Streetscene

That’s a tanning studio
That’s a chippy
That’s a tanning studio

That’s a hairdressers

Empty shop
Empty shop
Empty shop

That’s a smoke free Wetherspoons

That’s a closed pub
That’s a closed pub
That’s a closed pub

That’s a couple strapped
for cash

That’s a family next door
whose giro
couldn’t last

That’s a fake tan
That’s a discarded chip paper
That’s another fake tan

That’s just a street
come to the end
