This might be considered a novelty song if it were not for soap operas such as Coronation Street
, the former of which spawned not only "(Don't Fall Into) The Mason's Arms
" but an aspiring serial killer, and the latter of which has had more than its fair share of murder, rape, child abuse and arson.
Having said that, the neighborhood created by Space sounds distinctly friendly in comparison. The serial killer is a vicar who lives at number 6-6-6, and the local recidivists hang out at number 9-9-9, or they would do if they weren't "all doing time". Presumably that would be number 9-1-1 in the United States, or perhaps they would live in a trailer?
