about

The Park Road - Arthur's neighbourhood where people lived without hope, as seen from the outside.

lyrics

Kevin's at the bus stop
He stares at chimney pots
He ain't got no money
And his drinking never stops

On The Park Road
Where you drive through, and don't stop

2
Charlie's in the bookies
Trying to take grey from his skies
Carries the cares of his world
In the bags beneath his eyes

On the Park Road
Where there's boarded rows of shops
Made from vandalized breeze blocks
And the telly never off,
you can hear the smokers cough
On the Park Road

If this is prosperity we have
Tell the folks that live there they've been had
On the Park Road

Jade screams at her daughter
she curses her so loud
A baby whilst a schoolgirl
Just to keep in with her crowd

On the Park Road
There is no future, can't get away
On the Park Road
Where you'll be gripped
and you will stay
So Jade peers into her bag
A plastic lighter, roll up fag
On the Park Road

People there wear track suits all their lives
It's plain to see they never exercise
On the Park Road

Marge lives on her pension
Her old man gave her the push
the future once looked rosy
when they moved from Sheppard's Bush

On the Park Road, where the old can't get about
On the Park Road, and the moneys all run out

So give three cheers & leave 'em be
I don't want them living by me
On the Park Road
