"Every time I see you in the world you always step to my girl"

I am so very much in love with the new song "Step" from Vampire Weekend's new album, Modern Vampires of the City.

The lyrics are brilliant, and playful, and silly.....


Ancestors told me that their girl was better
she's richer than croesus, she's tougher than leather
I just ignored all the tales of a past life
stale conversation deserves but a bread knife


wisdom's a gift but you trade it for youth
age is an honor - it's still not the truth
we saw the stars when they hid from the world
you cursed the sun when it stepped to your girl.

maybe she's gone and I can't resurrect her
the truth is she doesn't need me to protect her
we know the true death - the true way of all flesh
everyone's dying but girl - you're not old yet


The gloves are off, the wisdom teeth are out
what you on about?
I feel it in my bones, I feel it in my bones
I'm stronger now, I'm ready for the house
such a modest mouse
I can't do it alone, I can't do it alone.

Every time I see you in the world
you always step to my girl.

Here's the video, have a little looksee:
