I always had my eyes on you
But you came from across the line
I had to make good time to see you
But you had to pay the fine
All the boys on my side knew that, you were the shark
If you were found on the borderline you'd be shot in the dark
Don't wear those clothes again they don't make it in this crowd
Don't go out DTK you'll wear your best suit in the ground
We're meeting in a neutral zone
The last car on the train
The love you brought shaking up my bones and crawling through our veins
We always met at the edge of a blade and we left at the end of the fight
Of all the girls you've played and you laid
Why did this one have to be white?
They're gonna get you at 12 o'clock high
Got their sights set low on you
You better believe me I wouldn't lie
We better quit before you're through
They're gonna getcha at 12 o'clock high
Got their sights set low on you
You better believe me I wouldn't lie
We better quit before you're through

    General CommentIf I recall correctly, weren't The Sharks and The Jets the two rival gangs in West Side Story?

    General CommentYeah, that's right. This seems to be about the two secret lovers.

    But this line:
    Of all the girls you've played and you laid
    Why did this one have to be white?

    Seems to refer to a black/white difference. Weren't one of these guys Spaniens?
