Uptown Down

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?

Uptown down...

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.
