Uma Thurman Lyrics
Jump to:
I can move mountains
I can work a miracle, work a miracle
oh, oh
I'll keep you like an oath
May nothing but death do us part

She wants to dance like Uma Thurman
Bury me 'til I confess
She wants to dance like Uma Thurman
And I can't get you out of my head

The stench, the stench of summer sex
And CK Eternity, oh hell yes
Divide me down to the smallest I can be
Put your, put your, put your venom in me

I can move mountains
I can work a miracle, work a miracle
oh, oh
I'll keep you like an oath
May nothing but death do us part

She wants to dance like Uma Thurman
Bury me 'til I confess
She wants to dance like Uma Thurman
And I can't get you out of my head

The blood, the blood, the blood of the lamb
Is worth two lions, but here I am
And I slept in last night's clothes and tomorrow's dreams
But they're not quite what they seem

I can move mountains
I can work a miracle, work a miracle
oh, oh
I'll keep you like an oath
May nothing but death do us part

You'll find your way
And may death find you alive
Take me down the line
In gem city we turned the tides
You'll find your way
And may death find you alive
Take me down the line
In gem city we turned the tides

She wants to dance like Uma Thurman
Bury me 'til I confess
She wants to dance like Uma Thurman
And I can't get you out of my head

I can move mountains
I can work a miracle, work a miracle
oh, oh
I'll keep you like an oath
May nothing but death do us part

I can move mountains
I can work a miracle, work a miracle
oh, oh
I'll keep you like an oath
May nothing but death do us part

Uma Thurman Info:

• The song samples from the opening credits of the 1960s show The Munsters

• The song references the scene in Pulp Fiction where Uma Thurman asks John Travolta to dance with her during the twist contest at Jack Rabbit Slim's. There are also references to another Tarantino movie, Kill Bill.

• Pete Wentz explained: "Originally, when we came up with the idea, and there was this sample in it, which is a sample from The Munsters TV show, people kept saying 'oh cool, like Quentin Tarantino, cool' when we played it. We decided why don't we kind of create this world around that?"

"To me, Uma Thurman and Winona Ryder, they were these women in pop culture who were quirky, but that made me only crush on them harder, and rather than going with the traditional Uma Thurman role, we thought a lot about Kill Bill and who her character was in that, and this kind of resilience and this violence, but there's something that's authentic about it (like a woman taking revenge or being empowered)."

"So that's what the chorus of the song's about, and the verses are what you would do to try and capture this woman's affection."
