COSTAFINE TOWN (words: Robert J. Purvis and William Elliott; music: Robert J. Purvis)

Dirty old hole in the side of the road for the man who cleans the streets

Open pub doors where the working class goes at night

Written on walls where the cats never crawl for the glass along the top

Man, I was born there, I'm gonna walk right back


Costafine Town, it's a fine town, I'm coming home

I feel so lonely, I've been too long away

Costafine Town, it's a fine town, I'm coming home

I wish I'd never made up my mind to stray


Nobody owns all the dirty old clothes that are lying in the lane

Whistling loud, the four-thirty shift has gone

Little old man with a pole in his hand lighting lamps along the way

Hurry me back there, I wish I'd never gone


Costafine Town, it's a fine town, I'm coming home

I feel so lonely, I've been too long away

Costafine Town, it's a fine town, I'm coming home

I wish I'd never made up my mind to stray from...


Costafine Town, it's a fine town, I'm coming home

I feel so lonely, I've been too long away

Costafine Town, it's a fine town, I'm coming home

I wish I'd never made up my mind to stray


Costafine Town, it's a fine town, I'm coming home

I feel so lonely, I've been too long away

Costafine Town, it's a fine town, I'm coming home

I wish I'd never made up my mind to stray


Costafine Town, it's a fine town, I'm coming home...

COSTAFINE TOWN (words: Robert J. Purvis and William Elliott; music: Robert J. Purvis)
[Live on WXFM version]


Dirty old hole in the side of the road for the man who cleans the streets

Open pub doors where the working class goes at night

Written on walls where the cats never crawl for the glass along the top

Man, I was born there, I'm gonna walk right back


Costafine Town, it's a fine town, I'm coming home

I feel so lonely, I've been too long away

Costafine Town, it's a fine town, I'm coming home

I wish I'd never made up my mind to stray


Nobody owns all the dirty old clothes that are lying in the lane

Whistling loud, the four-thirty shift has gone

Little old man with a pole in his hand lighting lamps along the way

Hurry me back there, I wish I'd never gone


Costafine Town, it's a fine town, I'm coming home

I feel so lonely, I've been too long away

Costafine Town, it's a fine town, I'm coming home

I wish I'd never made up my mind to stray


Costafine Town, it's a fine town, I'm coming home

I feel so lonely, I've been too long away

Costafine Town, it's a fine town, I'm coming home

I wish I'd never made up my mind to stray
