Do I Wanna Know?

Arctic Monkeys

Do I Wanna Know? Lyrics

[Verse 1]
Have you got colour in your cheeks?
Do you ever get that fear that you can't shift the type
That sticks around like summat in your teeth?

Are there some aces up your sleeve?
Have you no idea that you're in deep?

I've dreamt about you nearly every night this week
How many secrets can you keep?

'Cause there's this tune I found
That makes me think of you somehow
An' I play it on repeat

Until I fall asleep
Spillin' drinks on my settee


[Pre-Chorus]
(Do I wanna know?)
If this feelin' flows both ways?
(Sad to see you go)
Was sorta hopin' that you’d stay

(Baby, we both know)
That the nights were mainly made
For sayin' things that you can’t say tomorrow day


[Chorus]
Crawlin' back to you
Ever thought of callin' when
You've had a few?
'Cause I always do

Maybe I'm too
Busy bein' yours
To fall for somebody new
Now, I've thought it through
Crawlin' back to you


[Verse 2]
So have you got the guts?
Been wondering if your heart's still open
And if so, I wanna know what time it shuts

Simmer down an' pucker up
I'm sorry to interrupt, it's just I'm constantly on the cusp
Of tryin' to kiss you

I don't know if you
Feel the same as I do
But we could be together
If you wanted to


[Pre-Chorus]
(Do I wanna know?)
If this feelin' flows both ways?
(Sad to see you go)
Was sorta hopin' that you’d stay

(Baby, we both know)
That the nights were mainly made
For sayin' things that you can’t say tomorrow day


[Chorus]
Crawlin' back to you (Crawlin' back to you)
Ever thought of callin' when
You've had a few? (You've had a few?)
'Cause I always do ('Cause I always do)

Maybe I'm too (Maybe I'm too busy)
Busy bein' yours (Being yours)
To fall for somebody new
Now, I've thought it through
Crawlin' back to you


[Pre-Chorus]
(Do I wanna know?)
If this feelin' flows both ways?
(Sad to see you go)
Was sorta hopin' that you’d stay

(Baby, we both know)
That the nights were mainly made
For sayin' things that you can’t say tomorrow day


[Outro]
(Do I wanna know?)
Too busy bein' yours to fall
(Sad to see you go)
Ever thought of callin', darlin'?
(Do I wanna know?)
Do you want me crawlin' back to you?

About “Do I Wanna Know?”

  • What have the artists said about the song?

    Alex Turner told Q magazine about the song:

    We had this idea for a record where you take the compositional perspective of an R&B producer and apply that to a four-piece rock'n'roll band. Manipulating our instruments to make building blocks for the song in a way I’d imagine Timberland or someone constructs music. That’s one way of looking at it. The other way is we just made it up! I had this tune in my head like (sings the opening riff of “Do I Wanna Know?,” including drums) you know what I mean? We got a good end of that bargain, I think.
