Another great song of Arctic Monkeys that was available on YT only in unclear concert versions. Here comes much better one.

Enjoy - and check my other Arctic Monkeys videos!

I Bet You Look Good On The Dancefloor:


Still Take You Home:


Mardy Bum:


Red Light Indicates Doors Are Secured:



Up rolls a riot van
And sparks excitement in the boys
But the policemen look annoyed
Perhaps these are ones they should avoid

We got a chase last night
From men with truncheons, dressed in hats
We didn't do that much wrong, still ran away though
For the laugh, just for the laugh...

And please just stop talking
Cause they won't find us if you do
Oh those silly boys in blue
Well they won't catch me and you

"Have you been drinking son, you don't look old enough to me"
"I'm sorry officer, is there a certain age you're supposed to be? Cause nobody told me..."

And up rolls a riot van
And these lads just wind the coppers up
They ask why they don't catch proper crooks
They get their address and their names took
But they couldn't care less

Thrown in a riot van
All the coppers kicked him in
And there was no way he could win
Just had to take it on the chin...
