"Solano Avenue" as written by and Norman Cook David Byrne....
What did I do to make you mad?
I swear I only told the truth
And none of this could hurt you now
And it's no insult to be poor

So take back all your money
Although I need it more than you
Just acknowledge that you knew me
On Solano Avenue, oh

I didn't mean you any harm
I didn't mean to bring you shame
It's not a sin that we had nothing
You and I were not to blame

When they teased you on the street
When they hurt you deep inside
To me it was that you came running
And I held you when you cried

So take back all your money
Although I need it more than you
Just acknowledge that you knew me
On Solano Avenue, oh

What did I do to make you mad?
I swear I only told the truth
And none of this could hurt you now
And it's no insult to be poor

So take back all your money
Although I need it more than you
Just acknowledge that you knew me
On Solano Avenue, oh

I didn't mean you any harm
I didn't mean to bring you shame
It's not a sin that we had nothing
You and I were not to blame

When they teased you on the street
When they hurt you deep inside
To me it was that you came running
And I held you when you cried

So take back all your money
Although I need it more than you
Just acknowledge that you knew me
On Solano Avenue, oh
