CHORUS

Soldier in the city
Soldier in the city
Soldier in the city
Soldier in the city

VERSE 1

No jobs to occupy my time
What else you expect me to do except crime
It ain't stealing if it's somebody's fare
Refuse to lose with this trouble on my mind

PRECHORUS

Johnny Law come busting down my door
But the police don't scare me anymore
I've been in that back seat so many times before

CHORUS

Soldier in the city
I'ma soldier in the city
Soldier in the city
I'ma soldier in the city

VERSE 2

Trying to make some cheese outta all of these stamps Wanna find a queen but all I'm seeing is tramps
Everyday feels like I'm away at boot camp
Badass little kids busting out the street lamps

PRECHORUS 2

Neighborhood hustler, come knocking at my door
Gotta pay my debts, need to settle the score
'Cause I don't want no more trouble from these fellas no more

CHORUS

Soldier in the city
I'ma soldier in the city, whoohoo
I'ma soldier in the city
Soldier in the city

BREAK

Hey, Hey, Hey, Hey
Whoo hoo
Whoo hoo
Hahaha
Hahaha

CHORUS

Soldier in the city
I'ma soldier in the city, whoohoo
I'ma soldier in the city
Soldier in the city

BRIDGE

Hey, Hey
Can you hear me marching, left, left, left right left (Fighting to survive trying to stay alive)
You can hear me marching,left, left, left right left (Fighting to survive trying to stay alive)
Can you hear me marching, left, right, left, don't you know

CHORUS

I'ma Soldier in the city
(Left, left, left right left)
Soldier in the city
(Left, left, left right left)
I'ma soldier in the city
(Left, left, left right left)
Soldier in the city
(Left, left, left right left)
Soldier in the city
