Bloody St Albans


This bloody town’s a bloody cus
No bloody trains, no bloody bus
And no one cares for bloody us
In bloody St Albans
The bloody roads are bloody bad
The bloody folks are bloody mad
They’d make the brightest bloody sad
In bloody St Albans
Everything’s so bloody dear
Five bob for a bloody beer
And is it good? No bloody fear
In bloody St Albans
The bloody flicks are bloody old
The bloody seats are bloody cold
You can’t get in for bloody gold
In bloody St Albans
The bloody dances make you smile
The bloody band is bloody vile
It only cramps your bloody style
In bloody St Albans
No bloody sport, no bloody games
No bloody fun, no bloody dames
Won’t even give you their bloody names
In bloody St Albans
Best bloody place is bloody bed
With bloody ice on your bloody head
You might as well be bloody dead
In bloody St Albans
