When the Sun Goes Down
Arctic Monkeys Lyrics


Said, 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
Avert your eyes and staring at the ground
She makes a subtle proposition
"I'm sorry, love, I'll have to turn you down"
And oh, he must be up to summat
What are the chances? Sure it's more than likely
I've got a feeling in my stomach
And start to wonder what his story might be
What his story might be, yeah

'Cause they said it changes when the sun goes down
Yeah, they said it changes when the sun goes down
And they said it changes when the sun goes down
Around here, around here, oh

And look here comes a Ford Mondeo
Isn't he Mister Inconspicuous?
And he don't have to say 'owt
She's in the stance ready to get picked up
Bet 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
And don't stop in the winter, no

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

Well, they said it changes when the sun goes down
Over the river, going out of town
And they said it changes when the sun goes down
Around here, around here, oh

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 nasty plan
I hope you're not involved at all

The intro is JUST GREAT. Here are some timestamps to perfectly illustrate the lyrics:
0:17 "She don't do major credit cards"
Him: Hi, can I pay with a visa?
She: (you can see her frown right before the scene is changed)
0:27 "Just give him half a chance"
Him: Begging
Her: Ok, ok, ok, fine!
0:29 "I bet he'll rob you if he can"
Him: "Oh, let me just take that, you're not eating it are you?"
Her face: SCUMBAG
0:34 "He's got a driving ban"
Him: (no comment needed. if you're not from the UK, you probably didn't see he's driving [driver sits on the right side])
0:44 "And he told Roxanne to put on her red light"
Him: Hey Roxanne, put on your red light.
0:49 "They're all infected"
She: (seems quite sick)
0:57 Alex: "I SAID HE'S A SCUMBAG DON'T YOU KNOW"
