Lyrics Avenues and Alleyways

Sleep like a baby
My little lady
Dream 'till the sunrise
Creeps into your eyes dream 'till the sunrise turns on the day
In the avenues and alleyways while you sleep there's a whole world comin' alive
Abel and his brother fight with one another in and out of every dive
The avenues and alleyways where the strong and the quick alone can survive
Look around the jungle see the rough and tumble listen to a squealer cry
Then a little later in the morning paper read about the way he died
Wake up my pretty
Go to the city
Stay through the daytime
Safe in the sunshine stay till the daytime turns into night
In the avenues and alleyways where a man's gotta work out which side he's on
Anyway he chooses chances are he looses no one gets to live too long
The avenues and alleyways where the soul of a man is easy to buy
Everybody's wheelin' everybody's stealin' all the low are living high
Every city's got 'em can we ever stop 'em
Some of us have gotta try
