"John Lennon really did kind of write the rule book. As a tunesmith, as an irritant, as a willing taker of pratfalls. He was in the queue for the mud pies -- all of that stuff that I do, I got from his little red book."

-- Bono

Discothèque Lyrics

Found On:


PopMart Live From Mexico City (1998)

Note: U2 has released different versions of most singles in different countries. We are not showing every cover image in this space, just one that's representative of each release.

"Discothèque" (live from Mexico City)

B-"I think it's an earnest little riddle about love. I guess, by implication, it's about the counterfeit of what you can't find. People take second best because it's hard to get the real shit." E-"Hahahaha! It's about drugs as well." B-"Yeah, that's one of them, but it's not just drugs. There's a lot of counterfeits out there." - Bono & The Edge, NME 1997

You can reach but you can't grab it
You can't hold it, control it, no
You can't bag it
You can push but you can't direct it
Circulate, regulate, oh no
You cannot connect it

You know you're chewing bubble gum
You know what that is but you still want some
You just can't get enough of that lovie dovie stuff

You get confused but you know it
Yeah, you hurt for it, work for it, love
You don't always show it

Let go, oh oh oh oh
Discothèque
Let go, hey ho
Discothèque
Looking for the one
But you know you're somewhere else insted
You want to be the song
Be the song that you hear in your head

It's not a trick 'cause you can't learn it
It's the way you don't pay that's okay
'Cause you can't earn it

Let go, ay-yi-yi-yo
Discothèque
Go go, hey ho
Discothèque, c'mon
Looking for the one
But you know you're somewhere else instead
I want to be the song
Be the song that you hear in your head

Oh love
You want heaven, you want heaven in your heart
You want heaven, you want heaven in your heart
But you take what you can get
'Cause it's all that you can find
And you know there's something more
But tonight, tonight, tonight

Boom cha, boom cha
Discothèque
Boom cha, boom cha
Discothèque
Boom cha, boom cha
Discothèque
Boom cha, boom cha
Discothèque
Boom cha, boom cha
This ain't no disco
This ain't no party
This ain't no fooling around
No time for heebies
Los CBGBs
I ain't got time for that now
Boom cha, boom cha
Discothèque
Boom cha, boom cha
Discothèque
