#1.
Am                        C     G    Dm
There's a crack up in the ceil..ing, and the kitchen 
        F     Am
sink is leak..ing.
Am                     C    G                      
Out of work and got no mon..ey, a Sunday joint of bread 
    F    Am
and hon..ey.

CHORUS:
Am                      G  F                           E
What are we living for?....Two-roomed apartment on the second floor.
Am                 G  F                              E
No money coming in....the rent collector's knocking, trying to get in.
A                                Dm         E
We are strictly second class, we don't understand...
 Am             F               Am       G
(Dead end!) why we should be in dead end street.
 Am         F                    Am       G
(Dead end!) people are living in dead end street.
 Am             F            Am       G
(Dead end!) I'm gonna die in dead end street.
C        F              C        F
Dead end street (yeah!) Dead end street (yeah!)

#2.
Am                   C       G  Dm                       F     Am                    
On a cold and frosty morning....wipe my eyes and stop me yawn..ing.
Am                     C      G  Dm                        F     Am
And my feet are nearly frozen....boil the tea and put some toast on.

CHORUS:#2.
Am                      G  F                           E
What are we living for?....two-roomed apartment on the second floor.
Am                    G  F                             E
No chance to emigrate....I'm deep in debt and now it's much too late.
A                                Dm            E
We both want to work so hard..we can't get the chance...
 Am         F              Am       G
(Dead end!) people live in dead end street.
 Am         F                   Am       G
(Dead end!) people are dying on dead end street.
 Am         F            Am       G
(Dead end!) gonna die on dead end street.
C        F              C        F
Dead end street (yeah!) Dead end street (yeah!)
