Red Light Indicates Doors Are Secure

Album: Whatever People Say That I Am, That's What I'm Not (2006)
  • Ask if we can have six in, if not we'll have to have 2
    You're coming up our end aren't you? So I'll get one with you
    Oh won't he let us have six in? especially not with the food
    He coulda just told us no though, he dint have to be rude

    See her in the green dress? She talked to me at the bar
    How come its already two pound fifty? We've only gone about a yard
    Didn't ya see she were gorgeous, she was beyond belief
    But this lad at the side drinking a Smirnoff ice came and paid for her tropical Reef

    And I'm sitting going backwards, and I didn't want to leave
    Its high green mate, via hillsborough please

    How funny was that sketch earlier, up near that taxi rank
    Oh no you will have missed it, think it was when you went to the bank
    These two lads squaring up proper shouting, bout who was next in the queue
    The kind of thing that would seem so silly but not when they've both had a few

    Calm down temper temper, you shouldn't get so annoyed
    You're acting like a silly little boy
    They wanted to be men and do some fighting in the street
    No surrender, no chance of retreat

    Drunken plots hatched to jump it, ask around are ya sure?
    Went for it but the red light was showing
    And the red light indicates doors are secured
