In November, Lily Allen stirred up quite a hubbub with the controversial video for "Hard Out Here," her first new song in four years, and now she's followed it up with another single. "Air Balloon" trades its predecessor's cynicism for carefree charm, and it's now available to stream above via YouTube.

With a beat bolstered by hand claps and a punchy bass drum, the song finds Allen in good spirits, singing about her uncle's monkey and getting to first base with Elvis. Especially with her post-chorus "na na nas," Allen spends a good deal of the song sounding like a less pissed-off M.I.A. This is cheeky British pop music at its most radio-friendly.

"Air Balloon" is the second single from Lily Allen's yet-to-be-titled new album, which also has yet to receive a release date. Until all of those details get hammered out, keep yourself entertained by revisiting the "Hard Out Here" video.

Lily Allen "Air Balloon" lyrics:

Somebody remind me where I am
Miami or Timbuktu?
Did I ever tell you my uncle's monkey ran away from the zoo?
Would you tell me what this all means?
What happens if I go through that door?
Cause I'm looking up at the ceiling, but it's turning into the floor

When I'm bored, I, kinda drift away,
I'm not sure, quite, why we work all day
I've been thinking, and I've got this plan

Let's go, right now

Come meet me in the sky I'll be waiting for you
And we can't hear what they say
Up in my air balloon, air balloon, air balloon
Sing, sing along, along any song you want to
Now we're so high, it can't rain
Up in my air balloon, air balloon, air balloon (ha)

Na na na na na na...mmmm
Na na na na na na...mmmm

I don't like dropping names but Kurt Cobain is all in my face
How the hell am I gonna tell him Elvis already took first base?
In and out of the blue this cruise is losing altitude, all we need
Is a little more elevation, take me back to where I can breathe.

When I'm bored, I, kinda drift away
I'm not sure, quite, why we work all day
I've been thinking, and I've got this plan

Let's go, right now

Come meet me in the sky I'll be waiting for you
And we can't hear what they say
Up in my air balloon, air balloon, air balloon
Sing, sing along, along any song you want to
Now we're so high, it can't rain
Up in my air balloon, air balloon, air balloon (ha)

Na na na na na na...mmmm
Na na na na na na...mmmm
Na na na na na na...mmmm
Na na na na na na...mmmm

Shake it, sh- shake it now
Gimme, gimme some
Sailing sa-sailing through the clouds
Trippin' trip trip it now

Shake it, sh- shake it now
Gimme, gimme some
Sailing sa-sailing through the clouds
Trippin' trip trip it now

Come meet me in the sky I'll be waiting for you
And we can't hear what they say
Up in my air balloon, air balloon, air balloon
Sing, sing along along any song you want to
Now we're so high it can't rain
Up in my air balloon, air balloon, air balloon

Come meet me in this.....Na na na na na na
