About Richard III

"Richard III" is a song by the band Supergrass. It was the second single to be released from In It for the Money, the band's second album. The single was preceded by "Going Out", which was released over a year before. "Richard III" was released in March 1997 and reached number two on the UK Singles Chart on 6 April, their highest placing since "Alright"/"Time" in 1995. The song also reached number 21 in Iceland and number 30 in Ireland. The song's name comes from the band's method of creating working titles for songs - giving them people's names. This was the third called "Richard" and the band liked the reference to the king Richard III and the Shakespeare play Richard III in which the king is depicted as a dark and evil character, as it matched the menacing tone of the song. Neither the king nor the play is mentioned in the song. Both the 2nd CD (of the CD release format) and the 7" vinyl format have the "Richard III" cover design but with the colours altered instead. A Peel session of the song was released on the CD single for "Mary".

Got it today, what a day, thanks a million!
Spent too much time wondering why I got a feeling,
I know you wanna try to get away,
But it's the hardest thing, you'll ever know!

Waited in line, a terrible time, over to near you,
Fading away, nothing to say, you're all that I'm hearin',
I know you wanna try to get away,
But it's the hardest thing, you'll ever know!

Try to get you, try to get you!
Try to get you, try to get you, 
Try to get you, try to get you!
I know you wanna try to get away,
But it's the hardest thing, you'll ever know!

I know you wanna try to get away,
But it's the hardest thing, you'll ever know!
