Artist: Madness
Albums: One Step Beyond... (1979)
Composers: Lee Thompson

Ooh, I didn't talk too much, in fact not at all
But to ask for the price, I was to be no fool
Money's no time to waste or to shoot up the wall
You got the know how, the place, teacher, take me to your school

She lead the way from the alley back to her house
Must not be seen going in, must not be seen coming out
She said, "I look mighty but thin"
She told me, "I'm gonna give you a second helping"

Ooh, Razor Blade Alley, I've been there
Razor Blade Alley, neither of us cared
It was the prime time, but the wrong place
It was my first time, I hope my last taste
I'm just too shy to check in
But this a-pain of pissing razors is cutting in

Ummmm, felt like a knight without shining armour on
At the time she thought she was in a dream, floating up on cloud nine
Now I wake, she is nowhere
But the razor cuts deeper everywhere
