Oh, I know wanna sound weak
Is lookin old and time to seek
While the hooker in the doorway
Leaves to turn another cheek

And the jukebox in the Camberlay
Is blearing out the blues
But the blues is just a way of life
On Honky tonk Avenue

Where the swingers and the hustlers
And the evening people dwell
Where the neon shines toward heaven
While it lights the way to hell

Time to survive and time to stay alive
Sabout all a man can do
You can make it anywhere
If you can make it out there
On Honky tonk Avenue

Where all birds of a feather
Were out here on the street
In all kinds of weather

Were all in this thing together
Were just trying to make a living
Just trying to get by

Its a one-way street to nowhere
Where nothings as it seems
Its a multi-car junkyard
Full of a thousand broken dreams

And its the end of the line
Where the sun dont shine
And theres nothing left to lose
Well it sure aint a lot but its all that weve got
On Honky-Tonk Avenue

Where all birds of a feather
Were out here on the street in all kinds of weather
Were all in this thing together

Were just trying to make a living
Just trying to get by
Were just trying to make a living
Just trying to get by

Oh, I know wanna sound weak
Is lookin old and time to seek
