	In this dirty old part of the city
	Where the sun refuse to shine
	People tell me there ain't no use in tryin'

Verse 1:

	Now my girl you're so young and pretty
	And one thing I know is true
	You'll be dead before your time is due
	[45: See  LP: Watch] my daddy in bed a-dying
	See his hair a turning grey
	He's been working and slavin' his life away
	(Yeah!) He's been workin' so hard
	(Yeah!) I've been workin' too, baby
	(Yeah!) Every night and day
	He's been work, work, work, work
	         (yeah  yeah  yeah  yeah)

	If it's the last thing we ever do

	2: Somewhere baby, somehow I know it

Verse 2:

	My little girl you're so young and pretty
	And one thing I know is true
	[1: Your gonna die  2: You'll be dead] before your time is due
	[45: See  LP: Watch] my daddy in bed a-dying
	See his hair a turning grey
	He's been working and slavin' his life away

	(Yeah!) Every day baby
	(Yeah!) Whoa!
	(Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah!)
