Skank his pain away to the rhythm on the street

Friday night is the only time he's livin'
Woah that reggae music, it sounds so sweet

Fightin' every night with his switch blade knife
Cut up real bad, almost killed a man twice

Doin' what he likes to get by in his life
It's hard, the livin's tight, but he knows he's doin' right

Feels the music hitting', drifin in from far away
Takes him to the past, a flash, a boy back in the day
Takes him to a time in his life when things were simple
Livin' on the street, now he lives his life in limbo
Wakes up in the morning and he wonders why he tries
