Hope St. Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
There's a young boy in the queue
Not much else for him to do
He's had a drink, he's had a few
Down the pub on Hope Street
Verse 2
Dear old lady, you're looking thin
Got a shopping bag with your life in
Your old man's going through the bins
It's down and outs on Hope Street
Verse 3
Rain on me come pouring down
Clean the dirt off this old town
Tell the sun to come around
And show his face on Hope Street
Verse 4
There's a fight right down the street
The betting shop has got him beat
Blew his money for the week
On a horse called Hope Street
Verse 5
No old faces out today
Someone took them all away
Cleaning up or so they say
The dirty face of Hope Street
Verse 6
Rain on me come pouring down...
Everyday I look at you
Dressed up in your ties of blue
Saying there's not much you can do
To help the kids on Hope Street
Verse 7
They don't seem to even care
That it was you that put them there
You seem to think they like it there
Hanging out on Hope Street
Verse 8
Rain on me come pouring down...
