Looks like there's a lot work to be done in the lyric section.



Like the Summer of Sam back in ‘69
I be heavenly, deadily on the grind
Because to sing this nice has to be a crime
I be murderin’-a-murderin’ ‘em

Like the Summer of Love back in ‘69
You can say that I’m yours but my body is divine
I belong to everybody that I walk by
Like hi, hi…

I’m the master of my destiny
You haven’t seen the best of me
And if you want the rest of me
You have to pay a lovely fee
Hard, to stay far-far away from me
‘Cause I am the baddest girl in NYC
You can look but please, boy, touch
Boy, stay away from me

Baby, I’m a cinnamon girl
Keepin’ it fresh on the far East Side
Baby, I’m a tenement girl
Keepin’ it and cut your cherry pie
B-A-D-D-E-S-T, baddest girl in NYC
Baby, I’m a dangerous girl
You should stay away from me

I be murderin’-a-murderin’ ‘em (x2)

Like the Summer of Sam back in ‘69
I be tyin’ ‘em up and hang ‘em out to dry
‘Cause I’m hot like that, when I walk they die
I be murderin’-a-murderin’ ‘em

Like the Summer of Love back in ‘69
When I get on the microphone, my-my
They be lookin’ at each other like “ay ay ay”
Bye-bye

Please excuse m-my vivacity
Capacity for head games is incredible
It’s better if you stay away from me
I know it’s hard-hard, to stay far-far away from me
I am the baddest girl in NYC
You can look but please don’t touch but, boy, step away from me

Baby I’m a cinnamon girl
Keepin’ it fresh on the E-East Side
Baby, I’m a tenement girl
Keepin’ it and cut your cherry pie
B-A-D-D-E-S-T, baddest girl in NYC
Baby, I’m a dangerous girl
Baby, you should stay away from me

I be murderin’-a-murderin’ ‘em happily
Murderin’-a-murderin’ ‘em, ah-ah
Murderin’-a-murderin’ ‘em

I'm diggable, predicatable
No, everyone knows all my people
I’ll give you a fistful
You know you’ll be in a fight
Unmissable, invincible
Behavior is despicable
If you’re lookin’ for fun you can come out with me tonight
I am the baddest girl in NYC
I am the baddest, you’re likin’ what you see

Baby, I’m a cinnamon girl
Keepin’ it sweet on the far East Side
Baby, I’m a tenement girl
Keepin’ it and cut your cherry pie
B-A-D-D-E-S-T, baddest girl in NYC
Honey, I’m a dangerous girl
You should stay away from me

I agree. I think it's still really rough, but if it was finished it would be gr8.

I really want to hear this remastered. I think it's one of her best songs lyrically.

What? Really? I think you have the wrong thread. The "Unpopular Lana Opinions" thread is over here.

I like that it sounds kind of shitty--makes me imagine it in, like, a mixtape format. Can you imagine that? If Lana had a hip-hop mixtape? Oy.

And that right there is perhaps a big part of the reason why part of me sympathizes with any artist who has a problem with their unreleased music getting out.

"Baby, I’m a dangerous girl
You should stay away from me"
In the 2nd chorus the last line changes, from "you should stay away from me" to "baby, you should stay away from me"
"I’m diggable, predicatable
No, everyone knows I’m amicable"
I think its "indictable, predictable" - it would also make more sense as indictable means a high criminal offense.

I hear "No, everyone knows that I'm a pitbull" instead of amicable.. does anyone else hear that?

No, everyone knows I’m amicable

 

Misheard lyric: No, everyone knows I'm a cripple. 

 

I hear "No, everyone knows that I'm a pitbull" instead of amicable.. does anyone else hear that?

 

Yes!!! I was just listening and I hear that too.

I was just listening on my headphones and I heard as clear as day:

 

"No everyone knows all my people"

 

Would that make any sense here? (Maybe to contradict "predictable"? No, it's just that everyone knows her people?) Otherwise, "pitbull" seems like the best guess so far.

 

Also, I still think it's "I'm diggable." Because I don't hear a "t" in the middle of the word, and because "indictable" is pronounced, "in-DITE-able." (But hey, poetic license is still a possibility...)

I'm going to have to agree with both of these. I think "indictable" was suggest on Mermaid Motel because it implies crime but...it just sounds like "diggable".

 

Good revelation, as well. Makes more sense.

Oh my god...
It has to be pitbull. It flows seamlessly into the "you know you'll be in a fight," line. I LOVE IT

You can look but please, boy, touch

Isn't it  - 

"You can look but please don't touch." ?

It would make more sense, anyway.

I don't now, I've been playing the line over and over again, and I actually hear

"You can look, boy,
Please, boy,
Touch, boy,
Stay away from me.
"

It makes me think she's teasing the boys by making herself available and snatching herself out of their grasp last minute, it makes sense when you think about the "You can say I'm yours/But my body is divine" line.
