Thrashing Doves - Castroville Street lyrics

You come on like Patience Strong
It is very simple, but simply very wrong
Unofficial tax, anaesthetic tact
Allows you to cheat behind our backs

And when a wanted man passes through your hands
First thing you do is inform the law
'Cause every passing sin that you turn in
Provides you with more freedom behind your door, whoo!

Shame on Castroville Street
They're laughing on the line
And you've got colored pictures
Of every man that kissed you
Well, that's a profit making way
To pass your time

The women know where their husbands go
And it's very real but really very low
The man may try to curb their appetites
But you've clipped their wings and they cannot fly

Shame on Castroville Street
They're laughing on the line
And you've got colored pictures
Of every man that kissed you
Well, that's a profit making way
To pass your time

Here we go

The doctor's name is Dr. Stain
And when he's on that table you don't feel no pain
No one has seen the places he has been
But he's got his shiny cross to keep him clean, oh

Shame on Castroville Street
They're laughing on the line
And you've got colored pictures
Of every man that kissed you, oh

But all is not well on Castroville Street
There's a wicked rumor that life comes cheap
But no one's digging that deep
Or putting the heat on Castroville Street

Ooh, that's Castroville
Ooh, that's Castroville
Ooh, Castroville, yeah
Ooh, that's Castroville
