Intro- Guitar Strum-1


1:If you’re feeling down depressed and lonely

2: If you’re waiting for a long time

I know a place where we can go

For the rest to do their piece

Twenty two Acacia Avenue

you can tell her that you know me

Meet a lady that I know.

You might even get it free.

So if you’re looking for a good time

so any time you’re down at the east end

And you’re prepared to pay the price

Don’t you hesitate to go

fifteen quid is all shee asks for

you can take my honest word for it

every body got their vice.

She’ll teach you more than can know.

2:Someday when yuo’re reached the age of fourty

3:Charlotte isn’t it time you stopped this mad life

4:Sometimes when you’re strolling down the avenue

1:Can’t you see it only brings you sadness

2:But you’ll reget the days when you were laying

3:Don’t you ever think about the bad times

4:The way you walk it makes men think of heaving you



1:When you entertain your men don’t you know the risk

2:Nobody then will want to know you won’t heave any more

3:Why do you have to live this way do you enjoy your lay

4:When you’re walking down the street every body stops
