The View from the Afternoon
Arctic Monkeys Lyrics


Anticipation has a habit to set you up
For disappointment in evening entertainment but
Tonight there'll be some love
Tonight there'll be a ruckus, yeah, regardless of what's gone before
I want to see all of the things that we've already seen
The lairy girls hung out the window of the limousine
Of course it's fancy dress
And they're all looking quite forlorn in bunny ears and devil horns and how

Anticipation has a habit to set you up
For disappointment in evening entertainment but
Tonight there'll be some love
Tonight there'll be a ruckus, yeah, regardless of what's gone before
I want to see all of the things that we've already seen

I wanna see you take the jackpot out the fruit machine
And put it all back in
You've got to understand that you can never beat the bandit, no

And she won't be surprised and she won't be shocked
When she's pressed the star after she's pressed unlock
And there's verse and chapter sat in her inbox
And all that is said is that you've drank a lot

And you should bear that in mind tonight
Bear that in mind, yeah
You should bear that in mind tonight
Bear that in mind

And you can pour your heart out
For a reason it would block
Oh, you send her after nine o'clock

Anticipation has a habit to set you up
For disappointment in evening entertainment but
Tonight there'll be some love
Tonight there'll be a ruckus, yeah, regardless of what's gone before

And she won't be surprised and she won't be shocked
When she's pressed the star after she's pressed unlock
And there's verse and chapter sat in her inbox
And all that is said is that you've drank a lot

And you should bear that in mind tonight
Bear that in mind, yeah
You should bear that in mind tonight
Bear that in mind

And you can pour your heart out
Around three o'clock
When the two-for-ones have done the writer's block

Anticipation has the habit to set you up
For disappointment in evening entertainment but
Tonight there'll be some love
Tonight there'll be a rawkus, regardless
Of what's gone before
I want to see all of the things that we've already seen
The lairy girls hung out the window of the limousine
And of course its fancy dress
And they're all looking quite full on
In bunny ears and devil horns

I want to see all of the things that we've already seen
I want to see you take the jackpot out the fruit machine
And put it all back in
You've got to understand it you can never beat the bandit

And she won't be surprised and she won't be shocked
When she's pressed the star after she's pressed unlock
And there's verse and chapter sat in her inbox
And all that it says is that you've drank a lot
You should bear that in mind tonight
You can pour your heart out but her reasoning will block
owt you send her after nine o clock

You can pour your heart out around 3 o clock
When the 2 for 1's undone the writers block

“Anticipation has the habit to set you up for disappointment”. What a way to start off a debut album

Kado Mono

Technically it's not their debut since they released under their own label but commercial canon following yes you're right

Omar Rosas

Legendary asf

m!

they really are amazing

Reevo Navarro

ironically, this album doesn't disappoint

Hyacinth Tagupa

Great observation. The whole first verse is basically 'Welcome to Arctic Monkeys.'

Matt Helders drumming his fucking ass off. The video shoulda showed him doing it instead of a model. Still effective tho. Best drummers track in years.

GR33N LANE

@Paul Hodgetts No worries at all, easy mistake to make my mate.

Paul Hodgetts

@GR33N LANE sorry, I'm wrong...... Again, this Google bollocks is proving me a liar...... Or a fool😜

GR33N LANE

@Paul Hodgetts yo matt helders, the drummer has been with the Arctics from the start. Andy Nicholson played bass on the first album and was subsequently replaced by nick omalley. Think that's who you were thinking of bud.
