He's a dirty old man
And a dirty old man
He's a dirty old man
And a friend of mine

What?
He's a dirty old man
And a dirty old man
He's a dirty old man
And a friend of mine

I'm a dirty old man, the mean streets are home
My life is cold, I'll chill you to the bone
Heart of stone, have a care I carry traces of death in my hair
You know my breath stinks, I leave shit everywhere

So be aware I'm unfeeling
Don't you dare try appealing to my better nature
You better wait, you're misinformed
Ain't nothing warm about me

Cold and gray, concrete clay and steel
And what else is real? I mean the actual deal
People seem to love living under my hair
Some of them call me London I'm also known as New York

Anywhere in the world you find me, I talk the same bad talk
Walk the same walk from side to side
You're transparent to me there ain't a thing you can hide
Derive glamor from the stamina it takes to survive

You think I didn't know it's all over your face like a rat
Now give me your cash and go before your heart break
You're living under my wing and all you got I'm gonna take
I'm a dirty old man

He's a dirty old man
And a dirty old man
He's a dirty old man
And a friend of mine

He's a dirty old man
And a dirty old man
He's a dirty old man
And a friend of mine

Huh, I'm a rough old man beyond heartache
To improve my mood I could use an earthquake
I sit awake for my people to release the pain
So I can know peace again in my skin

Sin, deceit and mistrust soaked in, huh
I think I might just bust open, drops of woe
The streets flow with tears I fall down all around your ears
If I could, if I was made of wood, start a fire, no lie

I can afford to smoke a sacred fire
'Cos I wouldn't bet on people changing just yet
My eyes are wet and my heart is full of fear and regret
So you're catching the rough edge of my tongue I started young

I got teenagers carrying guns, I hear you
Wanna hold me to blame but we're the same
So for me win society and feel the shame
I'm a rough old man

He's a dirty old man
And a dirty old man
He's a dirty old man
And a friend of mine

He's a dirty old man
And a dirty old man
He's a dirty old man
And a friend of mine

Oh, I'm a rough old man
This is who I am
He's a dirty old man
And a dirty old man
He's a dirty old man
And a friend of mine
