lyrics

We Love You 3.17 Stuart Forester

Inspired by London’s Soho and the Reeperbahn in Hamburg. Melodeon by Jack Burnaby.

Ladies and gentlemen step this way please to this den so immoral of vice and of sleaze
Our trade it is wicked our repute it is lowly, we take in all waifs and all strays from the street
My name it is John and they call me Jack Murphy, they come here for pleasure the world all around
Strippers and dippers of pockets and poets and lost souls who don’t ever want to be found
The bad girls of Soho and the wild Irish rovers mix with the police and men of the cloth
So come in my lovelies and lay down your money and all of your morals if any you’ve got

Oh we love you
So bad to the bone
Yes yes yes we’ll show you a good time
And you’ll never ever want to go home

We’re open on Sundays and Mondays and Tuesdays and the rest of the week as a matter of fact
Twenty four hours the clock’s always running and the girls all keep working flat on their backs
So take a walk with me there’s business for sale just up the alley they’re shaking their tails
Feathers and fetish and leather and chains and more things beyond to land you in jail

Oh we love you
So bad to the bone
Yes yes yes we’ll show you a good time
And you’ll never ever want to go home
