I live down in Shantytown
Where chicken's twenty cents a pound
And if you live on such solid ground
Whatcha doin' down in Shantytown?
Whatcha doin' down in Shantytown?

Well, I'm back on your side of the tracks
Have you come back for me to take you back?
Back to your high society to your cocktails and your teas
I'll look up but don't look down 'cause we got pride in Shantytown

I live down in Shantytown
Where chicken's twenty cents a pound
And if you live on such solid ground
Whatcha doin' down in Shantytown?
Whatcha doin' down in Shantytown?

Behind the walls of your shackled heart beats pure
While the rich have a love to endure
Well, is the gold in your crown turning black?
Is there something here in Shantytown that keeps you coming back?

I live down in Shantytown
Where chicken's twenty cents a pound
And if you live on such solid ground
Whatcha doin' down in Shantytown?
Whatcha doin' down in Shantytown?
