Down Our Street

Well it's of a gang and a band of fools They're all out having a wild carouse And there's skin and whiskers flying loose Down our Street Chorus Down our street There are married men and ladies fair Dancing mad in the midnight air And there's several jawbones missing, where? Down our Street The landlord never get his rent (Down our street) For when he calls we haven't a cent (Down our street) Well he says he'll never call again He'll have the baliffs around by ten There'll be plenty of houses to let by then (Down our street) Chorus Down our street There are married men and ladies fair Dancing mad in the midnight air And there's several jawbones missing, where? Down our street The collector does a lively trade (Down our street) For all have bought but none have paid (Down our street) And when he comes to get his own He's dead before he starts to moan Now we're building a graveyard of our own (Down our street) Chorus Down our street There are married men and ladies fair Dancing mad in the midnight air And there's several jawbones missing, where? Down our street Salvation army came around last night (Down our street) They were trying to teach us wrong from right (Down our street) The sisters they began to moan The person spoke in a shnuffly aul tone He was hit on the head with a raw hambone (Down our street) Chorus Down our street There are married men and ladies fair Dancing mad in the midnight air And there's several jawbones missing, where? Down our Street Well a policeman once he hit Muldoon (Down our street) Says Muldoon there'll be a funeral soon (Down our street) They took off their coats to fight one round And when Muldoon got off the ground A policeman's whiskers was all they found (Down our street) Chorus Down our street There are married men and ladies fair Dancing mad in the midnight air And there's several jawbones missing, where? Down our street
