If you're feeling down depressed and lonely
I know a place where we can go
22 Acacia Avenue

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

If you're waiting for a long time for the rest to do their piece
You can tell her that you know me
And you might even get it free

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

Charlotte can't you get out from all this madness?
Can't you see it only brings you sadness?
When you entertain your men don't know the risk of getting disease

Some day when you're reach the age of forty
I bet you'll regret the days when you were laying
Nobody then will want to know
You won't have any beautiful wares to show, any more

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

Charlotte isn't it time you stopped this mad life
Don't you ever think about the bad times
Why do you have to live this way?
Do you enjoy your lay or is it the pay?

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

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

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 it's 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, you're coming with me

HARRIS, STEPHEN PERCY / SMITH, ADRIAN FREDERICK
