Doobie Brothers — Takin' It To The Streets lyrics

Michael McDonald

You don't know me but I'm your brother
I was raised here in this living hell
You don't know my kind in your world
Fairly soon the time will tell
You...telling me the things you're gonna do for me
I ain't blind and I don't like what I think I see

Takin' it to the streets (takin' it to the streets)
Takin' it to the streets (no more need for runnin')
Takin' it to the streets (Oh, oh-oh, nah, nah)

Take this message to my brother
You will find him...everywhere
Wherever people live together
Tied in poverty's despair
Are you...telling me the things you're gonna do for me
I ain't blind and I don't like what I think I see

Takin' it to the streets (takin' it to the streets)
Takin' it to the streets (no more need for runnin')
Takin' it to the streets (takin it to the streets)
Takin' it to the (BREAK)

Are you...telling me the things you're gonna do for me (yeah, hah)
I ain't blind and I don't like what I think I see

Takin' it to the streets (takin' it to the streets)
Takin' it to the streets (no more need for runnin')
Takin' it to the streets (Ah, yeah)
Takin' it to the streets (takin' it to the streets)
Takin it to the streets (we'll discuss it further)
Takin' it to the streets (Ah, nah)
Takin' it to the streets (takin' it, takin' it)
Takin' it to the streets (hey, yeah, now)
Takin' it to the streets (Takin'...it to the streets)
Takin' it to the streets (no more need for runnin')
Takin' it to the streets (no more need for hidin')
Takin' it to the streets (ah, yeah, yeah)
Takin' it to the streets (no...more)
Takin' it to the streets (yeah, yeah)
Takin' it to the streets (takin' it, takin' it)
Takin' it to the streets (aaaaahhh)
Takin' it to the streets (takin' it, takin')
Takin' it to the streets (no more need)
Takin' it to the streets (takin' it, takin' it)
