Listening to the Arctic Monkeys is like listening to poetry. With music. Musical poetry.

1. Do I Wanna Know?

Ever thought of calling when you've had a few?

'Cause I always do

2. One For The Road

There's no need to show me round baby,

I feel like I've been in here before

I've been wondering whether later when you tell everybody to go,

Will you pour me one for the road?

3. Mardy Bum

Well now then Mardy Bum

Oh I'm in trouble again, aren't I?

I thought as much

Cause you turned over there

Pulling that silent disappointment face

The one that I can't bear

4. I Wanna Be Yours

Let me be your 'leccy meter and I'll never run out

And let me be the portable heater that you'll get cold without

5. When The Sun Goes Down

And I've seen him with girls of the night

And he told Roxanne to put on her red light

6. Dancing Shoes

Get on your dancing shoes

You sexy little swine

Hoping they're looking for you

Sure you'll be rummaging through

7. 505

But I crumble completely when you cry,

It seems like once again you've had to greet me with goodbye,

8. Cornerstone

Tell me where's your hiding place

I'm worried I'll forget your face

And I've asked everyone

And I'm beginning to think I imagined you all along

9. Why'd You Only Call Me When You're High?

Incapable of making alright decisions

And having bad ideas

10. Don't Sit Down 'Cause I've Moved Your Chair

Go into business with a grizzly bear

But just don't sit down 'cause I've moved your chair
