Sad Story
by Lulla HF & Lo-Fi Lenny

As heard on the TikTok Graffiti Trend!

A beautiful mellow, jazz rap summer beat married to a sinister and mysterious story-telling rap
lyrics
English summer in a small town
Hosepipe ban and they’re struggling to cool down
Late morning take a leisurely stroll
Dog tryna see how far ahead he can go
Left down the cycle path takes them through the underpass
Talking bout travel wondering how long will the summer last?
Maybe they should do a bit more shopping for their holiday,
been ages since they’ve gone away
One of them’s lost lots of weight
We should have a bbq, mum can bring your brothers kids
Last time they was loving it, trampoline and curry chips
Sudden stop, something caught the other unexpectedly
Dogs by the water sniffing what looks like a pair of jeans
a closer inspection, caught the attention shrieks from the shock as they stood there in horror
One grabs a phone, the other pulls the dog back
Not what you expect on a Sunday

Down by the canal
A body’s been found
Two young lovers found it lying on the ground

He stopped a moment to admire the graffiti
Wondered what it took to do them lines so neatly
The artist must’ve wrote that tag a million different times
Colours and designs
Dedication one must find
It irked him that some still considered this a crime
When endless exposure to adverts is fine
A world of injustices that always disgusted him
But still, a walk down the canal was so comforting
Clear the head, stretch the legs
On the way back fetch some eggs
Lovely bit of brunch before the footie kicks off
Suddenly, behind him, he thought he heard a cough
As he turned around, something forceful struck him
Caught him off guard, too quick for him to duck it
Blinded by the blow but he knew that he was bleeding
Talk of the town that evening

Down by the canal
A body’s been found
Two young lovers found it lying on the ground
