Blue Orchid Lyrics - The White Stripes

Review The Song (7)



You got a reaction
You got a reaction didn't you?
You took a white orchid
You took a white orchid turned it blue

Something better than nothing
Something better than nothing, it's giving up
You need to do something
Try keep the truth from showing up

How dare you
How old are you now, anyway?
How dare you
How old are you now, anyway?

How dare you
How old are you now, anyway?


You're given a flower
But I guess that there's just no pleasing you
sponsored links
Your lips tastes sour
But you think that it's just me teasing you

You got a reaction
You got a reaction, didn't you?
You took a white orchid
You took a white orchid turned it blue

Get behind me
Get behind me now, anyway
Get behind me
Get behind me now, anyway

Get behind me
Get behind me now, anyway

You got a reaction
You got a reaction, didn't you?
You took a white orchid
You took a white orchid turned it blue

It's not entirely consistent with the song, but it's worth noting that the word "orchid" comes from the Greek word "orkhis", which means 'testicle'.

After that discovery, "you took a white orchid and turned it blue" made a whole lot more sense to me.



Hmm. | Reviewer: Jade | 11/25/09

'Jack White' (commented below me) isn't really the Jack White of White Stripes, he wouldn't comment on the lyrics of his own song... Makes me laugh when people are so lame and pretend to be the singers/songwriters though. :')
But, anyway. If Jack DID comment on this, he'd probably tell us what it was about. Plus he'd know how to spell 'her'. XD

Anyway, onto other matters. AMAZING song with such a catchy riff, definitely my favourite so far by them along with Icky Thump. ♥

Song is hot | Reviewer: Anonymous | 1/31/07

Elephant was their best album. Get beind me satan was ok. Doorbell and Blue orchid I play it all the time. White Stripes hands down is the best rock alternative group since the Doors.....

They just need more mainstream radio play

the stripes kick ass | Reviewer: Anonymous | 10/30/05

this is one of the best rock songs i've ever heard, the guitar and the distorsion are perfect the drums are simple but with a perfect timing and rythm and this solg played live is two times better in my opinion is the best song of the get behind me satan album that's characterized by it's lack of guitar but this song makes you forget that



They Just Keep Getting Better | Reviewer: William Quinones | 6/27/05

This song, in my opinion, is the best of the album. For a while, I had trouble deciding which I liked more; "Seven Nation Army" or "Blue Orchid." Orchid won out by just a hair. I love the guitar line, and the simple yet effective percussion that has worked so well for the Stripes for so long. They just ooze style in this song. Two thumbs up.
