Kaiser chiefs - You want history

Yesterday you lay awake on your bed,
and worked out you'd done everything that you said,
that you'd do before you got to this age
the lord of the bored and a slave to the beige

It's a mystery
It's a mystery
You want some history
It's a mystery

So last night you got up and out of this room,
the ceiling is peeling and covered in gloom,
but jaguar shoes is a place you can stare
a procession of lessons in what not to wear

It's a mystery
It's a mystery
You want history
It's a mystery

Today while you shake off the drunken debris,
all that is left is the vague memory,
of down in the grout of a night on the tiles,
it's hard to remember but totally worthwhile.

It's a mystery
It's a mystery
You want some history
It's a mystery


It's a waste of money
you have to admit
if its a waste of money
you have to have it

It's a waste of brains
but hard to resist
if you wanted history
You've got it

It's a waste of money
you have to admit
if its a waste of money
you have to have it

It's a waste of brain cells
hard to resist
if you wanted history
You missed it

If the girls start moving he boys will start moving
If the girls start moving the boys will join in

If the girls start moving the boys will start moving
If the girls start moving the boys will join in
