    Song Lyrics / K / Kinks / Welcome To Sleazy Town Lyrics
    One hand on the controller
    One hand on the re-wind
    You can even watch it all in slow mo'
    'cos you just sit at home all day
    Now you got plenty of time

    If you want some real live action
    And the video's too tame
    If you wanna touch some heat
    But you don't know how to light that flame
    If you want some satisfaction
    Instead of studying the freeze frame

    I used to have this spot on main street
    It was bounding, it was hot
    It was dark, it was dirty
    But dull it was not
    The joint was jumping every night
    But now it's just a parking lot

    This city was cruel
    This city was keen
    This city was alive
    This city was mean

    Till the office blocks and parking lots
    Came and closed this city down
    I could stand outside
    The kids hung round
    And the neon sign said
    Welcome to sleazy town
    Welcome to sleazy town
    Sleazy, sleazy town

    Everybody hung loose
    It was cool and easy
    People used to meet and have a good time
    Down in sleazy town, sleazy town, sleazy town, sleazy town

    Then the corporations came along
    And bought this piece of ground
    The leases all went up
    And so the buildings all came down
    They built the motorways and shopping malls
    And they killed off sleazy town

    This city was cool
    This city was keen
    This city was alive
    This city was till the office blocks and parking lots
    Came and closed this city down
    I could stand outside, the kids hung round
    And the neon sign said
    Welcome to sleazy town
    Welcome to sleazy town, sleazy, sleazy town
    City hall killed off that scene
    Now sleazy town is just a dream
