"From A Vauxhall Velox" as written by and Billy Bragg....
She said "Do these seats fold down"
I said "If you pull that handle"
All the time she'd been waiting for
Something with a little more
And all her mates on the new estates
Were walking out in confetti and sunshine

Her mother read her mail
And her Dad was a Policeman
Which I must say worried me
But some things have just got to be
So we passed very fast like ships in the night
Or cars in a contraflow system

Some people say love is blind
But I think that's just a bit short-sighted
Some people just want it now
It doesn't matter where or how
Satisfaction takes a second place
So long as they can get excited

    General CommentVauxhall - is an inner city area of Central London, and home to an ever-increasing number of gay bars and nightclubs. Hence Morrissey's "Vauxhall and I" album title.

    Velox - 1) An individual who's ability to bitch, whine and/or complain surpasses any others ability. 2)To find the most insignificant flaws in anything and cry foul.
