Let me take you for a ride
Far away from the upper side
Oh, we're going down to the mean street

Johnny's got a brand new 38
He thinks it's gonna cure his hate
Oh, it's all done in the mean street

Oh, It's the state of grace
And It's all done in the mean street

Take my hand and close your pretty eyes
It's gonna hurt so much when summer hits the New Nork sky
Oh no, it's all done in the mean street

God I love this stormy cloud
Where all nasty girls they like it loud
Oh, it's all good in the mean streets

You know, Diane had her grand debut here
And Michael couldn't even tell if it was pleasure or fear
Oh, It's all done in the mean street
And It's my little state of grace
It goes down in the mean street

Take my hand and close your pretty eyes
it's gonna hurt so much when summer hits the New York sky
Oh no, it's all done in the mean street

The heights, the sights, the green, the scarred
The easy way of doing everything hard, the fashion
Oh I hate that street with, passion

Take my hand and close your pretty eyes
It's gonna hurt so much when summer hits the New York sky
Oh no, it's all done in the mean street
It's all done in the mean street
It's all done in the mean street
It's all done in the mean street
It's all done in the mean street
It's all done in the mean street
It's all done in the mean street
It's all done in the mean street
It's all done in the mean street

    General Comment"You know, Diane had her grand debut here
    And Michael couldn't even tell if it was pleasure or fear"

    was that a reference to Diana Ross and Michael Jackson?

    General Commenti found it neat that the line "Johnny's got a brand new 38/He thinks it's gonna cure his hate" which at first glance seems like he is planning to take some sort of revenge is later referenced in the song dead river , where it seems this character is putting himself out of his misery .
