Street Life

14

I play the street life
Because there's no place I can go
Street life
It's the only life I know

Street life
And there's a thousand cards to play
Street life
Until you play your life away

You let the people see
Just who you wanna be
And every night you shine
Just like a superstar

The type of life that's played
A temptin' masquerade
You dress you walk you talk
You're who you think you are

Street life
You can run away from time
Street life
For a nickel or a dime

Street life
But you better not get old
Street life
Or you're gonna feel the cold

There's always love for sale
A grown up fairy tale
Prince charming always smiles
Behind a silver spoon

And if you keep it young
Your song is always sung
Your love will pay your way
Beneath the silver moon

Street life
Street life
Street life
Oh street life

I play the street life
Because there's no place I can go
Street life
It's the only life I know

Street life
And there's a thousand cards to play
Street life
Until you play your life away oh

Street life
Street life
Street life
Oh Street life

I play the street life
Because there's no place I can go
Street life
It's the only life I know

Street life
And there's a thousand cards to play
Street life
Until you play your life away

There's always love for sale
A grown up fairy tale
Prince charming always smiles
Behind a silver spoon

And if you keep it young
Your song is always sung
Your love will pay your way
Beneath the silver moon

Street life
Street life
Street life
Oh Street life

Street life
Street life
Street life
Oh Street life
Street Life Crusaders
The Crusaders is een Amerikaanse band, die vooral in het begin van de jaren zeventig bekend was. De groep voegde in haar muziek jazz, pop, rhythm-and-blues en soul samen. De laatste leden waren Wilton Felder (saxofoon) en Wayne Henderson (trombone). 

In 1954 kregen Joe Sample (piano), Felder en Stix Hooper (drums) les aan dezelfde middelbare school en samen begonnen ze de groep The Swingsters. Later kwamen Henderson (trombone), Hubert Laws (dwarsfluit) en Henry Wilson (basgitaar) de groep versterken en veranderde de bandnaam in The Modern Jazz Sextet.

Toen Sample, Felder, Hooper en Henderson in 1960 naar Los Angeles verhuisden, veranderde de band de naam in The Jazz Crusaders. Nadat de groep in 1961 een contract had getekend met Pacific Jazz Records, werd zij gedurende de jaren zestig vooral bekend door de combinatie van jazz, pop, R&B en soul: de samensmelting van trombone en saxofoon in de muziek werd in die jaren het handelsmerk van de band.
