Suburbia rewrite: The Medway Towns Karaoke

The Medway Towns, where you’ll never find utopia

Where you’ll never find utopia…

Lost in the high street, where the dogs run

Roaming Gillingham boys

Mother’s little helper on her tongue

She says they’re her only joys

Sat in a bus stop with a Stella

Cold and not looking too well

And in the distance a police car

To hide the homeless in cells

Let’s take a ride and run with the dogs tonight in the Medway Towns

We don’t hide we’re busting more shots tonight in the Medway Towns

Bust a new shot by McDonalds

Listen! A siren screams

That’s a bait car, no I don’t tick

And most don’t know what it means

Let’s take a ride and run with the dogs tonight in the Medway Towns

You can’t hide we’re busting more shots tonight in the Medway Towns

(Instrumental break)

I never wanted something else to do but doss around

There is no work so I’ll just deal some weed and doss around

Let’s take a ride and run with the dogs tonight in the Medway Towns

You can’t hide we’re busting more shots tonight in the Medway Towns

It’s (not) on the front page of the papers

The information we need

Where’s a policeman when you need one

You call but they don’t take heed

Let’s take a ride and run with the dogs tonight in the Medway Towns

We don’t hide we’re busting some shots tonight in the Medway, in the Medway, in the Medway Towns

The Medway Towns, where you’ll never find utopia

What kind of dream was this so easy to destroy?

And why are we to blame for the sins of the council?

The scum of the future?

The Medway Towns, where you’ll never find utopia

The Medway Towns, where you’ll never find utopia
