I’ve always found Lily’s briticisms (e.g., “on a blag,” “get a Chinese,” etc.) even more charming than her potty mouth, so it’s fun to see the pop star get an over-the-top Americana makeover. Here she’s a guest on the fictional ’70s C&W program The Wagon House. Incidentally, the song’s about premature ejaculation (Lily’s not a fan). You probably didn’t expect its video to feature barnyard animals. I’m guessing, I don’t know you that well. Get on your (cowboy) boots…

It’s Not Me, It’s You is out now on Capitol in the US, Parlophone across the pond.

    Probably my favorite song on the new record

  4. Alright, we need to draw a line on the ironic music news reporting. I’ll give you kanye and even coldplay sometimes, but no more lily allen (especially not corny country flavored) or miley cyrus.

    Thanks.

  5. I kind of sort of love this video.

    Can’t she just fucking die ?

  11. Go Lily!  |   Posted on Mar 21st, 2009 0

    I was laughing out loud at that ending! She NEEDS -no, we all need- more airplay! I hope the boys will let her get her due- both personally and professionally–ha!
    She’s truly clever and hilarious! She just needs more airplay… I don’t know how anyone can object to her new songs like “22″ or “Back to the Start.” They are way better than a lot of the pablum that gets all the attention these days!…
    p.s. I think some of the commenters here are a little self-conscious about their sexual performance, or lack thereof!-ha!

    DEVO did this scene 30 years AGO!!! (Whip It) Wish she was Dolly Parton singing with Porter Wagoner – who does the intro- he sang with Dolly often.

  14. i think i just…jizzed in my pants

    God, this song makes me want to take a nailgun to my ears. And it’s not just the premature ejaculation she has a problem with, he won’t even give her some oral to make up for it.

    Didn’t Jenny Lewis already do this video, only much better, for Rise Up With Fists!!?

    Let me tell you… this girl can be so annoying stupid!

  18. Fictional C&W show? It would be more accurate to say she’s a guest on a fictionalized segment of what was a real C&W show. I’m surprised whoever owns the copyright to the show and/or Porter Wagoner’s estate gave permission to alter his words for an introduction to a song that talks about giving head. (I’m fine with the song, but that’s not a match that I would expect the estate of a conservative C&W star to cherish.)

    seems the boys are feeling a little uncomfortable.

    All bands not matter how great or crap will enevitably end up repeating ideas, be it video or music. Look at Oasis or should I say Status Quo (same shit)

    You either like Lilly or not, but she is doing well and this song is great…..do I like the video? Well it does its job..

    It must however be a nightmare to go out with Lilly, constantly living in fear that you’ll get a song written about your sexual performance from her point of view :)

    Thank you! I thought the exact same thing when I saw this video.

  22. Cool baby, cool !

  23. Radio Moscow has a similar video called Mistreating Queen, but their song is much better.

  24. is it weird that i’m really hoping this song ends up on the next kidz bop?

  25. The vids successful in recreating the 70s and country-western feel but it doesn’t really connect to modern times, which would be really cool. It only gets really exciting until the breakdown/bridge when Allen starts dancing and clapping.

  26. What’s not fair is how perfectly adorable she is while airing her sexual grievances. I love that LIly.

    ur a complete idiot you havent even met her and u want her to die just because of a song u dont like! get a life! its people like u that make this world more and more idiotic

    She is so damn sexy. Not many girls could pull that off.

  31. FYI: Porter Wagoner broke all kinds of boundaries. He brought James Brown to the Grand Ole Opry, he treated Dolly Parton with a kind of collegial respect that was not common for women in the Country music business of that time. AND his last concert — at the age of 80 — was to open for the White Stripes at Madison Square Garden!! Do a little research before you shoot your mouth off.
