  1. In the mornin you go gunnin'
    for the man who stole your water
    and you fire till he is done in
    but they catch you at the border
    and the mourners are all singin'
    as they drag you by your feet
    but the hangman isn't hangin'
    and they put you on the street

    You go back Jack do it again
    wheel turnin' round and round
    you go back Jack do it again

    When you know she's no high climber
    then you find your only friend
    in a room with your two timer
    and you're sure you're near the end
    then you love a little wild one
    and she brings you only sorrow
    all the time you know she's smilin'
    you'll be on your knees tomorrow

    you go back jack do it again
    wheel turnin round and round
    you go back jack do it again

    Now you swear and kick and beg us
    that you're not a gamblin man
    then you find you're back in Vegas
    with a handle in your hand
    your black cards can make you money
    so you hide them while you're able
    in the land of milk and honey
    you must put them on the table

    you go back jack do it again
    wheel turnin round and round
    you go back jack do it again

  7. Good SD lyrics for a losing week...

    THIRD WORLD MAN

    Johnny's playroom
    Is a bunker filled with sand
    He's become a third world man

    Smoky Sunday
    He's been mobilized since dawn
    Now he's crouching on the lawn
    He's a third world man

    When youuuu come around......,
    No more pain and no regrets.
    Watch the sun go down.......,
    Smoking coke on cigarettes.
    There's no need to hide....,
    Living life the easy way.
    If I stay inside.....,
    I might live till Saturday.
     
  9. Throw out your gold teeth
    And see how they roll...
     
  10. He don't hang around with the gang no more
    He don't do the wild things that he did before
    He used to act bad
    Used to but he quit it
    It makes me so sad
    ‘Cause I know that he did it for me
    I can see
    His heart
    His heart is out in the street
    He don't comb his hair like he did before
    He don't wear those dirty old black boots no more
    But he's not the same
    There's something 'bout his kisses that tells me he's changed
    I know there's something missing inside
    Something died
    His heart
    His heart is out in the streets
    He grew up on the sidewalk streetlights shining above
    He grew up with no one to love
    He grew up on the sidewalk
    He grew up running free
    He grew up and then he met me
    He don't hang around with the gang no more
    Gee he doesn't smile like he did before
    I wish I didn't care
    I wish I'd never met him
    They're waiting out there
    So I got to set him free
    He's gotta be
    Out in the street
    His heart
    His heart is out in the street
    He don't hang around with the gang no more
    {He's out in the street}
    He don't hang around with the gang no more
    He don't hang around with the gang no more
    {He's out in the street}
    He don't hang around with the gang no more
