Kooks, The - Ooh La Lyrics




In their eyes is a place that you finally discovered
That you love it here, you've got to stay
On the bottom of the rock, an island
On which you find you love it when you twitch
You feel that itch in you pettycoat
Your pretty pretty pettycoat

Then you smiled, he got wild
You didn't understand that there's money to be made
Beauty is a card that must get played
By organisation

And ooh la, she was such a good girl to me
And ooh la, the world just chewed her up and spat her out
And ooh la, she was such a good girl to me
And ooh la, the world just chewed her up and spat her out

The world can be a very big place
So be yourself don't get out of place
Love your man and love him twice
Go to Hollywood and pay the price
Oh go to Hollywood

And don't be a star, it's such a drag
Take care of yourself, don't begin to lag
It's a hard life to live, so live it well
I'll be your friend and not in pretend
I know you girl
In all situations

And ooh la, she was such a good girl to me
And ooh la, the world just chewed her up and spat her out
And ooh la, she was such a good girl to me
And ooh la, the world just chewed her up and spat her out

Pretty pretty pretty pretty pretty pretty pretty pretty pretty
Pretty pretty pettycoat
Pretty pretty pretty pretty pretty pretty pretty pretty pretty
Pretty pretty pretty pretty pretty pretty pretty pettycoat
In all situations

And ooh la, she was such a good girl to me
And ooh la, the world just chewed her up and spat her out
And ooh la, she was such a good girl to me
And ooh la, the world just chewed her up and spat her out

    Carpe Diem

    Sounds like someone secretly likes this song and doesnt want to show their boyfriend.

  17. Enfys

    Now I find this song when I first heard 7 years ago..
    Cause this song is such beautiful melodies that I don't know how to describe.
    Anyway, it is so special that I can't forget.
    I will know this song was a friend who introduced to me when I in the high school.
    Although the song is not new enough, it is worthy of being appreciated for ages.

  18. Janek Jankowski

  33. Dan Jones

    Im guessing Luke dated a nice looking girl who may of modelled and was caught up in the whole beauty kind of world, by this i mean the media ads of how women are suppose to be.

    She was a good girl to him but too caught up in this.

    He tried and tried to tell her to just be real. not this fake model living by how society thinks you should!

    His song may relate to 1 girl but all in all he is giving a message to everyone.
    Thats really clever!

    Love the Kooks.
    Like to hear other peoples opinion what you think the song is about...
    P.s not stating what i have said is what it is about, thats what it say to me!
    The song has such simple lyrics but says a lot.

    Peace, another P.s, had a few drinks and possibly thinking about shit way to much haha

    anthony jones

    Dan Jones yes Dan 💪

  34. çöldeki simyacı

    In their eyes is the place that you finally discovered

    그들의 눈은 너의 마지막으로 발견한 곳
    That you love it here, you've got to stay

    여기에 있는 너의 사랑이 네게 머물고 있어

    On the bottom of the rock, an island

    섬의 저 밑바닥의 바위위에서
    On which you find you love it when you twitch

    그것을 잡아챌 때 넌 너의 사랑을 찾을 수 있어
    You feel that itch in you pettycoat

    넌 너의 패티코트 속으로 성욕을 느껴
    Your pretty pretty pettycoat 
    너의 패티패티패티코트!(헐,,갑자기 분위기가)
    Then you smiled, he got wild

    넌 웃었고 그는 참 와일드 했어
    You didn't understand that there's money to be made

     돈으로 만들어진 그곳을 넌 이해할수 없어
    Beauty is a card that must get played

    아름다움은 즐겨줘야 할 카드야
    By organisation 
    organisaton 에선
    And ooh la, she was such a good girl to me

    그녀는  내게 좋은 소녀였지
    And ooh la, the world just chewed her up, and spat her out

     그녀는 그 세계에 지쳤고 그렇다고 내뱉었어
    And ooh la, she was such a good girl to me

    그녀는 내게 좋은 소녀였지
    And ooh la, the world just chewed her up, and spat her out 
    그녀는 그 세계에 지쳤고 그렇다고 내뱉었어
    The world can be a very big place

    그 새계는 매우큰 장소일수 있어(출세할 수있는 장소인듯)
    So be yourself don't get out of place

    그래서 네 자신은 거길 벗어날 수없어
    Love your man and love him twice

    사랑하는 너의 그사람과 두배로 사랑하는 그

    Go to Hollywood and pay the price

    할리우드로 가서 그 값을 치뤄
    Oh go to Hollywood 
    할라우드로 가
    And don't be a star, it's such a drag 
    질질 끌려가는 건 스타가 아니야

