​Modern Girls And Old Fashioned Men

This song is by The Strokes, features Regina Spektor and appears on the Single Reptilia (2003) and on the Single Modern Girls & Old Fashioned Men (2004).

You were (You were)

Modern girls always have to go (right on time)
Old-fashioned men always want a mistress (you were right)
Modern girls always get their way (I was wrong)
Modern men dream of what they can't say (That's all right)
Right - right, right, right, right
I don't belong (I don't belong)

Why you gotta say it if you know it's something wrong? (Why you sittin' over there?)
Says that he'll apologize and it won't take too long
Well you don't wanna trust nobody else (Always thinking 'bout yourself)

(Time)
There's a few things that are gonna have to change
(On your side)
Everyone has the same opinion
(Won't you please?)
Your time is almost over
(Don't be mean)
We won't get the chance to do this over (That's all right)
Right - right, right, right, right
I don't belong (I don't belong)

I don't want the imprint of your key upon my nose (Why you sittin' over there?)
You don't have to tell no one 'cause no one wants to know
That you don't have no happiness at all (Always thinking 'bout yourself)

Shhh...

Oh yes we're falling down (Oh yes we're falling down)
Oh yes we're falling down (Oh yes we're falling down)
Oh yes we're falling down (Oh yes we're falling down)
Yes we're falling down (Oh yes we're falling down)

Oh yes we're falling down (Oh yes we're falling down)
Oh yes we're falling down (Oh yes we're falling down)
Oh yes we're falling down (Oh yes we're falling down)
So fucking help me up (So fucking help me up)

Always thinking 'bout yourself (You don't love me)
Always thinking 'bout yourself (I am an animal)
Always thinking 'bout yourself (I am not practical)

Was, I...? (Was, I...?)
