Matchstalk Men And Matchstalk Cats And Dogs Lyrics

He painted Salford's smokey tops
On cardboard boxes from the shops
And parts of ancoats where I used to play
I'm sure he once walked down our street
Cause he painted kids who had nowt on their feet
The clothes we wore had all see better days
Now they said his works of art were dull
No room all round the walls are full
But Lowry didn't care much anyway
They said he just paints cats and dogs
And matchstalk men in boots and clogs
And Lowry said that's just the way they'll stay

And he painted matchstalk men and matchstalk cats and
dogs
He painted kids on the corner of the street that were
sparking clogs
Now he takes his brush and he waits outside them
factory gates
To paint his matchstalk men and matchstalk cats and
dogs

Now canvas and brushes were wearing thin
When London started calling him
To come on down and wear the old flat cap
They said tell us all about your ways
And all about them Salford days
Is it true you're just an ordinary chap

And he painted matchstalk men and matchstalk cats and
dogs
He painted kids on the corner of the street that were
sparking clogs
Now he takes his brush and he waits outside them
factory gates
To paint his matchstalk men and matchstalk cats and
dogs

Now Lowry's hang upon the wall
Beside the greatest of them all
And even the Mona Lisa takes a bow
This tired old man with hair like snow
Told northern folk its time to go
The fever came and the good lord mopped his brow

And he left us matchstalk men and matchstalk cats and
dogs
He left us kids on the corner of the street that were
sparking clogs
Now he takes his brush and he waits outside them pearly
gates
To paint his matchstalk men and matchstalk cats and
dogs

And he left us matchstalk men and matchstalk cats and
dogs
He left us kids on the corner of the street that were
sparking clogs
Now he takes his brush and he waits outside them pearly
gates
To paint his matchstalk men and matchstalk cats and
dogs

And he left us matchstalk men and matchstalk cats and
dogs
He left us kids on the corner of the street that were
sparking clogs
Now he takes his brush and he waits outside them pearly
gates
To paint his matchstalk men and matchstalk cats and
dogs

And he left us matchstalk men and matchstalk cats and
dogs
He left us kids on the corner of the street that were
sparking clogs
Now he takes his brush and he waits outside them pearly
gates
To paint his matchstalk men and matchstalk cats and
dogs
