The Church Street Choir

Rock & Roll
Busker
On a battered Les Paul
No juice like
Just played acoustic
Down Church Street
Just past WH Smith's
For a couple of pence
He would take requests
I always wanted
"sumthin by the Sex Pistols"
It was my age y'see
1976 and 13 years old
"Sod off!" he snarled
And the backbeat of Johnny B Goode
Followed me all the way home.
