The Lyrics

I was just walking along
When I entered the bad part of the city
Now I'm lost in the ghetto
Trying to find my way home most rapidly
And avoid mugging

Dark, back alley, and I ain't brave or armed
What did I just get myself into?
Dark, back alley...dawn can't come too soon
I've got a feelin' like I'm being pursued

Out the corner of my eye
I see some folks with knives and a gun
In the night my screams and cries
Don't cause them to scatter...without my money
And my MP3

Dark, back alley..fearin' bod'ly harm
Lookin' for a cop that I can talk to
Dark, back alley...think I may meet my doom
Hope that I'm not going to be subdued

At last I see the morning light
The sun brings me extensive ecstasy
Now I'm running for my life
Down the avenue seeking rel'tive safety
And I'm so glad to leave

Dark, back alley, and I ain't brave or armed
What did I just get myself into?
Dark, back alley...dawn can't come too soon
I've got a feelin' like I'm being pursued

Dark, back alley..fearin' bod'ly harm
Lookin' for a cop that I can talk to
Dark, back alley...think I may meet my doom
Hope that I'm not going to be subdued
