Down In The Street

Down in the street
There's a gunshot warning
Here comes that blue parade
Ready to save the day

Down in the street
There's a whole block burning
Shout out for rent control
I ride the gang patrol

Oh it's just another sign
That summer's coming
City wars and flash floods and tornados
Festivals for rock and roll season
Beach talk baseball and a handy household hymns

Yes it's true in the U.S. of A.
There's lots of room at the top
Oh but you can't sit down
On, no you can't sit down

And don't you know that boudoir
Looks just a ball and chain
Oh but you can't sit down
Oh, no you can't sit down

All through the night
You hear gunshot warnings
This time it wasn't you
The devil paid your dues

All through the night
You hear the city moaning
Must be a tomcat prowling
Baby, your stomach's growling

Oh, it's just another sign
That summer's coming,
City wars and flash floods and tornados
Festivals for rock and roll season
Beach talk baseball and a handy household hymns

Summertime... and the living is easy
