Lyrics:
At night I walk this stinkin' street˙
Past the crazies on my block˙
And I see the same old faces˙
And I hear that same old talk˙
And I'm searching for the latest thing˙
A break in this routine˙
I'm talkin' some new kicks˙
Ones like you ain't never seen˙
This is home˙
This is Meanstreet˙
It's our home˙
The only one I know˙
And we don't worry 'bout tomorrow˙
Cause we're sick of these four walls˙
Now what'd ya think is nothing˙
Might be something after all˙
Now you know this ain't no through street˙
The end is dead ahead˙
The poor folks play for keeps down here˙
They're the living dead˙
Come on down˙
Down to Meanstreet˙
They're dancing now˙
Out on Meanstreet˙
It's always here and now, my friend˙
It ain't once upon a time˙
It's all over but the shouting˙
I'll come and I'll take what's mine˙
We're searching for the latest thing˙
A break in this routine˙
Talkin' some new kicks˙
Ones like you ain't never seen˙
This is home˙
This is Meanstreet˙
It's our home˙
Only one I know˙
(This is home) See, a gun is real easy˙
(This is Meanstreet) In this desperate part of town˙
(This is home) Turns you from hunted into hunter˙
(This is Meanstreet) Go and hunt somebody down˙
(This is home) But hear me now, somebody said "Fair Warning, Lord !"˙
(This is Meanstreet) Lord, strike that poor boy down˙
