Pedro lives out of the Wilshire Hotel
he looks out a window without glass
The walls are made of cardboard
newspapers on his feet
and his father beats him
'cause he's too tired to beg

He's got 9 brothers and sisters
they're brought up on their knees
it's hard to run when a coat hanger
beats you on the thighs
Pedro dreams of being older
and killing the old man
but that's a slim chance
he's going to the boulevard

He's going to end up, on the dirty boulevard
he's going out, to the dirty boulevard
He's going down, to the dirty boulevard

This room cost 2,000 dollars a month
you can believe it man it's true
somewhere a landlord's laughing
till he wets his pants
No one dreams of being a doctor
or a lawyer or anything
they dream of dealing
on the dirty boulevard

Give me your hungry, your tired
your poor I'll piss on 'em
that's what the Statue of Bigotry says
Your poor huddled masses
let's club 'em to death
and get it over with
and just dump 'em on the boulevard

Get to end up, on the dirty boulevard
going out, to the dirty boulevard
He's going down, on the dirty boulevard
going out

Outside it's a bright night
there's an opera at Lincoln Center
movie stars arrive by limousine
The klieg lights shoot up
over the skyline of Manhattan
but the lights are out on the mean streets

A small kid stands by the Lincoln Tunnel
he's selling plastic roses for a buck
The traffic's backed up to 39th Street
the TV whores are calling
the cops out for a suck

And back at the Wilshire
Pedro sits there dreaming
he's found a book on magic
in a garbage can
He looks at the pictures
and stares at the cracked ceiling
"At the count of 3," he says
"I hope I can disappear"

And fly-fly away
from this dirty boulevard
I want to fly, from dirty boulevard
I want to fly, from dirty boulevard
I want to fly-fly-fly-fly
from dirty boulevard

I want to fly away
I want to fly
Fly-fly away
I want to fly
Fly-fly away (Fly -)
