ACTION IN THE STREETS

Version 2


Are you alive?
Are you alive?
Are you alive?
Are you alive?

Well don't move
Why don't you listen to what I'm saying
And hey you
You better get up if you plan to be staying
Get loose
You got to listen to what the band is playing
Oh tonight
There's action in the street all night
We're bopping to the big beat, go
Get up off your seat and roll

At school
The girls you know their dancing, Mister's just my speed
And hey cool
If action is the thing you need
Well don't fool
Satisfaction guaranteed
Oh tonight
There's action in the street all night
We're bopping to the big beat, go
Get up off your seat and roll

Well hey man
Yeah don't let the little girl slide
Understand
If you just move your body side to side
Raise your hand
Shout until you're satisfied
Oh tonight
There's action in the street all night
We're bopping to the big beat, go
Get up off your seat and roll


Performed several times on the Chicken Scratch tour, 1977. No know studio recording of this song exists, but could have been recorded for the Darkness On The Edge Of Town album. Ckeck also version 1.
