Bon Jovi - Wild In The Streets



Lyrics



Joey comes from a sacred part of town


Where sometimes you talk so tough


That your feet don't touch the ground


And the sidewalk soldiers sing the midnite blues


While the old men recite their story lines


About when I was young like you


They say: Oh yeah


We were cruising to the backbeat


Oh yeah, Making love in the backseats


We were wild, wild in the streets



A member of the boy's brigade


Had a date with the girl next door


You know it made her daddy crazy


But it only made her want him more


They weren't looking for trouble


You know that boy didn't want a fight - not tonight


So she headed out thru her bathroom window


What her daddy didn't know was gonna be alright


They said: Oh yeah


We were cruising to the backbeat


Oh yeah, Making love in the backseats


We were wild, wild in the streets


Wild, wild in the streets


Wild, wild in the streets


Wild, wild in the streets



Sometimes this town ain't pretty


But you know it ain't so bad


Just like a girl who looks so happy


Whe inside she's so so sad


In here we got this code of honor


Nobody's going down


You don't walk in vain


Trough the kid's parade


'Cause this is my hometown
