Teddy picker lyrics Alex Turner

They’ve sped up to the point where they provoke
The punchline before they have told the joke
Plenty desperation to be seen
Staring at the television screen
They’ve sped up to the point where they provoke
You to tell the fucking punchline before you have told the joke
Well sorry, sunshine, it doesn’t exist
It wasn’t in the Top 100 list
And it’s the thousandth time that’s it’s even bolder
Don’t be surprised when you get bent over
They told ya, but you were dying for it
She saw it, and she grabbed it, and it wasn’t what it seemed
The kids all dream of making it, whatever that means
Another variation on a theme
A tangle on the television and the magazine
Do you reckon that they do it for a joke?
Do you reckon that they make ’em take an oath
That says that we are defenders
Of any poseur or professional pretender around
When did your list replace the twist and turn
Like a fist replaced the kiss?
Don’t concern us with your bollocks, I don’t want your prayer
Save it for the morning after
And it’s the thousandth time that’s it’s even bolder
Don’t be surprised when you get bent over
They told ya, but you were dying for it
Let’s have a game on the teddy picker
Not quick enough, can I have it quicker?
Already thick and you’re getting thicker
Let’s have a game on the teddy picker
Not quick enough, can I have it quicker?
Already thick and you’re getting thicker
Presuming that all things are equal
Who’d want to be men of the people
When there’s people like you?
