Girls In Our Town

Words and music: Bob Hudson

Leeds Music


Girls in our town havenít a care

See them on Saturdays, walking on air

Painting their toenails, washing their hair

Maybe tonight it will happen


Girls in our town leave school at fifteen

Work at the counter or behind the machine

Spend all their money on making the scene

And plan on going to England


Girls in our town go to parties in pairs

Sit round the barbecue - give themselves airs,

Go to the bathroom with a girlfriend who cares,

Girls in our town are so lonely


Girls in our town are too good for the pill

But if you keep asking, they probably will

Perhaps cause they like you or else for the thrill,

And explain it away in the morning.


Girls in our town get no help from their men

No-one can let them be sixteen again

Things could get better but itís hard to say when

If they only had someone to talk to


Girls in our town can be saucy and bold

At seventeen no-one is nicer to hold

But they start having kids, start growing old

Girls in our town, Girls in our town.
