Tenth Avenue Breakdown

Supertramp

Well now how you doin'
Do I know you
Are you living round here
Or just passing through
Seems like I met you before
how do you do
Take care while you're in there
The lights are low
Though the gals look good
They're not the kind you wanna know
Just sit back, 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
There's nothing that could 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 cha' doin' 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
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
10th Avenue breakdown

It's getting rough, yes too tough, I'm all abused, and so confused
I gotta go, feel so low, just can't wait, it's gettin' late

Don't know who came
He just set upon me
It's kind vague
And I'm kinda 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

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
10th Avenue breakdown

It's getting rough, yes too tough, I'm all abused, and so confused
I gotta go, feel so low, just can't wait, it's gettin' late
