Jesse Rutherford – Too Cool For You To Know lyrics
Hey, hey, everybody come on! Come on!
One, two, three, hey, four

[Verse 1]
Look at me, I'm a super rad hipster
Sometimes I share pants with my sister
My brand new Toms shoes give me blisters
Ends of my moustache, looking like Christa
Um, yeah, I am artsy
Smoke cigarettes and use the word "gnarly"
Me and my friends always have team parties
In my band house they have 8 track recordings
Sitting on my MacBook, looking at the Bonnaroo line-up
Wished that I lived when the telephones wind-up
Call up my friends and they drink all the wine up
We all sing harmonies, catch me on the high notes
Give me a guitar and a glockenspiel
And a blanket in the middle of a soccer field
Take polaroid pictures of each other
Scan em' then put them up right away on my Tumblr (Hey!)
Do you like my denim jacket?
I found it at a thrift shop racked in the back
It's so 1960s, I'm such a hippy
Me and my friends strictly ride fixies (No way!)
Road trip up to San Fran this week
Travel in the van with the band all 15
Have you heard the new Radiohead?
It's okay but I like Kid A and The Bends

[Verse 2]
Anyway, when I ride to the city for a coffee
We can buy new Ray Bans at the swap meet
I want a beanie like Steve Zissou
And a moustache and the beard of zues
I wanna do American apparel photoshoots
And get another pair of these sick bowling shoes
And wear 'em tight next week and maybe go fishing
Just be sure to bring paps blue ribbon
And I don't believe in God, I don't have a good reason
I only eat chicken, yeah, I'm gonna be vegan, yeah, I swear
I haven't washed my hair in at least two weeks
But I have a pocket comb to slick back that grease
My shorts are too short and I don't wear sleeves
And I wear v-necks, check out my chest price
I like a bunch of bands you'd have never heard
They're from overseas and I still learned all the words
Watch the video on Vimeo they have plenty
HD quality, only 720
I like fedoras and candles and incense and mandem
Hand me down, flea markets, tee-shirts and flannels
American spirits and serious lyrics
I'm not a hipster it's just my appearance (Yep, yeah)

No, no, trust me, you - I would show you, you haven't heard of them
Haha, no, no, no, seriously
Hey, could I get some more coffee? Thankyou
Um, no, no, no, no, honestly - uh - uh, this is a band from like - uh over there, so pretty cool though
I mean they have - uh really cool stage performance with like 15 to 25 hundred of them on stage at a time - um, that's really cool
Wait - hip-hop? Do I like hip-hop? No, I mean unless you're talking about like 2Pac, Thug Life or like - I mean I don't like any of that new shit
Except for Odd Future, I mean they're cool, but I mean... Haha...
Nah, I don't really like hip-hop that much I mean it depends, have you...
Nah, all these stupid fucking kids that are trying to do it around here and stuff, you know what I mean, like...
Yeah, I know...
Nah, I know it's - it's so stupid, I mean they're just - they're just - like, who're they trying to be? You know what I mean, I feel like, like they don't even know themselves, you know what I mean? I just feel like I'm one with me and I just, you know...
No, no, I agree with you, like, totally...

Hahahahahahaha, [?]
