Venice Bitch Lyrics

[Verse 1]
Fear fun, fear love
Fresh out of fucks, forever
Tryin' to be stronger for you
Ice cream, ice queen
I dream in jeans and leather
Life's dream, I'm sweet for you

[Chorus]
Oh God, miss you on my lips
It's me, your little Venice bitch
On the stoop with the neighborhood kids
Callin' out, bang bang, kiss kiss

[Post-Chorus]
You're in the yard, I light the fire
And as the summer fades away
Nothing gold can stay
You write, I tour, we make it work
You're beautiful and I'm insane
We're American-made

[Verse 2]
Give me Hallmark
One dream, one life, one lover

Paint me happy and blue
Norman Rockwell

No hype under our covers
It's just me and you


[Chorus]
Oh God, miss you on my lips
It's me, your little Venice bitch
On the stoop with the neighborhood kids
Callin' out, bang bang, kiss kiss

[Post-Chorus]
You're in the yard, I light the fire
And as the summer fades away
Nothing gold can stay
You write, I tour, we make it work
You're beautiful and I'm insane
We're American-made

[Bridge 1]
Oh... yeah, oh... yeah, oh... yeah
Signin' off, bang bang, kiss kiss
Yeah (oh)... yeah, oh... yeah, oh... yeah
Signin' off, bang bang, kiss kiss


[Chorus]
Oh god, want you on my lips (I do, I do)
It's me, your little Venice bitch (Yes it is)
On the stoop with the neighborhood kids
Signin' off, bang bang, kiss kiss

[Bridge 1]
Oh... shatter (yeah), oh... shatter (yeah, yeah), oh... shatter (yeah)
(Signin' off, bang bang, kiss kiss)
Yeah, yeah
Yeah (oh)... yeah, oh... yeah, oh... yeah
(Signin' off, bang bang, kiss kiss)
Yeah, yeah


[Verse 3]
You heard my baby's back in town now
You should come, come over
We'll be hanging around now
You should come, come over

[Chorus]
Oh God, I love him on my lips
It's me, your little Venice bitch
Touch me with your fingertips
It's me, your little Venice bitch

[Verse 4]
Ba-back in the garden
We're getting high now, because we're older
Me, myself, I like diamonds
My baby, crimson and clover

[Bridge 2]
(La-la-la-la-la, beautiful, beautiful, beautiful)
(La-la-la-la-la, beautiful, beautiful, beautiful)
Wha-wha-wha-wha-whatever
Everything, whatever
Wha-wha-wha-wha-whatever
Everything, whatever

[Guitar Solo]

[Bridge 3]
Oh-ah, ah, ah, ah
Ah... yeah, ah... yeah
(La-la-la-la-la, beautiful, beautiful, beautiful)
Ah... yeah, ah... ah
(La-la-la-la-la, beautiful, beautiful, beautiful)
La-la-la-la-la, beautiful, (yeah) beautiful, beautiful (yeah)
La-la-la-la-la, beautiful, (yeah) beautiful, beautiful (yeah)
La-la-la-la-la, beautiful, beautiful, beautiful
La-la-la-la-la, beautiful, beautiful, beautiful

[Verse 4]
Back in the garden
We're getting high now, because we're older
Me, myself, I like diamonds
My baby, crimson and clover

[False Outro]
Crimson and clover, honey
Crimson and clover, honey
Crimson and clover, honey
Crimson and clover, honey
Crimson and clover, honey
Crimson and clover, honey

Over and over, honey
Over and over, honey
Over and over, honey
Over and over, honey
Over and over

[Guitar Solo]

[Outro]
If you weren't mine, I'd be
Jealous of your love
If you weren't mine, I'd be
Jealous of your love
If you weren't mine, I'd be
Jealous of your love
If you weren't mine, I'd be
Jealous of your love
If you weren't mine, I'd be
Jealous of your love

About “Venice Bitch”

“Venice Bitch” is the second single off Lana Del Rey’s sixth studio album. It was written with and produced by Jack Antonoff. The title can be heard in the first single “Mariners Apartment Complex”, which was released a week prior.

In the track Lana gives an overview of herself and her man living at their best with snapshots of happy moments as time fades away, the plot is an extention of the album’s title track “Norman Fucking Rocwell”. The track flows with a nostalgic feel turning into a psychedelic trip with soft-rock elements like electric guitars, synths and drums.

The track runs for 9 minutes 36 seconds, making it Lana’s longest so far. The previous record was set by the almost 7 minutes long “Cruel World”, released in 2014.

Del Rey took her Instagram to preview the track and announce the song’s release date via Beats 1 Radio on September 18th.
