Helen Love - (The Continuing Adventures Of) The Girl About Town lyrics

Well I'm hanging around with the girl about town,
She can't stand up for falling down,
We're in the gutter and looking up
And wishing on the stars
Says "Twenty years ago today
"I was a Welsh girl in the USA
"I met a boy on ligger street
"Who stole my heart

"Yeah, we danced all night to the sounds of The Ramones
"He had a punkrock guitar that I played when we got home
"He knew a drummer with a pink haircut and his sister joined the band
"Six months later we signed a deal and we headed for Japan

"Now I live on the fourteenth floor of tower block estate
"And when I'm drunk I see the lights shine over Swansea Bay
"I wish I was back...
"I wish I was back...
"I wish I was back...
"I wish I was back...
"Back in the New York groove."

Well I'm hanging around with the girl about town,
She can't stand up for falling down,
She's got plastic badge stuck across her heart
Says "gimme teenage kicks"
Says "Twenty years ago today
"I was a Welsh girl in the USA
"I fell in love with a boy from Queens
"And quit the band.

"Spent all my money on a cocktail dress with matching silver shoes
"And a purple souped-up travellator David Bowie used to use
"We bought some drugs and we hit the road on the hottest summer day
"But he left me for a singer in a disco band in a nightclub in L.A.

"Now I live on the fourteenth floor of tower block estate
"And when I'm drunk I see the lights shine over Swansea Bay
"I wish I was back...
"I wish I was back...
"I wish I was back...
"I wish I was back...
"Back in the New York groove.

"I'm the girl about town that you heard of,
"Girl about town."
