Riot Van - Arctic Monkeys

Riot Van

Beneath the Boardwalk
indie indie rock rock british arctic monkeys


The ideas behind many of the Arctic Monkey’s songs are laid out there pretty bluntly, but they always show an underlying idea or feeling behind the apparent story-line. In this it tells about a group of people who are just out to have fun, don’t really care much of what happens to them in life. As long as they had some good laughs, they don’t care if they are rich or have a job or are poor or anything. They just want to exist.

Riot Van - Arctic Monkeys

Up rolled the riot van
And sparked excitement in the boys
But the policemen look annoyed
Perhaps these are ones they should avoid

They got a chase last night from men with truncheon's dressed in hats
They didn't do that much wrong, still ran away though for the laugh just for the laugh

"Please just stop talking
Because 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 is there a certain age you're supposed to be?: nobody told me"

Up rolled the riot van
And these lads just wind the coppers up
Ask why they don't catch proper crooks
Get their address and their name's took
But they couldn't care less

He got 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
