Electric Avenue

Lyrics

Now in the street, there is violence

And-and a lots of work to be done

No place to hang out our washing

And-and I can’t blame all on the sun

 

Good God, we gonna rock down to Electric Avenue

And then we’ll take it higher

Oh, we gonna rock down to Electric Avenue

Then we’ll take it higher

 

Workin’ so hard like a soldier

Can’t afford a thing on TV

Deep in my heart, I abhor ya

Can’t get food for the kid

 

Good God, we gonna rock down to Electric Avenue

And then we’ll take it higher

Ho, we gonna rock down to Electric Avenue

And then we’ll take it higher

 

Oh no

Oh no

Oh no

Oh no

 

We gonna rock down to Electric Avenue

And then we’ll take it higher

Ho, we gonna rock down to Electric Avenue

And then we’ll take it higher

 

Who is to blame in one country?

Never can get to the one

Dealin’ in multiplication

And they still can’t feed everyone

 

Oh no, we gonna rock down to Electric Avenue

And then we’ll take it higher

Ho, we gonna rock down to Electric Avenue

Then we’ll take it higher

 

Out in the street

Out in the street

Out in the playground

In the dark side of town

 

Down to Electric Avenue

And then we’ll take it higher

Ho, we gonna rock down to Electric Avenue

Then we’ll take it higher

 

Down to Electric Avenue

And then we’ll take it higher

Ho, we gonna rock down to Electric Avenue

Then we’ll take it higher

 

Electric Avenue

Then we’ll take it higher

Electric Avenue

Then we’ll take it higher
