Sometimes I'm up, sometimes I'm down
I can't make my livin' around this town
Because tricks ain't walkin', tricks ain't walkin' no more
I said, tricks ain't walkin' no more, tricks ain't walkin' no more
And I got to make my livin', don't care where I go

I need shoes on my feet, clothes on my back
Get tired of walkin' these streets all dressed in black
But tricks ain't walkin', tricks ain't walkin' no more
I said, tricks ain't walkin' no more, tricks ain't walkin' no more
And I get four or five good tricks standin' in front of my door

Please have mercy, bad luck is on my head
Four or five good tricks is all the money I need
But tricks ain't walkin', tricks ain't walkin' no more
I said, tricks ain't walkin' no more, tricks ain't walkin' no more
And I can't get a break, don't care where I go

I got a store on the corner, sell this stuff cheap
I got a market across the street where I sell my meat
But tricks ain't walkin', tricks ain't walkin' no more
I said, tricks ain't walkin' no more, tricks ain't walkin' no more
And I can't get a break, don't care where I go

This way of livin' sure is hard
Duckin' and dodgin' the Cadillac-Ford
But tricks ain't walkin', tricks ain't walkin' no more
I said, tricks ain't walkin' no more, tricks ain't walkin' no more
And if you think I'm lyin', follow me to my door
