Oh I am a backstreet boy and anyone will tell you so
An eye on the moon if there were no tune
And for the kids with no place to go
Me and Scottie were talking that nervous way that we always did
That's when I realized I had something there to show him
And that I would have to keep it hid
I said I wanna walk on down in the ally
Down where the light shines so very dimly
I wanna shake hands with all the creatures that I meet
With miss Cinderella backstreet

Now I try to teach naivetй to kids brought up on tv
I tried hard to smile but I got hung up in style
Yeay it seems they saw right through me
You know, me and Ricky were talking
Between all the noise, the smoke and the jive
And I said play'em those blues
That you learned from the English dudes
Ever what does it really satidfy
I said I wanna walk on down in the ally
Down where the light shines so very dimly
Out where the ally cat walks on silent padded feet
With miss Cinderella backstreet

There was one down for the leather boys
And one for the never been kissed
Still another for all the
Yeah we just somehow seemed to miss
And one more that we could dream on
And still another one for the show
Well Denise, she did my eyes and I felt just like a prize
Until those tears began to flow
And I decided to go and take care of some business
With the gentleman from Morning Side Avenue
Who introduced me to his very best friend from Denver
He took me aside and advised me what it was that I should do
And I said right now I wanna walk on down in the ally
Down where the light shines so very dimly
Out where the night is so complete
With miss Cinderella backstreet
I wanna walk down in the ally
Down where the light shines so very dimly
Out where the ally cat walks on siled padded feet
With miss Cinderella backstreet
With miss Cinderella backstreet
