Modern Girl Lyrics

[Intro: Jack Antonoff]
One, two, three, go
Woah, yeah

[Verse 1: Jack Antonoff]
Friday night, killer queens
Hop a train, on the scene
All the band is in the wild
Don't you dare touch the dial
We dressed up like a heart attack for you
We dressed up like a heart attack
I'm talking little jeans, tiny hat
Evan Smith, tiny sax
Drama kings, sing it loud
Drag that sh!t all over town
Play it like a heart attack for ya
We play it like a heart attack

[Chorus: Jack Antonoff]
So kiss me on the cheek
Make it a long goodbye
Oh, and all the modern girls
(Just like the modern girls)
Shaking their as* tonight
La-la-la-la-la-la-la, love on a wire
Oh, looking for a fight
Oh, and all the modern boys
(Just like the modern boys)
Are going out tonight, woah

[Post-Chorus: Jack Antonoff]
Oh, oh
Oh, oh

[Verse 2: Jack Antonoff]
Change my meds, change the flight
Bodies on, bodies wild
Bodycam, only flams
Bleachers band, only flams
We play it like a heart attack for ya
We play it like a heart attack
I guess I'm New Jersey's finest New Yorker
Unreliable reporter
Pop music hoarder
Some guy playing quarters
But I'm wearing a heart attack, baby
A Mikey Freedom heart attack

[Chorus: Jack Antonoff]
So kiss me on the cheek
Make it a long goodbye
Oh, and all the modern girls
(Just like the modern girls)
Shaking their as* tonight
La-la-la-la-la-la-la, love on a wire
Oh, looking for a fight
Oh, and all the modern boys
(Just like the modern boys)
Are going out tonight, woah

[Interlude: Jack Antonoff]
Evan the kid, let's go

[Bridge: Jack Antonoff]
Oh, oh
Oh, oh
Oh, oh

[Chorus: Jack Antonoff]
So kiss me on the cheek
La-la-la-la, make it a long goodbye
Oh, and all the modern girls
(Just like the modern girls)
Shaking their as* tonight
La-la-la-la-la-la-la, love on a wire
Oh, looking for a fight
Oh, and all the modern boys
(Just like the modern boys)
Are going out tonight

[Outro: Jack Antonoff]
Just like the modern girls, just for the modern girls
Just like the modern girls
Just like the modern boys, just for the modern boys
Just like the modern boys
