Year:  1975


They must have had the whole thing planned
        There must have been a hundred
If we make a stand
       I think we'll be outnumbered
If I'd had the chance
        Then I could understand
Why I'm a juvenile delinquent
             In an East End gang

And if you think you've seen gasoline burning in my eyes
Don't be alarmed, tell yourself it's good to be, it's good to be alive

It's just another street kid on your tail
Running on the wrong side of the rails
With my boot lace tie and my hand-me-downs
You know I run the toughest bunch this side of town
Those street kids making news just being around

I've been bottled and been brained
        Squealers can't be trusted
If we fight tonight
   You can bet we'll all be busted
I'd like to break away
           From the rut I'm in
But beggars can't be choosers
            And I was born to sin
And if you think you've seen gasoline burning in my eyes
Don't be alarmed, tell yourself it's good to be, it's good to be alive

It's just another street kid on your tail
Running on the wrong side of the rails
With my boot lace tie and my hand-me-downs
You know I run the toughest bunch this side of town
Those street kids making news just being around

Let's hear it for the street kids
Making news just being around

(INSTRUMENTAL VERSE)

(CHORUS)

Let's hear it for the street kids
Making news just being around

Just another street kid,
Just another street kid,
Just another street kid, making news just being around.

(REPEAT, FADE)
