lyrics

When Beauty Hit The Street

I never believed in a beauty
That was beyond time or grace
Till you came to leave your mark on this world
And put me in my place
Oh I’ve been wild about you woman
Ever since the day we met
See I do for you just like you do for me
Now baby for heaven we are set

(chorus)
The sun never felt so good on my face
The air never tasted so sweet
And this town it never looked so good
Till your beauty hit the street
And had me singing; ‘La Da Da Da ……’

These streets they’ve been getting so lonely baby
Now that everyone’s out to score
There are those who trade love for money
And those trading money for more more more
And I’m broke in a city so broken
But that won’t stop my stride
See I’m rich as a lover
With my woman by my side

(repeat chorus)

Yesterday is dead and buried and tomorrow is yet to rise
So how ‘bout we do a bit of living honey while today is still alive
So won’t you wear that slinky number I’ll be as sharp as I can be
And we’ll dance these streets so beautiful, these streets made for you and me
And we’ll dance these streets so beautiful, these streets made for you and me

(repeat chorus)
