When Beauty Hit The Street

I never believed in a beauty

that was beyond time or grace

Till you came to leave your mark on this world

and put me in my place

Oh I’ve been wild about you woman

ever since the day we met

See I do for you just like you do for me

now baby for heaven we are set

 

(Chorus)

The sun never felt so good on my face

the air never tasted so sweet

And this town it never looked so good

till your beauty hit the street

And had me singing; ‘La Da Da Da ……’

 

These streets they’ve been getting so lonely baby

now that everyone’s out to score

There are those who trade love for money

and those trading money for more more more

And I’m broke in a city so broken

but that won’t stop my stride

See I’m rich as a lover

with my woman by my side

 

(Repeat Chorus)

 

Yesterday is dead and buried and tomorrow is yet to rise

So how ‘bout we do a bit of living honey while today is still alive

So won’t you wear that slinky number I’ll be as sharp as I can be

And we’ll dance these streets so beautiful, these streets made for you and me

And we’ll dance these streets so beautiful, these streets made for you and me

 

(Repeat Chorus)
