"Gibsom Street" as written by and Laura Nyro....
Don't go to gibsom cross the river
The devil is hungry
The devil is sweet
If you are soft then you will shiver
They hang the alley cats on gibsom street
I wish my baby were forbidden
I wish my world be struck by sleet
I wish to keep my mirror hidden
To hide the eyes that looked on gibsom street
There is a man he knows where I'm going
Gave me a strawberry to eat
I sucked its juices never knowing
That I would sleep that night on gibsom street

    General CommentIs Gibsom Street a real place? I would highly doubt it but I don't know. I don't really know what this song is talking about. Anyone have any ideas?

    General CommentActually I think this could be about fame and her insecurities with it. Also how deceitful some people can be in the business and a warning against the lifestyle.

    General CommentFrom what I have read, this song is about a woman who gets a back alley abortion, and the lyrics describe the resulting guilt and shame she feels. There appear to be some missing lyrics, i.e. "All my sorrow, all my mourning".
