Lyrics

“Hey English”

We’d talk for hours
on rooftops and fire escapes,
sharing silk cuts
and following the smoke
make no mistake.
The one we’ve raised delivers
everything that’s right
about those early morning
St Mark’s nights.

Hey English they’d shout
All down Second Avenue
Hey English they’d shout
N’ bring you bikes and pretty things ( all kinds )
Hey English they’d shout
Check it out. Check it out
just to see you light up
Light up and smile

Now the fire in our stove
keeps our bodies warm
Through the driving rain
of January storms.
Born across the ocean
they must’ve done something right
to send you off to light up
this dark and dangerous life.

Hey English they’d shout
the roughest of the rough
Hey English they’d shout
All down Second Avenue
Hey English they’d shout
bring you bikes and pretty things ( all kinds )
Hey English they’d shout
Check it out.
Check it out.
just to see you
light up,
light up and smile.

Hey english
Light up
Light up and smile

Check it out.
