19-2000 Lyrics - Gorillaz



Review The Song (8)


The world is spinning too fast
I'm buying lead Nike shoes
To keep myself tethered
To the days I try to lose

My mama said to slow down
You should make your shoes
Stop dancing to the music
Of Gorillaz in a happy mood

Keep a mild groove on

Ba ba ba
Day dee bop

There you go!
Get the cool!
Get the cool shoeshine!
Get the cool!
Get the cool shoeshine!
Get the cool!
Get the cool shoeshine!
Get the cool!
Get the cool shoeshine!

There's a monkey in the jungle
Watching a vapour trail
Caught up in the conflict
Between his brain and his tail

And if time's elimination
Then we got nothing to lose
Please repeat the message
It's the music that we choose

Keep a mild groove on

Ba ba ba
Day dee bop

OK bring it down yeah we gonna break out
Get the cool!
Get the cool shoeshine!
Get the cool!
Get the cool shoeshine!
Get the cool!
Get the cool shoeshine!
Get the cool!
Get the cool shoeshine!

Ah Ah Ah Ah

Day doo de bop

You. Are. A. Fucking. Retard. Why do you talk about shit that you obviously have no idea about. I mean come on, either make sure your facts are correct or just shut the fuck up. It's people like you that give rise to the "Stupid American" stereotype

@ chubbypolo: you are full of crap dude, i have wasted 10min of my precious life to instal a program to play this song backwards and guess what? THE VOICES ARE ONLY IN YOUR HEAD! great song, but you better play it forward ;)



WHOO! | Reviewer: MUSiC | 10/9/09

i love this song. i listen to it every day before school, i even do a little pwning dance to it. except 'get the cool shoeshine' is 'ketaku shu-shai' or something like that. it's japanese that's all i know, oh well



transition | Reviewer: AFX | 2/7/09

I think the lyrics and title imply that it's about the transition from 1999 to 2000, and was probably written around that time. The fact he's buying lead nike shoes is because at the time going from the year 1999 to 2000 was a big leap, and people were moving very fast, taking care of things, the world was at a hectic time. I think that he wants to stay at the same pace, and on track to carry on doing what hes doing and not get caught up in the crazyness of the transition from year to year, decade to decade, century to century and millennium to millennium



i dunno | Reviewer: milano | 1/1/08

when i think of what this song could mean i keep finding the meaning to be sinister
kind of a "we're part of the machiene, and were foucusing on the music here on" or that were going down with music, distracted and joyous



creepy | Reviewer: chubbypolo | 1/1/08

great song,nice happy n cheerful,thts wen u play it forwards,play backwards near the bit where it says "plz repeat the message its the music tht we choose,(or some where near there) it will talk about the number 7 n satan(also murdoc is an on/off santanist)n in the vid near tht bit also they pass a turning in to a church of savlation!!creepy?i think so.
