The Old Main Drag - The Pogues

I When first came to London I was only sixteen


With a fiver in my pocket and my ole dancing bag


I went down to the dilly to check out the scene


And I soon ended up on the old main drag


There the he-males and the she-males paraded in style


And the old man with the money would flash you a smile

In the dark of an alley you'd work for a five

For a swift one off the wrist down on the old main drag


In the cold winter nights the old town it was chill

But there were boys in the cafes who'd give you cheap pills


If you didn't have the money you'd cajole or you'd beg


There was always lots of tuinol on the old main drag


One evening as I was lying down by Leicester Square

I was picked up by the coppers and kicked in the balls

Between the metal doors at Vine Street I was beaten and mauled

And they ruined my good looks for the old main drag

In the tube station the old ones who were on the way out


Would dribble and vomit and grovel and shout


And the coppers would come along and push them about

And I wished could I escape from the old main drag


And now I'm lying here I've had too much booze


I've been spat on and shat on and raped and abused

I know that I am dying and I wish I could beg


For some money to take me from the old main drag
