Dillinger Four

Dillinger Four - No.51 Dick Butkus lyrics

rate me

Mother said i can't listen to Radio Havana

And i read with a flash light late that night

on these North side streets try avoiding the lights

Try avoiding any type of political fight

So alone are all these "new deal" homes

It can't only matter what you know

But how you let your anger show

Harold Washington in a garter-belt and stockings

Father wasn't picking sides

But dog-eared pages gave clues to the thoughts inside

The black sheep prince bowed for the crown today

Tried keeping things quiet, tried keeping things still

Tried keeping this conscience from an honest chill

Can tradition settle in like rust?

The record knows so let it show

That desperate is as clever does

Harry Carry making sick off Clark Street

Welcome to my 588-2300 empire.
