Outside the window, the neon flashes
In the morning light
Down on the sidewalk, there's a woman with a problem
But she don't know how to fight

She's destitute and broken down
She softly whispers, is there no one around?
And no one hears the sound
Her knees give way and hit the ground

This is the toughest street in town
This is the toughest street in town
This is the toughest street in town
This is the toughest

Like a rat in a pack
It attacks from the back
Through a crack in a track
And you're taking smack

And Jack has had a hard day
No one told him it would be like this
He's had to score the hard way
And there's that trick he'll always miss

This is the toughest street in town
This is the toughest, it's tough stuff
This is the toughest street around
This is the toughest

[Unverified]

It's just another black spot
Where far too many people have died
It's just another grave yard
And there's not too many people left alive

This is the toughest, are you tough enough?
This is the toughest, are you rough enough?
This is the toughest, can you bluff enough?

Just a minor misery did me no harm
But it's there as a constant reminder and it's there to warn
The neon is still flashing in the morning light
Down on the sidewalk, that woman was blown away out of sight

All across the city no one gives a damn
All across the city no one seems to understand
This is the toughest, this is the toughest street in town
This is the toughest street around, this is the toughest

Are you rough enough?
This is the toughest
If I were you, I wouldn't come around here
This is the toughest, this is the toughest
Are you tough enough?
