Lyrics:

Went down to Tin Pan Alley, see what was going on
Things was too hot down there, couldn’t stay very long
Hey hey hey hey, alley’s the roughest place I’ve ever been
All the people down there, livin’ for their whisky, wine, and gin

I heard a woman scream, yeah, and I peeked through the door
Some cat was workin’ on Annie with a, Lord with a two-by-four
Hey hey hey hey, alley’s the roughest place I’ve ever been
All the people down there, livin’ for their whisky, wine, and gin
I heard a pistol shoot, yeah, and it was a .44
Somebody killed a crap shooter cause he didn’t, shake, rattle, and roll
Hey hey hey hey, alley’s the roughest place I’ve ever been
All the people down there, killin’ for their whisky, wine, and gin

I saw a cop standin’, with his hand on his gun
Said “This is a raid boys, nobody run”
Hey, Hey, Hey, alley’s the roughest place I’ve ever been
Yeah they took me away from tin pan alley
And took me right back, to the pen
