#4 Ruby

#4 Ruby – Kaiser Chiefs

So, the first track from the Kaiser Chiefs (actually their first single), one of the 2 new best guitar bands of the noughties. A song which it would seem is eminently transliterable as it is chanted by the fans of at least 7 British soccer teams, with name changes ranging from Rooney and Rudi (ManU+Sutton) to Shuna and Bouiee(Fulham+Celtic). I just think it’s a really good thrash.

Lyrics
Let it never be said
The Romance is dead
‘Cause there’s so little else
Occupying my head

[Verse 2:]
There is nothing I need
except the function to breathe
But I’m not really fussed
Doesn’t matter to me

[Chorus:]
Ruby, Ruby, Ruby, Ruby
Do you, do you, do you, do you
Know what you’re doing, doing, to me
Ruby, Ruby, Ruby, Ruby

[Verse 3:]
Due to lack of interest
Tomorrow is canceled
Let the clocks be reset
And the pendulums held

[Verse 4:]
‘Cause there’s nothing at all
Except the space in-between
Finding out what you’re called
And repeating your name

[Chorus]

[Middle 8:]
Could it be, could it be
That you’re joking with me?
And you don’t really see you and me [x2]

[Chorus:]
Ruby, Ruby, Ruby, Ruby
Do you, do you, do you, do you
Know what you’re doing, doing, to me
Ruby, Ruby, Ruby, Ruby
Do you, do you, do you, do you
Know what you’re doing, doing, to me

Songwriters: Baines, Nicholas Matthew; Wilson, Charles Richard; Hodgson, Nicholas James D; White, Andrew Robert; Rix, James Simon;
