Bruce Springsteen – The E Street Shuffle lyrics

Sparks fly on E Street when the boy-prophets
Walk it handsome and hot
All the little girls' souls grow weak
When the man-child gives them a double shot

The schoolboy pops pull out all the stops
On a Friday night
The teenage tramps in skin-tight pants
Do the E Street dance and everything's alright

Little kids down there either dancin'
Or hooked up in a scuffle
Dressed in snake-skin suits, packed with Detroit muscle
They're doin' the E Street Shuffle

Now those E Street brats in twilight
Duel flashlight phantoms in full star stream
Down fire trails on silver nights
With blonde girls pledged sweet sixteen

The newsboys say the heat's been bad since Power Thirteen gave
A trooper all he had in a summer scuffle
And Power's girl, Little Angel, been on the corner
Keepin' those crazy boys out of trouble

Little Angel steps the shuffle like she ain't got no brains
She's deaf in combat down on Lover's Lane
She drives all them local boys insane, yes she does

Little Angel says, Ah, ooh (Oh, ooh, everybody form a line)
Ah, ooh, ooh, ooo (Ah, ooh, ooh, ooo, everybody form a line)

When the sparks fly on E Street when the boy-prophets
Walk it handsome and hot
All them little girls' souls grow weak
When the man-child gives them a double shot

Ah, Little Angel hangs out at Easy Joe's
It's a club where all the riot squad goes
When they're cashin' in for a cheap hustle

But, them boys are still on the corner loose
And doin' that lazy E Street Shuffle

As them sweet summer nights turn into summer dreams
Little Angel picks up Power and he slips on his jeans
And they move on out down to the scene
All the kids are dancin'
