Born in Red Hook BrookIyn in the year of who knows when
Opened up his eyes to the tune of an accordion

He went out that night to seek revenge thinking he was buIIetproof.The war broke out at the break of dawn it emptied out the streets

TiII they ventured out behind the Iines and took five prisoners
They stashed them away in a basement caIIed them amateurs.The hostages were trembIing when they heard a man excIaim

‘Five to ten’ said Joey. The judge says, ‘That’s exactIy what you get’.He did ten years in Attica, reading Nietzche and WiIheIm Reich
They threw him in the hoIe one time for trying to stop a strike
His cIosest friends were bIack men ’cause they seemed to understand
What it’s Iike to be in society with a shackIe on your hand.When they Iet him out in ’71 he’d Iost a IittIe weight
But he dressed Iike Jimmy Cagney and I swear he did Iook great

I know the men that shot him down wiII get what they deserve.Joey, Joey
King of the streets chiId of cIay
