Wet Leg – “Chaise Longue”

Wet Leg – “Chaise Longue”

Wet Leg is a band from Isle of Wight comprised of Rhian Teasdale and Hester Chambers, and together they make up one of the best and most original bands I’ve heard in years.  “Chaise Longue” reminds me of Delta 5’s “Mind Your Own Business” with its tongue-in-cheek lyrics and garage/punk instrumentation.  The lyrics are tremendously fun – “I went to school and I got a degree/All my friends call it ‘the big D'” – absolutely perfect.  This song is going round and round in my brain.  They just got signed to Domino, and I cannot wait to hear what comes next from this duo.  Take the ride with me.

Mommy, daddy, look at me
I went to school and I got a degree
All my friends call it “the big D”
I went to school and I got the big D
I got the big D
I got the big D
I got the big D
I went to school and I got the big D
Is your muffin buttered?
Would you like us to assign someone to butter your muffin?
Excuse me (what?)
Excuse me (what?)
Hey you, over there
On the chaise longue in your underwear
What are you doing sitting down?
You should be horizontal now
On the chaise longue, on the chaise longue, on the chaise longue
All day long, on the chaise longue
On the chaise longue, on the chaise longue, on the chaise longue
All day long, on the chaise longue
Is your mother worried?
Would you like us to assign someone to worry your mother?
Excuse me (what?)
Excuse me (what?)
Hey you, in the front row
Are you coming backstage after the show?
Because I’ve got a chaise longue in my dressing room
And a pack of warm beer that we can consume
On the chaise longue, on the chaise longue, on the chaise longue
All day long, on the chaise longue
On the chaise longue, on the chaise longue, on the chaise longue
All day long, on the chaise longue
On the chaise longue, on the chaise longue, on the chaise longue
All day long, on the chaise longue
On the chaise longue, on the chaise longue, on the chaise longue
All day long, on the chaise longue
On the chaise longue, on the chaise longue, on the chaise longue
All day long, on the chaise longue
On the chaise longue, on the chaise longue, on the chaise longue
All day long, on the chaise longue
On the chaise longue, on the chaise longue, on the chaise longue
All day long, on the chaise longue
On the chaise longue, on the chaise longue, on the chaise longue
All day long, on the chaise longue
All day long, all day long, on the chaise longue
All day long, all day long, on the chaise longue
All day long, all day long, on the chaise longue
On the chaise longue, all day long, on the chaise longue
