Song Meaning
Verse 1
My daddy got here on the gravy train
I guess my mama had a real bad start to the game
They went walking and she took his name
Round here
Verse 2
There was dancing in the afternoons those days
Waiting tables, chasing girls with the money he made
It was 1957, and love felt the same, love felt the same
Verse 3
Frightened little girl, she makes a break
Into the arms of, something better
Round here
Verse 4
I hear my mama call in Kingsbury Park
Just me and David and a football that glowed in the dark
Waiting patiently to make my mark
Round here
Verse 5
And I remember my first day at school
And I remember trouble, and thinking I was so cool
I remember it all, like yesterday
Verse 6
Don't you
Verse 7
Every time I try to leave this place
Something inside says, "You can do better"
Round here
Verse 8
So come with me, let me show you where I've lived
I want to put my hands in this earth again
Music fell like rain to the streets
The Specials and The Jam, to The Beat
Even though I think I've seen everything there is to see of this world
I gotta be thankful that this crowded space
Is the place of my birth
Verse 9
When all that I wanted, was to be someone.
Verse 10
Two little Hitlers in an old church hall
Some cheesy covers and those neighbors that banged on the walls
Andy says it's time to show them all
Round here
Verse 11
Please sir, we two have other plans
Please sir you would not understand,
What's going on
Is magical, can't you see
That some of us do more than dream
Verse 12
Every time I try to leave this place
Something inside says, "Keep on keeping, on and on...."
Around here
Verse 13
So come with me, let me show you where I've lived
I want to put my hands in this earth again
Music fell like rain to the streets
The Specials and The Jam, ABC
Even though I think I've seen everything there is to see of this world
I gotta be thankful that this crowded space
Is the place of my birth
Verse 14
My birth,
In this town,
Yes I guess I got to be someone
Verse 15
To be somebody
In the Beautiful city
Verse 16
This place I call home
These streets of London
It's everything I know (everything and everybody)
On the streets of London
I want to thank you
Verse 17
My daddy got here on the gravy train.
