Roger Campo - Streets Of The City lyrics

Streets of this city
I been walking the streets of this citySeen the boys fighting to be men Seen the girls walking like ladiesFoolish children trying to pretend
These streets will take you over Take your mind, take controlTeach you to fight, teach you to stealTeach you sex, drugs and rock n roll
Out on the street You learn to fight to get the things you can't reachOut on the streets of this city Out on the streets of this cityOut on the street You learn the things that your momma just can't teachOut on the streets of this city Out on the streets of this cityBut the story that's seldom toldPeople fighting to save their soul
Growing up on the streets of this cityThere's a language that you learn speakThere's a judge, and a juryThere's a law written in concrete
Somewhere out on the streets of this city
There's two kids trying to rise aboveAbove the streets, up on the roofThey put their faith in each other's love
Out on the street Is where a boy and a girl and their love will meetOut on the streets of this city Out on the streets of this city Out on the street You learn to love hard and love deepOut on the streets of this city Out on the streets of this cityBut the story that's seldom toldTwo kids fighting to save their soul
All alone this girl must decideDecide if she will keepThis child born from the lust and the sweatAnd the blood of these streetsShe?s heard those bullets flyShe?s seen her lover dieShe?s heard his momma cryWhy, why, why, why, why
Out on the streetOut on the streets of this city
