"Villiers Terrace" as written by and Ian Stephen/sergeant Mcculloch....
I've been up to villiers terrace
To see what's a-happening
There's people rolling 'round on the carpet
Mixing up the medicine
I've been up to villiers terrace
I saw what's a-happening
People rolling 'round on the carpet
Biting wool and pulling string
You said people rolled on carpet
But i never thought they'd do those things
I've been up to villiers terrace
I've been in a daze for days
I drank some of the medici-i-i-ine
And i didn't like the taste
I've been up to villiers terrace
I've been in a daze for days
People rolling 'round on your carpet
Biting wool and pulling string
You said people rolled on carpet
But i never thought they'd do those things
Been up to villiers terrace
To see what's a-happening
People rolling 'round on the carpet
Passing 'round the medicine
Been up to villiers terrace
I saw what's a-happening
There's people rolling 'round on my carpet
Biting wool and pulling string
You said people rolled on carpet, boys
But i never thought they'd do those things
Bopsie waddy waddy
Shake your money
(been down to villiers terrace.
Bopsie waddy waddy
Shake your money
(been down to villiers terrace)...
Bopsie waddy waddy
Shake your money
(been down to villiers terrace)...
Bopsie waddy waddy
Save your money
(been down to villiers terrace)...

    My InterpretationAFAIK, this is about visiting a drug den, including imagery of the bizarre behavior of the folk who are high, tripping, or zoned out on illegal recreational drugs.

    @lipslikesugarkisses: I think you’re getting 'Villiers Terrace’ mixed up with ‘All That Jazz’, both on the ‘Crocodiles’ album — it’s the latter that’s about the street-fighting lure of facism.

    General CommentWhat?! No comments?! This is one of their best - IMHO. Great imagery in the lyrics.

    General CommentI read the cover of Crocodiles, in which Ian Mcculloch explains what this song about. Basically, it's about the Nazis....I really wouldn't have guessed to be honest, but if that's what the artist says..!
