W:I met my love by the gas works wall,
W:Dreamed a dream by the old canal,
W:Kissed a girl by the factory wall,
W:Dirty old town, dirty old town.
W:
W:Clouds are drifting across the moon,
W:Cats are prowling on their beat,
W:Spring's a girl in the street at night,
W:Dirty old town, dirty old town.
W:
W:I heard a siren from the docks,
W:Saw a train set the night on fire,
W:I smelled the spring on the smokey breeze,
W:Dirty old town, dirty old town.
W:
W:I'm going to make me a good sharp axe,
W:Shining steel tempered in the fire,
W:I'll chop you down like an old dead tree,
W:Dirty old town, dirty old town.
