MUNA - It's Gonna Be Okay, Baby Lyrics




You're gonna move to New York
And experiment with communism
Go down on a girl
After reading her some Frantz Fanon
And you'll go out of your way
Trying to find some place you can hide and get high
You're gonna think about suicide
Yeah, you're gonna call your mom

It's gonna be okay, baby
It's gonna be okay
It's gonna be okay, baby
It's gonna be okay

You're gonna cut off your hair
With dull scissors from the desk in your dorm room
Learn by trial and error
That threesomes are more sad than fun
You're gonna move to LA
Guess you're running away from the patterns you have
And the decisions that you've made
Yeah, you're gonna sit in the sun

It's gonna be okay, baby
It's gonna be okay
It's gonna be okay, baby
It's gonna be okay

You're gonna smoke cigarettes
On the ground beside the pool at Stardust
You're gonna get obsessed
With a boy who's hooked on heroin
You'll have some all-time nights
Dancing outside with LCD on the speaker
And you're drinking dark pink wine
Yeah, and you're gonna lose those friends

It's gonna be okay, baby
It's gonna be okay
It's gonna be okay, baby
It's gonna be okay

You're gonna fall in love
With a girl, which you were not expecting
You're gonna start a band
It's just her, another friend, and you
And then you get freaked out
You say something about how you just can't commit
And you move into your aunt's house
Yeah, and all your dreams come true

It's gonna be okay, baby
It's gonna be okay
It's gonna be okay, baby
It's gonna be okay

You're gonna come to depend
On the sex of a sadistic stranger
You're gonna learn to pretend
Yeah, you lie about it to save face
Until the morning you awake
In the deepest of pain that you've even been in
And you admit you've gotta quit him
Yeah, you're gonna learn to pray

It's gonna be okay, baby
It's gonna be okay (It's gonna be okay)
It's gonna be okay, baby
It's gonna be okay (It's gonna be okay)

You're gonna start to call friends
You're gonna start to call yourself an addict
You finally read "Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance"
You're gonna clean out your drawers
You're gonna feel much more like God is a mystery
And Jesus is a metaphor
Yeah, you're gonna tell your reflection

It's gonna be okay, baby
It's gonna be okay (It's gonna be okay)
It's gonna be okay, baby
It's gonna be okay (It's gonna be okay)

It's gonna be okay
It's gonna be okay

MUNA It's Gonna Be Okay, Baby Comments
  1. Amira H.

    I hope I will be receiving a royalty check for the use of my life story.

  2. Megan Elizabeth

    This song is exactly what I needed to hear right now 💕

  3. A. F

    wait this is good 😳

  4. mrpohpoh

    Love your sound. Hope 1975 collabs with yall.

  5. yung zouis

    i cry in all it's gonna be okay babies

  6. Ryan Harju

    I really hope this becomes a single before the end of this albums cycle. I've never NEEDED a song before. But I did need this. The affirmation, this mantra of reminding yourself that life happens and you're okay still, it's so much. Not too much either, it's enough. And it's light. And I can't help but cry, and smile. Thank you to MUNA, for now, for before, for all of it. 💖😭💖

  7. cantforgetyou

    Very good and fresh production and melody. I really like it.

  8. Madison Clayton

    One of those last verses rly puts In My Way in a whole new light omg

  9. M A S Q U E R A D E S

    Everyone needs to hear this.

  10. Lily L.

    you don’t have to move to ny to experiment w communism; start now!!!!

    TheBIGJake111

    Lily L. You missed the point of the song

    Lily L.

    TheBIGJake111 it isn’t a thesis? there can be more than one point to a song; it’s like a porcupine in that way. anyways, you don’t have to move to ny to go down on a girl!!

  11. Chancimus Prime

    So specific but so relatable to me at least 😭😭😭

  12. OKRLU

    ugh, this album is everything.

  13. Lee Bailey

    Reading these comments makes me so happy. This song invokes so many things in so many us. We are more alike than we are different, folks. What they did with this song is pure magic.

  14. SCELEAN

    💙📣

  15. Robyn Retro

    So this is eerily close to both where I'm at and where I've been in my life. Katie is a gem, that's for sure. Thank you for being vulnerable for all of us who are not there yet. It's honestly the most genuinely encouraging (and slightly scary) thing I have come across in this extremely weird time of my life where the question whether or not it is ever going to actually be okay has been popping up almost daily.

  16. Randi Moreno

    This song has only been out for a few days but I can close my eyes and be completely away from wherever I am. I smile and sometimes I cry but it’s just what I needed; to tell myself it’s gonna be okay.

  17. Marko Adino

    why does it reminds me of winterbreak and i know a place the intro.

    christian Camlin

    The Music here is quite similar to Winter break . It seems to be a pop recitative of some sort . Winter break is also but is more melancholy and uses thick harmony in unusual spots. They are Not the same but very close to it .

  18. Stefarooh

    Best song on the new album. What a stunner. Incredible song writing. Emotional, mature. You girls could teach the more modern pop stars a thing or two about writing and composing a good song.

  19. Danielle Cristina

    I love you guys ❤

  20. Yuri Sypher

    I love your songs <3. Hope you get a big hit!

  21. felix navarro

    Wait, you guys? Did Katie reveal that she's in love with one of the girls? She says: "You're gonna fall in love with a girl, which you were not expecting. You're gonna start a band. It's just HER, another friend, and you." Maybe I'm reaching, but those two verses are making me question EVERYTHING! I can't believe I've known about this song for hours, and I'm just now speculating that! WTF??

    Suraj Arvind

    felix navarro yep, i think she’s singing about josette 😬

    felix navarro

    @Suraj Arvind Me, too;)

    alina rodriguez

    For a moment I thought I was the only one who's believed that. Great song... Too much meanings

  22. Asifkhan Niazi

    I m predicting this MUNA will be the super shinning star on music sky ..let's see how they aproched the listeners now aged in 40-50 who love the music of 80's --90's along with new young generation .God /Allah/Adios/Bhagwan what ever we called Him bless this band with His best of the Best .Ameen

    christian Camlin

    No joke !!!

  23. 93wildflowers

    This is such a good song and a great closer for the album! Is this about Katie’s life? She said she fell in love with a girl and started a band with her. Who is she referring to?

    Suraj Arvind

    93wildflowers yes it is, i think the girl is josette

    93wildflowers

    Suraj Arvind That’s what I was thinking!

  24. Laura Katherine Hayes

    Well, this is a perfect pop song.

  25. Craig A

    Brilliant song. Does anyone else think this is the girls talking about their younger selves?

    Suraj Arvind

    Craig A it’s about katie gavin’s life story actually

    Craig A

    Suraj Arvind ah I thought it might be!

  26. Wahab Monster

    THIS IS WOW, I'M FUCKING SPEECHLESS MY GIRLIES DID IT AGAIN WITH "SAVES THE WORLD"

  27. felix navarro

    I'm crying/smiling;) Oh, God...

  28. R L

    This was my life, except I went down on a boy after reading Niche.

    Justin LaRocque

    I don't remember writing this

  29. orion campbell

    Wow, all these songs are very emotion invoking. They seem like they come from a more personal place. I love this album already.
