A Song To Make You Smile : White Sky by Vampire Weekend Lyrics

Vampire Weekend Vogue photo by Steven Meisel

I have to play this at least once a day. The song White Sky by Vampire Weekend satisfies a sweet-tooth with an almost sickly saccharin  pop 🙂 … for those that dare…

.. bubblegum, yes, but make you smile, oh yeah. My other half says I’m in La-La-Land, but I say,

“I’m stayin’ here, join me!”

That high pitched “ah-ooo-oooo-whoo-ahyouuuuu”. in the middle kills me…LOL!


did you smile? 😀

White Sky Lyrics

An ancient business
A modern piece of glass work
Down on the corner that you walk each day in passing
The elderly sales clerk won’t eye us with suspicion
The whole, immortal corporation’s given its permission

A little stairway
A little bit of carpet
A pair of mirrors that
Are facing one another
Out in both directions
A thousand little Julias
That come together
In the middle of Manhattan

You waited since lunch
It all comes at once


Around the corner
The house that modern art built
I ask for modern art
To keep it out the closets
The people who might own it
The sins of pride and envy
And on the second floor
The Richard Serra Skate Park

You waited since lunch
It all comes at once


Sit on the park wall
Ask all the right questions
Why are the horses racing taxis in the winter?
Look up at the buildings imagine who might live there
Imagining your worfords in a ball upon the sink there

You waited since lunch
It all comes at once



(Thanks for the lyrics!)
