Little Jon Lyrics

Little Jon is on the streets, late night on the ave
Lookin' at the pretty girls and the things he'd love to have
Street life heroes don't mean zero but that's not what he sees
Sidewalk stars and fancy cars makes him week at the knees

He was little Jon, he slipped away
He was little Jon, slipped away
He was little Jon, he slipped away
He was little Jon, end today

Hangin' out in the midnight hour, comin' home late at night
Nothing's in the kitchen but a can of beer, his father wants to fight
He's not ready, he's not ready for this, there's but so much he can take
He wants to get away but he doesn't wanna work
Lookin' for a easy break

He was little Jon, he slipped away
He was little Jon, slipped away
He was little Jon, he slipped away
He was little Jon, end today, huh

Kids at school are really cruel, they tease him about his clothes
His shoes are worn, his coat is torn, he's hungry and it shows
He can't take it, he says, "Forget about this, I know what I can do
I'll stand on the corner, make money
And I'm gonna live better than all of you"

He was little Jon, he slipped away
He was little Jon, slipped away, huh
He was little Jon, he slipped away
He was little Jon, end today

Years have passed and at long, long last, he's really lookin' good
But he's not livin' comfortable, he's foolin' the neighborhood
Competition is jealous, the cops are hot, they all want him to fail
Now his only choice in life is to die or live in jail

He was little Jon, he slipped away
He was little Jon, slipped away
He was little Jon, he slipped away
He was little Jon, end today, kick it

[Incomprehensible]
What we got here?
Looks like a homicide, Chief
Shame, another one bites the dust
