Sonic Youth - Purr Lyrics




[Thurston]
Whoahooh!

I love you baby 'cause you're back in time - I love you today
Yr eyes are flashing like a magic sign - the sun comes out to play

I learned it all from you girl - I got it all from you
How to howl the moon yeah - and how to scratch yr dog
I do it every day - come back again tomorrow
You chased it all away

A dreaming beauty sleeping day and night - the sun around you
I love you baby yeah you're superfine - a-comin' down too
A purring whirring fuzzy lights of day - a-switching sunlight
I chase you kitten catch you every time - funny how it flies

I learned it all from you girl - I got it all from you
How to howl the moon yeah - and how to scratch yr dog
I do it every day - come back again tomorrow
You chase the life away

I hear you purring through a supersoul - a-puff in to it
A puss in leather yeah a prince in gold - a leather tale away

I learned it all from you girl - I got it all from you
How to howl the moon yeah - and how to scratch yr dog
I do it every day - come back again tomorrow
You chase the life away

  5. Aaron Everidge

    Sonic youth very loud band that should still be together in my opinion

    a w

    your opinion doesn't count. they are old and done. you wanna be rocking in your 50/60s playing the same shiT with the same people for 30+ years?

    fullskapunk alchemist

    @a w I think they could have put out 2 or 3 more solid records, before they started to get stagnant.

    Destroy X

    a w hahahahahhaha you have reason but shut up

  6. ARCWolf7

    One of the best songs on Dirty. Definitely should have been one of the singles. Drunken Butterfly is a great song, but this would have made a better single in my opinion.

    Whoahooh!

    I love you baby 'cause you're back in time - I love you today
    Yr eyes are flashing like a magic sign - the sun comes out to play

    I learned it all from you girl - I got it all from you
    How to howl the moon yeah - and how to scratch yr dog
    I do it every day - come back again tomorrow
    You chased it all away

    A dreaming beauty sleeping day and night - the sun around you
    I love you baby yeah you're superfine - a-comin' down too
    A purring whirring fuzzy lights of day - a-switching sunlight
    I chase you kitten catch you every time - funny how it flies

    I learned it all from you girl - I got it all from you
    How to howl the moon yeah - and how to scratch yr dog
    I do it every day - come back again tomorrow
    You chase the life away

    I hear you purring through a supersoul - a-puff in to it
    A puss in leather yeah a prince in gold - a leather tale away

    I learned it all from you girl - I got it all from you
    How to howl the moon yeah - and how to scratch yr dog
    I do it every day - come back again tomorrow
    You chase the life away

    Fuck Thurston. He's good but nothing w/o Kim. The back and forth of dark groove and upbeat dank between their songs is what made SY the best. Love them both but Kim is teh awesome.

    Hmax-Hx Hmax

    Kim isn't that much w/o T as well) so i wouldn't go so far as "fuck Thurston"

  9. Ruben Chapman

    Wa-hoo!

    I love you baby 'cause you're back in time
    I love you today
    Your eyes are flashing like a magic sign
    The sun comes out to play

    I learned it all from you, girl
    I got it all from you
    How to howl at the moon, yeah
    And how to scratch your dog
    I do it every day
    Come back again tomorrow
    You chased it all away

    A dreaming beauty sleeping day and night
    The sun around you
    I love you baby yeah, you're superfine
    A-claw me down, too
    A purring, whirring, fuzzy like today
    Switching sunlight
    I chase you kitten, catch you every time
    Funny how it flies

    I learned it all from you, girl
    I got it all from you
    How to howl at the moon, yeah
    And how to scratch your dog
    I do it every day
    Come back again tomorrow
    You chase the life away

    I hear you purring through a supersoul
    I puff into it
    A puss in leather, yeah a prince in gold
    A leather tale away

    I learned it all from you, girl
    I got it all from you
    How to howl at the moon, yeah
    And how to scratch your dog
    I do it every day
    Come back again tomorrow
    You chase the life away
