about

One could encounter just about anything or anyone on Collingwood’s beautiful freak, Smith Street.

lyrics

Midday on a Thursday, on smith st Collingwood
Im retracing my steps through the wayward old neighbourhood
The corner’s looking lonely, mob’s not out today
The talk in the post office is of the moon last night
And how it bought the crazies
This whole towns fucking crazy
 
No it’s not the kind of place where you whisper
Oh no it’s not the kind of place where you whisper
 
Im walking past the park bench see the crazy drunk Irishman
He looks at me and screams “hey girl, you ever been to Galway?”
Well what a girl to say
I said of course I been to Galway
I’ve been to Dublin, to Cork and all the way back to Galway bay
 
No it’s not the kind of place where you whisper
Oh no it’s not the kind of place where you whisper
It's the kind of place where you scream it out red faced
With that taste in your mouth
That taste in your mouth
And that stain on your blouse
 
So I sit down on the park bench and ask ”are you homesick?”
He said “ill spit this out real quick, I need I need a woman’s perspective”
“OK you’ll have to be more clear you see, a woman’s perspective, the concepts just endless”
I turn to go he grabs my hand
His name is Frank he says
“and her name is Maggie and I love her”
 
I said “I’ll spread the word”
Guess I’ll be late for work
 
No it’s not the kind of place where you whisper
Oh no, it’s not the kind of place, where you whisper
It's the kind of place where you scream it out red faced
With that taste in your mouth
That taste in your mouth
And that big ugly stain on your blouse
 
Many moons ago I lived above he pub down the road
Fewer moons ago I lived below the road
Underground
Trying to cut out some sound
 
But it’s not that kind of place
