You got a great car.
Yeah, what's wrong with it today?
I used to have one too,
Maybe I'll come and have a look.
I really love your hairdo, yeah.
I'm glad you like mine too,
See we're looking pretty cool.
Getcha!

So what do you do?
Oh yeah, I wait tables too.
No I haven't heard your band
Cause you guys are pretty new.
But if you dig on Vegan food.
Well come over to my work
I'll have them cook you something that you'll really love.

Cause I like you,
Yeah I like you.
And I'm feeling so Bohemian like you,
Yeah I like you,
Yeah I like you,
And I feel wahoo, wahoo, wahoo!

Wait. Who's that guy just hanging at your pad?
He's lookin' kinda bummed.
Yeah you broke up that's too bad.
I guess it's fair if he always pays the rent
And he doesn't get all bent
About sleepin' on the couch when I'm there.

Cause I like you,
Yeah I like you.
And I'm feeling so Bohemian like you.
Yeah I like you.
Yeah I like you
And I feel wahoo, wahoo, wahoo!

I'm getting wise
And I feel so bohemian like you.
It's you that I want so please,
Just a casual, casual easy thing.
Is it? It is for me

And I like you
Yeah I like you
And I like you, I like you, I like you,
Yeah I like you.
And I feel wahoo, wahoo, wahoo!

    General CommentWell I'm from Portland Oregon where this band is from and I think The Dandy Warhols and this song in particular represent this town far better than some other bands that have made it big out of this town (Everclear please take note) Whenever I hear this song I always think of NW 21st and 23rd which are like the sort of rich bohemian neighborhoods here and all the coffee shops where the rich kids go to meet other rich kids...oh god I'm babbling I'm gonna shut up now

    General Commentit's about a guy picking up a girl - thinks he's smooth, thinks he's playing the girl. Turns out, the girl is a complete maneater and he doesn't even realise it. In 2 months time, *he* will be the poor sap sleeping on the couch, not getting any, while this girl brings home a succession of guys and bangs them right under his nose.

    And the sweet thing is that he won't be able to complain or looked bummed - not even a little - when he is eaten up with jealousy, because of his own rules - Mr "Casual, Casual easy thing".

    Turns out love and sex is never really a casual easy thing. Someone always gets hurt. And Mr Smooth here doesn't realise that it's going to be him.

    General CommentThis song is a tune you crank in the summer time with the window down, crusing around in your junk car! It makes fun of all the "cool" kids!! Rock! And you can't help but sing along to whoo-hoo-ooo's

    General CommentJust a little bit more than inspired by the Rolling Stones, don'tcha think? From the whoo-hoo-ooos to the guitar riff, it all seems like the Stones... which is definitely not a bad thing! Rock over London, rock on Chicago!

    General CommentGod this song is my anthem...When me and my friends first heard it, it was like "Damn, I guess we're bohemian"...Ex-boyfriends sleeping on the couch so you can have someone else sleep over...I love you hair, but I just like you...Debauchery, Audacity, and Stretch-pants.

    General CommentThis is my friend's car song! I call it the car song cause it's in that car commercial, at lunch she'd play it for us and we'd just be humming along until the "I like you" part because that was the only part we'd know, then we'd go all out and sing along and dance, it brings back memories of last year.

    General CommentI agree with louis. Since I heard it, just can't put it out of my head. Please, guys, tell me about more songs like this, 'cause I live in Brazil, and it becomes more difficult to discover treasures like this. By the way, what do you think about Harvey Danger's Flagpole sitta? I like it a lot, too.
