Vampire Weekend A-Punk Lyrics

Last updated: 12/07/2010 10:00:00 AM

Johanna drove slowly into the city
The Hudson River all filled with snow
She spied the ring on His Honor's finger

A thousand years in one piece of silver
She took it from his lilywhite hand
Showed no fear - she'd seen the thing
In the Young Men's Wing at Sloan-Kettering


Look outside at the raincoats coming, say OH

His Honor drove southward seeking exotica
Down to the Pueblo huts of New Mexico
Cut his teeth on turquoise harmonicas

I saw Johanna down in the subway
She took an apartment in Washington Heights
Half of the ring lies here with me
But the other half's at the bottom of the sea

THOSE are the lyrics?! | Reviewer: Sage | 12/6/10

I seriously have NEVER known the lyrics in whole. I had no idea what the song was about but loved it just the same. After reading the lyrics, I STILL have no idea what this song is about and will continue to blast it due to the giddy mood it puts me in and the smile that instantly plasters itself to my face. =)
