Knee Socks Lyrics


You got the lights on in the afternoon
And the nights are drawn out long
And you're kissing to cut through the gloom
With a cough drop coloured tongue
And you were sitting in the corner with the coats all piled high
And I thought you might be mine
In a small world on an exceptionally rainy Tuesday night
In the right place and time

When the zeros line up on the 24 hour clock
When you know who's calling even though the number is blocked
When you walked around your house wearing my sky blue Lacoste
And your Knee Socks

Well you cured my January blues
Yeah you made it all alright
I got a feeling I might have lit the very fuse
That you were trying not to light
You were a stranger in my phonebook I was acting like I knew
'Cause I had nothing to lose
When the winter's in full swing and your dreams just aren't coming true
Ain't it funny what you'll do

When the zeros line up on the 24 hour clock
When you know who's calling even though the number is blocked
When you walked around your house wearing my sky blue Lacoste
And your knee socks

The late afternoon
The ghost in your room that you always thought didn't approve of you knocking boots
Never stopped you letting me get hold of the sweet spot by the scruff of your
Knee socks

You and me could have been a team
Each had a half of a king and queen seat
Like the beginning of mean streets
You could be my baby

You and me could have been a team
Each had a half of a king and queen seat
Like the beginning of mean streets
You could be my baby

You and me could have been a team
Each had a half of a king and queen seat
Like the beginning of mean streets
You could be my baby

You and me could have been a team
Each had a half of a king and queen seat
Like the beginning of mean streets
You could be my baby

When the zeros line up on the 24 hour clock
When you know who's calling even though the number is blocked
When you walked around your house wearing my sky blue Lacoste
And your knee socks

When the zeros line up on the 24 hour clock
When you know who's calling even though the number is blocked
When you walked around your house wearing my sky blue Lacoste
And your knee socks

Knee socks
Knee socks

Knee Socks
  • Queens of the Stone Age frontman Josh Homme sings on both this tune and another AM track, "One For The Road." Homme produced half of Arctic Monkeys' 2009 album Humbug, and vocalist Alex Turner lent backing vocals to QOTSA's ...Like Clockwork track "If I Had A Tail." Turner told BBC Radio 1's Zane Lowe that Homme's appearance on the album was both casual and potentially unusual. "The Josh thing was very much a case of one of us returning a back scratch to the other," he said. "He came down and sort of got us out of a little rut. It's just fun, it's friends, extended family now - [they] came round, had a fun night. His contribution to our record is really exciting, it's probably my favorite. The 30 seconds that he's in there is just, I dunno, it's like something that I've never heard before."
  • Turner told NME about Homme's contribution to this song: "I think he sounds a bit like Bowie. It's my favourite bit of the record, that breakdown; that 30 seconds where it all goes weird," he said. "What's most interesting about it is how accidental it was - I'd sung on the new Queens record a few weeks previous, and we were kind of in a rut a little bit, in this dark rooms. So Josh came down, Nick (O'Malley, bass) made cocktails and we just hung out for the night. We got him to sing on 'One For The Road' and then we were playing him 'Knee Socks,' because we'd just been working on it. We were thinking about putting someone on that section, possibly to do the bit that the three of us were originally doing, which is this really fast R&B bit. But then he heard it and then he said, 'I've got this really great idea for a counter-melody background thing,' and he went and did that and it suddenly became this whole other thing that you never excited it to be. I think it kind of makes the tune. Suddenly, we were out of the rut and re-energised - Josh saved the day!"
