In this dirty old part of the city
Where the sun refuses to shine
People tell me there aint no use in trying

Now my girl your so young and pretty
An one thing I know is true
You'll be dead before your time is due

See my daddy in bed a dying
See his hair is turning grey
He's been working and slaving his life away

He been workin so hard
Every night and every day
Oh I been workin too

[Chorus:]
We gotta get out of this place
If it's the last thing we ever do
We gotta get out of this place
Girl there's a better life for me and you

Now my girl your so young and so pretty
An one thing I know is true
You'll be dead before your time is due

See my daddy in bed a dying
Watch his hair is turning grey
He's been working and slaving his life away

He been workin so hard
Every night and day

[Chorus:]
We gotta get out of this place
If it's the last thing we ever do
We gotta get out of this place
Girl there's a better life for me and you

We gotta get out of this place
If it's the last thing we ever do
We gotta get out of this place
Girl there's a better life for me and you

We gotta get out of this place
If it's the last thing we ever do
We gotta get out of this place
Girl there's a better life for me and you
