I met a rattlesnake on the street
with teeth so sharp and white.
He's been crawling at the bottom
all of his life
and all he does is bite, bite.
He's got the uptown down
and how do you bet on snake eyes?
Down in the alley a lone gray wolf
puts out his cigarette
heading down to the Salvation Army store
to find a sheepskin that fits.
How can he hide what he is?
Those buzzards on the fire escape
watching you as you park,
they might swoop down and grab your radio
the minute that you walk.
You've got the uptown down,
don't leave your door unlocked.
