​Wrong Side Of The Tracks

This song is by Hugh Cornwell and appears on the album Hooverdam (2008).

I got pretty good teeth
I've got a smile underneath
On a mission to please one and all
'Cause I'm from the wrong side of the tracks
Got a talent or two
For getting out of a stew
When they got me backed up to the wall
'Cause I'm from the wrong side of the tracks

Turn my face to the wall
I don't belong here at all
I'm any port in a squall
It's a matter of fact
I'm wrong side of the tracks

I know what to say
When conversation's in play
I know the words to parlez at the ball
But I'm from the wrong side of the tracks
I read all the books
I got a dose of good looks
In a crisis I know who to call
But I'm from the wrong side of the tracks

Turn my face to the wall
I don't belong here at all
I'm any port in a squall
It's a matter of fact
I'm wrong side of the tracks

I hear what you say
And I'll be gone here today
I booked a berth on a plane in the tail
'Cause I'm from the wrong side of the tracks
And I will send you a card
Or telephone from afar
To let you know when they put me in jail
'Cause I'm from the wrong side of the tracks

Turn my face to the wall
I don't belong here at all
I'm any port in a squall
It's a matter of fact
I'm wrong side of the tracks
