Bang Bang You're Dead
Dirty Pretty Things Lyrics


I knew all along
That I was right at the start
About the seeds of the weeds
That grew in your heart

Self satisfaction for the factions
Who formed to tear us apart
Oh I gave you the Midas touch
As you turned round to scratch out my heart

Oh what did you expect?
Oh tell me what did you expect?
To lay it on my head?
So is it all upon my head?

Bang bang you're dead!
Oh I'm so easily lead
Bang, bang, you're de-e-ead!
Put all those rumours to bed
Bang, bang you're dead

I knew all along
But I was loathed to believe
There was nothing but spite
Fury and lies in the words that you weave

Bring our illusion to a conclusion
With all our unsold dreams
Put it to bed, kick it in the head
Oh won't they just let it be

Bang bang you're dead!
Oh I'm so easily lead
Bang, bang, you're de-e-ead!
Put all those rumours to bed
Bang, bang you're dead

Bang bang bang bang you're dead

@taliwakka27 I didnt say they weren't wrong, I'm just saying that it wasnt the OP who transcribed those lyrics.

taliwakka27

@Andy Fulton well he definitely say tawdry anyway. There's quite a lot of errors in the OPs post actually..

Andy Fulton

@taliwakka27 just checked there. It's definitely on Google lyrics when you look up the song.

taliwakka27

@Andy Fulton guitar tabs maybe?

Andy Fulton

@taliwakka27 those lyrics were taken off Google I think, I swear I've seen them elsewhere before.

I miss Dirty Pretty Things. I adore The Libertines and Carl's new band The Jackals, but I always had a soft spot for Dirty Pretty Things. Both their albums were great. I'm just glad Carl is still making brilliant music with the Libertines again and the Jackals. It would be a shame to never hear any DPT songs performed live anymore though, or does Carl still perform any of them, anyone know?

Voige

The jackals are actually Carl’s first band

That's great to know! I really hope to see the Jackals some time. Their album is great. I adore Carl! :)
