Mile End


We didn't have nowhere to live

We didn't have nowhere to go

Till someone said:

"I know this place off Burnett Road"

It was on the 15th floor

It had a board across the door

It took an hour

To prise it off and get inside

It smelt as if someone had died

The living room was full of flies

The kitchen sink was blocked

The bathroom sink not there at all

Oh, it's a mess alright

Yes, it's Mile End

And now we're living in the sky

I never thought I'd live so high

Just like heaven

(If it didn't look like hell)

The lift is always full of piss

The fifth-floor landing smells of fish

Not just on Fridays -

- every single other day!

And all the kids come out at night

They kick a ball and have a fight

And maybe shoot somebody if they lose at pool

Oh, it's a mess alright

Yes, it's Mile End

(general chatter)

Nobody wants to be your friend

'Cos "you're not from round here", oh

(As if that was

Something to be proud about!)

The pearly king of the Isle of Dogs

Feels up children in the bogs

And down by the playing fields

Someone sets a car on fire

I guess you have to go right down

Before you understand just how

How low

How low a human being can go

Oh, it's a mess alright

Yes it's Mile End

Mile End
