Back Street Slide Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
Those backstreet women, watch what you say
You turn your back and they slide away
They run next door, they give it all away
Doing the slide
Verse 2
The backstreet slide, the backstreet slide
They're gonna get you, dead or alive
Stab you in the back with a kitchen knife
Doing the backstreet slide
Do it all day, the backstreet slide
Verse 3
Gatemouth woman leaning on the fence
She's got no teeth, she's got no sense
You don't need much intelligence
Doing the slide
Verse 4
The backstreet slide, the backstreet slide
They're gonna get you, dead or alive
Stab you in the back with a kitchen knife
Doing the backstreet slide
Do it all day, the backstreet slide
Verse 5
Slide over here, slide over there
Spreading that scandal everywhere
Stab you in the back and they just don't care
Doing the slide
Verse 6
Now slander is a loving tongue
They speak your name to everyone
Never is a curse left unsung
Doing the slide
Verse 7
The backstreet slide, the backstreet slide
They're gonna get you, dead or alive
Stab you in the back with a kitchen knife
Doing the backstreet slide
Do it all day, the backstreet slide
Verse 8
The backstreet slide, the backstreet slide
They're gonna get you, dead or alive
Stab you in the back with a kitchen knife
Doing the backstreet slide
Do it all day, the backstreet slide
