Franz Ferdinand - Jacqueline Lyrics

Jacqueline was seventeen
Working on a desk
When Ivor
Peered above a spectacle
Forgot that he had wrecked a girl
Sometimes these eyes
Forget the face they're peering from
When the face they peer upon
Well, you know
That face as i do
And how in the return of tha gaze
She can return you the face
That you are staring from

It's always better on holiday
So much better on holiday
That's why we only work when
We need the money

Gregor was down again
Said come on, kick me again
Said i'm so drunk
I don't mind if you kill me
Come on you gutless
I'm alive
I'm alive
I'm alive
And how i know it
But for chips and for freedom
I could die

It's always better on holiday...

    Bill Marks

  12. Munetoshi Yamasaki

    This is what I do. I only work when I need money. So, I have no stresses. Other people are working all day a week and they don't have time to do anything fun or jobs will catch up and they'll wake up from the fantasies.

    Jacqueline was seventeen, working on a desk
    When Ivor peered above a spectacle
    Forgot that he had wrecked a girl
    Sometimes these eyes forget the face they're peering from
    When the face they peer upon
    Well, you know that face as I do
    And how in the return of the gaze
    She can return you the face that you are staring from

    It's always better on holiday, so much better on holiday
    That's why we only work when we need the money
    It's always better on holiday, so much better on holiday
    That's why we only work when we need the money

    Gregor was down again, said, "Come on, kick me again"
    Said, "I'm so drunk, I don't mind if you kill me
    Come on, you gutless
    Yeah, I'm alive, oh, I'm alive
    Oh, I'm alive and how I know it
    Oh, but for chips and for freedom, I could die"

    It's always better on holiday, so much better on holiday
    That's why we only work when we need the money
    It's always better on holiday, so much better on holiday
    That's why we only work when we need the money

    It's always better on holiday, so much better on holiday
    That's why we only work when we need the money
    It's always better on holiday, so much better on holiday
    That's why we only work when we, we need the money.

    The Fakey Cake Maker

    Ich heiße Fantastisch, ich trinke Champers mit Lachsfisch

  14. Lis C

    When I was 17, I had a good friend Jacqueline, I used to sing it to her while working. We are now 30... omg I am depressed now hahaha

  15. BertleMcGertle

    He's Jacqueline

  16. Rian McGrath

    Just matched with a Jacqueline on tinder. Gonna drop this bomb and if she doesn't like it, she's not the one.

    The search will continue...

    Oogly Boogly Boo

    What happened?

    The Fakey Cake Maker

    @Oogly Boogly Boo nothing because this didn't happen.

    Snow Hound

    @The Fakey Cake MakerUsually when people talk shit, I just brush it off, but now, it's gone a little to far. Assclown, you talk as you know me but in reality you don't know shit about me. I'm guessing you've never been in a situation involving a real live thug that was born and raised in the ghetto/hood(me). Yes i've turned my life to good, but i will throw all that out the window if you continue to talk shit about me. I've killed a few people back in my banging days and Just remember next time before you open your mouth, you better be praying that i'm in a good mood, or else you'll be in for a rude awakening when the thug in me unleashes.


    @Snow Hound that was very unnecessary


    @ReedAckerman indeed

  17. Charsept

    That intro...

  33. Zyanya Halliwell McCartney

    Me gusta que mi nombre sea raro, porque jamas habrá otra "Zyanya" donde yo me encuentre, pero aveces envidio que jamas habrá una canción con mi nombre, de alguna banda tan chingona como Franz Ferdinand o así

  34. 356-993

    this is fucking solid... it still sounds as fresh as the day it was released.

  35. nmirceac

  53. jason B sad

    i dont know but i feel like this could be something you hear on Nuggets or something

  54. Alexia Is On Fire

    Bill Marks

  55. Nikola Vizec

    One of those bands that are seriously underrated.

    Ilija Milosevic

    You stole my words, man. These guys are extremely good and they are really talented (I still haven't found a single bad song from them). Also, this is one of the best songs ever!!!

    George Lally

    They are very underrated. It's a shame music isn't like this anyone.

    Sabeza Hall

    Each to their own taste, to be honest I do feel like alot of their songs have the same vibe, I still like them and ended up here looking back on them. I personally myself wouldn't call them talented, you have to have a special sense for those type of things. I rate ole Ferdinand 4/10

    Chris Morfas

    @Sabeza Hall Yes, after the first two wonderful albums, they couldn't quite keep it going. There was no real evolution. The quality dropped off. But if I make a list of my ten favorite FF songs (including this one) they rate as among my favorite songs of this century. Flew high but burned out :-)

    fede edelstein

    @Ilija Milosevic thats why they get a little bit boring, they dont have bad songs but their style stays very similar and it gets repetitive

  56. Jacqueline Fischer

    Just not quite 17 yet...hehe 😂

    Ilija Milosevic

    Watch out! Ivor is coming!

  57. Jackie M.

    I'm 19 though.


    Did Ivor end up wrecking you?

    Antonio Monte Christo

    20 now, I guess


    That makes you 21 now.

    Michael Edwards

    Well, you WERE 17


    Big ups to everyone who first heard this on Billy Marks part, Good & Evil like 11 freakin years ago... damn time flies when shredding! <3

  59. Curtis Oliver

  74. IronHarper

    To be fair, almost everything is substantially better on holiday. Maybe not herpes.


    Holiday herpes is probably better than rainy-ass-town-local herpes doe.


    one thing that's not better on holiday is a call from your boss

    Guðmundur Ingi Guðmundsson

    Better to have herpes atack on a holiday.. probsbly.
