The Shins – Name For You (Flipped)


They got a name for you girls
What’s in a name?
[Verse 2]
Rolling down the ancient high street you find
They got a name for everything
Flipping through the check-stand rags it appears
If you just never eat again
In a world dearly won
[Outro]
What’s in a name, name, name, name?
They’re just afraid of you speaking your mind
All of them clothes that you wear
What’s in a name, name?

But what do you really dream of at night?
Have you really got room in your life?

In the mirror reflects a woman in her prime
There ain’t no time to waste, you’re getting on in years
What’s in a name?
You can move it around
Well it’s yours, love
(What’s in a name?) What’s in a name?
You’ve played the mother and wife
[Chorus]
(What’s in a) What’s in a name, name?
And you made your way out
Somebody with an antique notion

They got a name for you girls
They got a name for you girls
What’s in a name?
They got a name for you girls
Come along to tighten the line
And it’s a bland kind of torture
What’s in a name?
It’s a means to a terrible end
You can keep your can up
What’s in a name? (What’s in a name, what’s in a name?)
Some stupid name, yeah
Given all the drops in the ocean
Your mind
What’s in a name? (What’s in a name?)
Even if your plan is successful

And all of your bits and pieces, yeah
Better take it one sip at a time
[Verse 1]
What’s in a name, name?
