Jubilee Street
Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds Lyrics


On Jubilee Street there was a girl named Bee
She had a history, but she had no past
When they shut her down the Russians moved in
I am too scared, I'm too scared to even walk on past

She used to say
All those good people down on Jubilee Street
They ought to practice what they preach
Here they are to practice just what they preach
Those good people on Jubilee Street
And here I come up the hill
I'm pushing my wheel of love
I got love in my tummy and a tiny little pain
And a ten ton catastrophe on a sixty pound chain
And I'm pushing my wheel of love on Jubilee Street
Ah look at me now

The problem was she had a little black book
And my name was written on every page
Well a girl's gotta make ends meet
Even down Jubilee Street
I was out of place and time, and over the hill, and out of my mind
On Jubilee Street
I ought to practice what I preach
These days I go downtown in my tie and tails
I got a fetus on a leash

I am alone now, I am beyond recriminations
Curtains are shut, the furniture is gone
I'm transforming, I'm vibrating, I'm glowing
I'm flying, look at me now
I'm flying, look at me now

On Jubilee Street

There was a girl named Bee

She had a history

But she had no past

When they shut her down

The Russians moved in

I’m too scared, I’m too scared

To even walk on past

She used to say

All those good people

Down on Jubilee Street

They ought to practice what they preach

Those good people

On Jubilee Street

And here I come up the hill

I’m pushing my wheel of love

I got love in my tummy

And a tiny little pain

And a ten ton catastrophe

On a sixty pound chain

And I’m pushing

My wheel of love up Jubilee Street

Oh look at me now

The problem was

She had a little black book

And my name was written on every page

Well a girl’s got to make ends meet

Even down on Jubilee Street

I was out of place and time

And over the hill

And out of my mind

On Jubilee Street

I ought to practice what I preach

These days I go down town

In my tie and tails

I got a foetus on a leash

I am alone now

I am beyond recriminations

The curtains are shut

The furniture has gone

I am transforming

I am vibrating

I am glowing

I am flying

Look at me now

You should go to a nick cave and the bad seeds concert it’s a lot more spiritual than the science of losing weight.

We're in 2020, but this song is still a powerhouse of sonic and lyrical brilliance. Nick Cave and Co. continues to be a force of nature.

Pablo Isusi

Oh Warren´s violin entry at 2:19...always goosebumps….La Grande Bellezza. Qué canción más bonita.

Been dealing with a chronic health issue for some years now; the line: "a 10 ton catastrophe on a 60 lb chain" has some brutal authenticity to it.
