Soldier in the city
Soldier in the city
Soldier in the city
Soldier in the city

No job to occupy my time
What else you expect me to do except cry?
It ain’t stealin’ if it’s someone else’s find
Refuse to lose with this trouble on my mind
Johnny Law come messin’ down my door
Well the police don’t scare me anymore
I been in that back seat so many times before

Soldier in the city
I'm a soldier in the city
Soldier in the city
I'm a soldier in the city

Tryna make some cheese outta all of these things
Wanna find a queen but all I’m seein’ is tramps
Every day feels like I’m away at boot camp
Tight ass little kids bustin’ down the street lamp
Neighbourhood hustler come knockin’ at my door
Gotta pay my debts, need to settle the score
Cause I don’t want no more trouble from these fellas anymore

Soldier in the city
I'm a soldier in the city
I'm a soldier in the city
Soldier in the city

Soldier in the city
I'm a soldier in the city
I'm a soldier in the city
Soldier in the city

Can you hear me marching
Left, left, left, right, left
Fight to survive, try to stay alive
You can you hear me marching
Left, left, left, right, left
Fight to survive, try to stay alive
Can you hear me marching
Left, right, left
Don't you know?
I'm a soldier in the city, I'm a soldier in the city
I'm a soldier in the city, I'm a soldier in the city
I'm a soldier in the city, I'm a soldier in the city
