Arctic Monkeys The Bakery Lyrics

I wish you would have smiled in the bakery

Or sat on a tatty settee

At some mutual friend’s gathering

And the more you keep on looking the more it’s hard to take

Love, we’re in stalemate

To never meet it surely where we’re bound

There’s one in every town

Just there to grind you down

I wish I would have seen you in the post office

Well maybe I did and I missed it

Too busy with a mind on clever lines

Why not the rounder’s pitch or the canteen?

You’re slacking love where have you been?

Just had to go and wait until tonight

(To give me the invite don’t worry it’s alright)

I wish I would have seen you down in the arcade

Sipping on a lemonade

In the paper cup and chewing on the straw

And I wish I’d seen you in the bakery

But if I’d seen you in the bakery

You probably wouldn’t have seen me
