In this dirty old part of the city,
Where the sun refused to shine
People tell me there ain't no use in tryin'.

My girl you're so young and pretty,
And one thing I know is true,
You'll be dead before your time is due!

We gotta get out of this place
If it's the last thing we ever do
We gotta get out of this place
'cause girl, there's a better life for me and you

My girl you're so young and pretty,
And one thing I know is true,
You'll be dead before your time is due!

See my daddy in bed a-dyin'.
See his hair been turnin' grey.
He's been workin' and slavin' his life away.

We gotta get out of this place,
If it's the last thing we ever do.
We gotta get out of this place,
'cause girl, there's a better life for me and you.

In this dirty old part of the city,
Where the sun refused to shine
People tell me there ain't no use in tryin'.

We gotta get out of this place,
If it's the last thing we ever do.
We gotta get out of this place,
'cause girl, there's a better life for me and you.

Better life for me and you [x8]
