Lana Del Rey ♪ Video Games
Swinging in the backyard
Pull up in your fast car
Whistling my name

Open up a beer
And you say get over here
And play a video game

I'm in his favorite sun dress
Watching me get undressed
Take that body downtown

I say you the bestest
Lean in for a big kiss
Put his favorite perfume on

Go play a video game

 It's you, it's you, it's all for you
 Everything I do
 I tell you all the time
 Heaven is a place on earth with you
 Tell me all the things you want to do
 I heard that you like the bad girls
 Honey, is that true?

 It's better than I ever even knew
 They say that the world was built for two
 Only worth living if somebody is loving you
 Baby now you do

Singing in the old bars
Swinging with the old stars
Living for the fame

Kissing in the blue dark
Playing pool and wild darts
Video games

He holds me in his big arms
Drunk and I am seeing stars
This is all I think of

Watching all our friends fall
In and out of Old Paul's
This is my idea of fun
Playing video games

The video is a bit repetitive. Also, what's with the flashing of American Flags one too many times? This is a love song, not in memory of JFK. Artistic theme of retro American culture, fine, flash flag once. But trice?

And if you check several of her songs on youtube, seems every video's got a American flag in it.
