Cocaine and quiet beers, sweet candy and caramels.
Hide the pain and dry the tears on a street called buy and sell.

You know life turns like the endless stream. Death tolls like a vesper bell.
Children laugh and lovers dream on a street called buy and sell.

Ladies dress calico style, though beware your hearts when they smile
And the men walk shamelessly, aimlessly by.
Cinders in the daytime, junkyards in the sky, buy and sell.
Sell my goods to buy my roof, my bed, my roof, my bed.

Two pennies will buy a rose. Three pennies and who can tell
On a street that comes and goes by the name of buy and sell

You know life turns like the endless stream. Death tolls like a vesper bell.
Children laugh and lovers dream on a street called buy and sell.

Ladies dress calico style, well beware of your hearts when they smile
And the men walk shamelessly, aimlessly by.
Cinders in the daytime, junkyards in the sky, buy and sell.
Sell my goods to buy my roof, my bed, yes I will
Sell my goods to buy my roof, my bed

Two pennies will buy a rose. Three pennies and who can tell
On a street that comes and goes by the name of buy and sell
