Donnie Iris — 10th Street lyrics

Me and Pooch we were from the west end of town
And all the kids on the streets used to hang at the corner playground
There was Billy and Bobby and Rikki the Knife
And the girl I swear I'd love till the day I died
In the summers outta school you knew just what to do

On 10th Street
There's no school like my old school
On 10th Street
There's no food like the greasy spoon
On 10th Street
There's no bar like Crazy Lou's
On 10th Street
I wish that I could go back home

I didn't want to be your whipping post
But I pledge my love to the girl I love the most
And old pal Bonio he was straining his neck
I guess you got a little lovin' but you lost your respect
Yeah me and Pooch we were laughin'
Yeah we always had a ball

On 10th Street
Life was so simple then
On 10th Street
I miss all my good old friends
On 10th Street
Give me a house with a picket fence
On 10th Street
That's my America

But now they put up a parking lot
They made the people all get out
Damn the man with a plan to put an end
I said damn the man with a plan to put an end to
10th Street

On 10th Street
Life was so simple then
On 10th Street
I miss all my good old friends
On 10th Street
Give me a house with a picket fence
On 10th Street
That's my America

God Bless America
God Bless America Yeah
On 10th Street
God Bless America
