Song Lyric Thursday – July 17 2008

I’d heard The Dandy Warhols “Bohemian Like You” on the radio a couple of times and liked it.  But I had heard neither the song title nor the artist.

Then we were watching Igby Goes Down one night and the song was used in a party scene.  Afterward I scanned the credits looking for the song title and artist so that I could download buy the song.

The funniest thing about this song that I remember was the time I was watching TV (when I still watched TV) and a GM commercial came on.  There was some fanciful imagery with all of GM’s top models basically flying around the air and when I heard the opening bars of “Bohemian Like You” I just had to laugh.  The commercial used the first line of the lyrics: “You’ve got a great car…”  I wondered to myself how many others watching that commercial knew that the next line was “Yeah, what’s wrong with it today?”  The commercial, of course, skipped to a modification of the “I like you” refrain, morphing it to “I like it”.  How I wish I’d had my VCR queued up to capture that commercial because I never saw it again.  And I wondered how many ad-men’s heads rolled over that one.

Anyway, without further ado here are the lyrics to The Dandy Warhols’ “Bohemian Like You”.  A provocative video of the song, complete with karaoke lyrics and some full frontal nudity (both male and female) follows at the bottom of the post.

Bohemian Like You

by The Dandy Warhols

You’ve got a great car,
Yeah, what’s wrong with it today?
I used to have one too,
Maybe I’ll come and have a look.
I really love your hairdo,Yeah,
I’m glad you like mine too,
See what lookin’ pretty cool will get ya.

So what do you do?
Oh yeah I wait tables too.
No I haven’t heard your band,
Cause you guys are pretty new.
But if you dig on Vegan food,
Well come over to my work,
I’ll have them cook you something that you’ll really love,

Cause I like you,
Yeah, I like you,
And I’m feeling so Bohemian like you,
Yeah, I like you,
Yeah, I like you,
And I feel wahoo, wooo

Wohoo hoo hoo X4

Wait,
Who’s that guy,
Just hanging at your pad.
He’s looking kinda BUMMED,
Yeah, you broke up that’s too bad.
I guess its fair if he always pays the rent,
and he doesn’t get bent about sleeping on the couch when I’m there,

Cause I like you,
Yeah I like you,
And I’m feeling so Bohemian like you.
Yeah I like you,
Yeah I like you,
And I feel wahoo, woooo
Wohoo hoo hoo X3

I’m getting wise,
and i’m feeling so Bohemian like you,
It’s you that I want so please,
just a casual, casual easy thing.
Is it? It is for me.
And I like you,
Yeah I like you,
And I like you, I like you, I like you, I like you, I like you, I like you
I like you.
And I feel wahoo, woooo
Wohoo hoo hoo X4
