I walk round on these rooftops of your Denver town. Tryin’ to take the same view as you all, always lookin’ down. Up on these roofs I put my ear westward and i hear, “we gotta take him down.”

Well, That’s not polite to listen in, I s’pose I’m not a gentleman. You us’ta want me, you us’ta need me, but now you only want them gentleman.

Ladies of Denver town, one and all gather ‘round, we will take the gentlemen and dress them down.

Still up on these rooftops, I do my best to cross over.
At the six hundreds to the five hundred, the four hundred I might be one with them.
on the roof of the 404, this lady of Denver, is speaking sweeter than the lord, it makes this weak weak man makes me weep... oh man.
Then Nonny swings her head out he door, says ‘don’t you lake a flood on my roof, your floor. You’ll never be as slim as slim, you ain’t actin’ like a gentleman.’

Ladies of Denver town, one and all gather ‘round, we will take the gentlemen and dress them down.

I have claimed your rooftops all for myself, but I see another up here (just like he said) creeping about.
I pitch dive and leap over to him and see it ain’t a gentleman (it’s a woman), I ask, ‘what you be doin’ ripping up them roofs of my friends?’ she say, ‘I’m taking up all these roofs so on us you can no longer look down.’

Then with that shaker in her hand she swings it to bring me down.
I get a skin on skin hold to fight her sin, my friend’s roofs I will defend.
Then David, Frank Jr., JP, and Slim, shaking their heads witnessing my sin.
Saying, ‘boy you got presumptive ways to walk our rooftops in defend, you’ve got one-eyed intentions, your timing was wrong, you’ll never be a gentleman.’

You’re no gentleman

[Ladies of Denver town, one and all gather ‘round, we will take the gentlemen and dress them down]

I set myself to this- to fight a constant war- you claim it is holy- I claim that it’s the law
