Chelsea
Lyrics
Chelsea takes her love to town,
waits beneath the bridge,
sells it to some married man
who says his name is Dick, god help us!
Chelsea needs to feed her child,
feed her habit too - sweet needle!
Leaves Matilda with a friend,
shoots her way to neverland,
blows old Dick away.

Tilda finds her mother gone,
spreadeagled on the bed
- too much bliss can kill a soul,
the lady doctor says (I'm sorry!),
I can't help your mummy now,
she's gone to heaven's rest (sweet Jesus!),
but Uncle Dave will be here soon,
it's going to be ok my dear,
you won't be all alone...

Uncle Dave has Tilda now,
spreadeagled on the bed,
dressed in her mother's working clothes,
you're Chelsea now, he says, sweet thirteen!
And if you're feeling bad my love,
then I have just the thing - sweet needle -
to make your troubles go away;
your uncle has a cure for this,
old Dave has got a cure...

So, Chelsea takes her love to town,
and waits beneath the bridge,
and sells it to some married man
who says his name is Dick, god help us!
Chelsea needs to feed her child,
feed her habit too - sweet needle!
Leaves her baby with a friend,
shoots her way to neverland,
blows old Dick away.
