  • Well I sit and hear sentimental footsteps
    Then a voice say,"Hi, so
    So whatcha got, whatcha got this time?
    C'mon, let's get high
    C'mon Lexo, whatcha got next-o?
    Walk 25 miles, oh
    Well I'm bored, I'm bored
    C'mon, let's get high
    C'mon, let's get high
    C'mon, let's get high, high"

    Well, I found a new way
    I found a new way
    C'mon, don't amuse me
    I don't need your sympathy
    La, la-la-la-la
    Ulysses
    I found a new way
    I found a new way, baby

    Am I Ulysses? Am I Ulysses?
    "No, but you are now, boy
    So sinister, so sinister
    But last night was wild
    What's the matter, there?
    Feelin' kind of anxious
    That hot blood grew cold
    Yeah, everyone, everybody knows it
    Yeah, everyone, everybody knows it
    Everybody knows ah"

    La, la-la-la-la
    Ulysses
    I found a new way
    I found a new way, baby
    La, la-la-la-la
    Ulysses
    I found a new way
    I found a new way, baby

    Oh... Oh, then suddenly you know
    You're never goin' home
    You're never, you're never
    You're never, you're never
    You're never, you're never
    You're never goin' home

    You're not Ulysses, oh baby, no
    La-la-la-la
    You're not Ulysses

  • Bryan from Orlando, FlThis song has two versions, almost indistinguishable from one another. The difference lies in the chorus and the emphasis on the syllables.

    One goes: LA, LA-la-la-la
    Second one goes: LA, la-LA-la-la

    Very hard to find the variant online now a days.
  • Darren from Aberdeenshire, United Kingdomalso alex kappranos is Greek (of origin) and I have personally asked him about that song after at a live concert. i stated he sang it with more passion than any of the others on the night, and i like the new album, this is my fav track on it etc etc etc- he stated "must be his heritage and the love of greek mythology.....and knowing its his mums favourite track!!!
  • Mike from Batavia, NyThis song apparently is about drugs. It contains the lyrics lets get high and i found a new way. I found a new way sounds like an acid reference.
  • Dhruv from Delhi, Indialove this song so cool.......
  • Kelsey from Brandon, FlThis song is Franz Ferdinand's best!
