  1. POOR SIDE OF TOWN

From the recording POOR SIDE OF TOWN

This is a psecial one to me: I used to sing it in The Grodes as a duet medley with Patti Grode: Poor Side of Town and Hello Stranger (our Billboard Hot 100 SMASH [okay okay so it went to #100])!

Lyrics

Do-doo-doo-wah shoo-be-doo-be Do-doo-doo-wah shoo-be-doo-be How can you tell me How much you miss me When the last time I saw you You wouldn't even kiss me That rich guy you've been seein' Must have put you down So welcome back baby To the poor side of town To him you were nothin' But a little plaything (was a plaything, doo wah) Not much more than An overnight fling (overnight fling, doo wah) To me you were the greatest thing This boy had ever found And girl it's hard to find nice things On the poor side of town I can't blame you for tryin' I'm tryin' to make it too I've got one little hang up, baby I just can't make it without you (without you, without you) So tell me Are you gonna stay now (will you stay now, doo wah) Will you stand by me girl All the way now (all the way now, doo wah) With you by my side They can't keep us down Together we can make it baby From the poor side of town (So tell me how much you love me) (Come be near to me and say you need me now) Oh, with you by my side This world can't keep us down Together we can make it baby From the poor side of town
