Street rats hanging out with the house cats
I came from the dust bowl
And I was working for an orange grove
And all I got was a bloody nose

I came for the scenery
And I woke up in the shrubbery
I think I hit another pharmacy
I've been through liquor stores and jewelry stores
Banks, tanks and music scores
I've had busted scores, open sores
And morning whores yourself to the night before

Can't you tell that these helicopters haunt me
House cats making moves on the street rats
And every single motel room is shady
Street rats making out with the house cats

Sending those boys up to the Hollywood hills
I said take what's yours
Energy is courtesy of pharmacy pills
You know it feels so pure
And when we touch you know it seems
Like we're one big machine
Picking up speed
Somewhere in the valley
Bring it to the city

Walked real fast down the boulevard
Tourists taking pictures of the sidewalk stars
And all those pretty boys with the sideways scars
All stood at attention
Never asked to be king of these rats
This position it just kind of fell in my lap
And they were back to back
And I was back to back
House cats making love to the street rats.
