Supertramp Tenth Avenue Breakdown Lyrics

Well now how you doin’ do I know you

Are you living round here or just passing through

Seems like I met you before well how you do

Take care while you’re in there, the lights are low

Though the gals are good, they’re not the kind you want to know

Just sit back, and drink a stiff one – enjoy the show

They got nothing on me, nothing I can see, nothing that could do me wrong

Cos I’m in my disguise they’ll never get wise

Ain’t nothing that can cause alarm

One hit that’ll do you. You won’t look back

You’ll be feeling no pain. Put you right on track

Why don’t you do it again ah now you’re getting the knack

Let’s go to a new place, the lights look good

Reflecting the rain across the neighbourhood

Who’s that over there, looks like he’s up to no good

“Hey what you doing to me, is that a knife that I see

Well are you trying to bring me down

I’m a tryin’ to run but my legs are all numb

It’s like I’m messin’ with the wrong side of town”

You’re on the wrong station, you’re on the wrong track

You’ve lost your reservation, now you can’t get back

You’re getting a shake down, unlucky for you

Tenth Avenue breakdown…

“It’s getting rough, just too tough

I’m all abused and so confused

I’ve got to go, I feel so low, just can’t wait

It’s gettin’ late…”

[Spoken: Policeman’s words]

Get down now…

Put your hands behind your head……

You have the right to remain silent ….

Anything you say can be used against you ….

“Don’t know who came he just set upon me

It’s kind of vague and I’m, I’m kind of groggy

But you must believe me, he just stopped breathing

I didn’t do it, it wasn’t me

I know it wasn’t me”

Gettin’ late we can’t afford to wait

It’s gettin’ late we can’t afford to wait [repeat]

You’re on the wrong station, you’re on the wrong track

You lost your reservation and you can’t get back

You’re getting to shake down, unlucky for you

Tenth Avenue breakdown

It’s getting rough, it’s just too tough

I’m all abused and so confused

I’ve got to go, feel so low

Just can’t wait
