  • I met my love by the gas works wall
    Dreamed a dream by the old canal
    Kissed a girl by the factory wall
    Dirty old town
    Dirty old town
    Clouds a drifting across the moon
    Cats a prowling on their beat
    Springs a girl in the street at night
    Dirty old town
    Dirty old town
    Heard a siren from the docks
    Saw a train set the night on fire
    Smelled the spring on the smoky wind
    Dirty old town
    Dirty old town
    I'm going to make me a good sharp axe
    Shining steel tempered in the fire
    Will chop you down like an old dead tree
    Dirty old town
    Dirty old town
