Lyrics

In this dirty old part of the city


Where the sun refused to shine


People tell me it ain’t no use in tryin’


 


2nd verse:


 


My little girl you’re so young and pretty


And one thing I know is true


You’re gonna die before your time is due


 


3rd verse:


 


See my daddy in bed and tired


See his hair turnin’ gray


He’s been workin’ and slavin’ his life away – I know


 


Bridge #1:


 


Has he been workin’ - yes – everyday – slavin’ his life away – he’s been working baby – he’s been a -  workin’ (4x)


 


Chorus #1:


 


We gotta get out of this place


If it’s the last thing we ever do


We gotta out of this place


Girl there’s a better life for me and you


Hmm yeah


4th verse:


 


My little girl you’re so young and pretty


And one thing I know is true


You’ll be dead before your time is due – yes you will


 


Bridge #2:


 


See my daddy in bed and tired


See his hair been turnin’ gray


He’s been workin’ and slavin’ his life away – yes I know


Mmm He’s been workin’ yes – He’s been workin’ yes – Wah (scream) – he’s been  - workin’ (4x)


 


Chorus #2:


 


We gotta get out of this place


If it’s the last thing we ever do


We gotta out of this place


Girl there’s a better life for me and you


 


4 bars


Chorus #3:


 


We gotta get out of this place


If it’s the last thing we ever do


We gotta out of this place


Girl there’s a better life


Girl there’s a better life


Girl there’s a better life - for me and you
