"I Bet You Look Good on the Dancefloor" is the first single released by Sheffield band the Arctic Monkeys after being signed on Domino Records. Released on 14 October 2005, it rode the wave of popularity behind the band after a series of sellout gigs across the country, culminating with a gig in front of 2,000 people at the London Astoria. It debuted at Number One on the UK Singles Chart on 23 October. The release of the song and its rise to number one further increased the ever-growing hype surrounding the band, and it was two weeks before they reached the cover of NME magazine. The single was released during a sell-out UK tour, although the band were playing at significantly smaller venues to those at which they would perform only months later. The title track also features on the band's debut album, Whatever People Say I Am, That's What I'm Not, which was released on 23 January 2006 - one week after their second single - "When the Sun Goes Down".

I Bet You Look Good on the Dancefloor - Arctic Monkeys

[Verse]
Stop making the eyes at me,
I'll stop making the eyes at you.
And what it is that surprises me is that I don't really want you to
And your shoulders are frozen (as cold as the night)
And you're an explosion (you're dynamite)
Your name isn't Rio, but I don't care for sand
And I fuse the results in a bang baba bang-go

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

[Verse]
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 (as cold as the night)
Oh your an explosion (Your dynamite)
Your name isn't Rio, but I don't care for sand
And I fuse the results in a bang baba bang-go

[Chorus:]
I said I bet that you look good on the dance floor
I don't know if you're looking for romance or what
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
From 1984!

[Verse]
Oh there is no love no, Montague's or Capulet's
Just banging tunes in dj sets and
Dirty dance floors and dreams of naughtiness

[Chorus:]
Well I said I bet that you look good on the dance floor
I don't know if you're looking for romance or what
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
From 1984!
