Street Life

I play the street life
Because there’s no place I can go
Street life
And it’s the only life I know
Street life
And there’s a thousand parts to play
Street life
Until you play your life away
You let the people see
Just who you want to be
And every night you shine
Just like a super star
That’s how the life is played
A ten cent Masquerade
You dress, and walk, and talk
You’re who you think you are
Street life
You can run away from time
Street life
For a nickel and a dime
Street life
But you better not get old
Street life
Or you’re gonna feel the cold
There’s always love for sale
A grown-up fairy tale
Prince charming always smiles
Behind a silver spoon
And if you keep it young
Your song is always sung
Your love will pay your way
Beneath the silver moon
