Dana Fuchs – Backstreet Baby lyrics
She was standing on a back street - she was filling up her need
She was wanted in 4 counties - only days since she’d been freed

Living for no reason she got nothin left to lose

Left her baby back home cryin’ - her hunger was too deep
She gave up - even trying - to sing her back to sleep

Living for no reason she got nothin left to lose
Nothin to believe in - nothing left to prove

Meet me down on the back street baby
My hands are dirty - my tongue is tied
I’ll give you love like a back street lady
Share my shame in broad daylight

She’d been waiting for her mama - on the wrong side of the hate
Scrapping for survival - too small to carry her own weight

Fighting for a reason - she had everything to lose
Some one to believe in - makes it easier to choose

(so she says)

Meet me down on the back street baby
My hands are dirty - my tongue is tied
I’ll give you love like a back street lady
Share my shame in broad daylight (on the 5)



Heard the sound of distant thunder - beatin' down the door
Her heart went racin’ - she went running - found her lying on the floor

Dying for no reason - was all that she could choose
No one to believe in - she got nothin left to lose
