Creepin Up The Backstairs
The Fratellis Lyrics


She said "I'm Rosy"
I said "I thought you were Lucy"
She said "no Rosy, I told you so!"
Was here with your sister
But she's going out the back
I wanna dance and have fun y'know
Of all the shitty little places
I meet you it's here and I'm freaking out
I heard you got a brand new name
Selling E's in the dark
But hey it's nothing to shout about

Don't just say yes to tease me
Do your utmost to please me
I don't mean to be sleazy
Being you can't be easy

When you're creeping up the backstairs
Mother's nightmares
Falling in the front door - my, my
Climbing in the window
Get dressed, let's go
Take your brother's car keys - bye bye

See your yellow fingers
And your crucifix bones
All covered in cellophane
Was there when your best friend said
"Sweetheart, I'm just here to get drunk again"
I wouldn't move if I was you, wouldn't want to get caught
When the lights go out she said
"You think you're so special," I said
"Sunshine I'm just bored I'm just checkin' out."

Don't just say yes to tease me
Do your utmost to please me
I don't mean to be sleazy
Being you can't be easy

When you're creeping up the backstairs
Mother's nightmares
Falling in the front door my my
Climbing in your window
Get dressed, let's go
Take your brother's car keys
Bye bye

Don't just say yes to tease me
Do your utmost to please me
I don't mean to be sleazy
Being you can't be easy

When you're creeping up the backstairs
Mother's nightmares
Falling in the front door my my
Climbing in the window
Get dressed let's go
Take your brother's car key
Bye bye

Creeping up the backstairs
Mother's nightmares
Falling in the front door my my
Climbing in the window
Get dressed let's go
Take your brother's car key
Bye bye

Climbing in the window
Get dressed, let's go
Take your brother's car keys
Bye bye

Well I see your yellow fingers
And your crucifix bones
All covered in cellophane
Was there when your best friend said
"Sweetheart, I'm just here to get drunk again"
I wouldn't move if I was you
I wouldn't wanna caught when the lights go out

When you're creepin' up the backstairs
Mother's nightmares
Falling in the front door
My my
Climbing in the window
Get dressed let's go
Take your brother's car keys
Bye bye

I legit just found out about this band in the past month. Man, these people are going so unnoticed.

behindtheballad weird to think how when you wrote this it was ‘this week’ to you but now to me it was 4 years ago

A.CARDtv - Music & Remixes

It does and I agree with ya. I first heard them when their song was on the 2006 iPod commercial with "Flathead". After that I didn't
bother looking them up until 2007's Hot Fuzz featured 2 of their songs off the second album? All of their albums are true to their sound from the first album. Same with Blue October. @Michael Parrone

lanale tremone

I think they're on tour right now actually

TheRobstargames

@Sully Dunn what happend in his life?

Sully Dunn

+Michael Parrone I think some personal shit went down and the life of Jon changed a bunch which changed his songwriting. There were only 2 years between the 2 albums. I think he would be surprised at the amount of random bullshit musicians Costello Music inspired.
