Stealing the Show

From Dagenham Heathway to Upton Park Life’s peculiar after dark Stopped at Aldgate East And ran into a priest Does it only happen to me Tried to leave at Turnham Green Packed inside like a sardine And at Acton Town The chips were down When I finally realized I’m stuck on a train Down here in the underground Train I gotta get off Crossing Bromley-By-The-Bow I’m only two years late by now And by Chiswick Park I made a harsh remark When I finally realized

Holly Mole 06:22
Thought I saw her standing there With her dark and dazzling hair But as I drove up It was another made girl Was a deer now she’s a rat And I fear that’s where it’s at Squeezed me with her paws And left me paralyzed CHORUS Holly Mole is on the run She’s the daughter of a gun And when you’re burning inside There’s nowhere to hide Phone was buzzing yesterday A crackling voice in my ear said Better change the lock Or I’ll be wearing cement shoes She’s been gone for ten years now The streets have settled down somehow But when I try to sing Out comes nothing but the blues

I was wandering through the night In the docks of this old city When I chanced upon the light and darkness of One-Step Avenue On the ground there was a box And a lightning fell right on me And I dashed for The dance floor I can't believe I'm CHORUS Stealing the show Oh no Stealing the show Stealing the show Oh no Stealing the show When I came to my senses I was once again a nobody And I recollected my pretenses at One-Step Avenue Then I gazed upon the box In the hands of a vagabond And she dashed for The dance floor I can't believe she's CHORUS Now you wonder About the wonder Of the strange docks And the dance box But who cares when you're CHORUS

Three cheers for Norma She's a minor recluse Never trust a girl who's got nothing to lose Spud's not a liar Spud's not a crook He just don't think that you can live all by the book Four losers in a conjugation A party for investigation CHORUS In a cloud of blue smoke We're off in the Mini Moke again Another adventure awaits at the end Did you meet Lucky He's one unlucky guy Been a jailbird almost 27 times Four losers in a conjugation A party for investigation CHORUS Can you remember? Your nick was "The Brain" On reflection, it was one sarcastic blame Four losers in a conjugation A party for investigation CHORUS
