Went down to Tin Pan Alley
See what was goin' on
Things was too hot down there

Before the break a day
Before she can wash her face and hand
You know she really did go away

Somebody killed a crap shooter
'Cause he didn't shake, rattle and roll

With hand on his gun
Said this is a raid boy now
Run, run, nobody run
