Lyrics of

Green flower street

	
Uptown
It's murder out in the street
Uptown
It's murder out in the street
That's where I found my mandarin plum
That's where you'd be if you found one

Where the nights are bright
And joy is complete
Keep the squeeze on Green Flower Street

Since May
There's trouble most every night
Since May
There's trouble most every night
Where once we danced our sweet routine
It reeks of wine and kerosene

[Chorus]

There's a special place for lovers

One we understand
There where neon bends in daylight sky
In that sunny room she soothes me
Cools me with her fan
We're drifting
A thousand years roll by

Lou Chang 
Her brother is burning with rage
Lou Chang 
Her brother is burning with rage
I'd like to know what's on his mind
He says hey buddy you're not my kind

[Chorus]
