It was a filthy block of flats
Trash was on the floor
A stink was in my nose
Hinges off the doors

She took me in her room
All was spick and span
Fixed me up a drink
Turned down all the lamps

And the rain fell down
On the cold hard ground (grey town)
And the phone kept ringing
And we made sweet love

Why do we live in this strange grey town?
They build it up and let it all fall down
Feel like we're living in a battleground
Everybody's jazzed

Why do we live in this strange grey town?
The paint is peeling and the sky's turned brown
The bankers are wankers, every Thursday night
They just vomit on the ground

Everybody's dreaming
Everybody's scheming, yeah
Oh, watching the rain fall down

She cooked me up some eggs
Then she made some tea
Kissed me on the cheek
And I turned on her TV

It was all the usual crap
All the usual sleaze
For ten thousand quid
Some bimbo spilled the beans, yeah

And the rain fell down
And we made, and we made, and we made sweet love
And the phone kept, the phone kept ringing

And the phone kept ringing
The phone kept ringing, yeah
And the rain...
