Stella Donnelly - Tricks Lyrics



You had dinner at Jude's and you broke all the plates
Telling your favourite joke where you break all the plates
You threw all of your clothes off the back of the boat
You said that you're gonna quit but we know that you won't
You won't you won't

You only like me when I do my tricks for you
And you wear me out like you wear that southern cross tattoo
You said I'd look much better if I dropped the attitude
Leave it alone, leave it alone, leave it alone, leave it alone

You've got all of your ducks lined up in a row
Driving back from the job with Kyle and Jackie-O
You want all of us to pull you out of the muck
You're always wanting a kiss but then you want to get laid
Get laid, get laid

You only like me when I do my tricks for you
And you wear me out like you wear that southern cross tattoo
You said I'd look much better if I dropped the attitude
Leave it alone, leave it alone, leave it alone, leave it alone

You only like me when I do my tricks for you
And you wear me out like you wear that southern cross tattoo
You said I'd look much better if I dropped the attitude
Leave it alone, leave it alone, leave it alone, leave it alone

    LYRICS

    [Verse 1]
    You had dinner at Jude's and you broke all the plates
    Telling your favourite joke where you break all the plates
    You threw all of your clothes off the back of the boat
    You said that you’re gonna quit but we know that you won't
    You won't, you won’t

    [Chorus]
    You only like me when I do my tricks for you
    You wear me out like you wear that southern cross tattoo
    You said I'd look much better if I dropped the attitude
    Leave it alone, leave it alone, leave it alone, leave it alone

    [Verse 2]
    You've got all of your ducks lined up in a row
    Driving back from the job with Kyle and Jackie-O
    You want all of us to pull you out of the muck
    You're always wanting a kiss and then you want to get laid
    Get laid, get laid

    [Chorus]
    You only like me when I do my tricks for you
    And you wear me out like you wear that southern cross tattoo
    You said I'd look much better if I dropped the attitude
    Leave it alone, leave it alone, leave it alone, leave it alone

  26. bob burroughs

    Probably my favourite track so far this year.

  27. gerald 413

    This different hearing English from New Zealand or Australia. Once my ex almost started a fight on a flight overseas with a N.Z. womens Soccer team. She said because the flight was so long she said " i'm tired of being on the airplane with all these Australians". They got up out of their seats to kick her arse but i stood up and explained she is just one stupid American woman and don't know the difference. They then realized what we all were dealing with. They Still wanted to kock her azz. Finally we got to Hawaii where i suffered 3 years of her lyong and creeping. Thank god i never will she her dumb azz again. Maybe i should have let the New Zealand team have a GO AT HER ANYWAY??? HUH?

  28. Brett Sylvester

    Australian female singers take note: this is how to sing with an aussie accent and not sound like garbage

  29. luisafonsoandre

    Maaan that revel guitar :) awesome song Stella

  30. ropeadopaderp

    oh geez who is this chick just heard hear in background thats pretty bangin. australian?

    Gene Wilson

    ropeadopaderp yeah she’s Australian.

    ropeadopaderp

    @Gene Wilson That's a catchy as hell chorus. and her little dancing jigs are fun as hell. Leave it aloneeeee leavee it aloneeeee. I could have used a 3rd chorus at the end.



    I looked at her wiki and some critic called it like an album ode to shitty men which I don't think I want to sit through but ill have try a few other songs. Hopefully poppy like this. Good recommendation by youtube algorithm

  31. bob burroughs

    Wonderful. Really getting into the album and 'Tricks' one of the best. Song of the year.

  32. Poofy Locs

    Definitely a groovy tune, really dig the live version from kexp, very ecstatic. Good stuff

  33. Lily Levine

    Me gusta tu música, Stella. Sigue componiendo así de lindo y cantando también lindo, seguramente los éxitos vendrán, pero, por favor, sigue siendo diferente del resto. Un abrazo y buenos deseos desde Lima, Perú.

  41. itsallgoodtoday

  42. Cak Redi

    *It's so 90s, I'm gonna pimp my sneakers.*

  43. smallsongs

    Nosebleeders HQ

    definitely!

  44. Sherene O'Shaughnessy

    If you like this artist, you may admire the work of Laura Mulcahy. Her music is incredible.

