"Darling It Hurts" as written by and Paul Maurice/connolly Kelly....
I see you standing on the corner with your dress so high
And all the cars slow down as they see you driving by
Thought you said you had some place to go
What you doing up here putting it all on show?

Darling it hurts to see you down Darlinghurst tonight

Do you remember Darling how we laughed and cried
We said we'd be together till the day we died
How could something so good turn so bad?
I'd do it all again 'coz you're the best I've ever had

Darling it hurts to see you down Darlinghurst tonight

See that man with the glad hands
I want to kill him but it wouldn't be right
Now here comes another man with the gladbags
I want to break him but it's not my fight
In one hand and out the other
Baby I don't even know why you bother

Darling it hurts to see you down Darlinghurst tonight

    General CommentFor non-Australians, Darlinghurst is a suburb in Sydney near Kings Cross known for prostitution. The songs about a man who realises his girlfriend is a prostitute.

    General Comment'that man with the glad hands' is the men slowing as they drive by looking for prostitutes.
    The man with the 'gladbags' sells drugs in zip-lock glad bags completing this poor girls awful circle of life of prostituting herself to pay for the drugs and over and over again... 'in one hand and out the other, baby i dont even know why you bother!'

    General Commentjust a thought
    isn't Paul Kelly from melbourne and a few of his songs like from st kilda to kings cross and leaps and bounds are about places in melbourne
    so why is he referring to darlinghurst which is in Sydney
    surely there's a trashy prostitution strip bar drug laden suburb in melbourne he can refer to

    p.s. surely my bias indicates I am from Sydney
