"Fluorescent Adolescent" Lyrics

Arctic Monkeys

You used to get it in your fishnets
Now you only get it in your night dress
Discarded all the naughty nights for niceness
Landed in a very common crisis
Everything's in order in a black hole
Nothing seems as pretty as the past though
That Bloody Mary's lacking her Tabasco
Remember when you used to be a rascal?

Oh the boy's a slag
The best you ever had
The best you ever had
Is just a memory and those dreams
Weren't as daft as they seem
Not as daft as they seem
My love when you dream them up

Flicking through a little book of sex tips
Remember when the boys were all electric?
And now when she's told she's gonna get it
I'm guessing that she'd rather just forget it
Clinging to not gettin' sentimental
Said she wasn't going but she went still
Likes a gentleman to be gentle
Was it a Mecca dobber or a betting pencil?

Oh the boy's a slag
The best you ever had
The best you ever had
Is just a memory and those dreams
Weren't as daft as they seem
Not as daft as they seem
My love when you dream them up
Oh, where did you go?
Where did you go?
Where did you go?
Woah.

Falling about
You took a left off last laugh lane
Just sounding it out
But you're not coming back again.

You're falling about
You took a left off last laugh Lane
You were just sounding it out
But you're not coming back again.

You used to get it in your fishnets
(Falling about)
Now you only get it in your night dress
Discarded all the naughty nights for niceness
(You took a left off last laugh lane)
Landed in a very common crisis
Everything's in order in a black hole
(You just sounded it out)
Nothing seems as pretty as the past though
That Bloody Mary's lacking her Tabasco
(You're not coming back again.)
Remember when you used to be a rascal?
