Hanging Around

Album: Rattus Norvegicus (1977)
  • Big girl in the red dress
    She's just trying to impress us
    And she's got the barley fever
    But she doesn't make a sound
    She's just hanging around
    She's just hanging around

    Down the court road early
    With the Hustlers big and burly
    There's a million of 'em selling
    And the buyers can be found
    They're just hanging around
    They're just hanging around

    [Chorus]
    Christ he told his mother
    Christ he told her not to bother
    Cos he's alright in the city
    Cos he's high above the ground
    He's just hanging around (hanging around)
    He's just hanging around (hanging around)
    He's just hanging around (hanging around)
    He's just hanging around (hanging around)

    One of 'em comes over
    Got a monkey on his shoulder
    And the monkey's getting grinner
    But his eyes are on the ground
    He's just hanging around
    He's just hanging around

    I'm moving to a coleheme
    With the leather all around me
    And the sweat is getting steamy
    But their eyes are on the ground
    They're just hanging around
    They're just hanging around

    [Chorus: x2]

    He's just hanging around (hanging around)
    He's just hanging around Writer/s: BRIAN JOHN DUFFY, DAVID GREENFIELD, HUGH ALAN CORNWELL, JEAN JACQUES BURNEL
