The 1975 - Chocolate

Hey now call it a spliff 'cause you know that you will
Oh you bite your friend like chocolate
You say, we'll go where nobody knows, with guns hidden under our petticoats
No we're never gonna quit it, no we're never gonna quit it no

Now run, run away from the boys in the blue, and my car smells like chocolate
Hey now I think about what you do, I think about what they say, I think about how to think
Pause it, play it, pause it, play it, pause it

Oh we go where nobody knows, with guns hidden under our petticoats
No we're never gonna quit it, no we're never gonna quit it no
Yeah we're dressed in black from head to toe, we've got guns hidden under our petticoats
No we're never gonna quit it. No we're never gonna quit it no

Now you're never gonna quit it, Now you're never gonna quit it, Now you're never gonna quit it
If you don't start smoking it, that's what she said

She said we're dressed in black, head to toe, with guns hidden under our petticoats
And we're never gonna quit it, no we're never gonna quit it no

Hey now we're building up speed as we're approaching the hill
My hair smells like chocolate
Hey now you say you're gonna quit it but you're never gonna quit it
Go get it, go get it, go get it, go get it, go
And play it cool
!

Oh and you said we go where nobody knows, with guns hidden under our petticoats
No we're never gonna quit it, no we're never gonna quit it no
Yeah we're dressed in black, from head to toe, we've got guns hidden under our petticoats
We're never gonna quit it, no we're never gonna quit it no

[2x]
Well I think we better go,
Serious you better go
Said the feds are here you know
Serious you better go, oh oh,
Well I think we better go
Said the feds are here you know
Said Rebbecca better know
Serious you better go


We go where nobody knows, guns hidden under our petticoats
No we're never gonna quit it, no we're never gonna quit it no
Yeah we're dressed in black from head to toe, guns hidden under our petticoats
We're never gonna quit it, no we're never gonna quit it no
No no no

Well I think we better go,
Serious you better go
Said the feds are here you know
Serious you better go, oh oh,
Well I think we better go
Said the feds are here you know
Said Rebbecca better know
Serious you better go

Peaking at #19 on the UK Singles Chart and becoming certified Gold in the United States, “Chocolate” is arguably The 1975’s most well-known song. The song’s popularity gave the band their first radio play. “Chocolate” was released as a single from their self-titled debut album, but it was originally recorded and released on their Music for Cars EP. The song takes listeners into the boys' rebellious lives, with chocolate being utilized as a euphemism for marijuana. Frontman Matty Healy spoke with Songs for Whoever on the story behind the song: "Chocolate tells the story of our relationships with the governing authorities of our small town. Smoking weed, smoking anything I suppose, boredom and what ensues when both parties challenge one another. It’s a love letter to boredom, limited opportunities of expressing yourself and embracing and understanding the make up of where you’re from. Musically and structurally it is the blueprint of our output, but I’d need an entire book to discuss that in detail."
