We Gotta Get Out of This Place
In this dirty old part of the city
Where the sun refused to shine
People tell me it ain't no use in tryin'

My little girl, you're so young and pretty
And one thing I know is true
You'regonna die before your time is due

See my daddy in bed a-dyin'
See his hair a-turnin' grey
He's been workin' and slavin'
His life away I know

That he been working yeah
Everyday slavin' his life away
He been workin' baby it's been a
Work work work work

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

Mmm yeah
My little girl, you're so young and pretty
And one thing I know is true
You'll be dead before your time is due yes you will

See my daddy in bed a-dyin'
See his hair been turnin' grey
He's been workin' and slavin' his life away
Yes I know he's been workin'
Yeah he been workin' yeah
Whoa he's been
Work work work work

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
Oh baby

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
Ooh you know it, baby
And I know it too baby oh yeah
