Song: She Moves In Her Own Way

Even though we jokingly mock a lot of the vacationers out here in the Hamptons (between the botox and the binges, some people just make it too easy), but it's all in good fun - most of the time. But in all seriousness, you can find some of the most talented and successful people right here in the East End between Memorial and Labor Day. And because of that, we're lucky enough to have encountered all kinds of people who move in their own way and who are "moving on to better things". Because sometimes, "looks are deceiving".

And, hell, this song just makes us want to kick off our shoes and dance on the beach. You gotta love The Kooks.

Lyrics:

So at my show on Monday I was told that someday You'd be on your way to better things It's not about your make-up Or how you try to shape up To these tiresome paper dreams Paper dreams honey

So now you pour your heart out You're telling me you're far out You're all about to lie down for your cause But you don't pull my strings Cause I'm a better man Moving on to better things

But uh oh, I love her because She moves in her own way But uh oh, she came to my show Just to hear about my day

And at the show on Tuesday She was in her mindset Tempered firs and spangled boots Looks are deceiving Making me believe it And these tiresome paper dreams Paper dreams honey, yeah

So won't you go far Tell me you're a keeper You're all about to lie down for your cause But you don't pull my strings because Cause I'm a better man Moving on to better things

But uh oh, I love her because She moves in her own way But uh oh, she came to my show Just to hear about my day

Yes our wish's that we never made it Through all the summers We kept them up instead of Kicking us back down to the suburbs Yes our wish's that we never made it Through all the summers We kept them up instead of Kicking us back down to the suburbs

But uh oh, I love her because She moves in her own way But uh oh, she came to my show Just to hear about my day

But uh oh, I love her because She moves in her own way But uh oh, she came to my show Just to hear about my day
