Kerb Crawling Song by Rubyfruit, late 70s
The Kerb Crawling Song by Rubyfruit
"We were all living in Balsall Heath at the time which may have been relevant because this song was all about kerb crawlers and it was:
“Underneath a street light waiting for a bus,
Along comes a creepy guy to have a look at us.
Come for a ride in my great big car, my place ain't far,
You really are desperate for a man, love, so and try your luck.
I told him very nicely just where he ought to go,
but he kept on persisting, he would not take a no.
I’ve got your number, you filthy swine, why don’t you climb back to the slime.
In case you hadn’t noticed, I’m happy on my own”.
That one never got performed because we never came up with a good third verse."
