Lyrics for the Day -Dirty Blvd.

It was his birthday yesterday so we’re going to take a walk on the wild side.

Pedro lives out of the Wilshire Hotel
he looks out a window without glass
The walls are made of cardboard
Newspapers on his feet
his father beats him ’cause he’s too tired to beg

He’s got 9 brothers and sisters
They’re brought up on their knees
It’s hard to run when a coat hanger beats you on the thighs
Pedro dreams of being older and killing the old man
But that’s a slim chance
He’s going to the boulevard

He’s going to end up
On the dirty boulevard
He’s going out
To the dirty boulevard
He’s going down
To the dirty boulevard

This room cost 2,000 dollars a month
You can believe it man it’s true
Somewhere a landlord’s laughing till he wets his pants
No one here dreams of being a doctor or a lawyer or anything
They dream of dealing on the dirty boulevard

Give me your hungry, your tired your poor I’ll piss on ’em
That’s what the Statue of Bigotry says
Your poor huddled masses
Let’s club ’em to death and get it over with
And just dump ’em on the boulevard

Get to end up
On the dirty boulevard
Going out
To the dirty boulevard
He’s going down
On the dirty boulevard
Going out

Outside it’s a bright night
There’s an opera at Lincoln Center
Movie stars arrive by limousine
The klieg lights shoot up over the skyline of Manhattan
But the lights are out on the mean streets

A small kid stands by the Lincoln Tunnel
He’s selling plastic roses for a buck
The traffic’s backed up to 39th street
The TV whores are calling the cops out for a suck

And back at the Wilshire, Pedro sits there dreaming
He’s found a book on magic in a garbage can
He looks at the pictures and stares at the cracked ceiling
At the count of 3 he says, I hope I can disappear

And fly fly away
From this dirty boulevard
I want to fly
From dirty boulevard
I want to fly
from dirty boulevard
I want to fly-fly-fly-fly
From dirty boulevard
