Description
Once upon a time Anomalous posted a tune (MJ70588) and I believe we dialogued back and forth about my version ... don't remember how it all went ... but I seem to have a few messages to him that were never read ... so what the heck .. thought I would post this anyway .. and if he tells me to take it down I will ... hahahaha

Lyrics
Take me to your leader – said the freak on the street
A tin foil hat and swearing a mean streak
Baby can you spare a smoke – I see you’ve got a pack
I need to eat some dinner means I need to score some smack

Street People – Street People

Street People are the craftiest – the smartest of the lot
They can play your heartstrings – take all the dough you’ve got
They can be a bleeding heart – Make you feel real bad
When they’re at your house – you realize you’ve been Had

Street People – Street People

Looking for a handout – looking for a bed
playing on your sympathies – messin with your head
Sister Sister can you help a friend in need
Can’t you see me crying – can’t you see me bleed

Street People Street People

Give me a clean needle so I can find my bliss
want you to take care of me so I can stay like this
I don’t wanna go to work and listen to the man
I just wanna live my life thats my master plan

Street people Street people

I will be a leech - a drain on society
I will be your problem - you can pay for me
If you will not give it free – I will find a way
To steal your wallet – either way you’ll pay

Street People Street People

Great photo ;-)
I'm presuming the lyrics are yours and they're wonderful; I especially like the fadeout mumbling at the end. This is not a pretty song and your growly voice seems perfect both for the subject and the genre. Did you gargle with some cognac after recording it? Cool post Alannah: keep 'em coming.
Check out my latest song called afternoon in heaven

The lyrics are mine yet ....
... a lot of musician pals of mine tend to play gigs in the seedier part of town sometimes .... the venues which don't cost an arm and a leg to get into .... hence one encounters "the element" when trying to support my pals ..... I got inspired .....

Smartest of the lot
Here in Austin they panhandle at intersections, major traffic lights. Some of them look like they should be able to go to day labourer place and earn an honest day's wages, and others look like showing up with a clever sign is the extent of their capabilities, although that may very well be an act.

Which is more or less what you're saying too. Your way grooves more.
Check out my latest song called Raggedy Ann's Ragtime (original version)
Alannah said 1470 days ago (March 16th, 2013)
Thanks Vic ....
... generally they are harmless .... just cost ya some cigarettes ..... its the ones who are doing the windshield thing at intersections like you say that you gotta watch out for .....

On fire!
There comes a time when enough is enough and you just have to post it.

Besides - nobody seems to be holding back anything on this rowdy rocker.

Whoa! You have channelled your inner Janis Joplin on this raucous song. Very intense! I was ready to reach for the fire extinguisher to hose down my speakers : )
Check out my latest song called Mind's Eye
Alannah said 1470 days ago (March 16th, 2013)
hahaha Thanks Warren ....
.... my inner Janis seems to pop out every now and again .... can't keep her down !
