Streetfighting Man


Ev'rywhere I hear the sound of marching, charging feet, boy
'Cause summer's here and the time is right for fighting in the street, boy
Then what can a poor boy do, except to sing for a rock 'n' roll band
'Cause in sleepy London town there's just no place for a steet fighting man

Hey! I think the time is right to start a revolution
But when I live the game to play is compromise solution
Then what can a poor boy do, except to sing for a rock 'n' roll band
'Cause in sleepy London town there's just no place for a street fighting man

Hey! I said my name is disturbance
I'll shout and scream, I'll kill the king, I'll rail all his servants
Then what can a poor boy do, except to sing for a rock 'n' roll band
'Cause in sleepy London town there's just no place for a streetfighting man

Ev'rywhere I hear the sound of marching, charging feet, oh boy
'Cause summer's here and the time is right for fighting in the street, oh boy
But what can a poor boy do, except to sing for a rock 'n' roll band
'Cause in sleepy London town there's just no place for a steet fighting man
