The greyhound's rocking out tonight 
To maximum rockabilly 
When two punks chose to risk the subway 
For a tube to Picadilly 
And the Zephrys stir fast gangs for glory 
Another dumb casualty 
Having fun 
In South West six 
When a hidden flick knife flicks 
Kiss me deadly tonight 

Another battle was won and lost 
Down The Bishops End last night 
Spotlights pick the kids in triumph 
With a thousand scarves in flight, see how they run 
Spring from the terraces in black and white 
Young and old into the fight 
Having fun 
In South West six 
With violence for a fix 
Kiss me deadly tonight 

Seven o'clock they stand in rank 
For the thirty bus uptown 
And later in a downstairs room 
She pulls her lover down 
In ecstacy but they can't make a sound 
Case her mother might come down 
Having fun 
In South West six 
Discovers teenage sex 
Kiss me deadly tonight 

The snooker hall is empty 
'Cause they're all out playing pool 
Hustling down the Fulham Road 
Doing deals with Mr.Cool 
They're on the waterfront now instead of school 
Too old now to dig pinball 
Having fun 
In South West six 
Having fun 
When a hidden flick knife flicks 
With violence for a fix 
Discovers teenage sex 
Tried shooting up for kicks 
Kiss me deadly 
Kiss me deadly 
Kiss me deadly 
Kiss me 
Kiss me tonight
