"Avenues and Alleyways" as written by Peter Callander and Mitch Murray....
Sleep like a baby
My little lady
Dream tell the sunrise
Creeps into your eyes, dream tell the sunrise turns on the day

In the avenues and alleyways
While you sleep there's a whole world comin alive
Abel and his brother fight with one another
In and out of every dive
The avenues and alleyways
Where the strong and the quick alone can survive
Look around the jungle
See the rough and tumble
Listen to a squealer cry
Then a little later in the morning paper
Read about the way he died

Wake up my pretty
Go to the city
Stay through the daytime
Safe in the sunshine
Stay till the daytime turns into night

In the avenues and alleyways
Where a man's gotta work out which side he's on
Anyway he chooses
Chances are he looses
No one gets to live too long

The avenues and alleyways
Where the soul of a man is easy to buy
Everybody's wheelin'
Everybody's dealin'
All the low and living hyde
Every city's got 'em can we ever stop em
Some of us
Have gotta try
