Bon Jovi Wild In The Streets Lyrics

Joey comes from a sacred part of town

Where sometimes you talk so tough

That your feet don’t touch the ground

And the sidewalk soldiers sing the midnite blues

While the old men recite their story lines

About when I was young like you

They say: Oh yeah

We were cruising to the backbeat

Oh yeah, Making love in the backseats

We were wild, wild in the streets

A member of the boy’s brigade

Had a date with the girl next door

You know it made her daddy crazy

But it only made her want him more

They weren’t looking for trouble

You know that boy didn’t want a fight – not tonight

So she headed out thru her bathroom window

What her daddy didn’t know was gonna be alright

They said: Oh yeah

We were cruising to the backbeat

Oh yeah, Making love in the backseats

We were wild, wild in the streets

Wild, wild in the streets

Wild, wild in the streets

Wild, wild in the streets

Sometimes this town ain’t pretty

But you know it ain’t so bad

Just like a girl who looks so happy

Whe inside she’s so so sad

In here we got this code of honor

Nobody’s going down

You don’t walk in vain

Trough the kid’s parade

‘Cause this is my hometown
