Dead End Street

In the style of

The Kinks

Lyrics

there's a crack up
in the ceiling

and the kitchen sink is leaking
out of work and got no money

a sunday joint
of bread and honey

what are we living for?
two-roomed apartment

on the second floor
no money coming in

the rent collector's
knocking trying to get in

we are strictly second class
we don't

understand
why we should be

on dead end street?
people are living on

dead end street
i'm gonna die on

dead end street
dead end street

dead end street
on a cold and frosty morning

wipe my eyes and
stop me yawning

and my feet are nearly frozen
boil the tea and

put some toast on
what are we living for?

two-roomed apartment
on the second floor

no chance to emigrate
i'm deep in debt

and now it's much too late
we both want to work so hard

we can't
get the chance

people live on dead end street
people are dying on

dead end street
gonna die on dead end street

dead end street
dead end street

people live on dead end street
people are dying on

dead end street
gonna die on dead end street

dead end street
dead end street

dead end street
head to my feet

dead end street
dead end street

dead end street
how's it feel?

how's it feel?
dead end street

dead end street
