Tough Street by Pete Stobbs published on 2014/06/04 16:36:16 +0000 Well..... things are hard on tough street since austerity came to town. Winos fight on the corner. The king has lost his crown. Newsman on the TV says things ain't looking good. Blue lights going crazy , woodworms out of the wood. Politicians smiling, they've never had it so good The vaults are getting emptied, the moneys' not going where it should. The bankers and thieves are laughing, ain't no difference it seems to me. 'cept one does time in jail for crime, the other keeps his liberty. The cost of living rises. cost of dying is getting the same. The heat in the city is rising,tempers are getting frayed. It's all turning upside down, things change but stay the same. Policeman on the corner, arrests a man with a radio, he's singing Shake baby shake. Shake baby shake C'mon shake baby shake Shake baby shake I ain't fakin whole lotta shakin going on.
