Up the Junction lyrics

Facebook “Up The Junction” is taken from Squeeze’s second album Cool for Cats, released as a single in May 1979 on limited edition vinyl and again the following year as a widespread single across Britain. The song was written by guitarist Chris Difford. He is rumoured to have been influenced by “Virginia Plain” by Roxy Music and the Bob Dylan song “Who Killed Davey Moore?”

I never thought it would happen
With me and the girl from Clapham

Out on the windy common
That night I ain't forgotten
When she dealt out the rations
With some or other passions

I said, "You are a lady"
"Perhaps," she said, "I may be"

We moved into a basement
With thoughts of our engagement
We stayed in by the telly
Although the room was smelly
We spent our time just kissing
The Railway Arms we're missing

But love had got us hooked up
And all our time it took up


I got a job with Stanley
He said I'd come in handy
And started me on Monday
So I had a bath on Sunday
I worked eleven hours
And bought the girl some flowers
She said she'd seen a doctor
And nothing now could stop her


I worked all through the winter
The weather brass and bitter
I put away a tenner each week to make her better
And when the time was ready
We had to sell the telly
Late evenings by the fire
With little kicks inside her

This morning at four-fifty
I took her rather nifty
Down to an incubator
Where thirty minutes later
She gave birth to a daughter

Within a year a walker
She looked just like her mother
If there could be another

And now she's two years older
Her mother's with a soldier
She left me when my drinking
Became a proper stinging

The devil came and took me
From bar to street to bookie
No more nights by the telly
No more nights nappies smelling


Alone here in the kitchen
I feel there's something missing
I'd beg for some forgiveness
But begging's not my business
And she won't write a letter
Although I always tell her
And so it's my assumption
I'm really up the junction
