Get out the way, mister
With your short sharp tips
No, I won't read your lips right now
And baby, hey
You send a shiver down my spine
But do you read my mind
Do you...
And you're looking pretty suspicious
And probably planning a heist
He's wanting to go to the strippers
It makes him feel all nice

(Cigarette smoke yeah)
The cigarette smoke in your eyes
Watching a stripper and
(Smacking a bloke yeah)
Smacking a bloke here tonight

Get out the way, mister
With your short sharp tips
No, I won't read your lips right now
And baby, hey
You send a shiver down my spine
But do you read my mind
Do you...

He's prob'ly got stopped by a panda
For speeding on his way there
... flashing of digital cameras
From tourists in trafalgar square

(Cigarette smoke yeah)
The cigarette smoke in your eyes
Watching a stripper and
(Snortin' some coke yeah)
Snortin' some coke off her thighs
Bla-bla-bla-bla-bla-bla...

(Cigarette smoke yeah)
The cigarette smoke in your eyes
Watching a stripper and
(Smacking a bloke yeah)
Smacking a bloke here tonight
And I just can't see for the
(Cigarette smoke yeah)
The cigarette smoke in your eyes
Watching a stripper and
(Snortin' some coke yeah)
Snortin' some coke off her thighs
Lalalalalala laaaaaaaoooo
Oww

    General Commenti agree with LyricalLove- it realli is one of their best songs and they get no recognition for it. definetly one of my favourites- up their with You Probably Couldn't See Me For The Lights But You Were Staring Straight At Me. i dunno why but every time i hear it this image of pete doherty comes to mind

    General CommentI love that Smacking a bloke part. Its great, it really is.

    I love this band. One downside is i never get to see them play. They never play in america at all. I wish i lived out there.
