See that man going in the bank with a blue suit He's carrying a bag full of very important paper There's old Mac trying to busk with his new flute Did you read about the Cambridge raper? |D5 Street in the city Street in the city on a working day Street in the city Street in the city on a working day Those girls pass every day They seem to think to I'm funny It's just a game that they're playing Till they can claim their personal man Gonna lean back on my wall and pray for her knickers to fall See that woman with a bun in her hair Don't she know that's ain't still done anywhere? See that man going in the Wig and Pen He was charged with telling lies again
