Haircut 100 - Too Up, Two Down Lyrics




Two up two down terrace town, heading far away
Well I just deserted but I've seen that road before
Two up two down terrace town, roll on salad days
Well I'm a mighty lorne greene to mow
Oh oh! better let me grow
You're bringing me up, holding me down
The looks, the sighs and the frowns
So this time I'm on my own!
It's eyes down look in but don't you ever turn back
(Back to front in the back to backs) and it's no big deal
From a heartless jack
Who keeps cheating the cards
And splitting the deck
You're bringing me up, holding me down
The looks, the sighs and the frowns
So this time I'm on my own!
Just watch me go

Too up too down terrace town, numbing all the senses
Well I just left home but I've seen that porch before
Well, I'm too up too down terrace town, leaning on defences
But I'm a ruddy lorne greene to mow so now
You'd better let me grow
You're bringing me up, holding me down
Stick in the mud, face in the ground
So this time I'm on my own
Oh this time I'm on my own
Building you up
Pulling me down
Sick of the glares, the flair's and the browns
So this time I'm on my own
Oh this time I'm on my own.
Too up too down
Too up two down

Haircut 100 Too Up, Two Down Comments
  1. Autumn Hatfield

    so underrated :’)

  2. Grammar Nazi

    ahhh this song soothes my soul

  3. T Chris H

    The CD is finally being released, with a ton of extra stuff! :D https://www.cherryred.co.uk/product/paint-and-paint-deluxe-edition/

  4. Chris Valentine

    One of those great tracks that ought to be on cd. This is actually up there with the very best of their output.

  5. FrankChickens

    If there is a new album released it will be with Heyward and without Fox. The two still don't like each other as witnessed by the latter's non-appearance when the band did a few dates together.

  6. Gregor McIntyre

    you would have thought haircut 100 would want this work back in the public domain, especially as there are rumours of a new haircut 100 album sometime as well ...

  7. Gregor McIntyre

    this album really needs to be released on cd and also a 12inch singles cd as well

  8. FrankChickens

    The best we'll get from Cherry Red is the album plus possibly After It's All Been Said and Done as it'll be too expensive to include the mixes as well.

  9. Gregor McIntyre

    we need to get cherry red records to release this on cd and perhaps also another cd of all the extended versions!

  10. biffordmichael

    It was the best track on the album...I *think* I had a remix 12'' to this but I could be wrong...it's been A LONG time!

  11. FrankChickens

    You're welcome, glad you enjoyed it. :)

  12. kck303
