The Lyrics

STREET LIGHTING!

Well this bar is problematic, it's not ecstatic, nor charismatic,
There’s no street lighting!

We need to get the local council to splash out on some lights, oh yeah,
Keep walkin', just keep walkin'
Danger’s all around us, especially at night, oh yeah,
We’ll get the lighting, we’ve got to get the lighting.
Though the council claims it’s poor, we’ll be knocking on their door,
It’s enough to make you spit but we’re never goin’ to quit for street lighting.

No street lighting, you’re needed for a quarter mile.
Street lighting, no street lighting.
No street lighting, to have it makes it all worthwhile.
Street lighting, no street lighting.
It’s not a dream, the people all scream for street lighting.

We need to make more improvements with benches and seats, oh yeah,
A modern looking pub and a place to get some eats, oh yeah.
Get the council off their bums, we can then see what comes,
The place will be much better, when we know we’re goin’ to get some street
lighting.

No street lighting, you’re needed for a quarter mile
Street lighting, no street lighting.
No street lighting, to have it makes it all worthwhile,
Street lighting, no street lighting.
It’s not a dream, the people all scream for street lighting.

Excellent - a few very minor pacing issues but a lovely title substitution idea, well-executed.
