Lyrics for "Think about it, think, think about it"

Postby Andria » Sat Oct 29, 2005 6:38 am

I was bored and thumped these out. Keep in mind that what I typed out is what I heard. :D Doesn't necessarily mean that's what the Guys actually said...:wink:
I copped out at the end and just did *Both go to town with the wailing* No way am I actually going to get the wailing down accurately. LOL

“Think about it, think, think about it” by Flight of the Conchords
(HBO One Night Stand Performance)

Children on the streets using guns and knives
Taking drugs and each other’s lives
Killing each other using knives and forks
And calling each other names like dork

There’s people on the street getting diseases from monkeys
Yeah that’s what I said, their getting diseases from monkeys
Whys this happening, please, whose been touching these monkeys
Leave these poor sick monkeys alone
There sick, they’ve got problems enough as it is

A man is lying on the street, some punk has chopped off his head
And I’m the only one who stops to see if he’s dead, aaoohhh
Turns out he’s dead

That’s why I’m singing, Aaaaoooh what is wrong with the world today?
What’s wrong with the world today, *mumbles* never said nothings wrong with it
Uooo, what is wrong with the world today?
Think about it, think about it, think, think about it

Good cops get framed and put into a can
And all the money that we’re making is going to the maaan

What man, whose the man, when’s a man a man, why’s it so hard to be a man
Am I a man? Yes, technically, yes…

Oohh, come on, sont zootka they’re turning kids into slaves
They’re turning kids into slaves just to make cheaper sneakers
But what’s the real cost, ‘cause the sneakers don’t seem that much cheaper
Why are we still paying so much for sneakers when you got little kid slaves making them
What are your overheads?

Well, at the end of your life, you are lucky if you die
Sometimes I wonder why I would even try
Why try
I saw a man lying on the street half dead
He had knives and forks sticking out of his leg
He said, Ahh ahh ahh ahhhhhhhhwww
Can somebody get the knife and fork out of my leg, please
Ooh, could somebody please remove these cutleries from my knees
Yeah yeeeahhh
This is where we break it down
This is where we break it down
We’ll break it down
What are they doing, their breaking it down
What do they do, and now their keeping it funky
Just having a funky jam and then we’re going to drop the beat
And then we’ll bring it back *wails* Up
Wah wah wah waaah!

*Both go to town with the wailing*

Then we’ll take it low
Fading out, fading out
We’re talking about the issues, but we’re keeping it funky
We’re fading out, we’re just fading out
Why they getting quiet, they’re just fading out
*monkey noises*
Stop touching that monkey
I'll take your body and cover it with honey, then stick some money to the honey, now you're covered in money, honey. -FotC

'sont zootka" is my new catchphrase :purple:

I also think the line, "At the end of our lives, we are lucky if we die. Sometimes I wonder why we even try" should get due respect. That is just hilarious.


I still never get to use this smiley: :teeth:

I just realized how hilarious this is. Because he says "A can" instead of "THE can" it changes the meanin completely.

You learn somethin new every day. :D

Today I heard some words where Andria put "Sont Zootka." :eh:

I heard: "Sing this with me."

Someone, go have a listen and tell me what you think. :D

I always thought it was "sookie, sookie, sookie" as in the song where the guy goes "sookie, sookie, now" in that soul song which I can't for the life of me remember right now. Nor do I know the correct spelling for "sookie".

Well its sookie sookie sookie sookie sue from Sookie Sookie by Steppenwolf co-written by Steve Cropper of Booker-T and the MGs fame. Steve was one of the guitar players that was in the Blues Brothers movie. Do yourself a favor though and don't just remember him for being in this movie. 8)

gonna take a shot at the bbc version

Postby fawad-oh-so-prescient » Mon Apr 03, 2006 10:12 pm

the bbc mockumentary version of this song is what got me into the conchords single-handedly so i thought i'd give a go at trying to do that version some justice with a transcription.

now, the version i heard as part of the show two weeks ago (has it only been two weeks? wow.) is different than the version up in the Folk Out! section, but sadly I don't got that version no more. (It was funnier to me, as the voice-over bits that intruded were a bit less UK specific, the story of the forgotten guitar, etc.) But the lyrics and delivery of the song is what matters and the one here's got a bit more of that. So, I'll work with what I got.

It makes sense, Deirdre. I can't tell for sure but I think you are on to something. Good observation!

On which songs are the mumbling part, the "what man", the "think about it", the "cutleries" phrases based? They sound very familiar, but I can't put my finger on it.

Do you mean the song we are talking about here? It is also refered to as "Issues." But most of the time it's called "Think, Think About it," I think. :hrm:

I know, but the phrases he mumbles sound very familiar rhythmically; I assume they're taken from other songs. I would like to know which ones.
