lyrics

Going down to the city, gonna have a ball;
Going down to the city where the rich folks are;
Try my luck in the city - sidewalks paved with gold-
But check before you sign your name or you might sell your soul.

Going down to the city, see the pretty sights;
Going down to the city where the rules ain't right;
(Cuz) life seems a little better with some extra on the side,
but sleep with one eye open, or you'll find how cold the floor is
when you fall -
knife in your back.

Chorus:
(Because) The man in the corner, he's got 50 eyes
And the kid on the computer's on his 7th wife
You got to make the right connections just to stay alive
in this hell -
But lord, the devil sure pays well.

Going down to the city with my head on right
Going down to the city with my dreams in sight
Got to sacrifice my heart to keep a clearer mind
But even the best intentions can be dirtied by the business
of the streets,
And the blood beneath their feet

Chorus:
And the man in the corner, he's got 50 eyes
And the kid on the computer's on his 7th wife
You got to make the right connections just to stay alive
in this hell -

Now the man in the corner's been put out of sight
And the kid at the computer's been robbed of his life
I'm left bruised and broke and hopeless
Knowing what awaits me all too well.

Please, won't you get me out of this hell?
