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.
