Down down down town, east side of the river
Bowery boys are living off the street
There stands a stranger all dressed in black
He`s looking for someone - he`s gonna knife `em in the back
Hit man, G-man, con man, watch it man, he might be from the CIA
Sneaky Pete`s using his feet, getting off the street `cos
He`s got something to hide

[Chorus]
Danger, there`s a stranger
Intruding in your own backyard
But stranger, there`s a danger
Don`t come across nobody hard

So tough mixing it rough down in Harlem
There`s no honky boys for miles around
But there`s that stranger all dressed in white
He`s looking for someone
He`s gonna show `em the light, yeah
He`s gonna show `em the light, oh yeah

Don`t feel safe using the face of Fifth Avenue
Pin stripe suits ain`t no disguise if you`re not a man that`s true
Hit man, G-man, con man, watch it man, he might be from the CIA
Sneaky Pete`s using his feet, getting off the street `cos
He`s got something to hide

[Chorus]