  45. Stuart Hickson

    Is that outfit ironic? Great song though although I have no idea what "wear me like you wear that southern cross tattoo' is supposed to mean.

    roan toto

    Stuart Hickson it refers to tattoos of the australian flag

  46. Oliver Tagayun

    great set Stella at the Opera house live your solo performance :)

  47. John Roberts

    Fantastic tune! It sorta has that mid 70s soft rock/Hotel California vibe to it

  48. Xavier

    My Favorite part of the song was From 0:00 to 4:07

  49. Sara López

    Hola Maria José! 🤣

  50. Scott Smith

    NPR "the current" brought me here

  51. Berko Yalman

    I work at H&M and your fucking song is always fucking on and it fucking pisses me off and so does your fucking accent in the fucking song. So fuck that!

  52. rambo the best

    this is really good stuff, stella's voice is so charming and upbeat. Besides, the instrumental on their own are perfectly crafted indie-pop tunes, oozing with personality... Oh and amazing chorus on top of that.
    She seems to me like a less artsy version of U.S. Girls (which is really saying something)

  53. David Auberti

    Great personality Love it!

  54. Lloyd Librando

    goddamnit i was so sure she was gonna say fuck

  55. Adam Hudson

    You said id look much better if i dropped my underpants

  56. Crocus

    Getting some strong Elaine Benes / Pippi Longstocking vibes from the outfit

  57. Aaron Matier

    For anyone else working in retail, this song is fucking hell to listen to. jesus christ.

  58. something epic like Creed

    that guy did more spins in this video than zhenya medvedeva in her entire career, must feel dizzy..

  59. Reg Hunt

    Loving this, becoming a fan for sure. But she needs to buy some more clothes.

  60. Arnost Csicsina

    what the hell is this??

    Shtwaan E.

    The world of music beyond baseball caps and autotuned schlongs.

  61. countrypaul

    Sorry - I'm gonna take you advice, Stella, and leave it alone.

  62. Mark Grabban

    I’m honestly so sick of hearing this stupid fucking song playing at work. Most idiotic lyrics ever. Just stop.

  63. Gus s

    she kinda like a female mac demarco

    souza

    Dont push it

    Gus s

    @souza you dont see it? her little guitar rifts, lyrical tonality even that little cackle in there all really remind me of papa mac

  64. snowvibesz

    amazing song

  65. Ch0c0T45t1C

    Bloody beautiful, and SO relevant for our times. Thanks for telling it like it is, Stella <3

  66. AaA

    Absolute tune

  67. Trus jr

    Love all the lyrics! Classic, lmao 😁 bit of a lefty/feminist anthem i reckon

  68. sirvidia

    Saw a Fjallraven Kanken and switched off

  69. Aviv Rogovski ראש ביצה

    Your album is magnificent, please please please come to Israel

  70. Dustin Rodriguez

    Am I the only one strongly reminded of Frente by this?

  71. AtheistOnTheEdge

    When I first heard this song, I was like, "I'm all for Triple J getting behind Australian song writers, but this song is shit!" But after I heard it a few times, I freakin love it now! I think it was the lyrics that got to me first, then the melody and then the simple yet catchy chorus.

  72. Knight

    Just heard this on triple J.. logged into youtube and came to this page just to downvote it.. That's how absolutely awful it is.

  73. Tre’ Blaze

    glad i heard this song in a store its a bop

  74. gerald 413

    Whoa! Do us Men really Act that Rude???

    gerald 413

    Oops! Guess we need to learn manners. :\

  75. Gram Whitton

    Ever playing in Brisbane?

  76. nutsbum

    how did she get Ian Thorpe to dance in this vid?

  77. Gram Whitton

    Love this, keep it up

  78. gerald 413

    Imo i think the future in music is INDIE......I use to like old RoCk 🎸 o still like it but this INDIE music has Emerged big time.....get laiddd.lol

  82. Josh Turnbull

    Everyone should have a bamboo toothbrush

  83. Eddie Morales

    She's fr the cutest girl

  84. MarxOutThere

    I think that "...laid..." line is a bit clunky, but isn't it supposed to be? Who really knows, I'm just here to see if my house made the cut. Didn't. Locals want to redevelop that concrete drain, but I think it's in so many fashion & artie shots it's almost a local feature. Cool place to do skids with my bike.

  85. Jacob Archer

    Damn shes sexy...
