Went down to Tin Pan Alley
See what was going on
Things was too hot down there
Couldn't stay very long

Hey hey hey hey
Alley's the roughest place I've ever been
All the people down there
Livin' for their whiskey, wine, and gin

I heard a woman scream
Yeah and I peeped through the door
Some cat was workin' on Annie with a
Lord with a two-by-four

Hey hey hey hey
Alley's the roughest place I've ever been
All the people down there
Livin' for their whiskey, wine, and gin

I heard a pistol shoot
Yeah and it was a 44
Somebody killed a crap shooter
'Cause he didn't shake, rattle, and roll

Hey hey hey hey
Alley's the roughest place I've ever been
All the people down there
Killin' for their whiskey, wine, and gin

I saw a cop standing
With his hand on his gun
He said, "This is a raid, boy
Nobody run"

Hey hey hey hey
Alley's the roughest place I've ever been
Yeah they took me away from that alley
And took me right on to the Pen
