The House Of iII Repute Lyrics
I’ve lived hard and I’ve lived fast
Through times that have long past
I saw people come, saw people go
Who they were no-one knows

There is no row, there is no dispute
I can follow back my roots
Down that twisted route
Back to that House of Ill Repute

It’s like a tattoo in the center of my head
The words of which are best left unread
Coz they’ll tell you from where I came
And I’m never going back there again

No, you’d have to get me as drunk as a newt
Or drop me high from a parachute
Or lead me like Pied Piper blowing his flute
Back to the dark House of Ill Repute

Some may call me a Mongrel dog
Forever lost in the London fog
I’m trying to get as far as I can
But nothing goes according to plan

I’m not dumb and I ain’t mute
But my misery is absolute
Growing fat on forbidden fruit
Growing wild in the House of Ill Repute

All those years of standing still
Then fighting my way uphill
Finally reaching the top
Then crashing down in a belly flop
in a belly flop, in a belly flop

I can wear a tie and chequered suite
When the foot is on the other boot
I’d rather go to war torn Beirut
Then go back to the House of Ill Repute
Then go back to the House of Ill Repute
Then go back to the House of Ill Repute
Then go back to the House of Ill Repute
Growing wild in the House of Ill Repute

Paul Robert Thomas
