Another song inspired by life in Newcastle but reminding me of attitudes in the countrytown where I grew up.

GIRLS IN OUR TOWN 

Bob Hudson

Girls in our town they just haven't a care
See them on Saturday floating on air  
Painting their toenails and washing their hair
Maybe tonight it'll happen.

Girls in our town leave school at fifteen
Work at a counter or behind a machine
Spend all their money on making the scene
And plan on going to England.

Girls in our town go to parties in pairs,
Sit round the barbeque, give themselves airs.
Go to the bathroom with a girlfriend who cares.
Girls in our town are so lonely.

Girls in our town are too good for the pill
But if you keep asking they probably will,
Perhaps they like you or just for the thrill,
And explain it away in the morning.

Girls in our town get no help from their men
No-one will let them be sixteen again
Things could get better but its hard to say when
If they only had someone to talk to.

Girls in out town can be saucy and bold
At seventeen, no-one is nicer to hold,
Then they start having kids and they start growing old,
Girls in our town, girls in our town.
