#SELFIE Lyrics
Jump to:
When Jason was at the table
I kept on seeing him look at me when he was with that other girl
Do you think he was just doing that to make me jealous?
Because he was totally texting me all night last night
and I don't know if it's a booty call or not
Sooo... like what do you think?
Did you think that girl was pretty?
How did that girl even get in here?
Did you see her?
She's so short and that dress is so tacky
Who wears cheetah?
It's not even summer, why does the DJ keep on playing Summertime Sadness?
After we go to the bathroom, can we go smoke a cigarette?
I really need one
But first,

[Beat Drops]

Can you guys help me pick a filter?
I don't know if I should go with XX Pro or Valencia
I wanna look tan
What should my caption be?
I want it to be clever
How about "Livin' with my bitches, Hashtag LIVE"
I only got 10 likes in the last 5 minutes
Do you think I should take it down?

[Beat Drops]

Wait, pause, Jason just liked my selfie
What a creep
Is that guy sleeping over there?
Yeah, the one next to the girl with no shoes on
That's so ratchet
That girl is such a fake model
She definitely bought all her Instagram followers
Who goes out on Mondays?
OK, let's go take some shots
Oh no, I feel like I'm gonna throw up
Oh wait, nevermind I'm fine
Let's go dance
There's no vodka at this table
Do you know anyone else here?
Oh my god, Jason just texted me
Should I go home with him?
I guess I took a good selfie

[Selfie on repeat]



#SELFIE is a song by American EDM duo, The Chainsmokers, and was released as a single on January 28, 2014, by Dim Mak Records. "#Selfie" is a EDM song that is mostly instrumental though it features spoken word verses; the uncredited talking female vocals in the song is by Alexis Killacam.

The song details a young woman at a club, presumably speaking to friends, as she is concerned about taking selfies and uploading them to her Instagram account, while she criticizes other people at the club, including their outfits, while also dealing with a guy named Jason, that she has a love/hate relationship with though she also might have a crush on him as well.

A 'Selfie' is a self-portrait photograph, which is normally taken with a digital camera or camera phone. By the end of 2013 'Selfie' had become such a buzzword that it was chosen by The Oxford Dictionary as their 'Word of the Year.'

The Chainsmokers said:
"The classic #Selfie, well it pretty much defines 2013… when VH1 does "remember the", the Selfie will deserve its own section."
