They have this stupid street party every year

Everyone there dresses the same and has no style

There isn’t enough jerk chicken

You can’t get a decent breakfast anywhere

It’s not even cheap anymore

There aren’t enough independent shops

There’s no history in Brixton

So what if Van Gough lived here too

The cinema is too big
