Electric Avenue - Eddy Grant
Down in the street there is violence And a lots of work to be done No place to hang out our washing And I can't blame all on the sun, oh no
CHORUS: We gonna rock down to Electric Avenue And then we'll take it higher Oh we gonna rock down to Electric Avenue And then we'll take it higher
Workin' so hard like a soldier Can't afford a thing on TV Deep in my heart I'm a warrior Can't get food for them kid, good God
Oh no... Oh no... Oh no... Oh no...
Who is to blame in one country Never can get to the one Dealin' in multiplication And they still can't feed everyone, oh no
Out in the street... Out in the street... Out in the playground... In the dark side of town...
Rock it in the daytime Rock it in the night ...
