I'm Staying in Soho 03:23
My Friends have all moved to the suburbs A semi detached in zone 6 I don't mean to speak ill of Grove Park or Herne Hill but I'm staying in Soho They say: "Sister Chain, Don't you think you could gain by a bargain or two down in petticoat lane?" I just turn up my nose and say: "hmm...do you suppose? well, I"m staying in Soho! " -"Brother John" - "yes, my dear" - "would you care for a beer at the elephant's trunk or the old eagle's ear?" - "But Camden's a fright! I've got plans for tonight: I'm staying in Soho" I'm staying here like a true brigadier I'll be holding the fort south of tottenham court road the masses may chance it in Fulham or Chelsea I'm Staying in Soho! - lookin' for business? - do you really speak French, my dear? a city spark called me and wanted to meet for after-work cocktails in Liverpool street but the FT was low so I just could not go Now I'm staying in Soho I'm staying here where a staggering King Lear smokes on the stairs of the old Gielgud theatre As he turns back for the play's final act he says: "I'M STAYING IN SOHO" - a rally in Hackney - Oh, ever so hackneyed - an opening in Shoreditch - I don't feel the shortage - a trip down the river? - the thought makes me shiver! I'm Staying in Soho I'm staying where I can be of some use where Japanese tourists are still on the loose the busses are red and punk is not dead and I'm Staying in Soho!
You will tell me the truth when I sit on top of you with a knife it goes in where I don't wanna look it comes out that's all I care about are you still laughing?
