Down on the corner under the railway
I hear the old people saying
It was better without you babe
It was better without

You want to live on Shouting Street
Watch your Punjabi
You want to bop it on Shouting Street
Lay off me Biriani

Now take my motor - Now that's a bargain
No M.O.T ans the what sit needs welding
Tell ya who's a-gonna fix it for you
Tell ya who's a-gonna fix it for you

Take it down to Shouting Street
There'll be a geezer
He's gotta shack on Shouting Street
One greasy geezer

He's got a real sideline from Scandinavia
Where they understand things of that nature
Don't a-tell that you got it from him
Oh don't tell that you got it from him

Say you got it out on Shouting Street
Say you found it in the garbage
Say you got it out on Shouting Street
Say you got it from Jim Jarmusch

Let me rock it out on Shouting Street
Just like Eddie Cochran
We've see rough boys born of this manor
Always doing their nuts when they ain't got spanners

But just you wait till they've been away
Just you wait till they've been away
They'll be back down Shouting Street
Selling lady shavers

They'll be back on Shouting Street
They got good behavior
Oh let me rock it out on Shouting Street
And borrow money from me neighbors

Oh let me rick it out on Shouting Street
In fifty seven flavors
