It was hard to tell.

    General CommentAs much as I love this song and "Katherine, Kiss Me," I think it's a freaking cop out since they're essentially the same song. I think they should have put both together and made a long song with movements, that would have been super cool.

    Other than this small complaint, I really do love this song.
