I met my love by the gas works wall
Dreamed a dream by the old canal
Kissed a girl by the factory wall
Dirty old town, Dirty old town

Clouds a drifting across the moon
Cats a prowling on their beat
Spring's a girl in the street at night
Dirty old town, Dirty old town

I Heard a siren from the docks
Saw a train set the night on fire
I Smelled the spring on the smoky wind
Dirty old town, Dirty old town

I'm gonna make me a good sharp axe
Shining steel tempered in the fire
Will chop you down like an old dead tree
Dirty old town, Dirty old town

Dirty old town, Dirty old town
