Los Campesinos!: Songs About your Girlfriend

 

Songs About Your Girlfriend es el tercer sencillo que Los Campesinos! han extraído de su último álbum Hello Sadness; un excelente tema que trata sobre amores frustrados que nunca volverán pero que no es posible olvidar (mucho menos si además se trata de la novia de un amigo). Y es que se ve que la mejor manera que han encontrado Los Campesinos! para tratar de olvidar sus penas es intentar pasar un buen rato en un local de strippers; pero por lo visto la solución no resulta muy efectiva. A continuación podéis ver el videoclip que acompaña este tema, dirigido por David Spearing:

 

 

Si lo comparamos con los vídeos de los dos anteriores sencillos lo primero que se nota (más allá de las chicas espectaculares ligeritas de ropa) es que este videoclip es mucho menos bizarro y provocador que los anteriores; lo cual es casi de agradecer porque en algunos momentos los vídeos de Los Campesinos! llegan a ser un tanto desagradables. Si os ha gustado este tema a continuación tras el salto podéis encontrar su letra.

 

 

You did not like us cause your girlfriend likely does
And all your friends agree on her soft spot for me
I’ll have my hard hands over her soft spots soon, you will see

 

And if you want a list of all her favourite bits
The next time i am free, quite comprehensively
I will scrawl them all down for you as an apology

 

Tell her the times we shared that broke have been repaired
Cinders of our old jokes have once again been stoked
But with a different girl, funnier now they’ve been rehearsed

 

Oh i hung on your every word
Til we were interrupted by the birds
Singing ‘oh your mask is slipping, oh your mask is slipping’

 

Songs i’ve written about your girlfriend
Are just psalms of spite since it came to an end

 

Cos i’ve never made her smile like that
And she never made me smile right back
Although i always made her purr like a cat
She said i never made her smile like that

 

She stubbed her home club’s crest on me with cigarettes
A swift that matched the bird upon her football shirt
She would lift the hem, she would wear that thing like a skirt

 

The last time i was there she let me wear her clothes
She painted my lips red so that we both ensured
I kissed her every inch, my god the girl looked like she’d burned

 

All night i hung on your every word
Til we were interrupted by the birds
Singing ‘oh your mask is slipping, oh your mask is slipping’

 

Songs i’ve written about your girlfriend
Are just psalms of spite since it came to an end

 

Songs i’ve written about your girlfriend
Are just killing time while my heart is on the mend

 

Cos i’ve never made her smile like that
And she never made me smile right back
Although i always made her purr like a cat
She said i never made her smile like that
