9 ball rack sitting on the table
Step right up if you're able
Sonny gives a lesson to a hundred of games
Lay the money down take dead aim
House band rockin' way too long
What you gonna do for a viper crowd
Aint no white, ain't no black,
Welcome to the wrong side of the tracks
CHORUS:
Wrong side of the tracks
Tried to leave, but you came right back
To the Wrong side of the tracks
It's in your blood, and that's a fact
From a big old limo sneakin' up slow
Anything you need, you can get it to go
The money comes up, the deal goes down
Looks like somebody's going downtown
Tires squeeling, blue lights flashing
Shots fired, cars crashing
Just keep movin', and watch your back
You're on the wrong side of the tracks
-- CHORUS --
Homeless livin', hand to mouth
Talk about movin' further south
Livin' underneith the overpass
Got a little food but it will not last
Wino dyin' in the gutter
the very last words I heard him mutter
"You think you're smart, but you don't know jack
You're on the wrong side of the tracks"
-- CHORUS --
Wrong side of the tracks
Tried to leave, but you came right back
To the Wrong side of the tracks
You think you're smart, but you don't know jack
