lyrics

Ruby street smells like roast lamb tonight
Sons daughters and curtains lit by TV light
Yeh Ruby Street smells like roast lamb tonight
Dad’s on their way home, everything’s alright
And my bicycle squeaks to the tune of a song
Plastic bags flapping, puling me home
Yeh Ruby Street smells like roast lamb tonight


Sundays the saddest day of the week
Cold commerce, warm spirit at midnight they meet
Yeh Sundays the saddest day of the week
The coals been burnt and its just dust and steam
But the week it keeps pulling, despite my protest
No time for discussion, no thumping of chests
Yeh Sunday’s the saddest day of the week


Nights a tough city if your days traffic jammed
There's nowhere to park or to start well laid plans
Nights a tough city if your days traffic jammed
Stuck trapped and idle in your own concrete can
But the morning's for hopers, blank canvas to fill
It can only get better, and better it will
