The Kooks - You Can’t Take Yourself lyrics

[Verse 1]
If I listened to what people say
I wouldn't be here
And if I knew all the things that I'd done
I wouldn't've been having fun
So sit me up against the wall
Let me feel strong
There's no such thing as too much fun
Let's get together

[Chorus]
Because you
You can't take yourself so seriously, you
But you can't take yourself so seriously, you

[Verse 2]
I come to you with open arms
Everybody's perfect
Everything is where it should be
I hope that you're with me
Now you've been feeling so much higher
Since we last saw you
Do you remember the times that we shared together?

[Chorus]
Because you
You can't take yourself so seriously, you
But you can't take yourself so seriously, you
You can't take yourself so seriously, you
But you can't take yourself so seriously, you

[Instrumental bridge]

[Chorus / Outro]
You
But you can't take yourself so seriously, you
You can't take yourself so seriously, you
But you can't take yourself so seriously, you
You can't take yourself so seriously, you
