Suck It And See

Your love is like a studded leather headlock
Your kiss it could put creases in the rain
You're rarer than a can of dandelion and burdock
And those other girls are just post-mix lemonade

Suck it and see
You never know
Sit next to me
Before I go

Jigsaw women with horror movie shoes
Be cruel to me 'cause I'm a fool for you

I poured my aching heart into a pop song
I couldn't get the hang of poetry
That's not a skirt girl, that's a sawn-off shotgun
And I can only hope you've got it aimed at me

Suck it and see
You never know
Sit next to me
Before I go

Jigsaw women with horror movie shoes
Be cruel to me 'cause I'm a fool for...

Blue moon girls from once upon a Shangri-La
How I often wonder where you are
You have got that face that just says
"Baby, I was made to break your heart"

Suck it and see
You never know
Sit next to me
Before I go
Go...
Go...
Go...

Jigsaw women with horror movie shoes
Be cruel to me 'cause I'm a fool for you

Song facts

"That is something that I started writing when we were recording those Submarine tracks. It just sort of came to me that melody and chorus, it's quite Beach Boys-y which is something I've been listening to a lot recently, and always have. We decided to make it the title track quite near the end – once the pedals thing didn't really come off. When we played it to someone earlier they were asking us about the fizzy drink reference in that where it says "dandelion and burdock" – a lot of people don't get that and don't realise what it is. Something I like the idea of is putting colloquialisms where they feel strange – especially in some of the other tunes like the fuzzy, heavier ones, it feels quite funny when you can drop in something very British next to 'Raw Power' guitars." - Alex Turner
