nite nite lyrics – kano

[mike skinner]
seriously man,
like, you know when you got a good girl,
or you know when she means something to you, & you’ve
got like, a name.

[leo the lion]
here we go again
here we go

[mike skinner]
like i had a name for this girl, i used to call her
“ladybird”,
cos she always played red, in connect four.

[leo the lion (chorus)]
link em & leave then em high,
i’ve been tellin all my man’s for time,
link em and then leave em high,
they never take my advice,
but now i realize, i realize why,
they have not been listening all this time,
cos since i linked you, last night,
i wont be taking my advice

[kano]
look,
i call her “nite nite”
because she sleeps from the day right to the bright
light,
an i like her too much to say bye bye,
but we getting on fine right,
i don’t wanna spoil it,
i don’t why i can’t commit to girls,
and i tell white lies, i’ll find out the hard way,
cos she got my favourite smile, her favourite style,
the first hotel, my favourite time,
and maybe later we could have a baby, maybe a baby
boy, my
favourite child,
“i’m way too tired”, my favourite lie,
at first i wasn’t so sure of her favourite rhyme
the windows are steaming up like it’s naked time,
wait, we’re way too bait,
i bought her favourite shoes, or they better be,
and she’s even my favourite size,
and she knows i hate holding hands, and i’m hooded up
when it’s
bait inside,
so i guess she’s my favorite, right?

[leo the lion]
right,
cos nothing comes close to you.

[kano]
so numbers? no boys are taking yours,
and no girls are taking mine,
groupies? f*** that, i’m taking time,
we speak from like 8 till late at night,
when we gets on top, drop my favourite line:

[leo the lion]
girl, i ain’t going nowhere.

[kano (spoken)]
i plain ain’t going nowhere,
but, i like you, and it might take some time,
but really i’m like.

[leo the lion & kano]
here we go again,

[leo the lion (chorus)]

[kano]
i call her sometimes, and i wake her up at some dumb
times,
touch my phone, and her number my thumb finds,
cos she’s ideal, like a nice meal, and a night in,
with a nice feel,
maybe some wine,
maybe sometime we could hold hands in the park, in the
sunshine,
sometimes,
be patient with me if i got 3 raves in a week,
or in a studio, away for a week,
one we could book a vacation and leave,
but please: “no drama”, i don’t need beef like shane,
forbe, fabian an dean,
i’m just focused on making the peas, breaking the
team, chasing a dream,
i ain’t on the street, maybe sometimes,
but you can’t say i don’t make enough time,
we speak everyday and meet everyweek,
so i dunno. maybe it’s me.
you? you got it planned out,
i don’t make plans,
you know me, i wait and i see,
but if we were together, or even now,
if we weren’t “sort-of”, but were together,
would you be faithfull to me?
treat me sanie and make me a tea?
come link me, lay and wake up from sleep, and look hot
like 80 degrees?

[leo the lion]
and you know i never say that sort of thing

[kano (spoken)]
see? that’s an angel to me
i wouldn’t have said that before, you get me?

[leo the lion (chorus)]

[leo the lion]
no, no, no, no, no, no
oh my, my, ow,
baby we could do this again sometime,
i even have a special name for you,
it’s “long baby”, cos you always on my mind, yeah.
i’ll tell you straight, so straight, yeah,
i won’t tell my mates,
no, no, i know, no, i know,
yeah i like you,
here we go,
here we go again,
here we,
here we go again.