    Take care of yourself, don't begin to lag

    네 자신에게 관심가질 거리를 만들어, 인기가 떨어지지 않도록
    It's a hard life to live, so live it well

    그건 매우 어려운 삶을 사는 거야  그러니까 능숙하게 잘해내야해
    I'll be your friend and not in pretend

    속이지만 않는다면 너의 친구가 되겠어
    I know you girl

    난 너란 소녀를 알아
    In all situations 
    이 모든 상황속의

    And ooh la, she was such a good girl to me 
    And ooh la, the world just chewed her up, and spat her out 
    And ooh la, she was such a good girl to me 
    And ooh la, the world just chewed her up, and spat her out 

    Pretty pretty pretty pretty pretty pretty pretty pretty pretty 
    Pretty pretty pretty pretty pretty pretty pretty pettycoat 
    Pretty pretty pretty pretty pretty pretty pretty pretty pretty 
    Pretty pretty pretty pretty pretty pretty pretty pettycoat 
    In all situations 

    (팬으로서의 얘기같은데요? 근데 그 분한테 패티코트 많이 중요한듯...;;)

     


    And ooh la, she was such a good girl to me 
    And ooh la, the world just chewed her up, and spat her out 
    And ooh la, she was such a good girl to me 
    And ooh la, the world just chewed her up, and spat her out

    NiizZe WoRk here!! Congratz !!!! :) :)

  45. TL swog

    this dude is a great singer.

    V M

    He's an average singer. It's his style of singing the thing that is awesome about him. Pretty unique

    Nina Dobrev

    @V M He surely is not average singer, yet I don't believe he's an outstanding singer. Somewhere inbetween, maybe more towardsa average, but no way you can call him plain simple average.

    V M

    @Nina Dobrev maybe in style and voice he is more unique than average but in technique he is definitely average

  46. terri whyalla

    juhiuyiy

  47. Otter D

    que rica canción

  48. Bautista Garcia

    The lyrics remind me a porn actress, but the official video doesn´t look like it´s about that. Just saying...

    Jim Tim

    Bautista Garcia I know it's a late reply.. Don't know about the lyrics but the video was about model Audrey Lindvall who died in a road accident while she was riding her bicycle..they knew her very well so they made the video dedicated to her.

    Stephen Key

    Bautista Garcia I was thinking of a porn actress who committed suicide in 94- savannah

  49. Ryan Parnell

    This song makes me wanna learn how to play guitar and sing this

    Jessica Wilson

    indierock g2000 I’m northern 😂

    YTmademepickanewname

    Did you do it in the end?

    Onkel Pappkov

    Hi, just a random guy playing the guitar to accompany my singing chiming in to say I started very late on a whim. Took me about 3 months to harmonize with easy songs like this and after like 5-6 months I could strum reliably, somewhat in time and from the heart while singing.

    What it takes is

    • *A guitar.* You need one. I started on a broken one from my mom, nylon strings are easier than steel. First one I bought was a small one I liked, used, for 30€. For 80 or so, you'll find a good used, non-broken guitar to start you out over your first 2 years. If you have the money, buy a better one for 300. It's worth it.

    • A wall mount for the guitar (15 quid). If you put it in a bag, it's gone. If it's over your bed, you'll take it off sometimes and just hold it. And when you hold it, you'll strum it. And when you do, you'll learn.

    • A tuner (15 bucks) because tuning by ear is hard and comes over time. Nylon strings detune as soon as someone opens a window. Definitely get a clip tuner that you can keep on the guitar so it's always there.

    • A capodaster (15 bucks). Best to use a clamp capo that you can take off and move easily. Before you learn bars, you're going to play all songs in open chords with two fingers and a capo helps you play along to a song.

    • Eventually, a pack of extra strings, a clipper, a winder, possibly pincers, depending on your guitar, so you can change broken strings. This will be part of the things you do regularly as a player. Takes time to understand how but is pretty easy after a while.

    • Some stickers, a marker to draw hearts on and some furniture to bump the guitar against over the years. It's just an instrument to you. Maintain it, change the strings, don't use it for fighting, don't step on it, but otherwise make it yours. She wants it. Don't prop her up on the shelf to stay pristine. She makes music, nothing else. When you get your first 3000 bucks guitar, you'll know to avoid damage. But you need an outdoors model, too.

