  • Hey now call it a split 'cause you know that you will
    Oh you bite your friend like chocolate
    You say, we'll go where nobody knows
    With guns hidden under our petticoats
    No we're never gonna quit it, no we're never gonna quit it, no

    Now we run run away from the boys in the blue
    And my car smells like chocolate
    Hey now think about what you do, think about what they say
    Think about how to think
    Pause it play it, pause it play it, pause it

    Oh we go where nobody knows, with guns hidden under our petticoats
    No we're never gonna' quit it, no we're never gonna' quit it no
    Yeah we're dressed in black from head to toe
    We've got guns hidden under our petticoats
    No we're never gonna' quit it no we're never gonna' quit it no

    Now you're never gonna quit it
    Now you're never gonna quit it
    Now you're never gonna quit it
    If you don't stop smoking it
    That's what she said
    She said we're dressed in black, head to toe
    With guns hidden under our petticoats
    No we're never gonna quit it, no we're never gonna quit it, no

    Hey now we're building up speed as we're approaching the hill
    Oh my hair smells like chocolate
    Hey now you say you're gonna quit it but you're never gonna quit it
    Go get it, go get it, go get it, go
    And play it cool

    Oh and you said we go where nobody knows
    With guns hidden under our petticoats
    No we're never gonna' quit it, no we're never gonna' quit it no
    Yeah we're dressed in black, from head to toe
    We've got guns hidden under our petticoats
    We're never gonna' quit it, no we're never gonna' quit it no

    Well I think we better go, seriously better go
    Said it's better than hanging on
    Seriously better go, oh oh
    Well I think we better go
    Said it's better than hanging on
    Said Rebecca better know
    Seriously better go

    We go where nobody knows, with guns hidden under our petticoats
    No we're never gonna' quit it, no we're never gonna' quit it no
    Yeah we're dressed in black, head to toe
    With guns hidden under our petticoats
    No we're never gonna quit it
    No we're never gonna quit it, no

    Well I think we better go, seriously better go
    Said the feds are here you know
    Seriously better go
    Oh oh, well I think we better go
    Said the feds are here you know
    Said Rebecca better know
    Seriously better go Writer/s: Adam Brian Thomas Hann, George Bedford Daniel, Matthew Timothy Healy, Ross Stewart MacDonald

  • AnonymousI completely agree with you. These lyrics are a reference to the unrest in Wales during the early 1840s.
  • Teresa from WalesI believe that 'Chocolate' by The 1975 contains loose references to the 'Rebecca Riots' that took place in South and Mid Wales between 1839 and 1843 as an uprising against the poverty and oppressive taxation imposed on Welsh rural folk at that time. The male rioters dressed in their womenfolk's clothes, and quoted the bible; Genesis 24:60, which concerns the biblical figure Rebecca and her children. The lines, "With guns hidden under our petticoats..." and "Said Rebecca ought to know.." seem to indicate a connection. I would be interested if any of the band members would like to confirm or deny the link. More about the Rebecca Riots can be found on Wikipedia.
