Respectable Street (BBC Version) Lyrics - XTC



Review The Song (0)


Heard the neighbour slam his car door,
Don't he realise this is Respectable Street?
What d'you think he bought that car for?
'Cause he realise this is Respectable Street

Now they talk about absorption,
In cosmopolitan proportions to their daughters,
As they speak of child prevention,
And immaculate receptions on their portable,
Sony entertainment centres.

Heard the neighbour slam his car door,
Don't he realise this is Respectable Street?
What d'you think he bought that car for?
'Cause he realise this is Respectable Street

Now she speak about diseases,
And which proposition pleases best her old man,
Avon lady fills the creases,
When she manages to squeeze in past the caravans,
That never move from their front gardens.

It's in the order of their hedgerows,
It's in the way their curtains open and close,
It's in the look they give you down their nose,
All part of decency's jigsaw I suppose.

Sunday church and they look fetching,
Saturday night saw him stretching over our fence,
Bang the wall for me to turn down,
I can see them with their stern frown,
As they dispense the kind of look that says they're perfect.

Heard the neighbour slam his car door,
Don't he realise this is Respectable Street?
What d'you think he bought that car for?
'Cause he realise this is Respectable Street
