Watch me... watch me go
Well I'm struttin' up ever so slow
And now sting me... get in the groove
Cause they're bangin' on the door
Yes they're hard and they'll make a move

We're wakin' up those sleepers
You know we're so mischievous
Just what you'll do to keep us entertained
We're wakin' up those sleepers
You know we're so mischievous
Just what you'll do to keep us entertained

(Knock, run)
She's got you up and she's run, run, runnin' away
(Knock, run)
You're knockin' first if you think that you're comin' to play

And I don't mind
Cause all the time you're talkin' at me
No I don't mind at all

Oh well cap-guns and polystyrene planes
Well I'm buyin' penny bubblies with my change
Cause sting me... get in the groove
Cause they're bangin' on the door
Yes they're hard and they'll make a move

We're wakin' up those sleepers
You know we're so mischievous
Just what you'll do to keep us entertained
Oh well now she says she's goin'
That she's got the towel to throw in
Was just about to blow him and run away!

(Knock, run)
She's got you up and she's run, run, runnin' away
(Knock, run)
You're knockin' first if you think that you're comin' to play

And I don't mind
Cause all the time you're talkin' at me
Well I don't mind at all... no

    General CommentI think you're the moron!
    AM aren't about deep lyrics, I will give you that.
    They sing about what they know. If they didn't, you'd accuse them of trying to be something they're not!
    Forget Mike Skinner, AM are the sound of the streets.
    If you don't like them, fine. Just don't take the piss out of the people who do. Each to their own mate.

    General CommentUm I kinda think lukefan was taking the piss...

    But back to the song.
    I love it because knockrunning is pretty much the most amusing thing ever. Call me childish if you want.
    Also I love the bluesy type feel to it. The instrumentals are awesome.
    KNOCK!
    RUN!

    General CommentLukefun you are a complete Moron, Why the hell spend your time posting on the Arctic Monkeys lyrics if you dont like them, Post on a band you enjoy, possibly a band who maybee talkin Deep but dont no wat the FUCK the'yre on about! At least the Monkeys sing from the heart, And somet, believe it or not, a lot of people can relate to.
