Thirteenth day of August '54, I was five years old
Depending where you're counting from
Mama, tell me what was going abroad
No tales of things to come

Daddy, daddy come home in the evening with the burdens of the day
Pat Boone might come along and take Daddy's blues away
Mama take Daddy's head into her hands
Soothe awhile, soothe awhile, touch the boy inside the man

Beneath her skirts, between the clean, white sheets
It's such a long, long way from the streets
Beneath her skirts, between the clean, white sheets
It's such a long, long way from the streets

No, no, no, Miss Debbie Reynolds
Promised someone out there always to obey
Sugar, sugar, white, clean and neat

And there's no one better qualified to cry awhile, cry awhile
Not quite like Mr Johnny Ray
(Sugar, sugar, white, clean and neat)
(Sugar, sugar, white, clean and neat)

Beneath her skirts, between the clean, white sheets
It's such a long, long way from the streets
Beneath her skirts, between the clean, white sheets
It's such a long, long way, such a long, long
I said, it's such a long way from the streets

[Incomprehensible] want me no more?
Do you want me no more? Ooh yeah, talk to me

Oh yeah, down at the juke joint, back at the drive-in movie show
Moon dog made one more white boy sanctify
Out on the streets, the red hot streets, old heroes fell
And I screamed my name with pride

Beneath her skirts, between the clean, white sheets
It's such a long way, it's such a long way
It's such a long, long way from the streets

Beneath her skirts, between the clean, white sheets
It's such a long, long way, it's such a long, long
I said, it's such a long way from the streets

Hey, baby, [Incomprehensible] tell me, baby?
Don't you want me no more?
Little girl, little girl, little girl
Baby, baby, since I was loving you
