The Fire Down Below

Here comes old Rose, she's looking mighty fine
Here comes hot Nancy, she's stepping right on time
There go the street lights bringing on the night
Here come the men, faces hidden from the light
All through the shadows they come and they go
With only one thing in common
They got the fire down below

Here comes the rich man in his big long limousine
Here comes the poor man, all you got to have is green
Here comes the banker and the lawyer and the cop
One thing for certain it ain't never gonna stop
When it all gets too heavy
That's when they come and go
With only one thing in common
They got the fire down below

It happens out in Vegas, happens in Moline
On the blue blood streets of Boston
Up in Berkeley and out in Queens
And it went on yesterday and it's going on tonight
Somewhere there's somebody ain't treat somebody right

And he's looking out for Rose, she's looking mighty fine
And he's walking the streets for Nancy
And he'll find her everytime
When the street lights flicker, bringing on the night
Well they'll be slipping into darkness, slipping out of sight
All through the midnight
Watch them come and watch them go
With only one thing in common
They got the fire down below
Oh, the fire down below

It happens out in Vegas, happens in Moline
On the blue blood streets of Boston
Up in Berkeley and out in Queens
And it went on yesterday and it's going on tonight
Somewhere there's somebody ain't treat somebody right

And he's looking out for Rose, she's looking mighty fine
And he's walking the streets for Nancy
And he'll find her everytime
When the street lights flicker, bringing on the night
Well they'll be slipping into darkness, slipping out of sight
All through the shadow
Watch them come and watch them go
With only one thing in common
They got the fire down below
Oh, they got one thing in common
They got the fire down below
Oh, they got one thing in common
They got the fire down below
