Kings of Leon - The Bucket

[Verse 1]
I'll be the one to show you the way
You'll be the one to always complain
3 in the morning come a bang, bang, bang
All out of fags and I just can't wait
Cancel the thing that I said I'd do
I don't feel comfortable talking to you
Unless you got the zipper fixed on my shoe
Then I'll be in the lobby drinking for two

[Chorus]
18, balding, star
Golden fallen heart

[Verse 2]
Look at the shakies, what's with the blush?
Fresh off the plane in my fuzzy rush
Everyone's gathered to idolize me
I hate the way you talk your Japanese scream
It's been too long since I left the shed
You kick the bucket and I'll swing my legs
Always remember the pact that we made
Too young to die but old is the grave

[Chorus]
18, balding, star
Golden fallen heart

"The Bucket" is the first single taken from the Aha Shake Heartbreak album by the American rock band Kings of Leon. It is one of the band's most successful singles, reaching number 16 in the UK Singles Chart (making it their most successful UK release at the time) and number 23 in the U.S. Modern Rock chart. In Australia, the song was ranked #31 on Triple J's Hottest 100 of 2004. The song is written about bassist Jared Followill, who was the youngest, dealing with the band's fame at the age of 17. The song was written by Caleb Followill, Nathan Followill, Jared Followill and Matthew Followill. In the music video, the word "legs" (as part of "I'll swing my legs") is censored due to the line meaning to hang oneself.
