Babyshambles – Black Boy Lane lyrics

Aint going back to black boy lane,
No I aint going back to black boy lane,
There must be some other way,
Because I aint going back to black boy lane,
Never again...

Do you think you can help?
Can't you make me a call?
We're so near to town,
I can't get nothing at all
Today, are you dancing today?

15 Track-suits coming up my lane,
15 Track-suits coming up my lane,

There's the men; the ones you must lay,
In which you must lay down and die,

Oh as opposed to strutting all day,
Strutting all night,
Strutting on 'brown, '
Strutting on 'white, '

All day,
Are you dancing today?

Ah there's a bullet there with my name,
So I aint going back to black boy lane,
Never, never again,

What about the fella you knew from sometime before,
In the house by the park with a cage on the door,
You phone and you say, are you dancing today?
Are we dancing today?
