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 bl**dy mary’s lacking in tabasco
remember when he 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 s*x tips
remember when the boys were all electric?
now when she tells she’s gonna get it
i’m guessing that she’d rather just forget it
clinging to not getting sentimental
said she wasn’t going, but she went still
likes her gentlemen not to be gentle
was it a meccadobber 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 flo

where did you go?
where did you go?
where did you go?
oh, oh

falling about
you took a left off last laugh lane
you were just soundin’ it out
you’re not coming back again

falling about
you took a left off last laugh lane
you were just soundin’ it out
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 bl**dy mary’s lacking in tabasco
(and you’re not coming back again)
remember when you used to be a rascal?
