1 2 3 4 - Feist


one, two, three four
tell me that you love me more
sleepless, long nights
that was what my youth was for
Old teenage hopes are alive at your door
left you with nothing,
but they wanted more.
oh, oh, oh,
you're changing your heart.
oh, oh, oh,
you know who you are.
sweetheart, bitter heart,
now i can't tell you apart.
cozy and cold,
put the horse before the cart.
Those teenage hopes who have tears in their eyes
Too scared to own up to one little lie.
oh, oh, oh,
you're changing your heart.
oh, oh, oh,
you know who you are.
one, two, three, four, five, six, nine, and ten.
money can't buy you back the love that you had then.
one, two, three, four, five, six, nine, and ten.
money can't buy you back the love that you had then.
oh, oh, oh,
you're changing your heart.
oh, oh, oh,
you know who you are.
oh, oh, oh,
you're changing your heart.
oh, oh, oh,
you know who you are.
For the teenage boys
They're breaking your heart
For the teenage boys
They're breaking your heart.

One, two, three, four, five, six, nine, and ten implies a technical deficiency in writing lyrics that is only remedied by the often repeated use of the word oh.
As an experienced song writer, this "oh" is one of my go to words when I'm stuck for lyrics. My greatest hit, "Oh My" consists of 51 uses of the word "Oh" followed by the final word, "My". The tension builds throughout.
I would highly recommend this song without even having heard it.

oh
i haven't thought of it that way (i'm no experienced songwriter)
but oh, now that you mention it, i'd love to hear your greatest hit sometime. ;D
