  • The future needs a big kiss
    Winds blow with a twist
    Never seen a moon like this
    Can you see it too?

    Night is falling everywhere
    Rockets hit the fun-fair
    Satan loves a bomb scare
    But he won't scare you

    Hey! Sexy boots
    Get on your boots yeah!

    Free me from a dark dream
    Candy floss, ice cream
    All the kids are screaming but the ghosts aren't real
    Here's what we gotta be
    Love and community
    Laughter is eternity if joy is real

    You don't know how beautiful
    You don't know how beautiful you are
    You don't know
    You don't get it do you?
    You don't know how beautiful you are

    If some have stuff to blow it up
    We're into growing up
    Women are the future
    All the big revelations
    I got a submarine
    You've got gasoline
    I don't wanna talk about wars between nations
    Not right now

    Sexy boots
    No! no no no
    Get on your boots yeah!
    Not right now!
    Foxy boots

    You don't know how beautiful
    You don't know how beautiful
    You are
    You don't know
    You don't get it do you?
    You don't know how beautiful you are

    Sexy boots
    I don't wanna talk about wars between the nations
    Sexy Boots yeah!

    Let me in the sound
    Let me in the sound
    Let me in the sound sound
    Let me in the sound sound
    Let me in the sound
    Let me in the sound
    Let me in the sound now
    Oh God I'm going down
    I don't wanna drown now
    Meet me in the sound

    Let me in the sound
    Let me in the sound
    Let me in the sound sound
    Let me in the sound sound
    Meet me in the sound

    Get on your boots
    Get on your boots
    Get on your boots
    Yeah hey hey!
    Get on your boots
    Yeah hey hey!
    Get on your boots
    Yeah hey hey!
    Get on your boots
    Yeah hey hey! Writer/s: ADAM CLAYTON, DAVE EVANS, LARRY MULLEN, PAUL DAVID HEWSON

  • Emma from Brooklyn, NyThis song's verses have the same tune as Pump it Up by Elvis Costello. And the lyrics are terrible. The worst line is,"Here's what you've gotta be: love and community." I love U2, but I think they have really run out of ideas.
  • Rob from Sydney, AustraliaI was surprised this was their lead single. Magnificent is the best song and should have been the lead single. After that I would say Crazy, Breathe, No Line, Unknown Caller would have all made better singles.
    Having said that, I rate the album (No Line on the Horizon) my favorite U2 album by a long marjin, followed by October and Achtung Baby. It is simply a superb album which gets better with each listen.
  • Scott from West Palm Beach, FlAnd you're from Ireland Evan? U2 left their 80's music right there in the 80's ... they've moved on and continuously improved and expanded. I have my fav's from the 80's, but also the 90's and today. In fact, there simply isn't a U2 song I don't like! This song has a fun and sexy vibe to it, what's wrong with that? To say it's god awful is ridiculous ... if you want god awful, go listen to disco and wonder what ever happened.
  • Evin from Cork, IrelandThis song is god awful... what ever happened the U2 from the 80s?!
  • T from P, PaThe whole record should be a treat. March can not come soon enough.There is no way to underrate these four men and the way they have changed music.
