Sonic Youth - Kool Thing Lyrics




[Kim]
Kool Thing sittin' with a kiddie
Now you know you're sure lookin' pretty
Like a lover not a dancer
Superboy take a chance here
I don't wanna, I don't think so
I don't wanna, I don't think so

Kool Thing let me play it with your radio
Move me, turn me on, baby-o
I'll be your slave
Give you a shave
I don't wanna, I don't think so
I don't wanna, I don't think so
[Chuck D]
Yeah, tell'em about it,
Hit'em where it hurts
Hey, Kool Thing, come here, sit down
There's something I go to ask you.
I just wanna know, what are you gonna do for me?
I mean, are you gonna liberate us girls
From male white corporate oppression?
Tell it like it is!
Huh?
Yeah!
Don't be shy
Word up!
Fear of a female planet?
Fear of a female planet?
Fear, baby!
I just want to know that we can still be friends
Come on, come on, come on, come on let everybody know
Kool thing, kool thing

When you're a star, I know you'll fix everything
Now you know you're sure lookin' pretty
Rock the beat just a little faster
Now I know you are the master
I don't wanna, I don't think so
I don't wanna, I don't think so

Kool thing walkin' like a panther
Come on and give me an answer
Kool thing walkin' like a panther
What'd he say?
I don't wanna, I don't think so
I don't wanna, I don't think so

  7. deus PISTRIS

    Tbh I think the lyrics for this song are piss poor compared to their other songs, some of it just feels so misplaced and forced like they were tryna get anything to make it work, the instrumental is good tho

  8. Healing_ Awakening

    She is beautiful

  9. Eric Radle

    I brought me here / God brought me here / What the fuck ever

  10. Jasper-Holland

    Guitar Hero 3

  11. Ian E Williams

    I'm listening it in 2020!!! 🤘🏼🔥💯

  12. Scott Bishop

    This song is so fucking kool

  13. Charles Patrick

    Kim feels the Bern!!! 🔥🔥🔥

  14. SJ Custom Art

    Hell yeah

  15. Noah Manion

    I like sonic youth and this song but some of these feminazi lyrics are just ridiculous lol. 3rd wave feminism is the biggest joke of all time.

    Pbperez 210

    Noah Manion 3rd wave?? 😂😂

    Noah Manion

    Pbperez 210 an era of feminism in which women’s rights is not what they are fighting for but rather complete domination over men. They make up non exist problems and think they are oppressed when in reality majority of them are just mad because they have daddy issues or can’t hold down a man. None of them don’t even know what they are fighting for.

    Pbperez 210

    Noah Manion I know what you meant. I just thought it was funny you called it “3rd wave” lol

  16. Jared Tinkham

    I ain't know LL Cool J was in this!?!?!?!?!

    Robert Funke

    @Jared Tinkham on video appears *Chuck D leader of political Rap group Public Enemy* . In the lyrics Chuck and Kim says "Fear of a Female planet" in relation to Public Enemy's 1990 lp 'Fear Of A Black Planet'.

  17. Mind Over Minis

    It's 2020 and this song is still about 1 minute too long. But Im' still here in 2020 so I guess...90's weirdness time dilation shit.

  18. Charles Carr

    Amazing song, but man, Chuck D was underused. Couldn't they have given him a verse or something?

  19. its all about the games

    The good stuff

  20. nello spazio

    sonic youth + chuck d = masterpiece

  21. John G.

    I"m sorry but, once they used the letter "K" in Kool and put a clip of Public Enemy in their video, this video became the opposite of the title.

  22. Jasgo04

    This video is a piece of art

  23. Sandra Jovic

    100% amazing.

  24. Veroosh Tarot & Astrology Horoscopes

    2020 brought me here

  25. Johnny Deep

    Didn't even realise at the time how these idiots were actually the harbingers of modern far-left ideology lol, Thurston even went as far as send a letter to Jeremy Corbyn hailing that complete idiot as a "beacon of hope", morons, this is why you shouldn't take political lessons from musicians, actors and junkies. Back then rockstars were the counterculture, now they're the mainstream and many of us who used to love them back then find ourselves rebelling against them as they've become the bee gees of the modern world, funny how time works and how things change.

    People don't realise how good they had it until the whole world changes on them and becomes something even nastier than anything you could've imagined in the 1980s... what i wouldn't give to go back to a time when views like Thurston's were fringe and society hadn't spiralled totally out of control. If communists are what you propose then bring back Reagan.

  26. N. E. Barton

    My favorite Sonic Youth song. Thank you!!
    ... Don't be shy!

  27. Skinny U-NATION

    The instrumental reminds me of nirvana

  28. Richie Mann

    One of the coolest bands ever

  29. Sayantan Mukherjee

    Still a rocker in 2020!

  30. Rob Wilson

  36. John Harter

    Back from my youth, when it was sonic.

    Saw Sonic Youth in concert early 1990s. They opened with this song. That concert f-ing rocked. Excellent band live.

  37. Sauer Kraut

  43. Remedial Gash

    Um really thought Thurston Moore sung this, had never seen the video before, who is she?

    MrCloop The Third

    Are....are you trolling? I hope to the love of whatever God is real, that you're trolling. I need an answer. ARE YOU TROLLING?????

    Remedial Gash

    @MrCloop The Third nah was shitfaced still don't know who girl was - not trolling just off my face. sorry. x

    MrCloop The Third

    @Remedial Gash I see. Well, that is Kim Gordon. One of the founding members of Sonic Youth, bassist and also one of the singers. Was married to Thurston for decades before they broke up, which is why Sonic Youth split. She's a fucking badass and one of the coolest people ever.

  44. c michaels

    sonic youth is the koolest band ever...lee and thurston play guitar better than yr favorites combined...kim will fuck you up with her hotness and bass playing...and steve hits ‘em where you want to hurt...everyone else can eat shit...marzipan...!

  45. Juan Urso

    Reminds me "Simple Men" of Hal Hartley. Great soundtrack! Great film!

  46. Pizza 4Breakfast

    They were against white male corporate oppression before it was kool

  47. SANDOS Nuncio

    Anybody else notice the helter skelter refrence????

  48. Gritos Incoherentes

    Liked them in high school but this is one of those bands you grow up and realize they were mainly overrated rich kid poseurs trying to be "down" LOL... ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ... also, fuck New York 😂

    Edit: FWIW I have the same opinion of Black Flag, they sucked for the same reasons
