Sweetie & Shag

This is the only Battles song that doesn't have lyrics posted on any lyrics site. Even Ice Cream and its gibberish (?) have attempted lyrics posted on sites. Well anyway, I asked Ian if he knew the lyrics. He told me "i'm really not completely sure. i assume that kazu knows."  Well, I tweeted my question to Kazu Makino a while back, but have not yet heard from her.

 

Does anyone want to attempt the lyrics to this song? I could try, but I know I would be really wrong on parts!

Original Post

This what I hear:

 

When the hurt is let in

Or the galls of feel all darken

For there is that girl I'm lovin

But they rip to wife or junk thing

 

(Boy) Life of boy where do you sleep? (Boy, dance)

There's the girl where do you go?

(Boy) Life of boy what do you see? (Boy, dance)

What do you know, what do you know?

 

(Boy) Why should I be a fantasy?

Don't nobody know no one else is?

Why would I be

Like a child they found dead again?

 

When the hurt is lit in lieu

Of the gall that feel all darkened

For there is that girls out lovin

But they rip to wife or junk thing

 

(Boy) Life of boy where do you sleep? (Boy, dance)

There's the girl what do you see?

(Boy) Life of boy how much do you know? (Boy, dance)

What do you know, what do you know?

 

(Girl) Why should I be a fantasy?

Don't nobody know no one else is?

Why would I be

Like a child they found dead again?

 

I know this is probably very inaccurate but it's my best effort.

I'm glad you're trying! I'm surprised no one else has it posted.
Probably inaccurate as well, but this is what I hear:

While my heart is livin'
All the girls, I feel 'em talkin'
For there is this girl I'm lovin'
I'm a bit too white for jumpin'

Life of boy where do you sleep?
There's a girl, where do you go?
Life of boy, What do you see?
What do you know, what do you know?

Why should I be
a fantasy even though no one else is?
What would I be
Like a child before I get this?

While the heart is livin low
Oh the girl, I feel I'm dyin'
Somewhere else the girls are laughin'
I'm a bit too white for jumpin' (?)



Life in Boy what do you see?
Where's the Girl what do you see?
Life of Boy how much do you know?
what do you know? What do you know?

Why should I be
in a fantasy even though no one else is?
Where will I be?
Like a child before I get this?
