"What The Milkman Saw" as written by Ed Cosens, Jon Mcclure and Alan Smyth....
I've heard he's into leather and what they both do when they're together
Curtains twitch in suburbia tonight
I've heard that they're not real brothers, 'cause their mam went with another
Taproom gossip in suburbia tonight

And the mother's meet and does the rounds
Hasn't Sheila Jackson piled on the pounds?
It wouldn't spread much quicker if you put it on the internet

What's going on at number 34? Kev says there's bodies buried underneath the floor
But this isn't murder it's just Grenocide
Can you believe that Keeley's with him again? A clever lass but she's daft when it comes to men
Walls have ears and there's nowhere to hide

In the corner shop all the rumors start
With the dirty looks and the sly remarks
It wouldn't spread much quicker if you put it on the internet

Have you heard that Sue's expecting, Mark says 'cause Donna texted him
Chinese whispers and spies on mother care
Apparently he's off the wagon, he's been seen in the George and Dragon
Put your eyes back in don't ya know it's rude to stare

And all the decent people sleep in decent beds
In preparation for another day of decentness
If that's so decent then ill be something else

She's had a black one. She's had a white one. She's had a brown one
And Johnny reckons that he saw her in the chemist buying something for the weekend
I'm telling ya its true 'cause my cousin is her best friend

She's had a black one. She's had a white one. She's had a brown one
And Johnny reckons that he saw her in the chemist buying oral contraception
It can't be for her hubby 'cause he can't get an erection

    General CommentI think this song is started by this poem.

    the edge of cliffs feels all decayed,
    cos all the punters stay away,
    put off by negative reports,
    of lairy bastards, mucky shores,
    edge of cliffs filled terace houses,
    lie low lills, unfaithful spouses,
    dirty weekends by the sea,
    and stains on sheets in B&Bs,
    the sort of place you come to die,
    its fucking grim no wonder why,
    think i'll save you from the rest,
    even the seagulls theyre depressed

    General CommentI'm sure Sheila Jackson is a character in Shameless as well, and Kev too.
