Mystery Jets - Greatest Hits Lyrics




You can take The Lexicon of Love away
But I'm keeping Remain in Light
You can take away It's A Shame About Ray
But I'm holding on to Country Life
Well you can keep No Need To Argue and I'll keep The Aeroplane Over The Sea
But hold on to The Boy With The Arab Strap
'Cause I'm holding on to Village Green

I don't know if the knot just needs untangling
Cassette tapes get stuck all the time
But either way I'm keeping Double Nickels On The Dime

These were our greatest hits
(Sha la la la la la la la, sha la la la la)
The best of me and you
(Sha la la la la la la la, sha la la la la)

I still remember buying you Band On The Run
On the first day that we kissed
But you always did prefer McCartney One
'Cause it reminded you of being a kid
No way you're having This Nation's Saving Grace
You only listen to it when you're pissed
But when you sober up, it's always why the fuck
Are you still listening to Mark E. Smith?

I don't know if the knot just needs untangling
Or if we forgot which way's up and which way is down
But still the tape keeps going round and round...

These were our greatest hits
(Sha la la la la la la la, sha la la la la)
The best of me and you
(Sha la la la la la la la, sha la la la la)
The best of me and you

But still the tape keeps going round and round...

These were our greatest hits
(Sha la la la la la la la, sha la la la la)
The best of me and you
(Sha la la la la la la la, sha la la la la)
Our Desert Island Discs
(Sha la la la la la la la, sha la la la la)
The best of me and you

    You can take 'The Lexicon of Love' away but I'm keeping Remain in Light'
    You can take away 'It's a Shame About Ray' but I'm holding on to 'Country
    Life'
    You can keep 'No Need to Argue' and I'll keep 'The Aeroplane Over the Sea'
    But hold on to 'The Boy with the Arab Strap' 'cause I'm holding on to 'Village
    Green'

    I don't know if the knot just needs untangling 'cause the tapes get stuck all the time
    Either way I'm keeping 'Double Nickels on the Dime'

    These were our greatest hits (Shalalalalalalala Shalalalala)
    The best of me and you(Shalalalalalalala Shalalalala)
    These were our greatest hits (Shalalalalalalala Shalalalala)
    The best of me and you

    I still remember buying you 'Band on the Run' on the first day that we kissed
    But you always did prefer 'McCartney I' because it reminded you of being a kid

    No way your having 'This Nation's Saving Grace' you only listen to it when your pissed
    But when you sober up it's always "why the fuck are you still listening to Mark E. Smith?"

    I don't know if the knot just needs untangling or if we forgot which way's up and which way is down
    But still the tape keeps going round and round

    These were our greatest hits (Shalalalalalala lalalalala)
    The best of me and you (Shalalalalalala Shalalalala)
    The best of me and you
    Of me and you

    Good answer. Nothing more from my peanut factory...lol

  35. Kamila Ciuła

    I don't agree. Her beauty isn't ordinary, but it's why I think she'sso pretty. It makes her different and special.

  36. travelinblues89

  61. Bradley Patey'

    AMAZING!

  62. numberstation

    Jacamo can fuck RIGHT off.

  63. MrsFish7

    ...good track!......sounds a LOT like Lawrence from Felt/Denim...

  64. Jim071

    Reminds me of belle and Sebastian, great track!

  65. Nabor Torres

    i saw many comment in the web about this song and many of them says that this song is pretty much like coffe and tv of Blur.. i think it sound most like a Belle and sebastian's song.. i think mystery jets wanted to make a tribute to them.. even in the video appears the cover of the album The boy with the arab strap of B.a. S , i think they did a great job .. i like this band, i like this song...

  66. cackermuffin

    actually sounds a LOT like hefner. good job guys!! great tune - love blaine's vocal.

  67. Michelle Swami

    ONe of the dudes from this band is disabled right? I honestly haven't listened to this band in YEARS

  68. meganpeggy

    i love this band so much..

  69. Emily R

    Great vid guys
    song makes me wanna dance

  70. JurrassicParrot

    Yeah it sounds like stealers wheel, and those 'sha-la-la's' could be in any kinks song, but as it's a song about music, I think it's deliberate, and it works

  71. Jacob Watkins

    Stealers Wheel for like the first 10 seconds. There is no originality left in the world. Your bound to have that with all the rhythm and good sounding chord combinations reused a thousand times each. Just try writing a song and you will discover this for yourself.

  72. powerpuffMC

    uwm.fm

  73. Thomas Benn

    This is ripping off Stealers Wheel a little TOO hard

  74. 91Pash

    Great tune, and in no way does it come across clichéd with all the references, as other bands have tried and failed.

  75. Bradley Buxton

    BRAVO... sick man

  76. karen Zuchis

    Excelent!!!!!!!!

  77. NarcoticDaisies

    blaine is so hot

  78. David Roseti

    Seems like James Dean it's saying... "SHOOT TO ELVIS" xD

  79. David Roseti

    2:05 LEYEND!! ;)

  80. Rui Maia

    It's a Shame About Ray by the lemonheads it's awesome.

  81. Georgia Cabb

    Love this video! And the song, Also my sister Alex is on the horse 'Tally' at 3:53 and onwards, She was the stunt double :) x

  82. Peter Johnson

    No way I would let her have The Boy With The Arab Strap!!

  83. not a doge

    blaine what a babe :)

  84. Charlie Alcock

    Neutral Milk Hotel!

  85. Lois Davies

    So great, I was so looking forward to this coming out!.. But who is this girl? <3

  86. Alexis C

    Absolute quality! Everything these guys do!

  87. AgentMcQueen

    Stealers Wheel 'Stuck In The Middle With You'.

  88. Ellways

    Aeroplane Over The Sea and It's a Shame About Ray, so glad they get a mention Neutral Milk Hotel and Lemonheads are so great and so underrated!

  89. 0000Francesca

    belle and sebastian <3 the boy with the arab strap

  90. Rosie Lees

    Definitely one of my favourite tracks off the album ♥
