Arctic Monkeys - A Certain Romance Lyrics




"Shall I keep rolling?"

Well oh they might wear classic Reeboks
Or knackered Converse
Or tracky bottoms tucked in socks
But all of that's what the point is not
The point's that there ain't no romance around there

And there's the truth that they can't see
They'd probably like to throw a punch at me
And if you could only see them, then you would agree
Agree that there ain't no romance around there

You know, oh, it's a funny thing, you know?
We'll tell them if you like
We'll tell them all tonight
They'll never listen
Because their minds are made up
And course it's all OK to carry on that way

'Cause over there there's broken bones
There's only music, so that there's new ringtones
And it don't take no Sherlock Holmes
To see it's a little different around here

Don't get me wrong though there's boys in bands
And kids who like to scrap with pool cues in their hands
And just 'cause he's had a couple of cans
He thinks it's alright to act like a dickhead

Don't you know, oh it's a funny thing you know
We'll tell them if you like
We'll tell them all tonight
They'll never listen
Because their minds are made up

And course is all OK to carry on that way
But I said no, oh no!
Well, you won't get me to go
Not anywhere, not anywhere
No, I won't go, oh no, no

But over there there's friends of mine
What can I say, I've known them for a long long time
And they might overstep the line
But you just cannot get angry in the same way
No, not in the same way
Said, not in the same way
Oh no, oh no, no!

  2. Myrda Febrianti

    2020 anyone?

  3. Sean Stewart

    A true early 2000’s masterpiece. I still remember when this album came out and this song always stuck out to me. It’s absolutely perfect and so accurate to the time and the scene. I will always listen back to the song with fond memories of being a teenager in the early to mid to 00’s

  4. JustPassin By

    one of the most chillest Arctic Monkeys songs if u count out the beginning and the end xD

  5. Karin Randall

    Farking love this track and band!

  6. IGNARIO_R6

    3:43 “that man just yawned”

  7. Minecraft Player777

    And y’all still forget that this was on Gavin and Stacey 😞

  8. 71rambler

    That was a terribly half-assed track. What happened to the consistency of the guitar riff at the beginning?

  9. David Bridge

    This sums up living in Wigan

  10. Cristian Olmos

    I like this song :) ...me gusta esta cancion :)

  11. ryroro

  13. bebe

    omg mems !! this album was the perfect album to blast thru my headphones goin down the slopes skiing at 15 !! infact i still have the scar on my forehead from gettin too reckless listening to the arctic monkeys while skiing !

  14. Eran Boazy

    Best song of the 2000's aside of A Rush of Blood to the Head by Coldplay

  15. Peter Bonnema

    Everyone below finds this song to be great but my bandmember suggested we played this and I was just like 'na, I don't like british music'. I stand by my statement. But the intro is, indeed, epic!

  16. Arianna de matteis

    Stupenda

  17. Adrian Grant

    Welcome to the party.

  18. Mikos Lhez

    Con está canción me liberé de mis demonios y mi pasado lastre, comencé a vivir, comencé amar, y entender todo lo que tenía, adónde quería llegar. Gracias.

  19. Ελένη Βλαχάκη

  28. Mario David Cuté

    A masterpiece!

  29. Callum Ormond

  30. Izzy H

    Thank you dad for introducing me to Arctic Monkeys and all of their amazing songs.❤️❤️

  31. Bursting Wizard

    The song is haunting. It perfectly sums up what life in Western Scotland is like

  32. Megan Ward

    *do i keep rolling?!* DRUMBEATS

  33. dav1d A

    14 years old, never forget...

  34. Ignant Benches

    THIS. THIS song right here is the 3rd and final song we played for our very first show as a band at a talent show in middle school. It was SO BAD. But people loved it and cheered us on, and we were rockstars for nearly 6 minutes. If you love Arctic Monkeys as much as I do, you should do me a solid and check out our channel and listen to "No, Thanks, Please". You'll be able to see just how much we're currently ripping off Arctic Monkeys. Sorry for the gross promo, but real shit, this song means the world to us.

  35. Cok Toe

    It's completely fucking insane how precisely they nailed this on SNL in 2006. I almost want to call shenanigans. But there were obvious differences.

