  • Stop making the eyes at me
    I'll stop making the eyes at you
    What it is that surprises me
    Is that I don't really want you to

    And your shoulders are frozen (cold as the night)
    Oh, but you're an explosion (you're dynamite)
    Your name isn't Rio, but I don't care for sand
    And lighting the fuse might result in a bang, b-b-bang-oh

    I bet that you look good on the dance floor
    I don't know if you're looking for romance or
    I don't know what you're looking for
    I said, I bet that you look good on the dance floor
    Dancing to electro-pop like a robot from 1984
    Well, from 1984

    I wish you'd stop ignoring me
    Because you're sending me to despair
    Without a sound, yeah, you're calling me
    And I don't think it's very fair

    That your shoulders are frozen (cold as the night)
    Oh, but you're an explosion (you're dynamite)
    Your name isn't Rio, but I don't care for sand
    And lighting the fuse might result in a bang, b-b-bang-oh

    I bet that you look good on the dance floor
    I don't know if you're looking for romance or
    I don't know what you're looking for
    I said, I bet that you look good on the dance floor
    Dancing to electro-pop like a robot from 1984
    Well, from 1984

    Oh, there ain't no love, no Montagues or Capulets
    Just banging tunes and DJ sets and
    Dirty dance floors and dreams of naughtiness!

    Well, I bet that you look good on the dance floor
    I don't know if you're looking for romance or
    I don't know what you're looking for
    I said, I bet that you look good on the dance floor
    Dancing to electro-pop like a robot from 1984
    Said, from 1984 Writer/s: Alexander David Turner

  • Supermanfriday from Wigan, United KingdomAs mentioned with John McClure ,his brother Chris is the guy on the front of the debut album...John is Reverend of the makers fame...in the words of Arthur Seaton "What People Say That I Am, That's What I'm Not"...
  • Eve from Ringwood, United KingdomFirst song of the Artic Monkeys I heard, and the one I love the most! So. Damn. Catchy!
  • G. from Tulsa, OkThis song takes a stab with Romeo and Juliet with the line No Montagues or Capulets. Like Romeo Montague and Juliet Capulet and how they were bound by blood to not be in love with each other
  • Juliette from Nabootique, Dalston, United KingdomThis is a great song, I think it's disgusting how the bloody Sugababes did a cover of it.

  • Marina from Winnipeg, Canadagreat album, song and band. when the sun goes down is the album's highlight though.
  • Aggie from Suva, Otheryeah his Sheffield accent FTW. i think there's a lot of hype involved. the monkeez motto: "don't believe the hype"
  • Mercedies from Soldotna, AkThis song rocks! I love this song and anyone that doesn't shouldn't be making comments.
  • Joe from Dublinhe does in his sh!te, betsy... he doesn't sing. he talks.
  • Marina from Seattle, WaThe Sugababes' version of this song is much better!
  • Betsey from Chico, CaI love how all of the lyrics on the album "What People Say That I Am, That's What I'm Not" have actual substance, not all that other crap that claim the airwaves. Oh and Alex Turner has a wonderful voice.
