Madness - Razor Blade Alley Lyrics

Madness One Step Beyond… cover art

Oooh, I didn't talk too much, in fact not at all
But to ask for the price, I was to be no fool
Money's no time to waste or to shoot up the wall
You got the know how, the place, teacher take me to your school

She lead the way from the alley back to her house
Must not be seen going in, must not be seen coming out
She said I look mighty but thin she told me
"I'm gonna give you a second helping"

Oooh, Razor Blade Alley I've been there
Razor Blade Alley neither of us cared
It was the prime time but the wrong place
It was my first time I hope my last taste
I'm just too shy to check in
But this pain of pissing razors is cutting in
Awwoh

Umm, felt like a knight without shining armor on
At the time she thought she was in a dream
Floating up on cloud nine now I awake
She is nowhere, but the razor cuts deeper everywhere
Awwoh
