Ian Dury & The Blockheads – Plaistow Patricia lyrics

Arseholes, bastards fucking cunts and pricks

Aerosole, the bricks
A lawless brat from a council flat oh, oh
A little bit of this and a little bit of that oh, oh
Dirty tricks

From the Mile End Road to the Matchstick Beacontree
Pulling strokes and taking liberties
She liked it best when she went up west oh, oh
You can go to hell with your 'well, well, well' oh, oh

Well who said good things always come in threes?
Reds and yellows, purples, blues and greens
She turned the corner before she turned fifteen
She got into a mess on the nhs oh, oh
It runs down your arms and settles in your palms oh, oh

Keep your eyeballs white and keep your needles clean

Plaistow patrica (x5)

Well her tits had dropped, her arse was getting spread
She lost some teeth, she nearly lost the thread
'till she did some smack with a Chineese chap oh, oh
And affair began with Charley Chan oh, oh

Well that was jsut before she really lost her head
Now she owns a showroom down at the Mile End Road
And her outer garments are the latest mode
There's a siemese cat in a council flat oh, oh
The finest grains for my lady's veins oh, oh

And when it gets out of order, she goes away for a bit

Repeat chorus

G'wan girl!!
