Fluorescent Adolescent
Arctic Monkeys Lyrics


You used to get it in your fishnets
Now you only get it in your night dress
Discarded all the naughty nights for niceness
Landed in a very common crisis
Everything's in order in a black hole
Nothing seems as pretty as the past though
That Bloody Mary's lacking in Tabasco
Remember when he used to be a rascal?

Oh, the boy's a slag
The best you ever had
The best you ever had
Is just a memory and those dreams
Weren't as daft as they seem
Not as daft as they seemed
My love, when you dream them up

Flicking through a little book of sex tips
Remember when the boys were all electric?
Now, when she tells she's gonna get it
I'm guessing that she'd rather just forget it
Clinging to not getting sentimental
Said, she wasn't going, but she went, still
Likes her gentlemen to not be gentle
Was it a Mecca Dauber or a betting pencil?

Oh, the boy's a slag
The best you ever had
The best you ever had
Is just a memory and those dreams
Weren't as daft as they seem
Not as daft as they seemed
My love, when you dream them up
Oh, Flo, where did you go?
Where did you go?
Where did you go? Oh oh

You're falling about
You took a left off Last Laugh Lane
Just soundin' it out
But you're not coming back again

You're falling about
You took a left off Last Laugh Lane
You were just soundin' it out
But you're not coming back again

You used to get it in your fishnets (falling about)
Now you only get it in your night dress
Discarded all the naughty nights for niceness (you took a left off Last Laugh Lane)
Landed in a very common crisis
Everything's in order in a black hole (were sounding it out)
Is everything as pretty as the past though?
That Bloody Mary's lacking in Tabasco (you're not coming back again)
Remember when he used to be a rascal? Oh

You used to get it in your fishnets
Now you only get it in your night dress
Discarded all the naughty nights for niceness
Landed in a very common crisis
Everything's in order in a black hole
Nothing seems as pretty as the past, though
That Bloody Mary's lacking a Tabasco
Remember when you used to be a rascal?

Oh, that boy's a slag
The best you ever had
The best you ever had
Is just a memory and those dreams
Weren't as daft as they seemed
Not as daft as they seemed
My love, when you dreamed them up

Flicking through a little book of sex tips
Remember when the boys were all electric?
Now when she tells she's gonna get it
I'm guessing that she'd rather just forget it
Clinging to not getting sentimental
Said she wasn't going but she went still
Likes her gentlemen to not be gentle
Was it a megadobber or a betting pencil?

Oh, that boy's a slag
The best you ever had
The best you ever had
Is just a memory and those dreams
But as daft as they seem
As daft as they seem
My love, when you dreamed them up

Oh, flo
Where did you go?
Where did you go?
Where did you go? Oh

Falling about
You took a left off Last Laugh Lane
Just sounding it out
But you're not coming back again

You’re falling about
You took a left off Last Laugh Lane
You were just sounding it out
But you're not coming back again

You used to get it in your fishnets
Now you only get it in your night dress (falling about)
Discarded all the naughty nights for niceness (you took a left off Last Laugh Lane)
Landed in a very common crisis
Everything's in order in a black hole
Is anything as pretty as the past though (you were just sounding it out)
That Bloody Mary's lacking in Tabasco (you're not coming back again)
Remember when you used to be a rascal? Oh

The LYRICS

You used to get it in your fishnets
Now you only get it in your night dress
Discarded all the naughty nights for niceness
Landed in a very common crisis
Everything's in order in a black hole
Nothing seems as pretty as the past though
That Bloody Mary's lacking in Tabasco
Remember when he used to be a rascal?
Oh, the boy's a slag
The best you ever had
The best you ever had
Is just a memory and those dreams
Weren't as daft as they seem
Not as daft as they seemed
My love, when you dream them up
Flicking through a little book of sex tips
Remember when the boys were all electric?
Now, when she tells she's gonna get it
I'm guessing that she'd rather just forget it
Clinging to not getting sentimental
Said, she wasn't going, but she went, still
Likes her gentlemen to not be gentle
Was it a Mecca Dauber or a betting pencil?
Oh, the boy's a slag
The best you ever had
The best you ever had
Is just a memory and those dreams
Weren't as daft as they seem
Not as daft as they seemed
My love, when you dream them up
Oh, Flo, where did you go?
Where did you go?
Where did you go? Oh oh
You're falling about
You took a left off Last Laugh Lane
Just soundin' it out
But you're not coming back again
You're falling about
You took a left off Last Laugh Lane
You were just soundin' it out
But you're not coming back again
You used to get it in your fishnets (falling about)
Now you only get it in your night dress
Discarded all the naughty nights for niceness (you took a left off Last Laugh Lane)
Landed in a very common crisis
Everything's in order in a black hole (were sounding it out)
Is everything as pretty as the past though?
That Bloody Mary's lacking in Tabasco (you're not coming back again)
Remember when he used to be a rascal? Oh

My interpretation: This song is clearly about the changes that you go through as you go grow up. The clowns represent childish things like your imagination, creativity, childishness etc. The men in suits represent things you have to accept as an adult. Such as responsibility, work, seriousness etc. And as your growing up, these things conflict with each other, and eventually there is only one left. This video is also extremely sad, one of the saddest I've seen. The clown is personified and is losing his best and only friend cause the friend is growing up and leaving the clown. Hence the clown is singing the lyrics "Where did you go". That's the story of the music video, not the lyrics.

I vaguely remember the band copping shit for their first video clip (bet you look good on the dance floor) which was just them standing on a stage performing the song so they dropped this video clip as a f you to the critics and the video clip is not related to the song at all - just threw it together to shut everyone up
