Birth of the Blues Pt 2

(Qureshi/Wheatley)

 

I’m lying alive in the dead of the night

Listening to sirens with blue flashing lights

Bullets bark - another hit and run

Always someone at the wrong end of a gun

Nothing I can do, I’m watching the birth of the blues

 

City’s alive but for someone it’s just stopped

Out there in the night, a body just dropped

The price of life is cheaper than crime

Always someone in the wrong place and time

Nothing I can do, I’m watching the birth of the blues

 

Money talks – sets the odds

Dance with the Devil or walk with Gods

Heads they win, tails you lose

It’s the birth of the blues

 

Tyres squeal, sirens wail

From every church to every jail

Straight off the streets and onto the News  

It’s the birth of the blues

 

 

 

 

 

lying in bed in South East London, trying to sleep and listening to the sirens wailing with blue flashing lights - all thru the night - struck me i was listening to the birth of the blues coming around again
