Jubilee Street (Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds)

On Jubilee Street there was a girl named Bee She had a history but she had no past When they shut her down the Russians moved in Now I'm too scared, I'm too scared to even walk on past She used to say all those good people down on Jubilee Street They ought to practice what they preach Yeah they ought to practice just what they preach Those good people on Jubilee Street And here I come up the hill, I'm pushing my wheel of love I got love in my tummy and a tiny little pain And a 10 ton catastrophe on a 60 pound chain And I'm pushing my wheel of love up Jubilee Street Ah, look at me now The problem was she had a little black book And my name was written on every page Well a girl's got to make ends meet even down on Jubilee Street I was out of place and time and over the hill and out of my mind On Jubilee Street I ought to practice what I preach These days I go downtown in my tie and tails I got a foetus on a leash I am alone now I am beyond recriminations Curtains are shut Furniture has gone I'm transforming I'm vibrating I'm glowing I'm flying Look at me now I'm flying Look at me now
