The Sunnyside Of The Street

Album: Hell's Ditch (1990)
  • Seen the carnival at Rome
    Had the women, I had the booze
    All that I can remember now
    Is little kids without no shoes

    So, I saw that train and I got on it
    With a heartful of hate and a lust for vomit
    Now I'm walking on the sunnyside of the street

    Stepped over bodies in Bombay
    Tried to make it to the U.S.A.
    Ended up in Nepal
    Up on the roof with nothing at all
    And I knew that day
    I was going to stay right where I am
    On the sunnyside of the street

    Been in a palace, been in a jail
    I just don't want to be reborn a snail
    Just want to spend eternity right where I am
    On the sunnyside of the street

    As my mother wept it was then I swore
    To take my life as I would a whore
    I know I'm better than before
    I will not be reconstructed

    Just want to stay right here
    The sunnyside of the street
    The sunnyside of the street
    The sunnyside of the street
