"Plaistow Patricia" as written by and Ian Robins/nugent Dury....
Arseholes, bastards, fucking cunts and pricks
Aerosol, the bricks
A lawless brat from a council flat - oh, oh
A little bit of this and a little bit of that - oh, oh
Dirty tricks

From the Mile End Road
To the match-stick Beacontree
Pulling strokes and taking liberties
She liked it best when she went up west - oh, oh
You can go to hell with your 'well, well, well' - oh, oh

Who said good things always come in threes?
Reds and yellows, purples, blues and greens
She turned the corner before she turned fifteen
She got into a mess on the NHS - oh, oh
It runs down your arms and settles in your palms - oh, oh

Keep your eyeballs white and keep your needle clean
Plaistow Patricia, Plaistow Patricia
Plaistow Patricia, Plaistow Patricia

Her tits had dropped, her arse was getting spread
She lost some teeth, she nearly lost the thread
She did some smack with a Chinese chap - oh, oh, oh
An affair began with Charlie Chan - oh, oh

Well, that was just before she really lost her head
Now she owns a showroom down the Mile End Road
And her outer garments are the latest mode
There's a Siamese cat in the council flat - oh, oh
The finest grains for my lady's veins - oh, oh

And when it gets out of order, she goes away for a bit
Plaistow Patricia, Plaistow Patricia
Plaistow Patricia, Plaistow Patricia
Plaistow Patricia, Plaistow Patricia
Ohh, go on, girl

    General CommentBrings back some mighty memories! My friends older brother was playing New Boots And Panties album when it was first released. I got a copy very quickly! I was into The Strangers at the time, and still, in 2018 these two bands still stand out, with New Boots what I call 'a perfect album', along with Rattus Norvegicus sharing that rare position (just my opinion). I still get the hairs on my neck standing when max out the amp, with these. God Bless em all, living, or dead, cos They've left us with music that will never die! - I then got into Bad Brains! - Too much for my punk mates, at that time, but I knew then that they would also have a very interesting musical development. - Ta to Gary Bushel, ex of Sounds magazine, for the Bad Brains plug! These bands never aged, like so many of the later 80's washouts! - U2 died after the ' I Will Follow' single! There's rock music, then there's Real Rock Music! - My sympathy to Joshua Tree listeners! - They've wasted a bit o time! - U2 did come out of it grinning, tho! Hee Hee! Steve.
