"I remember being transformed, as a teenager, by [Elton' John's]Yellow Brick Roadrecord. I started to take an interest in choosing my own underwear. I wouldn't let my mom buy it anymore."

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 Rotterdam)

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 protect 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

That's the way, uh huh uh huh, I like it

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
You want to be the song
Be the song that you hear in your head

Love in the sun, the sun, the sun

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

Boom cha, boom cha
Discothèque
Boom cha, boom cha
Discothèque
Boom cha, boom cha
Disco, disco, disco, disco, disco

Slave to the sugar
Slave to time
Slave to sugar and
Slave to rhyme
Slave to sugar
Slave to all
Slave to mommy
And the morning bowl
Slave to sugar
Slave to sweetness
Slave to incompleteness
Slave to all
Slave to Rome
Slave to the bus returning home

Big, big black hole
Big, big black hole
Big, big black hole
Big

Boom, discothèque
