Teddy Picker
by Arctic Monkeys

They've sped up to the point where they provoke
The punchline before they have told the joke
Plenty desperation to be seen
Staring at the television screen
They've sped up to the point where they provoke
You to tell the fucking punchline before you have told the joke
Well sorry, sunshine, it doesn't exist
It wasn't in the Top 100 list

And it's the thousandth time that's it's even bolder
Don't be surprised when you get bent over
They told ya, but you were dying for it

She saw it, and she grabbed it, and it wasn't what it seemed
The kids all dream of making it, whatever that means
Another variation on a theme
A tangle on the television and the magazine
Do you reckon that they do it for a joke?
Do you reckon that they make 'em take an oath
That says that we are defenders
Of any poseur or professional pretender around

When did your list replace the twist and turn
Like a fist replaced the kiss?
Don't concern us with your bollocks, I don't want your prayer
Save it for the morning after

And it's the thousandth time that's it's even bolder
Don't be surprised when you get bent over
They told ya, but you were dying for it

Let's have a game on the teddy picker
Not quick enough, can I have it quicker?
Already thick and you're getting thicker
Let's have a game on the teddy picker
Not quick enough, can I have it quicker?
Already thick and you're getting thicker

Presuming that all things are equal
Who'd want to be men of the people
When there's people like you?

My vocal coach once told me that accents don’t show up while singing and all i could think was this song

Noah McGaffey

The example of a west coast accent I know is the first two lines of jeff buckley's the sky is a landfill, I'm living here and no one sounds that west coast here

aren’t you?

123 G Singing makes your voice neutral, which tends to make it sound American, as the generic American accent is very neutral. Alex Turner sounds more neutral now since he sings more then he did in his earlier works, like Teddy Picker.

Totally agree his voice screams Sheffield

123 G

No accent while singing? That's the most peculiar thing I've heard in a long time.

David Harvey

Inge Oortwijn

I mean he’s also aged more than 10 years. Did you expect him to look the same? :’D

Megh Daniel Lama
