  • I want Neil Young on your phone speaker in the morning
    And fuck him if he just can't see
    This is how his songs are supposed to be heard
    No more lectures on fidelity
    I don't believe in mysticism
    Only in what science proves
    Like the sex appeal of your sick dance moves
    Ooh, wee, ooh, wee

    Put on your red beret, baby
    Moonwalk naked across the room (ooh)
    Do something kinda unique to me
    Do something that'll make me swoon (ooh)
    That's how I know that I'm not pretending
    I know it's not make believe (ooh)
    It's only complicated if you want it to be
    Do you know what I mean? It's byzantine

    I want Hi-Chews, playlists, smoking on the roof
    And I love the way you look at me
    Tennessee Williams in Stuart Weitzman boots
    Yeah, you're just too wild to believe
    A fetish for athletic fashion
    Running shoes and striped tracksuits
    I never heard of Sparks before
    But I'm so glad you shared them with me

    Put on your red beret, baby
    Moonwalk naked across the room (ooh)
    Do something kinda unique to me
    Do something that'll make me swoon (ooh)
    That's how I know that I'm not pretending
    I know it's not make believe (ooh)
    It's only complicated if you want it to be
    Do you know what I mean? It's byzantine

    Rollin', crashin', breakin', splashing
    Givin', takin', makin', breakin' promises
    You got me high when I was low
    Negative ions, come save my soul (soul, soul)

    Put on your red beret, baby
    Moonwalk naked across the room (ooh)
    Do something kinda unique to me
    Do something that'll make me swoon (ooh)
    That's how I know that I'm not pretending
    I know it's not make believe (ooh)
    It's only complicated if you want it to be
    Do you know what I mean? It's byzantine
    It's byzantine
    It's byzantine
    It's byzantine
    It's byzantine Writer/s: Laura Jane Grace, Rivers Cuomo
