Song lyrics

[Verse 1: Damon Albarn  & (Graham Coxon)]
What do you got?
Mass produced in somewhere hot
You'll have to go on the Underground
To get things done here
(And then you have to see)...

Lonesome Street

Blur


[Verse 1: Damon Albarn & (Graham Coxon)]
What do you got?
Mass produced in somewhere hot
You'll have to go on the Underground
To get things done here
(And then you have to see)
If you need a yellow duck, service done
This is a place to come to, or, well, it was
Another hot spot, oh, oh
Crossing on the guillotine

[Chorus: Damon Albarn]
And if you have nobody left to rely on
I'll hold you in my arms and let you drift
It's got to be that time again
And June, June will be over soon again

[Verse 2: Damon Albarn & (Graham Coxon)]
So get yourself up, get a pass glitch on your way
It's nothing to be ashamed of
Taking off again
The 5:14 to East Grinstead
(You've sent me off)
And we go up, up, up, up, up
Coursing on our greatest night
And talking types will let us down again
Talk, talk on your arse all night

[Verse 3: Graham Coxon]
You wanna be there
Step inside the tarmac ride
To the land that crime forgot
Oh, just don't go there
Cracks inside the tarmac ride
To the land that crime forgot, oh no

[Chorus: Damon Albarn]
And if you have nobody left to rely on
I'll hold you in my arms and let you drift

[Verse 4: Damon Albarn]
Going down to Lonesome Street, ooh-ooh
Going down to Lonesome Street, ooh-ooh

Lonesome Street, ooh-ooh
Going down to Lonesome Street, ooh-ooh
Lonesome Street, ooh-ooh
Lonesome Street, ooh-ooh
Going down to Lonesome Street, ooh-ooh

"Lonesome Street" Track Info



“Lonesome Street” is the third single from Blur's album The Magic Whip.

Describing the track to NME, Graham explained:

There's a definite familiarity with that song. We weren't in uncharted waters with it, we were well within the realms of the Blur world. It's got that cheeky-sounding vocal of Damon's, that perverse nursery-rhyme feel, and it all sounds a bit like you're careening through a night of chaos. When I was listening back to it with Stephen, I thought, ‘Why not go the whole hog and have a really Syd Barrett-y middle-eight in there?‘ So I wrote another section for it, which is about the way you seem to ride the tarmac in Hong Kong: you stand on the road, you don't move, and it'll take you anywhere you want to go. It's a very lighthearted way to start the record."

The music video was released on Blur's YouTube channel on April 2nd, 2015 and it was directed by Ben Reed.
