Let's take likes down Spruce who returns in the south And go down to the market and get food for our mouths. Red tomato and feta cheese. Sit on the porch and wait for the summer breeze. It rarely comes around, and I'm so damn hot, I've been sweating all day I've been sweating all month and the neighbors are getting angry doing the shout pushing the summer and heat back out.
Philadelphia
Philadelphia
The city I moved to the city of the east, City of Brotherly Love, city of the police. Mumia Abu Jamal is still on death row, Nineteen years and they won't let him go. And the six by 8 cell with a toilet on the wall, 15 minutes a week to make a telephone call
Philadelphia
The district attorney has blood on her hand, new evidence revealed old convictions stand. So many innocent in jail and how many more, because of an OJ trial they could not afford. And they're filling the jails and selling the schools.
Philadelphia
And like a well worn shoe I'm slipping right into place, and every one of those 3000 miles, I was wishing I was kissing your face.
Philadelphia
Co-Ops been there 30 years or more, over 200 members have keys to the door. All these years, never been ripped off, making a garden out of an abandoned lot. Empty buildings into squats, buying old houses in trust.
Philadelphia.
There's a bar on the corner with a band. Thursday night that place is too packed, that's what makes it alright. The keep the beer in the freezer, I'd like a cold one right now but I'm miles away and it's fairly pleasant out.
Philadelphia
Philadelphia
I miss you Philadelphia
Like a well worn shoe I'm slipping right into place, and every one of those 3000 miles, I was wishing I was kissing your face.
Philadelphia!
