  • One for the road, ooh ooh
    One for the road, ooh ooh

    From the bottom of your heart
    The relegation zone
    I saw this coming from the start
    The shake, rattle and roll
    The cracks in blackout blinds
    Cast patterns on the ceiling but you're feeling fine
    I thought it was dark outside
    I thought it was dark outside
    (One for the road)

    So we all go back to yours and you sit and talk to me on the floor
    There's no need to show me 'round, baby, I feel like I've been here before
    I've been wondering whether later when you tell everybody to go
    Will you pour me one for the road?

    I knew this would be on the cards
    I knew you wouldn't fold
    I saw this coming from the start
    The shake, rattle and roll

    (One for the road)

    So we all go back to yours and you sit and talk to me on the floor
    There's no need to show me 'round, baby, I feel like I've been here before
    I've been wondering whether later when you tell everybody to go
    Will you pour me one for the road?

    The mixture hits you hard
    Don't get that sinking feeling
    Don't fall apart
    Some out of tune guitar
    Soundtrack to disaster

    Ooh ooh, one for the road
    Ooh ooh, one for the road
    Ooh ooh, one for the road
    Ooh ooh, one for the road

    So we all go back to yours and you sit and talk to me on the floor
    There's no need to show me 'round, baby, I feel like I've been here before
    I've been wondering whether later when you tell everybody to go
    Will you pour me one for the road? Writer/s: Alex Turner
