The Lyrics

There's a place procurers go
To ply their trade on Street K,
And we call it loathsome town,
Where the whoremongers stay
(Loathsome town).

You can buy this seamy crew;
Votes and more are for sale here,
And the price you're gonna pay
For either party's dear
(Very dear).

Gnomic clowns in loathsome town,
Where the 'ho's and tarts play.
Broken town of sold-out clowns;
With crimes these bums get away.

In this town, a horde-gelt team
Is out for all it can get.
Pay off clowns in loathsome town;
Lend them your private jet
(Private jet).

Baleful clowns in loathsome town--
Are they menace or threat?
(Loathsome town).
