Year Two, Week Forty-Five: “Boulevard of Broken Knees”

Lyrics:

At the edge of town
in the shade of trees
sits the boulevard of broken knees
Step right up, place your bet
if you please

Take off you coat
Take off your cares
have a drink or two, the odds are fair
We pay what we owe
The house is more than fair

We got no place in here for knives and guns
We want peace on earth, god bless us everyone

At the edge of town
in the shade of trees
sits the boulevard of broken knees
Step right up, place your bet
if you please

Put your money up
for Archie Moore
I bet Clay knocks him out
in less than four
Any longer and this fight
will be a bore

We come from every corner
at least once or twice
Look, the mayor’s here shooting dice
Homecoming Queen on his shoulder
and boy does she look nice

But look this ain’t no kindergarten class
You talk out of turn, we’ll set fire to your ass

At the edge of town
in the shade of trees
sits the boulevard of broken knees
Step right up, place your bet
if you please

Membership is as fast as one two three
But once you’re in there’s no getting out, you see

At the edge of town
in the shade of trees
sits the boulevard of broken knees
Step right up, place your bet
if you please
I said step right up, place your bet
if you please
