Down in Albion

Just noticed this Deptford reference on The Babyshambles Albion, never saw Pete Doherty and Kate Moss walking down the Broadway but maybe I missed it:

Down in Albion
They're black and blue
But we don't talk about that
Are you from 'round here?
How do you do?
I'd like to talk about that
Talk over
Gin in teacups
And leaves on the lawn
Violence in bus stops
And the pale thin girl with eyes forlorn

Gin in teacups
And leaves on the lawn
Violence in dole queues
And the pale thin girl behind the checkout

If you're looking for a cheap sort
Set in false anticipation
Ill be waiting in the photo booth
At the underground station
Now come away, won't you come away
We can go to
Deptford, Digbeth, Tuebrook
Anywhere in Albion

He mentions Catford in that tune too don't forget. I'm sitting here in Se6 right now & it's actually quite sunny.
The alcoholics are shimmering.

Yes you're right, various versions of this but the album version does go 'So come away, won't you come away, We could go to... Deptford, Catford, Watford, Digberth, Mansfield, Ahh anywhere in Albion
