Down in the street there is violence 
And a lots of work to be done 
No place to hang out our washing 
And I can't blame all on the sun, oh no 
 
CHORUS: 
We gonna rock down to Electric Avenue 
And then we'll take it higher 
Oh we gonna rock down to Electric Avenue 
And then we'll take it higher 
 
Workin' so hard like a soldier 
Can't afford a thing on TV 
Deep in my heart I'm a warrior 
Can't get food for them kid, good God 
 
CHORUS 
 
Oh no... 
Oh no... 
Oh no... 
Oh no... 
 
CHORUS 
 
Who is to blame in one country 
Never can get to the one 
Dealin' in multiplication 
And they still can't feed everyone, oh no 
 
CHORUS 
 
Out in the street... 
Out in the street... 
Out in the playground... 
In the dark side of town... 
 
CHORUS 
 
Rock it in the daytime 
Rock it in the night ...
