    As seen through the lens of my old iPhone
    Belle & Sebastian - The Boy With The Arab Strap - Live at Tivoli Gardens - July 31, 2015 - Lyrics Below:
    Copenhagen



    A mile and a half on a bus takes a long time
    The odour of old prison food takes a long time to pass you by
    When you've been inside
    Day upon day of this wandering gets you down
    Nobody gives you a chance or a dollar in this old town

    Hovering silence from you is a giveaway
    Squalor and smoke's not your style
    I don't like this place
    We better go
    Then I compare notes with your older sister
    I am a lazy gett, she is as pure as the cold driven snow
    She accepts my confession

    What did you learn from your time in the solitary
    Cell of your mind?
    There was noises, distractions from anything good
    And the old prison food
    Colour my life with the chaos of trouble
    Cause anything's better than posh isolation
    1 missed the bus
    You were laid on your back
    With the boy from the arab strap
    With the boy from the arab strap

    It's something to speak of the way you are feeling
    To crowds there assembled
    Do you ever feel you have gone too far?
    Everyone suffers in silence a burden
    The man who drives minicabs down in Old Compton
    The Asian man
    With his love hate affair
    With his racist clientele

    A central location for you is a must as you stagger about makingfree with your lewd and lascivious boasts
    We know you are soft cause we've all seen you dancing
    We know you are hard cause we all saw you drinking from noon
    Until noon again
    You're the boy with the filthy laugh
    You're the boy with the arab strap

    Strapped to the table with suits from the shelter shop
    Comic celebrity takes a back seat as the cigarette catches
    And sets off the smoke alarm
    What do you make of the cool set in London?
    You're constantly updating your hit parade of your ten biggestwanks
    She's a waitress and she's got style
    Sunday bathtime could take a while

    Belle and Sebastian signed to Jeepster Recordings in 1996 soon after the limited edition, vinyl only release of their debut album Tigermilk. Their first Jeepster album, If You’re Feeling Sinister, was soon followed by the Dog On Wheels, Lazy Line Painter Jane and 3..6..9 Seconds of Light EPs which kept their growing fanbase supplied with new music while they recorded third album The Boy With The Arab Strap. The Bowlie Weekender Festival where this footage was filmed came soon after the band’s surprise Brit Award win for Best Newcomer!
