"Dirty Old Town" as written by and Ewan Maccoll....
I met my love
By the gasworks wall
I dreamed a dream
By the old canal
I kissed my girl
By the factory wall
Dirty old town
Dirty old town
Clouds are drifting
All across the moon
Cats are crawling all along the beat
There springs a girl from the streets at night
In this dirty old town
Dirty old town
Dirty old town
Dirty old town
I heard a whistle
Coming from the docks
I saw Jimmy Johnstone
Set the night on fire
I smelled the spring
On the smokey wind
In this dirty old town
Dirty old town
This dirty old town
Dirty old town
Dirty old town
Dirty old town
I met my love
By the factory wall
I dreamed a dream
By the old canal
I kissed my girl
By the factory wall
Dirty old town
Dirty old town
Dirty old town
Dirty old town
