  • He knew what he wanted to say
    But he did not want to word it
    The dirty little Herbert
    Was thinking an escape
    But the place was well guarded
    The guiltiness that started
    Soon as the other part had stopped

    D is for delightful
    And try and keep your trousers on
    I think you should know you're his favorite worst nightmare

    D is for desperately trying to simulate what it was that was all right
    Three quarters of an hour ago
    That led him to be in a position
    And every copper mission
    On every other episode

    He's nearing the brink, but he thinks first
    The parallel universe perhaps could be the perfect scene
    He's nearing the brink, but he thinks first
    The parallel universe perhaps could be the perfect scene
    He's nearing the brink, but he thinks first
    The parallel universe perhaps could be the perfect scene
    He's nearing the brink, but he thinks first
    The parallel
    I think you should know you're his favorite worst nightmare

    D is for delightful
    And try and keep your trousers on

    You should know you're his favorite worst nightmare Writer/s: Alex Turner
