We've picked some of the greatest examples of Alex Turner's wordsmithery.
"We'll stick to the guns / Don't care if it's marketing suicidal / Won't crack or compromise."
"So have you got the guts? / Been wondering if your heart's still open and if so I wanna know what time it shuts."
"Over there there's broken bones / There's only music so that there's new ringtones."
"The boy’s a slag / the best you ever had."
"You’re rarer then a can of Dandelion & Burdock."
"All that’s left is the truth that love’s not only blind but deaf."
"With folded arms you occupied the bench like toothache / Stood and puffed your chest out like you'd never lost a war."
"How can you wake up, with someone you don’t love / And not feel slightly fazed by it?"
"it's the fame that put words in her mouth, / She couldn't help, but spit them out. / Innocence and arrogance entwined / In the filthiest of minds."
"The horizon tries but it's just not as kind on the eyes / As Arabella."
"There's a circle of witches, ambitiously vicious they are / Our attempts to remind them of reason won't get us that far / I don't know what it is that they want / But I haven't got it to give."
"I let him go the long way round / I smelt your scent on the seatbelt / And kept my short-cuts to myself."
"Didn't you see she were gorgeous, she was beyond belief / But this lad at the side drinking his Smirnoff ice / Came and paid for her Tropical Reef."
"I'm not the kind of fool who's going to sit and sing to you / About stars, girl."
"Now then Mardy Bum / I've seen your frown / And it's like looking down the barrel of a gun / And it goes off."
