Frightened Rabbit - Behave! Lyrics




Okay stop.
Okay start.
And please me, I don't care how.
Stop me and please me now,
Oh, with your mouth.
Big bad, big bad ape in a prison room.
He's just itching to telephone you,
Oh, with his mouth.

Behave, behave.
I don't know quite how to behave.

Patience, patience.
Leaves me with a cross to bear
Leaves me, I don't know where.
Then it leaves me out.

Distance, distance.
Oh, leaves me, I'm ashamed to say.
I make a mess on the stage with my mouth.

Behave, behave!
I don't know quite how to behave.
Behave!
I don't have a clue how to behave when I'm around you.
Behave around you.
Behave around you!

    Thank you, Scott. You brought plenty of joy and empathy to this world.

    I love this band. They may have sogged into over produced tracks but oh well. They sound great

    I love Frightened Rabbit, and this song. They have lyrics on their site now, copied below. I always thought it was "okay stop", too, and "a mess on the stage", but never heard "big bad ate". Glad to have clarification on "dross" vs "cross", though I had to look it up. :)

    Okay stab, okay stab
    Please me I don't care how
    Stab me and please me now
    with your mouth
    A big bad, big bad
    ape in a prison room
    He's just itching to telephone you
    with his mouth
    Behave! Behave!
    I don't know quite how to behave
    Patience, patience
    Leaves me with dross to bear
    Leaves me, I don't know where
    Then it leaves me out
    Distance, distance
    leaves me, I'm ashamed to say
    where I’ll make a mess on the stairs
    with my mouth
    Behave! Behave!
    I don't know quite how to behave
    Behave!
    I don't have a clue how to behave when I'm around you
    Behave around you

    Saw them live in Dunoon. Nothing better than drinking for fourteen hours and being entertained with the musical stylings of Frightened Rabbit :D.

    I got this album yesterday, and I heard this track nearly 20times.
    FR - come here to Germany very soon, especially to the North.
    Swin, until you CAN see the land of Schleswig-Holstein/Hamburg. ;-)
