"Music to Watch Boys To" is a song written by Lana Del Rey that will feature on Del Rey's third major-label full-length album Honeymoon. The song will be released as the second single on September 11, 2015.

Background

Del Rey first mentioned the song as a potential title for the whole album in late June, 2014.[1] On January 2, 2015, Del Rey opened up a little more on the song, elaborating on how she wrote it in a visual, noirish way saying "the title [of the song] lends itself to a visual of shadows of men passing by, this girl's eyes, her face. I can definitely see things."[2]

Release

On June 4, 2015, model Jake Mast tweeted that the music video he had filmed with Del Rey earlier in the year was for the track and would be released in June,[3] however, by the end of the month, no video had been released. On September 1, 2015, Del Rey posted a photo depicting the behind-the-scenes of the music video for the track on Instagram. A snippet of the song was featured alongside excerpts from "Terrence Loves You", "Freak" and "High By the Beach" in an album sampler released September 8, 2015.

On September 9, 2015, Del Rey posted on social media sites the official single cover and announced the track will be premiering on Beats 1.

Lyrics

I like you a lot
Putting on my music while I’m watching the boys
So I do what you want
Singing soft grunge just to soak up the noise
We’re ribbons on ice
Playing their guitars, only one of my toys
'Cause I like you a lot
No holds barred, I’ve been sent to destroy, yeah

Pink flamingos, always fascinated me
I know what only the girls know
Hoes with lies akin to me

Oh, oh, I see you're going
So I play my music, watch you leave

I like you a lot
Putting on my music while I’m watching the boys
So I do what you want
Singing soft grunge just to soak up the noise
We’re ribbons on ice
Playing their guitars, only one of my toys
'Cause I like you a lot
No holds barred, I’ve been sent to destroy, yeah

Perfect demon and living single
They never thought that I could be
I knew what only the girls know
Lies can buy eternity

I see you leaving
So I push record and watch you leave

I like you a lot
Putting on my music while I’m watching the boys
So I do what you want
Singing soft grunge just to soak up the noise
We’re ribbons on ice
Playing their guitars, only one of my toys
'Cause I like you a lot
No holds barred, I’ve been sent to destroy, yeah

Live to love you
And I love to love you
And I live to love you
Live to love you
And I love to love you
And I live to love you
Nothing gold can stay
Like love or lemonade
Or sun or summer days
It's all a game to me anyway

I like you a lot
Putting on my music while I’m watching the boys
So I do what you want
Singing soft grunge just to soak up the noise
We’re ribbons on ice
Playing their guitars, only one of my toys
'Cause I like you a lot
No holds barred, I’ve been sent to destroy, yeah

Putting on my music while I'm watching the boys
Putting on my music while I'm watching the boys
