Lana Del Rey’s Greatest Lyrics GIFed And Illustrated

LDR’s genius drawn and animated

Crushed flowers, broken lips, diet soda, and late-night TV: The subjects and substance of Lana Del Rey combine to create the great American poem of our time. Matter of fact, Lana Del Rey is herself one of the great American poets of our time. A combination of lovely nonsense, cheap, bubblegum-flavored Schnapps, and cigarette burns, she and the words that spill out of her mouth are our everything, your everything, everyone's everything.

In tribute to her and her Internet-friendly genius, we've turned to our electronic easels and created—or attempted to create—animated images that capture her unique, cherry-cola brilliance. They're our gift to her after all the gifts she's given us. We can only hope that we've done our Restylane muse justice.

Click through, let the magic wash over you, and share with your LDR-loving friends.

"Play house, put my favorite record on

Get down, get your crystal method on

You were like, tall, tan, driving 'round the city

Flirtin' with the girls like, "You're so pretty."

"Springsteen is the king, don't you think?"

I was like, "Hell yeah, that guy can sing."

"Leather black and eyes of blue (blue, blue, blue)

Sun reflecting in your eyes, like an easy rider

Life makes sense when I'm with you

Looking back, my past

It all seems stranger than a stranger"

"Blue hydrangea, cold cash, divine,

Cashmere, cologne and white sunshine.

Red racing cars, Sunset and Vine,

The kids were young and pretty."

"Sweet sixteen and we had arrived

Baby's table dancin' at the local dive

Cheering our names in the pink spotlight

Drinkin' cherry schnapps in the velvet night"

"Got your bible, got your gun,

And you like to party and have fun.

And I like my candy and your women,

I'm finally happy now that you're gone."

"Baby put on heart shaped sunglasses

Cause we gonna take a ride

I’m not gonna listen to what the past says

I’ve been waiting up all night

Take another drag turn me to ashes

Ready for another lie?

Says he’s gonna teach me just what fast is

Say it’s gonna be alright"

"The other woman has time to manicure her nails

The other woman is perfect where her rival fails

And she's never seen with pin curls in her hair anywhere

The other woman enchants her clothes with French perfume

The other woman keeps fresh cut flowers in each room

There are never toys that's scattered everywhere"

"All the lights in Miami begin to gleam

Ruby, blue and green, neon too

Everything looks better from above my king

Like aqua marine, ocean's blue"

"My baby lives in shades of blue

Blue eyes and jazz and attitude

He lives in California too

He drives a Chevy Malibu"
