2nd Street
 
The weary work for food
out in the lone star state.
Talking in tongues about tropical girls,
down on Second Street.
 
Where the living is hard.
 
Longer horns on that Mercedes Benz
might you never see.
Well heeled Texana never tarries
down on Second Street.
 
Where the living is hard.
 
Austin, Texas by the lake,
rich kids ski, legislators drink.
They huddle close against the cold,
down on Second Street.
 
Dying's easy, but the living is hard.
Tie a knot in that rope, hold on tight...
