Riot Van Lyrics - Arctic Monkeys

Review The Song (7)

So up rolls a riot van
And sparks excitement in the boys
But the policemen look annoyed
Perhaps these are ones they should avoid

Got a chase last night
From men with truncheons dressed in hats
We didn't do that much wrong
Still ran away though for the laugh
Just for the laugh
And please just stop talking
Cause they won't find us if you do
Oh those silly boys in blue
Well they won't catch me and you

Have you been drinking, son
You don't look old enough to me
I'm sorry, officer
sponsored links
Is there a certain age you're supposed to be
Cause nobody told me

And up rolls the riot van
And these lads just wind the coppers up
They ask why they don't catch proper crooks
They get their address and their names took
But they couldn't care less

Thrown in the riot van,
and all the coppers kicked him in,
and there was no way he could win,
just had to take it on the chin.

Can you just get yourself informed before commenting on how the lyrics are wrong? Its common that Alex Turner changes the lyrics here and there as he performs and records certain songs so this are just the lyrics from one of the Riot Van versions

This is "Arctic Monkeys - Riot Van (DEMO)"

the version is called DEMO.. it's not a demo as in a short clip..

it's just like hows there's "Cigarette Smoke" and there's "Cigarette Smoke(FIONA)" same song just differen lyrics.

Riot Van i guess... | Reviewer: Phil | 6/25/07

This is the original riot van.. i just downloaded it. These lyrics are correct but if you want lyrics for the album version... umm this isn't it i guess. So shh, it's right.

Very wrong | Reviewer: Anonymous | 6/17/07

Maybe this is the lyrics for the extended version cause the song at the real album for sure hasn't got this lyrics

You what? | Reviewer: Tom | 6/2/07
