The Lyrics

Streetwise is a newspaper sold by the homeless in Chicago
He's selling StreetWise
On the streets of Chicago
StreetWise
So he can earn some daily dough

StreetWise
It only sells for a dollar
StreetWise
If you want him to not holler

It helps Chicago's homeless
Try to get off the street
Lead a more stable life
Avoid mortal defeat

Despite constant rejection
From people every day
I see the Streetwise vendor
Maintain his merry way

StreetWise
Gets his life out of a mess
StreetWise
Helps the homey not just the homeless

StreetWise
They get seventy-five cents
StreetWise
They also gain common sense

This homeless paper started
On East 13th Street
Now it is in the process
Of making lives complete

StreetWise is not just urban
It is suburban, too
Homelessness is everywhere
I want to inform you

StreetWise
StreetWise
StreetWise
Oh, StreetWise
Uh, huh
Oh, yeah.

He's selling StreetWise
On the streets of Chicago
StreetWise
So he can earn some daily dough

StreetWise
It only sells for a dollar
StreetWise
If you want him to not holler

StreetWise
StreetWise
StreetWise
Oh, StreetWise

Mmmm...mmmm
