wild in the streets lyrics – bon jovi

joey comes from a sacred part of town
where sometimes you talk so tough
your feet don’t touch the ground

and the sidewalk soldiers sing the midnight blues
while the old men recite their story lines
about when i was young like you

they say, “oh yeah, we were cruising to the back beat
oh yeah, making love in the backseat”

“we were wild, wild in the streets
wild, wild in the streets”

a member of the boys brigade
had a date with the girl next door
you know it made her daddy crazy
it only made her want him more

they weren’t looking for trouble
that boy didn’t want a fight, not tonight
so she headed out through her bathroom window
what her daddy didn’t know was gonna be alright

they said, “oh yeah, we’re cruising to the back beat
oh yeah, making love in the backseats
and ooh, we were”

“we were wild, wild in the streets
wild, wild in the streets
we were wild, wild in the streets
wild, wild in the streets”
rock me

sometimes this town ain’t pretty
but you know it ain’t so bad
just like a girl who looks so happy
when inside she’s so, so sad

in here we got this code of honor
no ones’s going down
you don’t walk in vain through the kids parade
’cause this is my hometown

wild, wild in the streets
wild, wild in the streets
we were wild, wild in the streets
wild, wild in the streets

yeah, we were wild in the streets
wild in the streets
wild in the streets
wild in the streets
wild in the streets

yeah, we were wild in the streets
wild in the streets
wild in the streets
wild
