Fake Tales of San Francisco
Arctic Monkeys Lyrics


Fake tales of San Francisco
Echo through the room
More point to a wedding disco
Without a bride or groom
And there's a super cool band, yeah
With their trilbies and their glasses of white wine
And all the weekend rock stars are in the toilet
Practicing their lines

I don't want to hear you
(Kick me out, kick me out)
I don't want to hear you, no
(Kick me out, kick me out)
I don't want to hear you
(Kick me out, kick me out)
I don't want to hear you
I don't want to hear your

Fake tales of San Francisco
Echo through the air
And there's a few bored faces at the back
All wishing they weren't there

And as the microphone squeaks
A young girl's telephone beeps
Yeah, she's dashing for the exit
Oh, she's running to the streets outside
"Oh, you've saved me," she screams down the line
"The band were fucking wank
And I'm not having a nice time"

I don't want to hear you
(Kick me out, kick me out)
I don't want to hear you, no
(Kick me out, kick me out)

Yeah, but his bird said it's amazing, though
So all that's left
Is the proof that love's not only blind but deaf

He talks of San Francisco, he's from Hunter's Bar
I don't quite know the distance
But I'm sure that's far
Yeah I'm sure it's pretty far

And yeah, I'd love to tell you all my problem
You're not from New York City, you're from Rotherham
So get off the bandwagon, and put down the handbook
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

Get off the bandwagon and put down the handbook
Get off the bandwagon and put down the handbook
Get off the bandwagon and put down the handbook
Get off the bandwagon and put down the handbook

I really don't understand why everyone has a problem with AM. Yes, it doesn't sound like their first album did. But Alex Turner isn't 19 anymore, either. Bands develop as time goes along, and if anyone wants to tell me that their music taste is the exact same as it was ten years ago, I'm sorry to inform you that you are stuck in a rut.

Who tf has a problem with AM?

Andrey Kusanagi

people have a problem with AM? i love that album. it's right next to Whatever as my favorite Monkeys album.
in fact, it's Tranquility Base that i didn't like that much. i thought it was kinda boring.

Parramatta

Everything after fwn besides a few b sides from humbug is shite

@Lick My Musket Balls Yankee  i was simply putting down your inane comment that people and in addition bands dont change over time. I dont need evidence for the simple fact that of course you still like food and movies even with age. Most human being still like those things. Select genres and sounds of music from a single band, however, is way more specific than "food". Its not unstable to naturally change (its called being a human being). I bet your taste in music hasnt stayed the exact same over the years. Arctic Monkey's music evolved from album to album as they wanted to produce something different with every project of theirs. They weren't forced at all so i dont know where you are getting that from. Staying with the same sonic signature for all there albums may have actually been smarter to keep a fanbase but they made the decision to organically change. Framing it as though people arent supposed to change or its strange for people to change is absurd

Lick My Musket Balls Yankee

@Lexis Medina It's funny how you claim that but offer nothing to support it. For all we know you're entirely incorrect and so inept at arguing that you neglected to include the most basic form of supporting evidence. Although we only have an example of the latter.
