"Cigarette Smoker Fiona" as written by and Alex Turner....
Sat at the side of the pool at one of your houses
With wet white trousers on
And worlds collide as the evening continues, the dignity fucks off
Her brother's gone off to the strippers to make up for all the lost time
She could have been one of the bitches but she's actually alright

Cigarette smoker, I'm sorry
But we're all unsure how much you've had
But we think that you outta maybe not have anymore

A country home, even if we really tried
Would it cease to surprise us now
And I bet your dad would like to give us all a slap
When are your parents back d'ya know?

Well, I never came from no ghetto
But it wasn't nowhere near here
Well, spoken girls and stilettos
Aren't something to fear

Cigarette smoker, I'm sorry
But we're all unsure how much you've had
But we think that you outta maybe not have anymore

Cigarette smoker, I'm sorry
But we're all unsure how much you've had
But we think that you outta maybe not have anymore

Cigarette smoker, cigarette smoke doesn't hide
As well as you think
And you think that it outta act as the perfect disguise

    My InterpretationMost of the song is pretty self explanatory, clearly about a rich posh girl having a party while her parents are away and she's clearly losing it a bit, but I think the one thing I'd definitely say is that I really believe the "cigarette smoker" is sarcastic and that she's not just smoking tobacco but weed which ties in well with the ending all about the disguise not working. I think it may have been some dodgey stuff or it has just not gone down well with her due to her usually proper sounding environment and that's why she's losing it and that's what he's referring to when he says "how much you've had" etc in the chorus as there is no mention of her drinking throughout the song and that's why there's such strong emphasis on the fact she's smoking.

    General Commentwell not as good as the demo, but still a decent version. these lyrics are possibly more understandable than the other ones and i prefer the chorus, i like how it's like one long sentence split up in different lines... if that makes sense. No needfor the fiona bit tho me thinks, the title just sound stupid now.
    best verse = Well I never came from no ghetto
    But it wasn't nowhere near here
    Well-spoken girls in stilletoes
    Aren't something to fear

    Being a northener myself i can relate to the whole north south devide.

    General CommentNot as good as Cigarette Smoke, but this aint bad either.
    Tho i don't like the title, the 'Fiona' makes it weird somehow.

    General CommentSounds like they've been invited to a rich girl's party while her family are away and she's had far too much to drink and the party is getting out of control.

    General CommentHer brother's gone off to the strippers
    To make up for all the lost time
    She could have been one of the bitches
    But she's actually alright

    -Her brother didnt enjoy the party. it was a waste of time. went to the strippers which he was probably going to go to before he knew about the party.

    -She was rich and that so easily couldve been a posh stuck up bitch. But wasnt.

    General CommentAmazing song, lyrics are great, the way he puts into words a whole point of view about rich families and girls specificly, and those partys where high society sort of "looses it".

    I imagine the guys from the band laughing and joking around in that context.

    The way he pronounces the words in this song and the rithm the lyrics have are amazing things to pay atention to also.
