Lana Del Rey I Sing the Body Electric Lyrics

Last updated: 07/24/2012 11:00:00 AM

Elvis is my daddy, Marilyn’s my mother,
Jesus is my bestest friend.
I don’t need nobody, ‘cause we got each other,
Or at least I pretend.
We get down every Friday night,
Dancin’ and grindin’ in the pale moonlight.
When the heartbreak, feelin’ alright,
She prays to rosaries for my broken mind.
I sing the body electric,
I sing the body electric, baby.
I sing the body electric,
Sing the body electric,
Sing the body electric.
I’m on fire, baby, I’m on fire.


Whitman is my daddy, Monaco’s my mother,
Diamonds are my bestest friend.
Heaven is my baby, suicide’s her father,
Opulence is the end.
We get down every friday night,
Dancin’ and grindin’ in the pale moonlight.
When the heartbreak, feelin’ alright,
She prays to rosaries for my broken mind.
I sing the body electric,
I sing the body electric, baby.
I sing the body electric,
Sing the body electric,
Sing the body electric.
I’m on fire, baby, I’m on fire.
My clothes still smell like you,
All the photographs say, that we’re still young.
I pretend I’m not hurt, I walk about the world like I’m havin’ fun.
And we get crazy every Friday night, I drop it like it’s hot in the pale moonlight.
When the heartbreak, feelin’ alright,
She’s swayin’ softly, to her hearts delight.
I sing the body electric,
I sing the body electric, baby.
I sing the body electric,
Sing the body electric,
Sing the body electric.
I’m on fire, sugar, I’m on fire.
I sing the body electric, baby.
I sing the body electric, baby.
I sing the body electric, baby.

In an interview with RTVE on June 15, 2012, Del Rey announced she has been working on a new album due in November, and that five tracks have already been written, two of them being "Will You Still Love Me When I'm No Longer Young and Beautiful" and "In the Land of Gods and Monsters" and the other track titled "I Sing the Body Electric," which was performed and announced as one of her songs at the BBC Radio1's Hackney Weekend. In an interview with Tim Blackwell for Nova FM in Melbourne, Australia, Del Rey added that her upcoming November release would not be a new album, but more like an EP, which she described as the Paradise Edition of Born to Die. Del Rey stated that the new release would have around 7 new songs.
On July 17, 2012, it was confirmed by H&M that Del Rey would be modeling for their 2012 Autumn Campaign.
