"White Heat" as written by and Graham/barson Mcpherson....
Down between the sunbeams
The money lenders chat
Hiding in the shade
Outside a council flat

Kids in the lift
Looking for things to throw
And practising their aim
On the heads below

They make their apologies
With the quickness of their feet
Then lost in the heat haze
That shimmers across the street

Underfoot the pavement is melting
Crumbling for the luckiest girl
The whole world is melting

(White, white heat)
But I'm still not in
Until a week next Wednesday
I'm holidaying on the roof
Till the big bad wolf goes away

In the street the pavement is melting
Crumbling for the luckiest girl
The whole world is melting

White heat
Turns the street
Upside down

Down between the sunbeams
The debt collectors chat
Hiding in the shade
Outside a council flat

By the hairs on my chinny chin chin
I shall not let you in

In the street the pavement is melting
Crumbling for the luckiest girl
The whole world is melting

For the luckiest girl
White, white heat
