Skid Row (Downtown) Lyrics

 

Skid Row (Downtown) Song Lyrics


[WOMAN]
Alarm goes off at seven
And you start uptown.
You put in your eight hours
For the powers that have always been.
Till it's five P.M.
[BUM 1]
Then You go
[COMPANY]
Downtown
Where the folks are broke.
Downtown
Where your life's a joke.
Downtown
When you buy your token,
you go
Home to skid row.
[BUM 2]
Yes, you go
[COMPANY]
Downtown
Where the cabs don't stop
Downtown
[MUSHNIK]
Where the food is slop
[COMPANY]
Downtown
Where the hop-heads flop
in the snow
Down on Skid Row
[Girls]
Uptown you cater to a million jerks.
Uptown you're messengers and
mailroom clerks
eating all your lunches at the
hot dog carts.
The bosses take your money
And they break your hearts.
Uptown you cater to a million whores.
You disinfect terrazzo on their
bathroom floors.
Your morning's tribulation,
afternoon's a curse
And five o'clock is even worse
[BUM 3]
That's when you go
[COMPANY]
Downtown
[AUDREY]
Where the guys are drips.
[COMPANY]
Downtown
[AUDREY]
Where they rip your slips.
[COMPANY]
Downtown
[AUDREY]
Where relationships are no go.
Down on skid row!
[SEYMOUR]
Poor! All my life I've always been poor.
I keep asking God what I'm for,
and he tells me "Gee, I'm not sure
sweep that floor, kid."
Oh, I started life as an orphan,
a child of the street
Here on skid row.
He took me in, gave me shelter, a bed,
Crust of bread and a job
Treats me like dirt, calls me a slob,
Which I am.
So I live
[COMPANY]
Downtown
[SEYMOUR]
That's your home address.
Ya live
[COMPANY]
Downtown
[SEYMOUR]
When your life's a mess.
Ya live
[COMPANY]
Downtown
[SEYMOUR]
Where depressions' jes'
Status Quo.
[COMPANY]
Down on skid row
[SEYMOUR]
Someone show me a way to get
outa here,
'cause I constantly pray I'll get
outa here
Please, won't somebody say I'll get
outa here.
Someone gimme my shot or I'll
rot here.
[COMPANY]
Downtown
[SEYMOUR]
Show me how and I will, I'll get outta here.
[COMPANY]
Downtown
[SEYMOUR]
I'll start climbing up hill and get outta here.
[COMPANY]
Downtown
[SEYMOUR ]
Someone tell me I still could get outta here.
[COMPANY]
Downtown
[SEYMOUR]
Someone tell lady luck that I'm stuck here.
[COMPANY]
Downtown
[SEYMOUR & AUDREY]
Gee it sure would be swell to get outta here.
[COMPANY]
Downtown
[SEYMOUR & AUDREY]
Bid the gutter farewell and get outta here.
[COMPANY]
Downtown
[SEYMOUR & AUDREY]
I'd move heaven and he'll to get outta skid.
[COMPANY]
Downtown
[SEYMOUR & AUDREY]
I'd do I dunno what to get outa skid
[COMPANY]
Downtown
[SEYMOUR & AUDREY]
But a hell of a lot to get outa skid
[COMPANY]
Downtown
[SEYMOUR & AUDREY]
People tell me there's not a way outa skid
[COMPANY]
Downtown
[SEYMOUR & AUDREY]
But believe me I gotta get outa skid
[EVERYONE]
Row!
