The Hives - Tick Tick Boom Lyrics

Yeah (3x)
I was right all along
Yeah (3x)
You come tagging along
Exhibit A
On a tray
What you say
Ends up thrown in your face
Exhibit B
What you see
Well that's me
I'll put you back in your place

Yeah I've done it before
And I can do it some more
So what you waiting for?
Yeah
I was right all along

Chorus

You know I've done it before
And I can do it some more
I've got my eye on the score
I'm gonna cut through the floor
It's too late
It's too soon
Or is it

Tick Tick Tick Tick Tick Tick Tick ... Boom!!

Yeah (3x)
I was right you were wrong
Yeah (3x)
Going, going you're gone!
I saw you yesterday, waiting too much
Till it slipped through your hands
And then you stagger to your feet and out the door
'Coz there's no second chance!

Chorus

Now you come crying to me
But it's too late!
The man you're proud to be
But it's too late!
Get your head out of the sand
But it's too late!!

It's too late,
Too late ! (3x)

Yeah!
But it's too late! (2x)

Get your head out of the sand,
But it's too late!

Chorus

It's too late
It's too soon
It's too late
It's too soon
It's too late
It's too soon

Or is it ...

Tick Tick Tick Tick Tick Tick Tick....
Boom!!!



After they lent their riffing skills to the Timbaland album and hooked up with the Neptunes, it was tempting to imagine that The Hives were about to undergo a ghetto fabulous makeover. Would the Swedes swap their sharply-tailored suits for oversized Sean John T-shirts? Would Howlin' Pete Almqvist start to rap? Would Gwen Stefani sing the hook on one of the lesser album tracks? Honest to goodness, our minds ran amok.

But 'Tick Tick Boom', the first single from the Swedes' forthcoming Black and White Album, showcases a slight sonic modification rather than a radical musical reinvention. There are some subtle electro blips during the middle 8, and producer Dennis Herring really goes to town with an exploding bomb sound effect (Tick... Tick... Booooom! Geddit?), but the main ingredients are classic Hives: a frenetic garage-rock beat, buzz-saw riffs and Howlin' Pete Almqvist's inimitable wail. The whole effect is scuzzier than a snack from a Hackney kebab shop, but just as tasty. source digitalspy.co.uk
