Welcome to My Poetry Site
Back alley love
I blew it out, I got it wrong, I loved a girl
Wrong side of town, and now we meet
But don't stay long, back alley love's
'bout all we've got.
We don't say much, kiss even less, she
Wears a simple cotton dress, no zip, no
Buttons, hitch up fast, the fact I love her's
All she asks.
I don't know why we stick it out, got no
Future, got no house, got no plans, it's
Just us two, back ally love, back alley
The baby came, the baby went, can't
Keep a child, can't pay the rent, but we
Still meet 'cause we can't stop, back
Alley love's 'bout all we got.
