Solider in the city
Solider in the city
Solider in the city
Solider in the city

No job to occupy my time
What else you expect me to do except crime
It ain't stealing if it's somebody's fair
Refuse to lose with this trouble on my mind

Join it all
Come ?
Where the police don't see me anymore
Hopped in that backseat so many times before

Solider in the city
I'm a solider in the city
Solider in the city
Solider in the city

Trying to make some cheese out of all these things
Want to find a queen but all I'm seeing is tramps
Everyday feels like I'm away at boot camp
Bad ass little kids busting out the street lamp
Neighborhood hustler come knocking at my door
Got to pay my debts, need to settle the score
Cause I don't want no more trouble from these fellas no more

Solider in the city
I'm a solider in the city
Solider in the city
Solider in the city

Solider in the city
I'm a solider in the city
Solider in the city
Solider in the city

Can you hear me marching
Left, left, left, right, left
Fight to survive, try to stay alive
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 solider in the city, I'm a solider in the city, 
I'm a solider in the city, I'm a solider in the city, 
I'm a solider in the city
