The Lyrics

Part of my "Do What You Wanna Do" self-challenge. Can you guess which particular article of clothing this guy isn't a fan of? If you guessed "ties", CONGRATULATIONS! You can read!
Say, say no, say no, say, say no, say no
Say, say no, say no, say, say no, say no
Say, say no, say no, say, say no, say no
Say, say no, say no, say, say no, say no

Ties, I think that they blow, no ly-y-y-yin'
Such a wa-aste of drawer space and they always cho-oke
No matter how loose it's worn 'round
My neck, can't access my lu-u-u-u-ungs
Could be in my head, but still
It means that I think they su-u-u-u-uck

So I say no to ties (say no, say no)
When I get one as a gift, I feel appalled (say, say no, say no, say, say no, say no, say, say no, say no)
Should know I'm loathin' tie-ie-ies (say, say no, say no)
Only clothin' article that I abho-o-or (say, say no, say no, say, say no, say no, say, say no, say no)
Some people say I look incompetent without it (ah-ah-ah)
You seen the way I tie? Quite honestly, I doubt i-i-i-it (ah-ah-ah)

Never tau-aught how to knot the damn thing, can't tie it
In a bo-ow, have to a-a-ask, it makes me look dumb
Always awkward when I ask 'round
"Could you please tie my tie u-u-u-u-up?"
The "no snark" counter i-is nil
No surprise I think they su-u-u-u-uck

I'm sayin' no to ties (say no, say no)
And the colour choices drive me up the wall (say, say no, say no, say, say no, say no, say, say no, say no)
It's why I loathe those tie-ie-ies (say, say no, say no)
They're bland or the tackiest thing in the sto-o-ore (say, say no, say no, say, say no, say no, say, say no, say no)
When wearin' 'em, ties never compliment my outfit (ah-ah-ah)
Some people say they do, but honestly, I doubt i-i-i-it (ah-ah-ah)
Say no, say no, say, say no, say no
Say, say no, say no, say, say no, say no

No shades of grey to i-i-it
I think that ties are shit
Oh, don't care what Matt Smith thi-i-inks
Bowties aren't cool or hip
I refuse to wear this thing 'round (and that's the end of i-i-it)
They're not in the dress-code, bu-u-u-u-ub (there's no rule about it)
I checked with the top bo-oss Phil (not just some whinin' gi-i-it)
And he also thinks they su-u-u-u-uck (I've got backup for it)

Still sayin' no to ties (say no, say no)
They're just askin' to be pulled by some jag-off (say, say no, say no, say, say no, say no, say, say no, say no)
And I'm not jokin', gu-u-uys (say, say no, say no)
Where do you think that I got thi-is big scar fro-o-om? (say, say no, say no, say, say no, say no, say, say no, say no)
Oh, it really has to be acknowledged, can't step 'round it (ah-ah-ah)
Is there a point to ties? Quite honestly, I doubt it (ah-ah-ah)
I say no to tie-ie-ies (say no, say no)
So to answer you, no, I ca-an't tie yours, Pau-au-au-au-au-au-aul (say, say no, say no, say, say no, say no, say, say no, say no)
Say, say no, say no, say, say no, say no
Say, say no, say no, say, say no, say no
Say, say no, say no, say, say no, say no
Say, say no, say no, say, say no, say no

So, a British band with a French name releasing a song about an Italian city? Makes sense to me! No wonder I love this song so much (the epic drums and chanting don't hurt).
