TENTH AVENUE FREEZE-OUT

Live 24 Jun 1993 version


One, two, one, two, three, four!

Ah, a little soul!

The Miami Horns!

One, two, three, four!

Teardrops on the city
Bad Scooter searching for his groove
Like the whole world walking pretty
You can't find the room to move
Everybody better move over, that's all
I'm running on the bad side
With my back to the wall

(Tenth Avenue freeze-out)
Say it, say it again
(Tenth Avenue freeze-out)

I was stranded in the jungle
Taking all the heat they were giving
The night is dark and the sidewalk's bright
Lined with the light of the living
From a tenement window a transistor blasts
Turn around the corner things got real quiet real fast
He hit me with a
(Tenth Avenue freeze-out)
Say it, say it again
(Tenth Avenue freeze-out)

Well, I'm all alone, I'm all alone
Well, I'm on my own, I'm on my own
And I can't go home
Come on!

They made that change uptown
And the Big Man joined the band
From the coastline to the city
The little pretties raise their hands
I'm gonna sit back right easy and laugh
When Scooter and the Big Man bust this city in half

(Tenth Avenue freeze-out)
Say it, say it again
(Tenth Avenue freeze-out)
Say it, say it again
(Tenth Avenue freeze-out)
Say it, say it again
(Tenth Avenue freeze-out)
Everybody form a line
(Tenth Avenue freeze-out)
Everybody form a line
(Tenth Avenue freeze-out)
Just one more time
(Tenth Avenue freeze-out)
Everybody form a line
(Tenth Avenue freeze-out)
Say it
Say it, say it, say it, say it (Tenth Avenue freeze-out)
Say it, say it, say it, say it (Tenth Avenue freeze-out)
Say it, say it, say it, say it (Tenth Avenue freeze-out)
Say it, say it, say it, say it (Tenth Avenue freeze-out)
(Ooh, ooh)
(Ooh)
Oh, yeah, it's all right, now

The 24 Jun 1993 Show

The 24 Jun 1993 show at Brendan Byrne Arena in East Rutherford, NJ, was the second-to-last of the World Tour 1992-1993. Billed as "A Concert To Fight Hunger", it raised money for several food banks and relief organisations in New Jersey and New York.
