Song lyrics
Pack up
I'm straight
Oh say say say
Oh say say say
Oh say say say
Oh say say say
Oh say say say

Wait they don't love you like i love you
Wait they don't love you like i love you
Wait they don't love you like i love you

Made off
don't stray
well my kinds your kind i'll stay the same

Pack up
don't stray
oh say say say
oh say say say

Wait they don't love you like i love you
Wait they don't love you like i love you
Wait they don't love you like i love you
Wait they don't love you like i love you
Wait they don't love you like i love you

(repeat chorus)

this song is f... great...the band is awesome.
they're gonna play here, in Rio, in October. looking foward to seeing.

btw, i think the word "maps" is about the other person looking for another love or relationship but everywhere he goes she reminds him that no love can be compared to hers.

this is great a great song, proof that you don't need tiring amounts of lyrics to make a great song. and this song makes its point. its about someone leaving, and the person is contradicting his or herself saying that they are fine, when they really cant stand to see that person leave, "Pack up, I'm Straight, I'm not." maps meaning they are traveling away. ugggh such a great song, props for the yeah yeah yeahs.

I really like this song. While I wish there was a bit more depth to the lyrics, Karen O's voice puts all my thoughts about that to rest. Nick's guitar work and Brian at the drums just make this song even better. A song that always brightens my day when it's on my playlist.

! Need to think deep about the lyrics, which is what I interpreted, is mainly about a person ("Maps") about to leave its lover (Karen O.) because a outside force(s) is persuading the person to leave, but the lover is desepartely trying to keep the person from leaving because the lover loves the person more than the outside force(s) loves the person ("Wait, they don't love you like I love you") ( a lot was just said, I know!). Sad thing about this song is that we never know if Karen gets whoever she wanted back. more !

... Oh yeah, great song !

I like the chorus, but this song makes no sense and it annoys me. Yet she sings well.

This was the first song I heard by them, as with many other people. I loved it immediately. In many other Yeah Yeah Yeahs comments on songs, I have mentioned that I love Karen O. Well, let me make it clear now that I absolutely love David Chase. He's sort of the neglected one. I'm getting offtopic. Good song though.

Like all there other videos, Maps is a strange one.
I'm guessing they're auditioning for a band at some school dance.....?

and I thought it was rude how nobody did anything after they stopped their song.
but then again it would be corny that they would applaud and stuff, so im pretty lost here.

but this songs pretty good.
