'Riot Van' By The 'Arctic Monkeys'

[Verse 1]
               F#m C#m       Bm
  Up rolls the riot van and sparks excitement in the boys
               F#m C#m       Bm
                            But the policemen look annoyed
               F#m  C#m      Bm
                           Perhaps these are ones they should avoid

F#m  C#m      Bm

[Chorus]
   A                         C#m                     Bm
  We got a chase last night from men with trunchons dressed in hats
   E                    A                         C#m
                         Didn't do that much wrong still ran away though
 Bm               E
for the laugh just for the laugh

  & please just stop talking 'cause they won't find us if you do
               F#m C#m       Bm
                            All those silly boys in blue
               F#m C#m       Bm
                             No they won't catch me and you

   E                    A                         C#m
                         Im sorry officer is there a certain age your s'posed to be

  up rolls the     riot van    and these lads just wind the coppers up

                            They ask why they don't catch proper crooks
               F#m C#m       Bm
                           They Get thier address and their names took
               F#m C#m       Bm
                                          But they couldn't care less

A C#m Bm E x3

[Verse 4]
               F#m C#m       Bm
    Thrown in the riot van and the coppers kicked him in
               F#m C#m       Bm
                            And there was no way he could win
               F#m C#m       Bm
                            Just had to take it on the chin
