"Under Your Thumb" as written by Justin James Hayward-young, Freddie Cowan, Peter Robertson and Arni Hjorvar....
Hanging out some
Underneath European sun
Hanging out under your thumb
Under it, second to none

Well I don't mind about taking it slow
I'm perfectly aware of what I'm yet to know
Mutually assumed, utterly consumed
Totally adored, Eleanor
Eleanor

Eleanor

Take it in your stride but don't string me along
I wouldn't tie you down but if you did do me wrong
Thoroughly unnerved, equally perturbed
Totally adored, Eleanor
Eleanor

Eleanor

Eleanor

    Song MeaningJustin Young (Vaccines' frontman) said this about "Under Your Thumb"
    "This was a song we battled with in terms of arrangement. We all loved the song and settled on this. Its fun and a fun love song!"

    Song ComparisonAlso, I think the lyric "European sun" is a reference to the Velvet Underground song "European Son" though it doesn't seem to have anything to do with the meaning of that song. In an old interview, Jay Jay Pistolet (Justin Young) said he loved the Velvet Underground & Nico album.
