Lorde – Tennis Court (Audio)


Don’t you think that it’s boring how people talk? Making smart with their words again, well I’m bored Because I’m doing this for the thrill of it Killin’ it Never not chasing a million things I want And I am only as young as the minute is Full of it Getting pumped up from the little bright things I bought But I know they’ll never own me (Yeah!) Baby be the class clown I’ll be the beauty queen in tears It’s a new art form Showing people how little we care (Yeah!) We’re so happy Even when we’re smilin’ out of fear Let’s go down to the tennis court And talk it up like yeah (Yeah!) Pretty soon I’ll be getting on my first plane I’ll see the veins of my city Like they do in space But my head’s filling up fast With the wicked games Up in flames How can I f**k with the fun again When I’m known And my boys trip me up With their heads again Loving them Everything’s cool When we’re all in line for the throne But I know it’s not forever (Yeah!) Baby be the class clown I’ll be the beauty queen in tears It’s a new art form Showing people how little we care (Yeah!) We’re so happy Even when we’re smilin’ out of fear Let’s go down to the tennis court And talk it up like yeah (Yeah!) It looked alright in the pictures (Yeah!) Getting caught’s half of the trip though, isn’t it? I fall apart with all my heart (Yeah!) And you could watch from your window (Yeah!) And you could watch from your window Baby be the class clown I’ll be the beauty queen in tears It’s a new art form Showing people how little we care (Yeah!) We’re so happy Even when we’re smilin’ out of fear Let’s go down to the tennis court And talk it up like yeah (Yeah!) And talk it up like yeah (Yeah!) And talk it up like yeah (Yeah!) Let’s go down to the tennis court And talk it up like yeah (Yeah!) (Yeah!) And talk it up like yeah (Yeah!) And talk it up like yeah (Yeah!) Let’s go down to the tennis court And talk it up like yeah (Yeah!)

    Don't you think that it's boring how people talk
    Making smart with their words again, well I'm bored
    Because I'm doing this for the thrill of it, killin' it
    Never not chasing a million things I want
    And I am only as young as the minute is full of it
    Getting pumped up on the little bright things I bought
    But I know they'll never own me
    (Yeah)

    Baby be the class clown
    I'll be the beauty queen in tears
    It's a new art form showing people how little we care (yeah)
    We're so happy, even when we're smilin' out of fear
    Let's go down to the tennis court, and talk it up like yeah (yeah)

    Pretty soon I'll be getting on my first plane
    I'll see the veins of my city like they do in space
    But my head's filling up fast with the wicked games, up in flames
    How can I f**k with the fun again, when I'm known
    And my boys trip me up with their heads again, loving them
    Everything's cool when we're all in line for the throne
    But I know it's not forever
    (Yeah)

    Baby be the class clown
    I'll be the beauty queen in tears
    It's a new art form showing people how little we care (yeah)
    We're so happy, even when we're smilin' out of fear
    Let's go down to the tennis court, and talk it up like yeah (yeah)

    It looked alright in the pictures (yeah)

    Getting caught's half of the trip though, isn't it?
    I fall apart with all my heart (yeah)
    And you could watch from your window (yeah)
    [Laughs]
    And you can watch from your window

    Baby be the class clown
    I'll be the beauty queen in tears
    It's a new art form showing people how little we care (yeah)
    We're so happy, even when we're smilin' out of fear
    Let's go down to the tennis court, and talk it up like yeah (yeah)

    And talk it up like yeah (yeah)
    And talk it up like yeah (yeah)
    Let's go down to the tennis court, and talk it up like yeah (yeah)
    And talk it up like yeah (yeah)
    And talk it up like yeah (yeah)
    Let's go down to the tennis court, and talk it up like yeah
    (Yeah)
