There's a man on the corner with somebody's daughter and her closest friend
When she's come here to score she's been here before she's got the right change

She's no more than fourteen,
She's got a life to lead,
A lamb there to the slaughter,
For the time and the place that she lives

Saw a man on the corner go back to that door where he makes the change
He's been ten feet tall since he left school and made the grade,

And his friends are five years older
But he's too blind to see
He's a lamb being led to the slaughter
By the time and the place that he lives

And it looks the same to me
This whole wide world over
Millions on their knees
But none we're looking over

Run to the door, demanding water, feeling grim
Man on the corner, while he's up to the fall and the law comes in

Sitting up in his fortress
It's due to hounding him
By the money I've exploited
The time and the place that he's in

Well she comes back back for more, she's caught by the law, and she starts to sing,
As the man on the corner, you want her for questioning,

The man up in his fortress
What's happening below him
He knows the law won't touch her
He's the time and the place that he's in

The man up in his fortress
What's happening below him
He knows the law won't touch her
He's the time and the place that he's in,
