Now then Mardy Bum
I see your frown
And it's like looking down the barrel of a gun
And it goes off
And out come all these words
Oh there's a very pleasant side to you
A side I much prefer

It's one that's laughs and jokes around
Remember cuddles in the kitchen
Yeah, to get things off the ground
And it was, up up and away
Oh, but it's right hard to remember
That some day like today when you're all argumentative
And you've got the face on

Well now then Mardy Bum
Oh I'm in trouble again, aren't I?
I thought as much
You turned over there
Pulling that silent disappointment face
The one that I can't bear

Can't we, laugh and joke around
Remember cuddles in the kitchen
Yeah, to get things off the ground
And it was, up up and away
Oh, but it's right hard to remember
That some day like today when you're all argumentative
And you've got the face on

Yeah I'm sorry I was late
But I missed the train
And then the traffic was a state
And I can't be arsed to carry on in this debate
That reoccurs, oh when you say I don't care
But of course I do, yeah clearly I do!

So laugh and joke around
Remember cuddles in the kitchen
Yeah, to get things off the ground
And it was, up up and away
Still is right hard to remember
That on a day like today when you're all argumentative
And you've got the face on

    This song is basically about the negatives of having a girlfriend especially a moody aggressive one. Alex Turner is forced to reflect on better periods in their relationship where things were a lot more chilled out and loving like generally having a laugh and getting touchy feely in the kitchen. Now things are so bad he likens it to looking down the barrel of a loaded gun that eventually goes off. During the chorus he trys to get her to "laugh and joke around" but at the end of the chorus tells her that he can't even think of the good times when shes being so moody.
