The View from the Afternoon – Arctic Monkeys

Anticipation has the habit to set you up
For disappointment in evening entertainment but
Tonight there’ll be some love
Tonight there’ll be a rawkus, regardless of what’s gone before
I want to see all of the things that we’ve already seen
The lairy girls hung out the window of the limousine
And of course its fancy dress
And they’re all looking quite full on
In bunny ears and devil horns

I want to see all of the things that we’ve already seen
I want to see you take the jackpot out the fruit machine
And put it all back in
You’ve got to understand it you can never beat the bandit

And she won’t be surprised and she won’t be shocked
When she’s pressed the star after she’s pressed unlock
And there’s verse and chapter sat in her inbox
And all that it says is that you’ve drank a lot
You should bear that in mind tonight
You can pour your heart out but her reasoning will block
owt you send her after nine o clock

You can pour your heart out around 3 o clock
When the 2 for 1’s undone the writers block

Red Light Indicates Doors Are Secured – Arctic Monkeys

Ask if we can have six in, if not we’ll have to have 2
You’re coming up our end aren’t you? So I’ll get one with you
Oh won’t he let us have six in? especially not with the food
He coulda just told us no though, he dint have to be rude

You see her in the green dress? She talked to me at the bar
How come its already two pound fifty? We’ve only gone about a yard
Dint ya see she were gorgeous, she was beyond belief
But this lad at the side drinking a Smirnoff ice came and paid for her tropical Reef

And I’m sitting going backwards, and I didn’t want to leave
I said, “It’s High Green mate, via Hillsborough please!”

Well how funny was that sketch earlier, up near that taxi rank
Oh no you will have missed it, think it was when you went to the bank
These two lads squaring up proper shoutin’, ’bout who was next in the queue
The kind of thing that would seem so silly but not when they’ve both had a few

Well calm down temper temper, you shouldn’t get so annoyed
You’re acting like a silly little boy
They wanted to be men and do some fighting in the street
He said no surrender, no chance of retreat

And so why are we in a taxi?
‘Cause I didn’t want to leave
I said “It’s High Green Mate, via Hillsborough please!”

Drunken plots hatched to jump it, ask around are ya sure?
Went for it but the red light was showing
And the red light indicates doors are secured

Brianstorm – Arctic Monkeys

Some old track… or brian strom

Brian,
Top marks for not tryin’
So kind of you to bless us with your effortlessness
We’re grateful and so strangely comforted

And I wonder are you puttin’ us under
Cause we can’t take our eyes off the t-shirt and ties combination
Well see you later, innovator

Some want to kiss some want to kick you
There’s not a net you couldn’t slip through
Or at least that’s the impression I get cause you’re smooth and you’re wet
And she’s not aware yet but she’s yours

She’ll be sayin’ use me
Show me the jacuzzi
I imagine that it’s there on a plate
Your rendezvous rate means that you’ll never be frightened to make them wait for a while
I doubt it’s your style not to get what you set out to acquire
The eyes are on fire
You are the unforecasted storm

[Brian]
Calm, collected, and commandin’
(Top marks for not tryin’)
You made the other stories standin’
With your renditions and jokes
Bet there’s hundreds of blokes that have wept cause you’ve stolen their …thunder
Are you puttin’ us under

Cause we can’t take our eyes off the t-shirt and ties combination
Well see you later, innovator