    • The knowledge and wisdom coming over time that ultimate guitar is shit and by the time you've learned your first 5 chords, you are decidedly better than 80% of all people on there. Still a nice tool for beginners. Just don't give 5 stars to every shitty sheet in the wrong key.

    • Last but not least, a subscription to my magical learning podcast. Nah, just fucking around. Learning how to play is a function of time spent with the guitar, interest in playing, understanding and interest in music theory, patience and attentiveness, learning speed and resilience to your finger tips hurting like a bitch because strings do hurt. There is no way to speed it up effectively. Guitar teachers and online videos do help by giving great pointers but eventually, the work is yours. Make it yours.

    That'll be $50 plus VAT, please.

    ---

    Also, when you get there, key is Bbm. I had a listen. Chords are Bbm, Gb, Ebm, Bbm into Ab for verse. Gb, Bbm, Ab, Ebm for chorus. Capo on 1st fret and you can play easy chords (Am F Dm G and shit). Best of efforts to you.

    Finlay Edwards

    What’s stopping you?

    lucas ibañez puchades

    It's too hard to do both things at once

  50. Isabela Júlia

    I'm so in love with this song <3

    Enfys

    Me too.

  51. Revolutions88

    PRETTY PETTICOAT!!!!

    Dan Terry

  53. Millie Murfit

    I love this song, haven't heard it in ages! :'D @Beth Jean 

    Beth Jean

    Oh my gosh! This song 😍😍😍🙌🙌🙌

  54. Sori Williams

    I Fucking love the beggining of this song... until the chorus, but the lyrics are just AWESOME!

    MoiNoisette

    +Sori Williams I totally agree,, hate that chorus, LOVE all the rest.... An dthe music is just amazing!!

    meme

    chorus flows perfectly, stop being edgy.

  55. Faith Iyahen

    And ooh laa, the world just chewed her up and spat her out !

  56. Jelila Jenkinson

    'the world can be a very big place, so be yourself don't get out of place' 
    gosh. 

    Stephen Towers

    Gosh, what a good word to describe this tune, there quality aren't they

    Sean Kilburn

    Feel out of place *

  57. sss

    love this song

  58. Johan Vander Beken

    in all situation,i know you,girl:) so a nice song

  59. Beverley Caddigan

    This is really good.

  60. A Rebel Without A Clue e

    The drummer killed it in this song.

  61. treehouse722

    People shouldn't get too hung up on the lyrics here.

    This song is about melody and perfect production. It's simply about the glorious sound of the thing. Don't worry about anything after that.

    Dukes

    I think its the complete opposite, the lyrics are the base to any song and the melody and production comes 2nd...if you cant sing a song acoustically with the same effect then it has no real long term value

    Kelsey Femi

    My husband is a music producer and engineer so I absolutely agree with you! Whenever he makes a song for someone I always end up ignoring their lyrics and listening to his beat.

  62. SomeonelikeYou64

    Can someone tell me what the song is really about ? :$

    Julia Dat

    A naive girl the narrator knew who moved to america to succeed in some creative field - actress, probably - and crashed badly with the cynic nature of that environment in the states.

    Stephen Key

    Julia Dat as do most who go to that toxic poisonous place... Hollywood

  63. Baja Hladikova

    God damn it, those lyrics are just amazing.

  64. Cordelia Lea

    story of my life.

  65. Emy Lambert

    love this song ...ohh la he was such a good boy to me lol

  66. Aybüke Güngör

    CORRECTION. John Lennon did lots of things. So did Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr and George Harrison. To our ears and souls. They will always be in our hearts as talented and awesome as they've always been.

    Stephen Key

    Aybüke Güngör fuck off the Beatles couldn't even sing FFS... These guys are underrated but so much better

  67. MarinaPlaschg

    ''what did john lennon ever do?? get shot'' -
    are you f*ing serious?

  68. Eve Hogan

    Still awesome 5 years later

  69. Andres Izquierdo Ybazeta

    and then getting hit by a car in her way.

    Stephen Key

    Andres Izquierdo Ybazeta haha fuck u disrespectful toss pot

  70. cheesycheeseize

  81. jjjrd

    Why the fuck is Black Veil Brides in the suggestions?
