The Stranglers - Down in the sewer
Down in the sewer
Picking up on a lot of empty Coca Cola cans
And there sure are a lot of them around here.
How did I get down here
Well it's a long story
I should have stayed down home out on the farm
And kept my tootsies warm
Instead of freezing them off down here.
There's lots of rats down here
You can see the whites of their eyes
They got sharp teeth
Deep breath, and lots of diseases
People say you shouldn't stay down here too long
Lose your sense of light and dark
Lose your sense of smell
I'll tell you what I'm gonna do
I'm gonna make love to a water rat or two
And breed a family
And they'll be called the survivors
You know why?
Because they're gonna survive
I'll see you in the sewer darling (and don't be late
