What Katie Did

Album: The Libertines (2004)
  • Shoop shoop, shoop de-lang-a-lang
    Shoop shoop, shoop de-lang-a-lang
    Shoop shoop, shoop de-lang-a-lang
    Shoop shoop, shoop de-lang-a-lang

    Shoop shoop, shoop de-lang-a-lang
    Shoop shoop, shoop de-lang-a-lang
    Shoop shoop, shoop de-lang-a-lang
    Shoop shoop, shoop de-lang-a-lang

    Oh whatcha gonna do, Katie?
    You're a sweet sweet girl
    But it's a cruel, cruel world
    A cruel, cruel world

    My pins are none too strong, Katie
    Hurry up, Mrs Brown
    I can feel it coming down
    And it won't take none too long

    But since you said goodbye
    Polka dots fill my eyes
    And I don't know why

    Shoop shoop, shoop de-lang-a-lang
    Shoop shoop, shoop de-lang-a-lang
    Shoop shoop, shoop de-lang-a-lang
    Shoop shoop, shoop de-lang-a-lang

    Whatcha gonna do, Katie?
    You're a sweet, sweet girl
    But it's a cruel, cruel world
    A cruel, cruel world

    Safety pins are none too strong, Katie
    They hold my life together
    And I'll never say never
    And I'll never say never again

    But since you said goodbye
    Polka dots fill my eyes
    And I don't know why

    Since you said goodbye
    Polka dots fill my eyes
    And I don't know why

    Shoop shoop shoop de-lang-a-lang
    Shoop shoop shoop de-lang-a-lang
    Shoop shoop shoop de-lang-a-lang
    Shoop shoop shoop de-lang-a-lang

    Shoop shoop shoop de-lang-a-lang
    Shoop shoop shoop de-lang-a-lang
    Shoop shoop shoop de-lang-a-lang
    Shoop shoop shoop de-lang-a-lang

    Shoop shoop shoop de-lang-a-lang
    Shoop shoop shoop de-lang-a-lang
    Shoop shoop shoop de-lang-a-lang
    Shoop shoop shoop de-lang-a-lang

    Shoop shoop shoop de-lang-a-lang
    Shoop shoop shoop de-lang-a-lang
    Shoop shoop shoop de-lang-a-lang
    Shoop shoop shoop de-lang-a-lang

    But since you said goodbye
    Polka dots fill the skies
    And I don't know whyWriter/s: Peter Doherty

  • Andy from Omaha, NeAlso, even though Pete sings the song on some early demos, the album version is sung by Carl.
  • Alex from Perth,The "Shoop Shoop Shoop delang-a-lang was a replacement for the line "Shoot shoot shoot the line-a-line"

    Mrs Brown is a reference to heroin as you can tell from the next line of the song "I can feel it coming down but it wont take none too long"
