I live on the west side, by the county reservoir
And she lives down on depot street, behind the city hall
Behind the city hall

Her father's name is Macintosh, her mother's name is Pearl
And they live down on depot street, she's my little girl
She's my little girl

Down on depot street, I'm gonna see my baby
Depot street, I'm gonna see my girl
Depot street, baby, baby, baby
Depot street, behind the city hall

We ain't got no money, we don't have no car
We stay down on depot street, just dancin' in the park
Dancin' in the park

And her sister doesn't like me, but I don't really care
I know the only reason is she wants me for herself
She wants me for herself

Down on depot street, I'm gonna see my baby
Depot street, I'm gonna see my little girl
Depot street, baby, baby, baby
Depot street, behind the city hall

She's my baby, she's my girl

And we ain't been to college, we both quit high school
There was way too many people there makin' way too many rules
Makin' way too many rules

So we got no education, but we don't care at all
'Cause it don't mean much on depot street, behind the city hall
Behind the city hall

Down on depot street, I'm gonna see my baby
Depot street, I'm gonna see my girl
Depot street, baby, baby, baby
Depot street, behind the city hall

Down on depot street, I'm gonna see my baby
Depot street, I'm gonna see my girl
Depot street, baby, baby, baby
Depot street, behind the city hall
