When you're alone and life is making you lonely
You can always go
To Kemp Town
Maybe you know some little places to go to
Where they never close
In Kemp Town
You can go up Edward Street
Or straight along the seafront
But if you choose St. James's Street
You can't drive back the same route
It's only one way.
You'll know when you have arrived
You can immediately feel that bohemian vibe
You're in Kemp Town
The Marina is very near
And fabulous Sussex Square
They've never heard of drugs there.
If you're a man who likes an all-over suntan
There's a nudist beach
If you're a chap who likes a bloke up his backside
There a place to meet
Kemp Town has fantastic pubs
The Rock and there's The Bristol
And lots of little bijou restaurants
Have you ever been to
The Café du Paris?
I pray to break both my legs
So I can lay in a Royal Sussex Hospital bed
That's in Kemp Town
Who knows where Kemp Town is?
And Whitehawk begins
It's Kemp Town
