When The Sun Goes Down lyrics

So who's that girl there?
I wonder what went wrong
So that she had to roam the streets
She don't do major credit cards
I doubt she does receipts
It's all not quite legitimate

And what a scummy man
Just give him half a chance
I'll bet he'll rob you if he can
Can see it in his eyes
Yeah that he's got a driving ban
Amongst some other offenses

And I've seen him with girls of the night
And he told Roxanne to put on her red light
They're all infected but he'll be alright
'Cause he's a scumbag, don't you know
I said he's a scumbag, don't you know!

Although you're trying not to listen
Avert your eyes and staring at the ground
She makes a subtle proposition
‽I'm sorry love I'll have to turn you down”

He must be up to something
What are the chances? Sure it's more than likely
I've got a feeling in my stomach
I start to wonder what his story might be
What his story might be

They said it changes when the sun goes down
They said it changes when the sun goes down
They said it changes when the sun goes down
Around here, around here

Look here comes a Ford Mondeo
Isn't he Mister Inconspicuous?
And he don't even have to say 'owt
She's in the stance ready to get picked up

Bet she's delighted when she sees him
Pulling in and giving her the eye
Because she must be fucking freezing
Scantily clad beneath the clear night sky
It doesn't stop in the winter, no

They said it changes when the sun goes down
They said it changes when the sun goes down
They said it changes when the sun goes down
Around here

They said it changes when the sun goes down
Over the river going out of town
They said it changes when the sun goes down
Around here, around here

And what a scummy man
Just give him half a chance
I bet he'll rob you if he can
Can see it in his eyes yeah that he's got a nasty plan
I hope you're not involved at all

    "he told roxanne to put on the red light" is connected to the police's song 'Roxanne'. You should listen to it, it's a classic.

    Arctic monkeys write good songs theyre just no good at playing em some of the guitar n bass work on this album is absolutely shocking theres no way they wrote all the music on this. but its a kickass song which is the most important part

    N they didn't come from nothing they were picked up because they were in the charts with only 3 gigs experience

  • Emily 0 points

    rookie you are so right!!!!

  • rookie 0 points

    yeah Arctic Monkeys kick arse. They have come from nothing and made something of themselves. People find it hard to appreciate the origin of their music, not just the tune. The lyrics mean something, whether it be pointless or from past expierience. Thats what a real fan does, they appreciate where it comes from, as well as the tune and the lyrics. Asd each band member is an individual in their own right, and songs arent based on looks.

    They've got quite a few of the lyrics wrong (eg "she understands" etc isn't right too), I submitted a bunch of corrections on Friday - how long does it take to get them sorted out?

  • Monkeyfan 0 points

    They got the lyrics wrong, it's not "I bet your eyes are staring at the ground", it's "AVERT your eyes and staring at the ground"

    Haha I am normally very positive about all kinds of music, as it takes a lto of effort and skill to write evne an average song.
    However, this is truly appalling. I would use many other words to describe it, except I'm not sure which ones are allowed on this site. What really made me laugh was the DJ BRAP remix of this sopng.

  • Julian 0 points

    The bad thing is: It's a little bit too short. Every time I see it on MTV and I'm getting in the mood the song already comes to it's end...
    That's perhaps because of the chorus starting so late, and that is when you think 'oh, this rocks', and then theres just a few lines, chorus again and finish
