Background[]

The song is inspired by the band HelloGoodbye (Not to be confused with the Beatles song of the same name.) who use ukuleles on their albums.

"That’s not a song, that’s an interlude. … That interlude is the oldest thing that’s on the record. And if I’m thinking correctly… yeah, that was written when everything went down. We’d never done interludes before, and we wanted something that told these stories in a more humorous way and kind of sarcastic. Like an off the cuff kind of thing… It’s not to them. Honestly, that interlude was a voice note on my phone for a year and a half before anyone else heard it. I wrote that and “In The Mourning” in the same weekend. We chose to use one of them and not use the other. It was not ever supposed to be heard – but it worked with the uke. It was fun.When we first started writing for the album we tried to write songs like we had done in the past. So there’d be a very energetic, melodic guitar riff, with really heavy guitars behind it and big choruses, very complicated…and we were just not inspired. But that was what we were used to doing. So we wrote the interludes when we didn’t really know what to do! They were a way to get past that. Like, OK, we’re just going to use a ukulele in a song, play a funky bass part and sing silly lyrics. I think having the interludes made us put the record together differently. I don’t know. I just think those had to be written in order for us to write the rest of the songs. I don’t know why, but it just felt like the minute we finished those, it kind of took off. I think they are absolutely one of the most important parts of the album. … Taylor bought a ukulele after our trip to Hawaii—he was just super inspired. And those ‘Interludes’ are actually the reason that we were able to get through two different bouts of writer’s block. And honestly, I think a lot of the creative block came from me trying so hard not to write bitter, angry songs. So I feel like all 14 actual songs on the album are not angry, they’re not bitter. And the ‘Interludes’ are what helped me sarcastically—and humorously—get through some of my feelings that I was having when we started writing this album.” - Hayley Williams

Lyrics[]

Let 'em have their time
Sit back and let 'em shine
Let 'em rise and rise
Cause one day they're gonna fall

Let 'em soak in the sun
Sit back and let 'em have their fun
Let 'em spill their guts
Cause one day they're gonna slip on 'em

Well I could be angry
But you're not worth the fight
And besides I'm moving on

I've counted to ten
And I'm feeling alright
And besides I'm moving on

Let 'em play their songs
Let 'em say what's right and wrong
Let 'em do their thing
Cause they'll never be you and me

We got our own style
We got a way of livin' life
If they can't get down
Well we don't need them around

Well I could be angry
But you're not worth the fight
And besides I'm moving on

I've counted to ten
And I'm feeling alright
And besides I'm moving
Yes I'm moving
Besides I'm moving on
