‘Mardy Bum’ by Alex Turner

‘Mardy Bum’

by Alex Turner

“Now then Mardy Bum
I see your frown
And it’s like looking down the barrel of a gun
And it goes off
And out come all these words
Oh there’s a very pleasant side to you
A side I much prefer…”

You can read the lyrics in full here. One of Arctic Monkeys’ earlier compositions of domesticity that belied their young age – Turner was only 20 when the album was released.
