Vampire Weekend – Hudson lyrics

Hudson died in Hudson bay,
The water took his victim's name,
Now rivers rise told riverside,
To change their names again.

(Choral humming)

A stranger walked in through the door,
Said "All apartments are pre-war",
We laughed and I asked him for his name,
He stayed until the end.

We watched the Germans play the Greeks,
He marked the ninety-nine-year lease,
Our father's which I declined,
To try and comprehend.

(Choral humming)

Over and over again are these never-ending visions,
Over and over again like a prize that's changed in hands,
The time has come,
The clock is such a drag,
All you who change your stripes,
Can wrap me in the flag.

The legendary wooden gate,
First established real-estate,
It's lost a time like other crimes,
The one this pleasant land.

Over and over again are these never-ending visions,
Over and over again like a prize that's changed in hands,
The time has come,
The clock is such a drag,
All you who change your stripes,
Can wrap me in the flag.

(Choral humming)

Hudson died in Hudson bay,
But I was born on sodden place,
The rising tide helped me decide,
To change my name again.

Some men tend to linger on,
And some make haste from Babylon,
Some were on the ruined home,
Rejoicing... To the end.

Over and over again are these never-ending visions,
Over and over again like a prize that's changed in hands,
The time has come,
The clock is such a drag,
All you who change your stripes,
Can wrap me in the flag.

The lines are drawn,
The map is such a drag,
All you who change your stripes,
Can wrap me in the flag.

(Choral humming)
