Dirty old town

I met my love by the gaswork's door,
dreamed a dream by the old canal,
kissed my boy by the factory wall
|: dirty old town :|

The moon is shifting behind a cloud
Cats are crawling all along the beat
Spring's a girl in the streets at night
|: dirty old town :|

I heard a whistle coming from the docks,
and a train set the night on fire,
smelled the spring in the smoke-filled air
|: dirty old town :|

I'm gonna get me a nice sharp axe,
shining steal tempered in the fire,
cut you down like an old dead tree
|: |: dirty old town :| :|
