Where The Action Is Submit Correct Lyrics

Where streets start getting wild
Well you're moving on down on the other side of the tracks
Would you cross that line baby, there ain't no turning back
Some raise and I don't ever wanna see that place
That's where the action is

Listen, hear the stories hear the lies
You hear the rooms they criticize
They call you everything under the moon
Then they try to buy you with diamonds and rings and rings

Move over baby gonna help you out of this mess
By the look of your face well you been here before I guess
You're hanging around, like some kinda parasite on past
And I just wanna tell you to come on let's go
And I know a place where never cold
And I know a place where the thing is sin
And I'm gonna tell you where the action is

Your momma's told you about whiskey and she's told you about beer
...drink and hear... nothing
It turns you into a monster it turns your mind insane
It does things to you where you will never come back again
I don't care what your disposition is I don't care what's your name
I'm gonna tell you where the action is

Look at you dressed in your debutante dress and your phoney eye-lashes
Walking around like you just walked out of some fucking car crash
You think that you're OK cause you're looking like you're gonna have a smash
with the action
I don't care where you're going, I don't care what you say,
What your religion is
Baby, I just wanna tell you where the action is, hey, hey, hey, hey

Take off that wedding ring baby, you don't need it anymore
Take off that dress girl and throw it out the door
Take off those phoney make-up and those eye-lashes I saw
Take off your shoes and your hat
And throw the whole fucking lot right out the door
Come over here and lend me your ear
I'm gonna tell you where the action is

I don't care if you can read a book or if you can write
I don't care how long your hair is or how bright
I don't care about much to tell you the truth but that's allright
I only care is if you come on like you think you're with the action
I've got only one thing to say: come here darling, kiss me,
I'm gonna show you where the action is

You spend a little dollar and you spend a little dime
You get all funny and you laugh at your friends
And you think you're having a good time
You don't know nothing till you come around here and have some of mine
Then you'll start to understand about the two sides of the line
Come over here darling, lend me your ear, gonna educate you
Gonna tell you where the action is
