1. meet a lady that I know
   So if you're looking for a good time
   And you're prepared to pay the price
   Fifteen quid is all she asks for
   Everybody's got their vice

   So any time you're down the East End 
   don't you hesitate to go
   You can take my honest word for it 
   she'll teach you more than you can know

22, the avenue that's the place where we all go
You will find it's warm inside the red light's burning bright tonight

   Don't you ever think about the bad times
RIFF D
   Why do you have to live this way
   Do you enjoy your lay or is it the pay
RIFF C

RIFF C
6. Sometimes when your strolling down the avenue
   The way you walk it make men think of having you
RIFF D
   When you're walking down the street
   Everybody stops and turns to stare at you
RIFF C

Chorus





I will continue some other time...





Beat her mistreat her do anything that you please
Bite her excite her make her get down on her knees
Abuse her misuse her she can take all that you've got
Caress her molest her she always does what you want

You're running away don't you know what you're doing
Can't you see it'll lead you to ruin
Charlotte you've taken your life and you've thrown it away
You believe that because what you're earning
Your life's good don't you know that you're hurting
All the people that love you don't cast them aside
All the men that are constantly drooling
It's no life for you stop all that screwing
You're packing your bags and you're _coming_ with me
