Positively 4th Street

You got a lotta nerve

To say you are my friend

When I was down

You just stood there grinning

.

You got a lotta nerve

To say you got a helping hand to lend

You just want to be on

The side that's winning

.

You say I let you down

You know it's not like that

If you're so hurt

Why then don't you show it

.

You say you lost your faith

But that's not where it's at

You had no faith to lose

And you know it

.

I know the reason

That you talk behind my back

I used to be among the crowd

You're in with

.

Do you take me for such a fool

To think I'd make contact

With the one who tries to hide

What he don't know to begin with

.

You see me on the street

You always act surprised

You say, "How are you?" "Good luck"

But you don't mean it

.

When you know as well as me

You'd rather see me paralyzed

Why don't you just come out once

And scream it

.

No, I do not feel that good

When I see the heartbreaks you embrace

If I was a master thief

Perhaps I'd rob them

.

And now I know you're dissatisfied

With your position and your place

Don't you understand

It's not my problem

.

I wish that for just one time

You could stand inside my shoes

And just for that one moment

I could be you

.

Yes, I wish that for just one time

You could stand inside my shoes

You'd know what a drag it is

To see you

.
