Sham 69 Joey's on the Street Lyrics

Last updated:

As he combed his hair
The night called out his name
Like every hero he has to brag and show his fame
Well Joeys got to prove he's the leader of the pack
But once you start a running
There ain't no turning back
He's the kid that cried wolf and got the blame

So Joeys on the street again
But his freedoms running out
When you play with fire
One tear can put it out

Everybody wants Joey to act his age
But like an eagle he's locked in a parrots cage
Well Joeys got to prove he's the leader of the pack
But once you start a running
There ain't no turning back
He's the kid that cried wolf and got the blame

So Joeys on the street again
But his freedoms running out
When you play with fire
One tear can put it out

So he winks to the mirror
And brides don't wear his ring
Even if I could I'm still there try again

Well Joeys got to prove he's the leader of the pack
But once you start a running
There ain't no turning back
He's the kid that cried wolf and got the blame

So Joeys on the street again
But his freedoms running out
When you play with fire
One tear can put it out
