What's the colour of v-neck's girl?
It's Red you bastard (It's Red you bastard)
I don't believe in God but believe in this shit - Not me

Some fool who's dumb dumb do - Not me

Some people get a freak outta me
Some people can't see what I can see
Some people wanna see what I see
Some people put an evil eye on me

Franz Ferdinand - Evil Eye
