King Krule - Easy Easy

[Verse 1]
Well same old Bobby, same old beat
Well yeah they got nothing on me
The same old cars, same old streets
But yeah they got nothing on me
And easy come and easy go
Well yeah I'm sure I told you so
Well they just want you for your dough
Man I'm sure I told you so
And while your dead-end job
Has been eating away your life
You feel little inside
The trouble and strife
And now you spend your evenings
Searching for another life
And yeah I think, mate
I think you've got them in your sights

Well, easy easy
There's no need to take that tone
Well easy
I'm on the telephone
Man just leave us alone

[Verse 2]
Ow no I should've kept my receipt
Cause the sandwich I bought
Yeah it's been off for a week
And 'low Tesco's stealing my money
When positivity seems hard to reach
I keep my head down and my mouth shut
Cause if you’re going through hell
You just keep going

“Easy Easy” is the opening track of King Krule’s debut album, 6 Feet Beneath the Moon, which was released the same day that Marshall turned 19. Marshall wrote the song when he was 12 years old. He described the track's raw production to MTV News as "Immature and naive," "basic" and "s--t-." "That's why I quite like it," he added. "I feel that the album is a very self-centered record, so I wanted to make it apparent that I'd been working on it throughout my life and it had aspects from when I was really young — from my birth — until now. So I wanted to cut it off at a very clear date of 19 years. That seemed the easiest way of doing it." Marshall told The Fly magazine that a lot of things happened to him while making 6 Feet Beneath The Moon. "So many events that haven't been my doing," he explained, "that just sprung up on me. I've been submerged in a lot of things. The album reflects that. 'Easy Easy' is about getting ripped off in a Tesco (supermarket) in Selhurst near Croydon. It's a pain that that happened!" Beyoncé officially endorsed the song on her Beyhive Blog next to her favorite designers and vacation hot spots. Marshall told Q magazine he finds it hard to listen to this song now. "A lot of people took from it that it was a very socially observant song," he said. "But to me it was quite immature rambling about the area (I lived in )."
