Who Sang Blood Alley? The Tiger Lillies

length: 3:35
The cancers got it's grip upon you
More evil than a grinning clown
More evil than the harbour in Shanghai
In which the suicides do drown
Blood Alley you won't be tripping down it
In opium dreams you'll be d***ed
In blood alley with another set of dreamers
Vertinsky sings and no one gives a d***
And we can only watch as time passes
See the young ones getting old
The drinkers and the rebels and the junkies
So now your warm heart is going cold
We're drunk, the cold bites like a bulldog
At the market they're singing bags of bones
The sausages are sizzling with the onions
in your grave you're just skin and bones
The strange girl who sings like Marlene Dietrich
Shall we murder those young groupie girls?
The trannies twitch and dream of young men
The street girls dream of diamonds and pearls
The harmonium is no longer wheezing
The celeste is rusting in the rain
Anna who's son died at the market
And left her bereft and in pain
Another alchy's kidneys have malfunctioned
In the gutter now he does lie
Your penny whistle blows down this lonely street
On Blood Alley I say goodbye
