Randy Crawford — Streetlife lyrics

I play the streetlife, because there's no place I can go
Streetlife - it's the only life I know
Streetlife - and there's a thousand parts to play
Streetlife - until you play your life away

You let the people see, just who you wanna be
And every night you shine, just like a super star
That's how the life is played a ten cent masquerade
You dress, you walk, you talk
You're who you think you are

Streetlife - you can run away from time
Streetlife - for a nickel or a dime
Streetlife - but you better not get old
Streetlife - or you're gonna feel the cold

There's always love for sale a grown-up fairytale
Prince charming always smiles behind a silver spoon
And if you keep it young your song is always sung
Your love will pay your way beneath the silver moon

Streetlife - Streetlife
Streetlife - Streetlife

I play the streetlife, because there's no place I can go
Streetlife - it's the only life I know
Streetlife - and there's a thousand parts to play
Streetlife - until you play your life away - ooh

Streetlife - Streetlife
Streetlife - Streetlife
