People on the street
Need a place to go
People on the street
Need a place to go

Walkin' with the beat
If it's not too slow
Walkin' with the beat
If it's not too slow

When night's dark shadow falls
On the sidewalk scenes and the concrete canyon walls

People on the street
Need a place to go
People on the street
Need a place to go

Walkin' through the night
Up and down the avenue
Lookin' for a place
A place to go, a place to go

There's a muffled scream
From the alley scene
From the alley scene
Comes a muffled scream

And the siren wails
While the system fails
In the steaming heat
People walk in the street

People can't run and hide
If you want to feel good then you gotta feel good inside

People on the street
Need a place to go
People on the street
Need a place to go

Rising through the grates
Come the fumes of industry floating to the sky
Keep walkin' with the beat
Walkin' with the beat

Keep walkin' with the beat
Walkin' with the beat
Keep walkin' with the beat
Walkin' with the beat

Keep walkin' with the beat
Walkin' with the beat
Walkin' with the beat
Walkin' with the beat

When night's dark shadow falls
On the sidewalk scenes and the concrete canyon walls

People on the street
Need a place to go
People on the street
Need a place to go

People on the street
Need a place to go
People on the street
Need a place to go
