excellent canadian garage track...

for the benefit of ylaski, i couldn't find a printed copy of lyrics but i think below is roughly right. if anyone can correct anything feel free. the odd word varies in versions and i'm sure i've heard an extra verse on one.

Walking down the street, on a foggy night...
Saw a young girl standing under a light...
Her face was pale and her skirt was tight...
Had a five dollar bill, I felt alright...

If I had my car, I would go for a drive...
I had no car but I had my five...
Walked over to her, said what's your name...
My names Mary Jane, I live down the lane...

I looked down the lane, at the end I could see...
A room full of clowns looking back at me...
A line of executives formed to the right...
And if I'd stayed, I would have stood all night...

She opened up the door, and said go on in...
I walked in first, pulled down the shades...
She said take it easy, don't be afraid...
You got nothing to lose, you're at a penny arcade...

This...is so fucking cool.
The drummer looks like the same kid who was tripping out of his mind at the Monterey Pop Festival 67', yesh?

I'd only heard The Chesterfield King's version before now.  I surmise this is the original version.  The C. Kings version is good but this is even better.  BTW, they have a Wikipedia page, The Haunted (Canadian Band).

The lyrics are tantalizing, and the beat is very groovy.
