Scummy
by Arctic Monkeys

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

Nathan Bennison

This is Scummy, which was the demo of When The Sun Goes Down. You can tell by the beginning. 

Nathan Bennison

BTS ARCTIC MONKEYS That's in the album version which is called 'When the sun goes down'

shereen sultani

Nathan Bennison No in scummy he says over the river going out of town

Jelly Pinkbelly

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

Gustavo Alves

This version chorus is so good,but the album riffs are better

Seb Morreale

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

TordenFlaesk

I <3 LizzieTheSuperStar95 for uploading this version. Kisses from Denmark!

TheAstronomyFloyd

The only differences are the guitar when the drums kick in, the way the chorus is sung and the last verse which repeats "They Said he Changes When the Sun Goes Down" instead of the albums verse "Over the River Going Out of Town".
