Lyrics Something Stupid

Lyrics Something Stupid – Robbie Williams & Nicole Kidman

(notes about the song follow the video at the end)

I know I stand in line
Until you think you have the time
To spend an evening with me
And if we go someplace to dance
I know that there’s a chance
You won’t be leaving with me

Then afterwards we drop into a quiet little place
And have a drink or two
And then I go and spoil it all
By saying something stupid
Like I love you

I can see it in your eyes
You still despise the same old lines
You heard the night before
And though it’s just a line to you
For me it’s true
And never seemed so right before

I practice every day to find some clever lines to say
To make the meaning come true
But then I think I’ll wait until the evening gets late
And I’m alone with you

The time is right
Your perfume fills my head
The stars get red
And oh the night’s so blue
And then I go and spoil it all
By saying something stupid
Like I love you
I love you…

FACTS ABOUT THE SONG and LYRICS – SOMETHING STUPID

“Somethin’ Stupid” is a song written by C. Carson Parks and originally recorded in 1966 by Parks and his wife Gail Foote, as “Carson and Gaile”. It is best known in the hit version by Frank Sinatra and his daughter, Nancy.

Frank and Nancy Sinatra

The most successful and best known version of the song was issued by Frank and Nancy Sinatra on Frank’s album The World We Knew. Frank Sinatra played Parks’ recording to his daughter Nancy’s producer, Lee Hazlewood, who recalled “He asked me, ‘Do you like it?’ and I said, ‘I love it, and if you don’t sing it
with Nancy, I will.’ He said, ‘We’re gonna do it, book a studio.'” Their rendition was recorded on February 1, 1967. Al Casey played guitar on the recording.

The song spent four weeks at #1 on the US Billboard Hot 100 chart and nine weeks atop the adult contemporary chart, becoming Mr. Sinatra’s second gold single as certified by the RIAA and Ms. Sinatra’s third. It was the first and only instance of a father-daughter number-one song in America. The single also reached #1 on the UK Singles Chart the same year. Because of the song’s intimate nature, this single is sometimes unofficially referred to as “The Incest Song”.
