Transmetropolitan  The Pogues

***Transmetropolitan - Shane MacGowan
from the album "Red Roses For Me"
Transmetropolitan - as perfomed by The Pogues
Intro |C |C |C |F |C |C |G |C ||
In the [C]rosy parks of England we'll [G]sit and have a [F]drink
Of [C]VP wine and cider 'til [F]we can hardly [G]think
And we'll [C]go where the spirits take us to [G]heaven or to [F]hell
And [C]kick up bloody murder in the [F]town we [G]love so [C]well
Going [C]transmetropolitan yip ay aye
From the [C]dear old streets of Kings Cross to the [F]doors of the IC[G]A
Going [C]transmetropolitan yip ay aye
We'll [C]drink the rat's piss kick the shite and [F]I'm not going [G]home tonight
yip ay [C]aye yip ay aye
From Brixton's lovely boulevards to Hammersmith's sightly shores
We'll scare the Camden Palace poofs and worry all the whores
There's lechers up in Whitehall and queers in the GLC
And when we've done those bastards in we'll storm the BBC
Going transmetropolitan yip ay aye
From Surrey Docks to Somers Town with a KMRIA
Going transmetropolitan yip ay aye
We'll drink the rat's piss kick the shite and I'm not going home tonight
yip ay aye yip ay aye
Inst ||:C G|C G|C G|F G C:||
From a five bob bet in William Hills to a Soho sexshop dream
From a fried egg in Valtaro's to a Tottenham Court Road ice cream
We'll spew and lurch get nicked and fixed on the way we'll kill and maim
When you haven't got a penny boys it's all the bloody same
Going transmetropolitan yip ay aye
From Pentonville Road on a sunset eve to the beauty that's Mill Lane
Going transmetropolitan yip ay aye
We'll drink the rat's piss kick the shite and I'm not going home tonight
yip ay aye yip ay aye
This town has done us dirty this town has bled us dry
We've been here for a long time and we'll be here 'till we die
So we'll finish off the leavings of blood and glue and beer
And burn this fucking city down every the summer of the year
Going transmetropolitan yip ay aye
From Arlington House with a two bob bit to the Scottish shores today
Going transmetropolitan yip ay aye
We'll drink the rat's piss kick the shite and I'm not going home tonight
yip ay aye yip ay aye yip ay aye
