The Lyrics

Dedicated to Goths of London..being a cockney song it's spelled 'Goffs' here. Bauhaus, The Sisters (of Mercy) and Siouxsie Sue (of 'The Banshees') are all popular bands with Goths. Camden is an area of London popular with Goths. Underworld, Slimelight, Tenabrae nights The Ballroom and The Devonshire are all popular Goth pubs/clubs/gig venues in London. 'New Rocks' are the clumpy metal adorned boots beloved of Goths
Chim-Chiminny, chim-chiminny, chim-chim cheree,
A goff is as moody, as moody can be,
Chim-chiminny, chim-chiminny, chim-chim-cheroo,
Black lips and white make-up an' pointy boots too,
Bauhaus and the Sisters...and ol' Siouxsie Sioux.

Moochin' 'round Camden in a coat long an' black,
With some band's name painted in white on the back,
Underworld, Slimelight and Tenabrae Nights,
Hair all back combed to ridiculous heights,
And goff chicks in purple and black stripey tights.

Chim-Chiminny, chim-chiminny, chim-chim cheree,
A goff is as moody, as moody can be,
Chim-chiminny, chim-chiminny, chim-chim-cheroo,
The make up comes off if one rubs against you..
So they re-apply their lipstick with each trip to the loo.

Down at the Ballroom or Devonshire Arms,
Weighed down with crosses and occult silver charms,
Waving their arms as they slowly gyrate,
The bass up so loud that the walls all vibrate,
And the guys are all stick thin and the girls overweight

Chim-Chiminny, chim-chiminny, chim-chim cheree
A goff is as moody as moody can be,
Chim-chiminny, chim-chiminny, chim-chim-cheroo,
Outside the goff clubs you'll see them all queue
With New Rocks and piercings and loads of tattoos.

(sung slowly)

As the sun sets the goffs all come out,
The make up took ages, of that there's no doubt,
Wearing their shades long into the night,
The girls in their corsets all trussed up tight,
On the streets around Camden..
Cor! What a sight.

Chim-Chiminny, chim-chiminny, chim-chim cheree
A goff is as moody as moody can be,
Chim-chiminny, chim-chiminny, chim-chim-cheroo
Vampire films are what they love to view,
Plus Time Burton's "Nightmare' and " The Crow', too
