Scummy
Arctic Monkeys Lyrics


So who's that girl there?
I wonder what went wrong
So that she had to roam the streets
She don't do major credit cards
I doubt she does receipts
It's all not quite legitimate

And what a scummy man
Just give him half a chance
I bet he'll rob you if he can
Can see it in his eyes, yeah
That he's got a driving ban
Amongst some other offences

And I've seen him with girls of the night
And he told Roxanne to put on her red light
They're all infected but he'll be alright
Cause he's a scumbag, don't you know
I said he's a scumbag, don't you know!

Although you're trying not to listen
I bet your eyes are staring at the ground
She makes a subtle proposition
Sorry love I'll have to turn you down

And oh he must be up to something
Want half a chance to show he's more than likely
I've got a feeling in my stomach
I start to wonder what his story might be
What his story might be

They said it changes when the sun goes down
And they said it changes when the sun goes down
And they said it changes when the sun goes down
Around here
Around

And look here comes a Ford Mondeo
Isn't he Mister Inconspicuous
And he don't have to say 'owt
She understands she's here to get picked up

And she's delighted when she sees him
Pulling in and giving her the eye
Because she must be fucking freezing
Scantily clad beneath the clear night sky
She don't stop in the winter, no and...

They said it changes when the sun goes down
And they said it changes when the sun goes down
And they said it changes when the sun goes down
Around here

They said it changes when the sun goes down
And they said it changes when the sun goes down
And they said it changes when the sun goes down
Around here
Around here

What a scummy man
Just give him half a chance
I bet he'll rob you if he can
Can see it in his eyes that he's got a nasty plan
I hope you're not involved at all

I prefer this to the album version; this sounds much more raw

Seb Morreale

YES this is the best version. So much better than the actual release

Jelly Pinkbelly

The differences are in the instruments only, right?Most noticable on the drums.

Matt Anderson

I remember my mate who introduced me to them stopped listening to them after they changed the name of this song lol

The Trump

why? Scummy is so much worse than 'when the sun goes down'

artec0

Brilliant - both riff and lyrics.

Jesper van Wieringen

There are more differences than only the instruments, they're small but they're there. In this one he ends with: Over the river going out of town, where in scummy he sticks with they said he changes when the sun goes down. And the sheffield accent is stronger in Scummy than it is in the album version When the sun goes down. So the person who uploaded this is indeed right, this is the demo version. Liston to the album version and you'll see I'm right.

Jesper van Wieringen I also noticed that in this version, Alex pronounces ford mondeo as more accurately, in the album version he pronounces it as “Ford monteo”
