Music Video: Kate Nash - We Get On

Average: 3.3 (9 votes)

This song could be particularly useful for you if you are studying in (or wish to go to London), as the singer has quite a strong London accent. Her name is Kate Nash and she is famous for writing songs that don’t romanticise love and dating.

Read through the lyrics of this song first and then listen and try to complete the gaps with the missing words.

Note: I have not used the whole song for this lesson, but why don’t you listen to the rest of the song and tell us what the end result is for the singer!

We Get On Lyrics

Simply knowing you exist
Ain't good enough for me
But asking for your _1_ number
Seems highly inappropriate

Seeing as I can't
Even say hi
When you walk by

And that time you shook my _2_
It felt so nice
I swear I never felt
This way about any other guy
And I don't usually _3_ people's eyes but

I conducted a plan
To bump into you most _4_
But I was walking along
And I bumped into you much more heavily
Than I'd originally planned
It was well _5_ and
I think you thought that I was a bit of a t**t

I just think that we get on
I wish I could tell you face to face
Instead of _6_ this stupid song
But yeah I just think that we might get on

So I went to that party and everyone
They were kind of arty
And I was wearing this dress
Because I wanted to _7_
But I wasn't sure if I looked my best
'Cause I was so _8_
But I carried on regardless

Strutting through each room
Trying to find you
And when I saw you
Kissing that girl
My heart it _9_
And my eyes, they watered
And when I tried to speak I stuttered
