Corinne Bailey Rae - Put Your Records On Lyrics

Three little birds, sat on my window
And they told me I don't need to _1_
Summer came like cinnamon
So _2_
Little girls double-dutch on the concrete.

Maybe sometimes, we've got it _3_, but it's alright
The more things seem to change, the more they stay the same
Oh, don't you _4_

Girl, put your records on, tell me your favourite song
You go ahead, let your hair down
Sapphire and faded jeans, I hope you get your dreams,
Just go ahead, let your hair down.

You're gonna find yourself somewhere, somehow.

Blue as the sky, _5_ and lonely,
Sipping tea in the bar by the roadside,
(just relax, just relax)
Don't you let those other boys _6_ you,
Got to love that afro hair do.

Maybe sometimes, we feel _7_, but it's alright
The more you stay the same, the more they seem to change.
Don't you think it's strange?

Girl, put your records on, tell me your favourite song
You go ahead, let your hair down
Sapphire and faded jeans, I hope you get your dreams,
Just go ahead, let your hair down.

You're gonna find yourself somewhere, somehow.

'Twas more than I could take, pity for pity's sake
Some nights kept me awake, I thought that I was _8_
When you gonna realise, that you don't even have to try any longer?
Do what you want to.

Girl, put your records on, tell me your favourite song
You go ahead, let your hair down
Sapphire and faded jeans, I hope you get your dreams,
Just go ahead, let your hair down.
