Scotland Yard

This song is by John Cale and appears on the album Shifty Adventures in Nookie Wood (2012).

When the hungry days are gone
Then came the hungry nights

Holding on to what you've got
Standing in the spotlight

They'll show you mostly
What they want you to see

Walking the city at midnight
And whistling in the dark

Many times you've been down there
And seen the mess they make
Putting on your party face
Occasionally it's fake

Sometime in the future
When you were carefully
Trying to do the right thing
And showing some discipline

Living, knowing you've done nothing wrong
Living, as if you've done something wrong
You knew it could happen
You knew that it would
You knew it could happen

Who's been causing problems
In the neighbourhood
Who's been breaking windows
Generally misunderstood

Living, living in Scotland Yard
Living, living in Scotland Yard
You knew it could happen
You knew that it would
You knew it could happen
You knew that it would

Living in, living in Scotland Yard
Living in, living in Scotland Yard
Living in - did the right thing
Living in Scotland Yard - in the end
Living in - did the right thing
Living in Scotland Yard - in the end
Living in - did the right thing
Living in Scotland Yard - in the end
