This song is supposed to reflect the area through the following:
1. This station is near the River Lea - an important waterway for industry in the past. The lyrics at the beginning are folk-ditty like; something a boater in years gone by might sing perhaps.
2. I used to get off here to get the train home after work. Often, particularly if I had a few drinks, I would visit the fast food eateries in the vicinity and regret it afterwards...


Down by the lock-side,
Silent as a dove.
Down by the lock-side,
There I found my love.

Stumbling up the stairs looking for somethings to eat,
A drunken whirl... can't find my feet.
Relieved to miss the train to Ponders End,
Kebab, fried chicken - Godsend.

(They always give me an extra wing at KCF because i'm polite. I guess that's unusual this time of night.)

Where to go?
Take things too far.
Can't say no,
'No wonder you're the size you are'

'What drink d'you want to have that with boss?'
Pepsi Max 'cause I like the taste 'cause.
Hide 'round the corner and stuff my face -
Gotta protect the shame-face.

(Everyday's like new years day around here... but unfortunately, by the evening I seem to forget everything.)

Where to go?
Take things too far.
Can't say no
'No wonder you're the size you are'

'Step closer, step closer - £3.95'
Everybody knows you're throwing your life away.
'Hey stupid, hey stupid - £3.95'
Everybody knows, you're making the same mistake twice.
