One of the few songs you are likely to hear about an estate agent.


Clean spring jet of a sprinkling hose
Along Milsom Heights
Soaks me wet as a jet pops under the skyline
Lamplight bulb has imploded
Darkening Milsom Heights
A knee-jerk reaction is unwise

Milsom Heights! Milsom Heights!
Milsom Heights...........

Old girl waving at no-one
Walking up Milsom Heights (walking up….walking up)
They all blank her and never thank her
She's not fine (walking up….walking up)
But she fights on like a dog to make it
In withering tights (withering tights…..)
A young buck's aggression is her prize


Would you find these same delights
In a bungalow on Elspeth Row....?
[You’ll make a packet from the sale,
You can trust me….you can trust me
You can TRUST me!]

Buy to let in a recessed jungle
On Milsom Heights
It won't be gloomy, the loft is roomy
And lagged right
Ease your debt and consolidate
Along Milsom Heights
The neighbours will not be a hard time

Chorus ---------La, lo-di-oh, la-dn-da (rpt)
