  • One, two, three, four
    Tell me that you love me more
    Sleepless long nights
    That is what my youth was for

    Old teenage hopes are alive at your door
    Left you with nothing but they want some more

    Oh, uh oh, you're changing your heart
    Oh, uh oh, you know who you are

    Sweetheart, bitter heart now I can tell you apart
    Cozy and cold, put the horse before the cart

    Those teenage hopes who have tears in their eyes
    Too scared to own up to one little lie

    Oh, uh oh, you're changing your heart
    Oh, uh oh, you know who you are

    One, two, three, four, five, six, nine, or ten
    Money can't buy you back the love that you had then
    One, two, three, four, five, six, nine, or ten
    Money can't buy you back the love that you had then

    Oh, uh oh, you're changing your heart
    Oh, uh oh, you know who you are
    Oh, uh oh, you're changing your heart
    Oh, uh oh, you know who you are
    Who you are, who you are

    For the teenage boys
    They're breaking your heart
    For the teenage boys
    They're breaking your heart


    Sesame Street version:

    One, two, three, four
    Tell me that you love me more
    Sleepless long nights
    That is what my youth was for

    Old teenage hopes are alive at your door
    Left you with nothing but they want some more

    Oh, uh oh, you're changing your heart
    Oh, uh oh, you know who you are

    Sweetheart, bitter heart now I can tell you apart
    Cozy and cold, put the horse before the cart

    Those teenage hopes who have tears in their eyes
    Too scared to own up to one little lie

    Oh, uh oh, you're changing your heart
    Oh, uh oh, you know who you are

    One, two, three, four, five, six, nine, or ten
    Money can't buy you back the love that you had then
    One, two, three, four, five, six, nine, or ten
    Money can't buy you back the love that you had then

    Oh, uh oh, you're changing your heart
    Oh, uh oh, you know who you are
    Oh, uh oh, you're changing your heart
    Oh, uh oh, you know who you are
    Who you are, who you are

    For the teenage boys
    They're breaking your heart
    For the teenage boys
    They're breaking your heart Writer/s: Leslie Feist, Peter Hoffman, Sally Mary Seltmann

  • Camille from Toronto, OhOne of the most visually incredible videos ever, all in one take, no splicing or editing, captivating; words don't do it justice. One of the few videos I have on my ipod. The simplicity of the lyrics and tune enhance the magical appeal to the nth degree.
  • Sara from Silver Spring, MdKenny Loggins covered this for his recent children's album and does it as a duet with his daugther Hana and changed the lyrics so it could be more about a man comforting his daughter
  • Alma from Laredo, TxAwesome music and lyrics. I just wish we had more access to music like hers in local markets without having to resort to satellite radio.
  • Ikeylius from Austin, TxThis song is good, but Feist is far more talent and has so many more catchy melodic songs than this one song can convey. Don't go to one of her concerts only knowing this one song.
  • Kami from New York City, NyI lovve this song. It is so good. I love the music video too.
  • Madalyn from Greensburg, Payou know its a good song when you listen to it for days
  • Bianca Sanchez from Alburquerque, NmThis song is freaking great I heard it on the commercil for the new iPod-wich i have-and I loved it my sis found that the band is caled Feist.
  • Alejandra from Quito, South AmericaGREAT SONG!!! it seems so simple yet so great!!
  • Don from B G, KyComedienne Nicole Parker does a funny music video parody of the song "1234" on MAD-TV. It is about the way Apple keeps coming out with a new better versions of the iPod after she buys one.
  • Camille from Toronto, OhAlmost haunting in its simplicity. Takes you back to a more innocent time in life. The video almost cannot be described in words, it is perfectly executed in the one take, no edits at all, awesome. This is one of the few videos I purchased from itunes. Love the song, love the video.
  • Logan from Troy, MtThis is actually a really awesome song. I had no idea there was such sadness behind it. I guess it's upbeat sound, and the fact I hum it all the time that I just miss the words and their meaning.

    But still, I think this song is awesome, and the video is just eye popping.
