* Skid Row (Downtown)
Cover of "Skid Row" from "Little Shop of Horrors" musical Written by Alan Menken and Howard Ashman
[BRENDON] Alarm goes off at seven And you start uptown You put in your eight hours For the powers that have always been Till it's five P.M [VOICE] Then You go [DALLON] Downtown Where the folks are broke You go Downtown Where your life's a joke You go Downtown When you buy your token, you go Home to Skid Row [ALL] (Home to Skid Row) [VOICE] Yes, you go [DALLON] Downtown Where the cabs don't stop Downtown Where the food is slop Downtown Where the hop-heads flop in the snow Down on Skid Row Oh, Uptown you cater to a million jerks Uptown you're messengers and mailroom clerks Eating all your lunches at the hot dog carts The bosses take your money and they break your hearts Uptown you cater to a million whores You disinfect terrazzo on their bathroom floors The jobs are really menial you make no bread And then at five-o'clock you head... ...By subway [BRENDON + DALLON] Downtown [BRENDON] Where the guys are drips [IAN + DALLON] Downtown [BRENDON] Where they rip your slips [IAN + DALLON] Downtown [BRENDON] Where relationships are no go Down on Skid Row [DALLON] Down on Skid Row [BRENDON] Down on Skid Row [DALLON] Down on Skid Row [IAN] Down on Skid [ALL] Down on Skid Row Down on Skid Row! [IAN] Poor, all my life I've always been poor I keep askin' God what I'm for And he tells me, "Gee, I'm not sure" "Sweep that floor, kid!" Oh! I started life as an orphan, A child of the street, down here on Skid Row! He took me in, gave me shelter A bed, crust of bread and a job He treats me like dirt, calls me a slob, Which I am... So I live [ALL] Downtown [IAN] That's your home address, you live [ALL] Downtown [IAN] When your life's a mess, you live [ALL] Downtown [IAN] Where depression's just status quo [ALL] Down on Skid Row [DALLON] Someone show me a way to get outta here 'Cause I constantly pray I'll get outta here Please won't somebody say I'll get outta here Someone gimmie my shot, or I'll rot here! [ALL + DALLON] (Downtown) (There's no rules for us) Show me how and I will, I'll get outta here (Downtown) ('Cause it's dangerous) I'll start climbin' up hill and get outta here (Downtown) (Where there rainbow just doesn't show) Someone tell me I still could get outta here Someone tell lady luck that I'm stuck here! [DALLON] Gee it sure would be swell to get outta here Bid the gutter farewell and get outta here I'd move heaven and hell to get outta Skid I'd do I don't know what to get outta Skid [IAN + BRENDON] (Downtown) [DALLON] But a hell of a lot to get outta Skid [IAN + BRENDON] (Downtown) [DALLON] People tell me there's not a way outta Skid [IAN + BRENDON] (Downtown) [DALLON] But believe me I gotta get outta Skid [ALL] Row!
