lyrics

Whole lotta love in my neighbourhood
A whole lotta people trying to do some good
But there’s a couple knuckle heads that has misunderstood The romance of the hood in every neck of the woods Butchers, bakers and house-breakers
Family men, drunks, poets and skaters
Corner girls, songsmiths and coppers
Crack dead, teachers and punk rockers
Many aint seen the countryside
Even though it’s only a 5 minute ride
On the buses it’s daylight robbery
Bristol was built with blood money
Got a whole lotta love for the TCF crew Keeping the city pretty since '92
Before the councillors saw the pound signs True graff writers went down for time
Gotta whole lotta new shiny shops
Pushing up the rent in the tower blocks
Come bin day why are the streets are awash with more rubbish than before?
Oh my gosh!
Litter bug thug show the street no love
Dog doo-doo in the park while I’m eating my lunch
Every night in the pubs
Sound-clash so bright
Skank-rock lock-in
Highflying the low life
Bass line bubble with the drumbeat
Weeds push up through the cracks in the concrete Sirens slur with song of birds
Fast food smoke burn the smell of herb
Some of the time it’s just dismal
With the dark and the grey and the drizzle but the sun came out now its blissful Summertime
I love Bristol

Babyhead Bristol, UK

Born out of love for Jamaican music, forged by a DIY punkrock ethic and delivered with raw hip hop swagger, the Babyhead sound is drawn, in true Bristol fashion, from all quarters of the musical universe.
