Dawn came sneaking like a skinny snake
The harder they go the harder I ache
Get so high, got so low
Somebody tell me 'bout this debt I owe

West side bomber looked like a comer
Looked like I'll be back at school
Put two on the nose and look how she goes
Little trained squeeze look like a fool, rock on, time was gone

And I'm gone, stone gone
Said you can forget about me
And I'm gone, stone gone

Working girls just trying to get ahead
Somebody's bound to end up dead
And honey you better stop coming down on me
On me, stop, jump street

Sally comes creeping at the break of dawn
Can't figure out whose side I'm on
Moma comes back like a ringing a bell
Knows a good thing and she knows it well

Enough left alone, wish your mama had kept you at home
Wish your mama had kept the evidence
Worrying about the Feds has crucified me for dead
She wish I was dead, well, I wish I was dead

But I'm gone, stone gone
Strong as I can be
I'm gone, stone gone

Don't look much like a Saturday night
Honey don't look for those flashing lights
But baby you'd better stop coming down on me
Stop coming down, I don't need it
Stop coming down on me, oww, jump street

And I'm gone, stone gone
You can forget about me, yeah
I'm gone, stone gone, so long

Working girls just trying to get ahead
Somebody's bound to end up dead
Honey, you better stop coming down on me
Stop your coming down, stop coming down on me, yeah
Stop coming down on me, look out funk

Jump street, I've been down this way
You been a fool again
Jump street don't make a fool
Rag time girls can never touch the spot
Little uptown girls
