3 AM, Boston, walking home through the park
It’s the quickest way home even well after dark
Two men and their friend jumped out in front of me
The demand: my wallet for their rock

The demand: my wallet for some rock

The reply didn’t jive, the struggle took it’s place
The men tried to pin then the needle hit my skin
She got into my pocket, as I punched on in the face
She handed off the goods and then came the chase

She got in my pocket, pulled out my wallet
And handed it off for the chase
Not knowing what’s in it, I made the decision
And took off as if were on skates
Now closing the gap, his only reaction:
Throw down the goods full of spite
I looked down with pride, and looked what’s inside
Then I laid down my five for a pint
