Boy...
Boy...
Now in the street there is violence
And - and a lots of work to be done
No place to hang out our washing
And - and I can't blame all on the sun
Ref:
Oh no we gonna rock down to Electric Avenue
And then we'll take it higher
Oh we gonna rock it 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 am a warrior
Can't get food for them kid
Ref:
Good God 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
Interlude:
Oh no
Oh no
Oh no
Oh no
Ref:
Oh no 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
Who is to blame in one country
Never can get to the one
Dealin' in multiplication
And they still can't feed everyone
Ref:
Oh no we gonna rock down to Electric Avenue
And then we'll take it higher
Oh no we gonna rock down to Electric Avenue
And then we'll take it higher
2nd Interlude:
Out in the street
Out in the street
Out in the day time
Out in the night
Ref:
Oh 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
3rd Interlude:
Out in the street
Out in the street
Out in the playground
In the dark side of town
Ref:
Oh, we gonna rock down to Electric Avenue
And then we'll take it higher
Hey, we gonna rock down to Electric Avenue
And then we'll take it higher
Ohh yeah, higher
(Rock it in the daytime,
Rock it in the night - repeat until fade

    Great song! Electric avenue was from 1982. I was already 1 year old, a baby.

    Revisiting the 1980's on 97.3 the coast.
