69th Street & Hoverdale (another visit)
 
Jigsaw Jake and Whiskey Jack
don't shoot anymore craps
Jake caught Whiskey with a pair that was stacked
put a nine inch blade in his back
Elana, Strawberry and Teri Jacks
all stopped sellin' that cat
Elana got married, got 2 kids, lives in Mossback
Strawberry OD'ed on some bad crack
Teri went down for 5 on bad checks
Fast Freddie Fingers is a big-shot
runs a used car lot
drives round town in a red Fiat
with a silicone blonde sexpot
sweet Lady Fay
passed away
I was the only one at her grave that day
that's all there is to say
Crazy Gump got some new meds
now he stays straight in the head
all his demons were shed
went back to his family in Homestead
Old Man Chi ain't chasin' The Twins no more
he retired now his son-in-law runs the store
Tony Garcia joined The Marines on a distant shore
Tommy went upstate doin' 15 for goin' hardcore
Big Hands Harry caught the virus
last I heard nothin' but a 90 pound carcass
Jamal The Turk
got his feelings hurt
caught up in a Terrorist Alert
deported back to where they wear skirts
Asian Dragons crashed and burned
all are now interned
no one showed any concern
and me....I still sit and observe
69th Street & Hoverdale
waitin' on the next generation
to succeed or fail