  36. Boudreaux Broletariat

    *play at 1.25x speed * "PICK IT UUUUUUUUUUP"

  37. Ntina Psihala

    Nostalgia

  38. Zoe Andrea

    ιδιος ο παπαμιχαηλ

  39. Doomnack

    IT TOOK ME YEARS TO FIND THIS SONG
    THIS IS EPICSTYLE

  40. PISTOS

    Cover looks like Adam Sandler, fucken Jew!!!

  41. Kimberley De faria

    A certain romance and fluorescent adolescent bring me back to my teenage years and i feel so much nostalgia from it even tho i am still in my twenties. Its difficult to explain but it reminds me of a lost love that let my heart crushed which led to a feeling of emptiness and still a joy from the experience. I am french so dont mind the errors lol lets try to sleep now.

  42. Luis Zambrano

    It's strange, but this song makes me think about me in a future: 85 years old, a cup of wine, and me thinking about my past,all my friends and my life while listening to this song. Great!

  43. ichal dayat

    The best of song arctic monkeys

  44. Nerida Walker

    <3 Monkeys

  45. James B

    For me this is legit the best song to come out of the UK for a very long time

  46. AgileBeastt

    Any idea to illustrate this song? This song is too special to me and I want a tattoo.

  47. Niveditha Reddy

    Why does this song feel like I'm listening to the emo part of me if I was turned into sound?

  48. Chris Day

    As it ends you want to play it again.

  49. Paul V

    Why didn't anyone tell me about this song.

  50. Surya Adhie Indrawan

    All I know about England was FakeTaxi. And I'll tell you what, it was great

  51. heinz harald

    this album is one of the best i ever heard, i heard many

  52. mohammed elsir

    Alex, bring back your heavy Sheffield accent, please.
    The lyrics are pure poetry, perfectly captures England.

  53. Usengec Yengec

    ROADTRIP MUSIC
    I used to think that the guy in the pictures it was Adam sandler hahahahha
    I can't stop playing this song, over and over again

  54. Iggy Higgins

    Do northerners like people in London, asking for an American friend.

    Lola Rose

    There is definitely a bit of a ‘rivalry’ between the north and south so northerners will take the piss out of southerners and vice versa but it doesn’t run that deep most of the time

  55. JoeBoy !

    I moved to Florida a year and a bit ago. This song makes me miss my UK shithole hometown

  56. NXTTXDAY

    I’m from Manchester myself but my dad introduced me to Arctic Monkeys at a young age and I can’t thank him enough for that

  57. hertspatriot

    Fucking tune, cant believe how old this song is only seems like yesterday when i first heard this, brilliance

  58. Muskaart

    This is a banger

  59. Matteo Spagnuolo

    FckYeaz

  72. Bruno Troche

    They are playing today in my country for the first time, and I will not be there, as a longtime follower. I know it's sad, but for me this song meant a lot in many stages of my life so I can not get angry in the same way as before, after all they won't be playing this masterpiece and I will not be comfortable with all those AM songs which I don't feel any conection at all

  73. macca JFT96YNWA

    How fuckin' good was the monkeys first album? (Whatever people say i am, thats what i'm not) listen to it absolutely amazing.

  74. concertina calhandra

    Omg omg omg i just can't describe how this makes me feel

  75. Fletcher Mercer

    “Well over there there’s friends of mine, what can I say I’ve known em for a long long time”

  76. ohmykirby

    3:50 is just so beautiful to listen to

  77. Elliot Galaxy

    Raioz me pierdo entre comentarios en inglés.

  78. John

    I like how this song starts fast and then gets slow, whereas with Mardy bum it starts slow and gets fast.

  79. Rrr Rrr

    Hy guys. Can anybody tell the meaning of this song?

  80. Johny

    2019 anyone?

  81. DigitalVideoTools.org

    All of that's what the point is not...

  82. Fazilah Yusuf

    Charging the spirit

  83. andrea

    and the bass sounds so freaking happy and sad at the same time,makes my heart melts,it makes me feel kinda crazy or idk

    that feeling you can't said with words

  84. andrea

    yesterday I listened this song for the very first time, now i CAN'T STOP LISTENING

  85. andrea
