Haha I did it! Don't fret! It definately took longer than usually for me. I can usually memorize a song after listening to it about 3 times and looking at the lyrics. But I've been listening to GOYB for a while and I just started singing along. :P

Same. At first it was kind of hard to sing along but as I listened to it more I started singing along all the time!

Yeah, I have it memorized.  I memorized it the first week of release.  It was harder to memorize because it's an atypical song structure.  I'm still not sure what the actual chorus is:  "Sexy boots/Get on your boots/bossy boots" sections or "You don't know how beautiful you are" sections.

 My daughter has already said she has heard it too many times..  so yeah since I usually have lyrics memorized after the 2nd listening I think I might just have it!  The ad came on during the Superbowl and the words from the kitchen were' are you kidding me?'.

Yeah and it's face and kind of hard to concentrate because of the awesomeness of the song. But I can sing it now  ;D

I'm with you StarGuitar, I had it after about the sixth listen. I really like this song... a lot! I thought it was easier to remember than most U2 songs.

It took me about 4 times while looking at the lyrics and I got it down pat.  Amazing song!!!
