The Streets of Ipswich

So how can you tell me you’re lonely,
And say for you that the sun don’t shine?

Well let me take you by the hand And lead you through the Streets Of Ipswich
I’ll show you something that will really jar you off.

Well have you seen the old boy
Wondering down Dogs Head Street
Came here in the 60’s
Came here to work at Ransomes and Simms.
Left home with pity
To the bright lights of the city
Worked hard and played hard
Drinking in the 365 inns.

Well let me take you by the hand And lead you through the Streets Of Ipswich
I’ll show you something that will really jar you off.

And have you seen the old girl
Who walks the streets of Ipswich
Being mocked by the local scumbags?
She looks older than she is,
She wonders as if in utter bliss
Carrying a thousand old carrier bags.

Well let me take you by the hand And lead you through the Streets Of Ipswich
I’ll show you something that will really jar you off.

And have you seen the old boy
Sitting on the Cornhill
Jarred off mumbling to himself,
Wondering where his life has gone?
Now at one time this town really appealed
Now he longs for those East Anglian fields
Mumbles to himself about what went wrong.

Well let me take you by the hand And lead you through the Streets Of Ipswich
I’ll show you something that will really jar you off.
