Skid Row (downtown) Songtext

Alarm goes off at seven and
You start uptown.
You put in your eight hours for the powers that have always been.
(Sing it, child.) Till it's five P.M.
Then you go
Downtown
Where the folks are broke.
You go down Downtown
Where your life's a joke.
You go downtown,
Where you buy your token you go
Home to Skid Row. (Home to skid row.)
Yes, you go
Downtown where the cabs don't stop.
Downtown where the food is slop.
Downtown, where the hopheads flop in the snow.
Down on Skid Row.
Uptown you cater to a million jerks.
Uptown you're messengers and
Mailroom clekrs
Eating all your lunches at the
Hot dog carts.
The bosses take your money and they break your hearts.
And uptown you cater to a million whores.
You disinfect terrazzo on their bathroom floors.
The job's are really menial. You'll make no bread.
And then at five o'clock you'll head (by subway) . . .
Downtown where the guys are drips.
Downtown where they rip your slips.
Downtown where relationships are no go.
Down on skid row. (Down on skid row).
Down on skid row. (Down on skid row).
Down on skid row. (Down on skid row).
Down on skid row.

Poor, all my life
I've always been poor.
I keep asking God what I'm for,
And he tells me "Gee, I'm not sure.
Sweep that floor, kid."
Oh, I started life as an orphan, a child of the street here on skid row.
He took me in, gave me shelter, a bed, crust of bread and a job.
Treats me like dirt. Calls me a slob, which I am.
So I live downtown.
That's your home address.
You live downtown
When your life's a mess.
You live downtown
Where depressions' jes' status quo.
Down on skid row.
Someone show me a way to get outa here,
'cause I constantly pray I'll get outa here.
Please, won't somebody say I'll get outa here.
Someone gimme my shot or I'll rot here.
Show me how and I will,
Downtown, there's no rules for us.
I'll get outa here.
I'll start climbin' uphill Downtown, 'cause it's dangerous.
And get outa here.
Someone tell me I still
Downtown where the rainbow's
Just a no show.
Could get outa here.
Someone tell lady luck
------------When you live
That I'm stuck here.
Gee, it sure would be swell downtown where the sun don't shine.
To get outa here,
Bid the gutter farewell Downtown past the bottom line.
And get outa here.
I'd move heaven and hell Downtown.
Go ask any wino. He'll know.
To get outa skid,
I'd do I dunno what Downtown.
To get outa skid,
But a hell of a lot Downtown.
To get outa skid,
People tell me there's not Downtown.---------Skid row.
A way outa skid,
But believe me, I've gotta
Get outa skid row.
