Lyrics:

Right-o! 
Hear dem say...ah ah ah! 
Dreadlocks can't live in a...tenement 

Dreadlocks can't live in a tenement yard 
Dreadlocks can't live in
Right-o! 
Hear dem say...ah ah ah! 
Dreadlocks can't live in a...tenement 

Dreadlocks can't live in a tenement yard 
Dreadlocks can't live in
Right-o! 
Hear dem say...ah ah ah! 
Dreadlocks can't live in a...tenement 

Dreadlocks can't live in a tenement yard 
Dreadlocks can't live in
something?
Hey man, nothing comes from nothing
Hey man, something came from somewhere

Hey man, it's a tenement song
Just there on the tip of your tongue
Now greetings to the world
Gangsta no live in a tenement yard
Rude boy no live in a tenement yard
Too much watchy, watchy, watchy
Too much su,
a part of my tenement symphony

The Cohen's pianola
The Kellys and their victrola
All warm the heart of my tenement symphony

The Campbells come
of the nation
Living in these tenements
Crying and applying to their council
For assistance every day
Now that their tribulation so sad
Now that their environment
a place we never came from
Walk on and listen to no one

I been thinking bout you lately
I'm lost and I'm lonely in the tenements of life 
I never really
the streets, the garbage lies
Protected by a million flies
The roaches so big you know that they got bones
They moved in and made a tenement home

I said
Tenement slum

You think that I don't feel love
But what I feel for you is real love
In other's eyes I see reflected
A hurt, scorned, rejected
the streets, the garbage lies
Protected by a million flies
The roaches so big you know that they got bones
They moved in and made a tenement home

I said
A tenement, a dirty street
Walked and worn by shoeless feet
Inside it's long and so complete
Watched by a shivering sun
Old eyes in a small
the nest 
That was life in a tenement square

I remember the song where the rats sang along 
And danced for their daily bread 
While the damp washed
the nest 
That was life in a tenement square

I remember the song where the rats sang along 
And danced for their daily bread 
While the damp washed
dingy tenement in Amsterdam, Holland you know, in the flat of a poor, impoverished family, but of rather good antecedants. Gretchen Crematante was a very
a where they're coming from 
African children 
Right here in a mean world guarded
African children 

All of the nation are
Living in these tenements
know a where ya comin' from 
African children 
Right here in a mean, wild world 
African children 

All of the nations are living in these tenements
the afternoon
And the old ladies swear
At the sun like a sauna
On the tenement stair

All the boys play the conga
There's a chill in the air
And yes,
heart strung up on clothing line through tenement windows in mid-July.
I've got my heart strung up on clothing line through tenement windows.

I'm
all argument

After me a live in a one room tenement
Walk pon de street wid I Ten Commandments
Face brutality and embarrassment
All because
tenement coming up dead

So my parachute is hanging around
I guess I bust it on the ground
Nothing helps me fall
Nothing helps me float
Today I want
the tenement's repair 
And he learned the hard way, life ain't ever fair 

Joe, he was a fighter, defender of the working man 
Rallied up the AFL-CIO
The miners
cat with a gat wanna bust one
Every guest want a plus-one

Every tenement's a penitent
Every tried man is innocent
Time served should be the cent spent
And it's falling even harder on your churches and your queens
Don't be falling hard on the tenement scene
Death is falling down on your work routine
