Brixton Hill

It doesn’t get any better than this
Brixton Hill looking for a kiss
With every step my smile grows wide
Knowing that soon I’ll be inside

Walking up Brixton Hill, catching myself a thrill

Blood is dancing in my veins
Like a horse I need the reins
Hunger, hunger, deep and strange
Infects me now that I’m in range

My baby lives on Brixton Hill
I’m heading for her room
My lady lives on Brixton Hill
I’m gonna be there soon

Now I’m there and she’s so fine
Like some grape that’s on the vine
Sweet it feels to be within
Your room, your arms, your lips, your swing
