Sleep like a baby My little lady Dream tell the sunrise Creeps into your eyes, dream tell the sunrise turns on the day...
Sleep like a baby My little lady Dream tell the sunrise Creeps into your eyes, dream tell 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 dealin' All the low and living hyde Every city's got 'em can we ever stop em Some of us Have gotta try
