Swanky Modes Lyrics

Again, a very quick run through:

There was a shop called "Swanky Modes"
??? the top of the ??? road
I walked past and recognised you
You screwed a guy then you killed him after
In a film I'd seen about a week before
Way way way back in the days of yore
Nothing could touch you or leave the slightest ???
You were just a girl, your hair was the same
Your face looked older and your clothes were grey
Working in a friend's shop, trying to keep the dream alive

I saw a guy shitting on ???
He didn't even ??? as the shoppers walked past
I thought I heard him say "How about you get on this?"
Yeah
Well how about you get on this?

I could resist gentrification
I can not resist temptation
You were carrying a basket
When it makes me ??? behind the counter of your shop ???
Surely you could miss your appointment
Try not to be one more disappointment
It turned out you lived above the shop and that's why you worked there

It was a very small flat with a very narrow kitchen
No need for further explanation
You sat down on the work surface
I got down to work up your surface
And I can't even get my breath
??? like heels on the back of my legs

Hey baby, well how about you get on this?
Well how about you get on this?

Well the ??? left marks, tried to brush them off
Tried to make tea but the milk was off
And I forgot my shopping in the rush to get home
In the days of VHS and casual sex

Where do ??? make drama?
So why don't you come home for tea?
I know you like a bit of rough and tumble
But you never left a mark on me

Some fell by the wayside
Some moved up to Teeside
Some still scoring cocaine
Some laid up with bad pain

Inside when your dreams have passed
There's things you do to make life go faster
Working on ???, working on ???

The next thing I heard, someone said you were dead
Someone bought ??? you fight to the death
??? try to keep the dream alive
You tried to keep life at a safe distance
But it's futile to offer resistance

So how about you get on this?
So how about you get on this?
How about you get on this?
How about you get on this?
How about you get on this?

Good effort. Some edits:

Just off the top of the Camden Road/I saw a guy shooting-up on a towpath/Didn't even look as the shoppers walked past (far be it from me to suggest Jarvis improves a lyric but I think "strolled" scans better there than "walked")/ I got down to work on your surface/ The toast/er(?) got on the back of my leg/ Some laid-up with back pain/Working on a master-plan/...set fire to the bed(?)/
