Downtown Bohemian Slum lyrics
Downtown Bohemian Slum
Seb: Hey, I got a surprise for you .
Tom: No, no, I don’t like surprises.
Seb: Lucy’s coming here
Seb: She will love you
Tom: I somehow doubt that
Seb: Why so gloomy’ Listen roomy, just hold steady and get ready.
I have a hunch .. she’s coming for brunch. I should
have bought more furniture, Does she know what’s in store
The kitchen’s a disaster. There’s mildew on the floor,
Ok, it’s rundown, at least it’s mine. It’s all that I’ve become
So welcome my dear Lucy, to my downtown, Bohemian Slum
Now some would say, a man my age, shouldn’t be this poor
An artist who is starving, should be like 24
But there are no rats, just a mouse
I watched him steal a crumb
I find there is joy here Lucy, in my downtown, 4 flights, Bohemian Slum
I parked my car, I hope it’s safe. I bravely made it here.
His doorway reeks of urine. His neighbors smell like beer
Now take a deep breath, just stay calm, and smile at that nice bum
I’m pride I finally made it, to his downtown, 4 flight, walk up Bohemian Slum
Ok I’m trapped, I’ll tell the truth. I’ll just say, Lucy dear
I moved in with your lover, and he thinks that I’m queer
We’ll have a laugh, no we won’t
No wonder I feel numb. My life will soon be over
In this downtown, 4 flights, walk up, fuck me, Bohemian Slum
Now she’ll come and look about; I just hope she’ll believe
That squalor can be charming; and dirt has ‘joix de vive’
I should have swept up, cleaned the sink
Washed off all the scum. Oh god, please like it Lucy
It’s my Downtown. 4 flight, walk-up Bohemian Slum
It’s my Downtown. 4 flight, walk-up fuck me Bohemian Slum
Come on up Lucy!
