Leave me alone
I'm in control, I'm in control
And girls act too much and boys act too tough
Enough is enough

We're on the minds of other men I know she was
And take it or leave it
And take it or leave it
And take it or leave it
Oh just take it or leave it
And take it or leave it
Oh, take it

I say, he's going to let you down
He's going to let you down
He's going to let you down
And going to break your back for a chance
And going to steal your friends if he can
He's going to win someday

I fell off the track
Now I can't go back
I'm not like that
Boys act too much, girls act too tough
Enough is enough

Well on the minds of other girls I know he was
I said just take it or leave it
And take it or leave it
And take it or leave it
And take it or leave it
Oh just take it or leave it
And take it or leave it
Oh, take it

I say, he's going to let you down
He's going to let you down
He's going to let you down
And going to break your back for a chance
And going to steal your friends if he can
He's going to win someday
Oh he will

    General CommentI like the Arctic Monkeys, but Alex Turner is no Julian. The cover is decent, but obviously not nearly as good as the original.
