Neighbourhood

Album: Spiders (1996)
Charted: 11
  • Who lives in a house like this?
    Who lives in a house like this?

    In number 69 there lives a transvestite
    He's a man by day
    But he's a woman at night
    There's a man in number 4 who swears he's Saddam Hussein
    Say's he's on a chore to start
    The Third World War

    Oh if you find the time
    Please come and stay a while
    In my beautiful neighbourhood

    In 110 they haven't paid the rent
    So there goes the TV with the
    Repo men
    In 999 they make a living from crime
    The house is always empty 'cause they're
    All doing time

    Oh if you find the time
    Please come and stay a while
    In my beautiful neighbourhood
    My neighbourhood
    My-my-my beautiful neighbourhood
    My neighbourhood
    My-my-my beautiful neighbourhood

    Who lives in a house like this?
    Who lives in a house like this?

    In number 18 there lives a big butch queen
    He's bigger than Tyson
    And he's twice as mean
    In 666 there lives a Mr Miller
    He's our local vicar
    And a serial killer

    Oh if you find the time
    Please come and stay a while
    In my beautiful neighbourhood
    My neighbourhood
    My-my-my beautiful neighbourhood
    My neighbourhood
    My-my-my beautiful neighbourhood

    Who lives in a house like this?
    Who lives here man?
    Who lives in a house like this?

    Oh they want to knock us down
    'cause they think we're scum
    But we will all be waiting
    When the bulldozers come
    In a neighbourhood like this you know
    It's hard to survive
    So you'd better come prepared
    'cause they won't take us alive

    Oh if you find the time
    Please come and stay a while
    In my beautiful neighbourhood
    My neighbourhood
    My-my-my beautiful neighbourhood
    My neighbourhood
