Best Song Ever Lyrics by One Direction


One Direction Lyrics

Best Song Ever Lyrics
Maybe it's the way she walked (wow)
Straight into my heart and stole it.
Through the doors and past the guards (wow),
Just like she already owned it.

I said, "Can you give it back to me?"
She said, "Never in your wildest dreams."

And we danced all night to the best song ever.
We knew every line. Now I can't remember
How it goes but I know that I won't forget her
'Cause we danced all night to the best song ever.

I think it went oh, oh, oh
I think it went yeah, yeah, yeah
I think it goes oh

Said her name was Georgia Rose (wow),
And her daddy was a dentist.
Said I had a dirty mouth (I got a dirty mouth)
But she kissed me like she meant it.

I said, "Can I take you home with me?"
She said, "Never in your wildest dreams."

And we danced all night to the best song ever.
We knew every line. Now I can't remember
How it goes but I know that I won't forget her
'Cause we danced all night to the best song ever.

I think it went oh, oh, oh
I think it went yeah, yeah, yeah
I think it goes oh

You know, I know, you know I'll remember you,
And I know, you know, I know you'll remember me,
[In background:]
(oh, oh, oh
Yeah, yeah, yeah)
And you know, I know, you know I'll remember you,
And I know, you know, I hope you'll remember how we danced, how we danced

1, 2, 1, 2, 3

How we danced all night to the best song ever.
We knew every line. Now I can't remember
How it goes but I know that I won't forget her
'Cause we danced all night to the best song ever.
(We danced, we danced, it goes something like, yeah)

We danced all night to the best song ever.
We knew every line. Now I can't remember
How it goes but I know that I won't forget her
'Cause we danced all night to the best song ever.

I think it went oh, oh, oh
I think it went yeah, yeah, yeah
I think it goes oh

Best song ever,
It was the best song ever.
It was the best song ever,
It was the best song ever.

Best Song Ever Info:

Best Song Ever was released on 22 July 2013 by Syco and Columbia as the lead single from the group's third studio album, Midnight Memories. It was announced by One Direction in a video uploaded to their YouTube channel on 25 June 2013.

MTV News UK asked Drewett what makes the track the 'Best Song Ever,' He jokingly replied: "We weren't bragging when we wrote it. The song was about them singing the best song ever. It is the best song ever because I wrote it and they're singing it. So that's enough."

Speaking with MTV News, Julian Bunetta discussed the song's resemblance to The Who's classic 1971 tune "Baba O'Riley." "It starts with a synth and 'Baba O'Riley' starts with a synth," he noted. "I mean that's a huge compliment because if that can evoke that same excitement than that's amazing but that was not theā€¦ we weren't saying 'OK, let's rip off 'Baba O'Riley'.'" Bunetta added: "At a certain point we recognized it had the same type of intro where there's a synth and a piano, but we really tried to make sure that there was no intellectual property stolen or anything like that."

The Who guitarist Pete Townshend brushed off unsubstantiated reports that his band wanted to sue One Direction or seek to have this song withdrawn. "No! I like the single. I like One Direction," he told Uncut magazine. "The chords I used and the chords they used are the same three chords we've all been using in basic pop music since Buddy Holly, Eddie Cochran and Chuck Berry made it clear that fancy chords don't mean great music - not always. "
