At the top of the High Street in the heart of the city
There's a shop that sells everything you need
They'll put glue in a bag they'll sell you individual fags
And you can learn to smoke before you can read

At the top of the High Street you can hear the sound of gunfight
Coming from the swings in the park
It's a Pot Noodle western and like that film with Charlton Heston
It's not safe to go out after dark

Bad blood is running through the pipes and the plumbing
And the whole town is down on its knees
In the heart of the city in the lungs and the kidneys
It feels like a fatal disease

On the grey streets of Goffam every family is a problem
Every road is too dangerous to cross
Every good guy's a baddie everybody is the daddy
Every child is neglected or lost

Bad blood is running through the pipes and the plumbing
And the whole town is down on its knees
In the heart of the city in the lungs and the kidneys
It feels like a fatal disease

The mayor of the city will be cosy and comfy
With the birds and the flowers and the trees
The mayor of the city lives in the country
Next door to the chief of police

The streetlights are broken and darkness is descending
The experimental curfew has begun
The cinema is closing and the swimming baths are empty
And the fun fair is purged of its fun

Bad blood is running through the pipes and the plumbing
And the whole town is down on its knees
In the heart of the city in the lungs and the kidneys
It feels like a fatal disease\\
