There's a place that I know
Where only the poor people go
Every night from the door
You'll hear the sound of laughter
Until the sunrise comes

It's not fashionable, it's not chic
And when it rains the roof sometimes leaks.
The only light comes from the lamplight
Hanging from the rafters.

Until the sunrise comes
The drifters and the bums
Let down their hair and put the world to rights
Almost every night

It don't matter if you got no money
It's not the kind of place that you need bread
Come on, get yourself a taset of honey
Down at Uncle Belly's Leaning Shed

Four in the morning and the city slumbers
The office workers safely home in bed
Come on, get yourself a game of numbers
Down at Uncle Belly's Leaning Shed

If love's your thing bring a madam or a mister
If you're a wino bring a bottle of red
Prepare to share them with your brother and your sister
Down at Uncle Belly's Leaning Shed
