"Nag Nag Nag Nag" as written by and Christopher William Hammans Ward Ian Stuart Wilson....
Wet trousers in the washing machine,
But I'd rather be damp than seen in jeans.

I'm grown up now but refuse to learn
That those were just adolescent concerns.
I'm possibly missing something
Someone should have told me.
A record collection reduced to a mixed tape,
Headphones on I made my escape.
I'm in a film of personal soundtrack.
I'm leaving home and I'm never got a come back.

I'm learning lyrics from the CD inlay
To impress people with the stupid things I say.

I'm grown up now but refuse to learn
That those were just adolescent concerns.
I'm possibly missing something
Someone should have told me.
A record collection reduced to a mixed tape,
Headphones on I made my escape.
I'm in a film of personal soundtrack.
I'm leaving home and I'm never got a come back.

I used to have a bedroom to hide in,
But now I'm outside deciding.
Older but wiser,
This song's the decider.
Is it the sound of a man wrestling with emotion,
Or the sound of him losing
And causing commotion?
I'm nothing to my peers,
But envy and hatred.
How many girls have they seen naked?

I'm grown up now but refuse to learn
That those were just adolescent concerns.
I'm possibly missing something
Someone should have told me.
A record collection reduced to a mixed tape,
Headphones on I made my escape.
I'm in a film of personal soundtrack.
I'm leaving home and I'm never got a come back.

    General CommentAm I really the first person to comment on this amazing song by the best band in the world. This song is just utterly fantastic and witty like all their others. I was at the gig in brighton the friday before they released this, lying about our age to get in almost like in an art brut song. If you've not seen them live you're missing out.

    ART BRUT TOP OF THE POPS!!

    General CommentI like the new way of Art Brut. The lyrics are still "funny" but they are way better and the new album is great. I didn't really like the first album (despite some Songs were fine) but I knew this band could do a good 2nd album.

    And yes, it rocks. Nag*4 is the best song they ever did and "Jealous Guy" is pure class, too.

    .. I'm leavin home and I'm never gonna come back ..
