Walk little walk small talk big thoughts
Gonna tell ‘em all just what I want
That street two streets I see you and me
Hanging on the empty swings

Count high low, don’t worry my eyes are closed
I'm the Superman and it’s my show
One shoe two, gonna kick with my new shoes
I'm gonna kick until I need new shoes

I said don’t stop, don’t stop, don’t stop talking to me
Stop! Don’t stop, don’t stop giving me things

(These are the one of those times when we’re gonna have a lot of fun)

I run they run everybody run run
And we’re all just having fun
Sleigh ride boat ride piggybacka ride
I'm gonna show ‘em all how I can ride
One two three, close your eyes and count to four
I'm gonna hide behind my bedroom
Crayons on walls, I'll color on them all
I’ll draw until I've broken every law

I said don’t stop, don’t stop, don’t stop talking to me
Stop! Don’t stop, don’t stop giving me things
Stop! Don’t stop, don’t stop laughing about it
Stop! Don’t stop don’t stop taking me places

Don’t stop, don’t stop, don’t stop, don’t stop

I said don’t stop, don’t stop, don’t stop talking to me
Stop! Don’t stop, don’t stop giving me things
Stop! Don’t stop, don’t stop laughing about it
Stop! Don’t stop, don’t stop

I said don’t stop, don’t stop, don’t stop talking to me
I said don’t stop, don’t stop, don’t stop giving me things
I said don’t stop, don’t stop, don’t stop laughing about it
I said don’t stop, don’t stop, don’t stop with me

    My OpinionListen to this song. It's so catchy isn't it? Especially the 'oooh woo ooooh' bits and of course the complementary guitar chords.
    I honestly think this song was intended for an ad when it was written.
    I read (on Wikpedia) that Mark worked as a jingle writer for an advertisement company. So he knows what sorts of tunes that people will really grow on, besides the fact that he has a natural talent.
    Just an interesting piece of FTP trivia I thought was necessary to share with the fans.

    As for the song meaning, Mark has stated himself during a live acoustic performance that the song describes what it'd be like if '4 year olds ruled the world'.

    The more I listen to them, the more I grow fond of Foster The People. Can't wait for the next record!

    General CommentYeah It's definitely about being little kids, although little kids seem kind of menacing after seeing the video for Helena Beat
