Genghis Khan by Miike Snow

I know there's no form
And no labels to put on
To this thing we keep
And dip into when we need
And I don't have the right
To ask where you go at night
But the waves hit my head
To think someone's in your bed

I get a little bit Genghis Khan
I don't want you to get it on
With nobody else but me
With nobody else but me
I get a little bit Genghis Khan
Don't want you to get it on
With nobody else but me
With nobody else but me

And the lights, they glow
Like I just lost the world war
And the scene slips away
To the evenness I fake
It's a cheat somewhere
Cause I don't really want you, girl
But you can't be free
Cause I'm selfish, I'm obscene

I get a little bit Genghis Khan
I don't want you to get it on
With nobody else but me
With nobody else but me
I get a little bit Genghis Khan
Don't want you to get it on
With nobody else but me
With nobody else but me

I wanna make up my mind
But I don't know myself
No I don't know myself
I wanna make up my mind
But I don't know myself
No I don't know myself
I wanna make up my mind
But I don't know myself
No I don't know myself

I get a little bit Genghis Khan
I don't want you to get it on
With nobody else but me
With nobody else but me
I get a little bit Genghis Khan
Don't want you to get it on
With nobody else but me
With nobody else but me

I FLIPPIN LOVE THIS VIDEO. NOT BECAUSE OF THE GAY JAMES BOND THEME BUT BECAUSE OF THE SPONTANIOUS DANCING. THAT IS THE WAY LIFE SHOULD BE. PEOPLE SHOULD JUST START DANCING. WHEN I WORKED AT THE JAIL THERE WAS A 1/4 MILE UNDERGROUND HALLWAY BETWEEN MINIMUM AND MED AND MAX. I ALWAYS WANTED TO LEARN TAP DANCING SO THAT I COULD TAPDANCE DOWN THE HALL ON MY WAY TO MEET WITH INMATES. BERV, NO NEED TO COMMENT IF YOU WILL BE LAME.

Wow. I keep hearing this song on the radio EVERYDAY. I had no idea it was about gold nosed gayness. I assumed the line "I get a little bit gangus kan" meant I want to screw you and your sister and everybody else's sister and all these sisters can have my babies. I didn't know it was about gay ballet dancers who are serously repressed and unhappy.

Also I would love to see you tap dancing down that hallway with all the cops watching. That image is now burned into my brain and it makes me laugh.

I would love to see you tap dance down that hallway as well - that makes me happy

That belongs in a movie

It's also true that there isn't enough spontaneous dancing in the world

or impromptu jam sessions

or the singing of one's thoughts

It was wee bit of an odd choice to pick Genghis Kahn for the jealous one, but it's a catchy song

and he spells his name with two i's, so that's gotta mean something
