Kaiser Cheifs

Kaiser Chiefs

Kaiser Chiefs are an English 5-piece band from Leeds who formed in 1996. They were named after the South African football club Kaizer Chiefs. The name was chosen as the band were big Leeds United fans and their favourite player was Lucas Radebe, the club captain, who had signed for Leeds United from Kaizer Chiefs.


The bands debut album, employment, was released in 2005. It was primarily inspired by New Wave and punk rock music of the late 1970s and 1980s,[3] and enjoyed international success with over three million copies sold.[4] In 2005, the album was shortlisted for the Mercury Prize.[5] In 2006 the band won three Brit Awards, including the award for Best British Group.[6] Kaiser Chiefs' second album, Yours Truly, Angry Mob (2007), yielded "Ruby", a number one single in the United Kingdom.[7] They released their third album, Off with Their Heads, in October 2008. After a three-year hiatus, they released The Future Is Medieval in June 2011.

1# ruby

Kaiser Chiefs - Ruby

the lyrics

[Verse 1:]
Let it never be said
The Romance is dead
'Cause there's so little else
Occupying my head

[Verse 2:]
There is nothing I need
except the function to breathe
But I'm not really fussed
Doesn't matter to me

[Chorus:]
Ruby, Ruby, Ruby, Ruby
Do you, do you, do you, do you
Know what you're doing, doing, to me
Ruby, Ruby, Ruby, Ruby

[Verse 3:]
Due to lack of interest
Tomorrow is canceled
Let the clocks be reset
And the pendulums held

[Verse 4:]
'Cause there's nothing at all
Except the space in-between
Finding out what you're called
And repeating your name

[Chorus]

[Middle 8:]
Could it be, could it be
That you're joking with me?
And you don't really see you and me [x2]

[Chorus:]
Ruby, Ruby, Ruby, Ruby
Do you, do you, do you, do you
Know what you're doing, doing, to me
Ruby, Ruby, Ruby, Ruby
Do you, do you, do you, do you
Know what you're doing, doing, to me

2# i predict a riot

Kaiser Chiefs - I Predict A Riot

the lyrics

Watching the people get lairy
It's not very pretty I tell thee
Walking through town is quite scary
It's not very sensible either
A friend of a friend he got beaten
He looked the wrong way at a policeman
Would never of happened to Smeaton
An old leodensian
I predict a riot
I predict a riot
I predict a riot
I predict a riot
I tried to get to my taxi
The man in a tracksuit attacks me
He said that he saw it before me
And wants to get things a bit gory
Girls scrabble round with no clothes on
To borrow a pound for a condom
If it wasn't for chip fat they'd be frozen
they're not very sensible
I predict a riot
I predict a riot
I predict a riot
I predict a riot
And if there's anybody left in here
That doesn't want to be out there
Watching the people get lairy
It's not very pretty I tell thee
Walking through town is quite scary
It's not very sensible
I predict a riot
I predict a riot
I predict a riot
I predict a riot
And if there's anybody left in here
That doesn't want to be out there
I predict a riot
I predict a riot
I predict a riot
I predict a riot

3# the angry mob

Kaiser Chiefs - The Angry Mob - Official Music Video

the lyrics

I can prove anything
I'll make you admit again and again
I can prove anything
The way that it's read again and again

And its only cos you came here with your brothers too
If you came here on your own you'd be dead
Its only cos you follow what the others do
Its no excuse to say your easily lead

You can choose anything
You choose to lose again and again
You could do anything
Why should you do anything again

And its only cos you came here with your brothers too
If you came here on your own you'd be dead
Winding yourself up until your turning blue
Repeating everything that you've read

And here we go with the letter
Well can you fix it for me
Cos we need entertainment
To keep us all off the streets

So tonight you'll sleep softly in your bed

You can try anything
And no-one would know apart from you and me
You can stop anything
It's starts with just one and turns to two then three

Its only cos you came here with your brothers too
If you came here on your own you'd be dead
Raise a glass or two
You raise a fist or two
Get a shopping basket wrapped round your head

So here we go with the letter
Oh can you fix it for me
24 hour drinking
To keep us all off the streets

So tonight you'll sleep softly in your bed

We are the angry mob
We read the papers everyday day
We like who like
We hate who we hate
But we're also easily swayed
