"Street Life" as written by Will Jennings and Joe Sample....
I play the streetlife because there's no place I can go
Streetlife, it's the only life I know
Streetlife and there's a thousand parts to play
Streetlife until you play your life away

You let the people see, just who you wanna be
And every night you shine just like a superstar
That's how the life is played a ten cent masquerade
You dress, you walk, you talk, you're who you think you are

Streetlife, you can run away from time
Streetlife for a nickel or a dime
Streetlife but you better not get old
Streetlife or you're gonna feel the cold

There's always love for sale a grown-up fairytale
Prince Charming always smiles behind a silver spoon
And if you keep it young, your song is always sung
Your love will pay your way beneath the silver moon

Streetlife, streetlife, streetlife, streetlife

I play the streetlife because there's no place I can go
Streetlife, it's the only life I know
Streetlife and there's a thousand parts to play
Streetlife until you play your life away, ooh

Streetlife, streetlife, streetlife, streetlife

    General CommentHas anyone checked out the lyrics to this song? The music and arrangement sound exuberant and optimistic, but the lyrics are all about homelessness, drugs, prostitution and a short and unhappy life. It's not just another disco singalong!
