Squeeze "Up the junction"

Grupo/Interprete: Squeeze
 Canción: Up the junction
 Disco: Cool for the cats (1979)
 Estilo: New Wave

"Cool for the Cats" es el segundo disco (y uno de los mejores) de esta banda londinense y Up the function es una de las mejores canciones del disco. Se ve claramente la influencia de The Beatles y The Kinks, algo que  Chris Diffort y Glenn Tilbrook nunca han negado. New wave londinense ahora que está de moda Londres y la música británica, después de la ceremonia de apertura de los JJOO

I never thought it would happen
with me and the girl from clapham
out on the windy common
that night i ain't forgotten
when she dealt out the rations
with some or other passions
i said “you are a lady”
“perhaps” she said. “i may be”
We moved in to a basement 
with thoughts of our engagement
we stayed in by the telly 
although the room was smelly
we spent our time just kissing
the railway arms we're missing
but love had got us hooked up
and all our time it took up
I got a job with stanley
he said i'd come in handy
and started me on monday
so i had a bath on sunday
i worked eleven hours
and bought the girl some flowers
she said she'd seen a doctor 
and nothing now could stop her
I worked all through the winter 
the weather brass and bitter
i put away a tenner each week to make her better
and when the time was ready 
we had to sell the telly
late evenings by the fire
with little kicks inside her
This morning at four fifty 
i took her rather nifty 
down to an incubator
where thirty minutes later
she gave birth to a daughter
within a year a walker
she looked just like her mother
if there could be another
And now she's two years older
her mother's with a soldier
she left me when my drinking
became a proper stinging
the devil came and took me
from bar to street to bookie
no more nights by the telly
no more nights nappies smelling
Alone here in the kitchen
i feel there's something missing
i'd beg for some forgiveness 
but begging's not my business
and she won't write a letter
although i always tell her
and so it's my assumption 
i'm really up the junction
