One hand on the controllerOne hand on the re-windYou can even watch it all in slow mo’’cos you just sit at home all dayNow you got plenty of timeIf you want some real live actionAnd the video’s too tameIf you wanna touch some heatBut you don’t know how to light that flameIf you want some satisfactionInstead of studying the freeze frameI used to have this spot on main streetIt was bounding, it was hotIt was dark, it was dirtyBut dull it was notThe joint was jumping every nightBut now it’s just a parking lotThis city was cruelThis city was keenThis city was aliveThis city was meanTill the office blocks and parking lotsCame and closed this city downI could stand outsideThe kids hung roundAnd the neon sign saidWelcome to sleazy townWelcome to sleazy townSleazy, sleazy townEverybody hung looseIt was cool and easyPeople used to meet and have a good timeDown in sleazy town, sleazy town, sleazy town, sleazy townThen the corporations came alongAnd bought this piece of groundThe leases all went upAnd so the buildings all came downThey built the motorways and shopping mallsAnd they killed off sleazy townThis city was coolThis city was keenThis city was aliveThis city was till the office blocks and parking lotsCame and closed this city downI could stand outside, the kids hung roundAnd the neon sign saidWelcome to sleazy townWelcome to sleazy town, sleazy, sleazy townCity hall killed off that sceneNow sleazy town is just a dream
