takes a long time to pass you by
F
Day upon day of this wandering gets you down, nobody gives you a chance or a 
          F
dollar in this old town
F
Hovering silence from you is a giveaway, squalor and smoke's not your style
                         F
I don't like this place, We better go
F

Colour my life with the chaos of trouble

Cause anything's better than posh isolation, I missed the bus, You were laid

on your back

The Asian man With his love/hate affair with his racist clientele
  F
A central location for you is a must as you stagger about making free with 
              F
your lewd and lascivious boasts
   F
We all know you are soft because we've all seen you dancing
                                                          F
We know you are hard because we all saw you drinking from noon until noon again

You're the boy with the filthy laugh
                             F
You're the boy with the arab strap
