Grant, Eddy - Electric Avenue Lyrics



Boy! Boy!

Now in the street, there is violence
And-and a lots of work to be done
No place to hang out our washing
And-and I can't blame all on the sun

Oh no, we gonna rock down to Electric Avenue
And then we'll take it higher
Oh, we gonna rock down to Electric Avenue
And then we'll take it higher

Workin' so hard like a soldier
Can't afford a thing on TV
Deep in my heart, I abhor ya
Can't get food for the kid

Good God, we gonna rock down to Electric Avenue
And then we'll take it higher
Ho, we gonna rock down to Electric Avenue
And then we'll take it higher

Oh no
Oh no
Oh no
Oh no

Oh God, we gonna rock down to Electric Avenue
And then we'll take it higher
Ho, we gonna rock down to Electric Avenue
And then we'll take it higher

Who is to blame in one country?
Never can get to the one
Dealin' in multiplication
And they still can't feed everyone

Oh no, we gonna rock down to Electric Avenue
And then we'll take it higher
Ho no, we gonna rock down to Electric Avenue
And then we'll take it higher

Ho, out in the street
Out in the street
Out in the daytime
Out in the night

Oh, we gonna rock down to Electric Avenue
And then we'll take it higher
Ho, we gonna rock down to Electric Avenue
And then we'll take it higher

Out in the street
Out in the street
Out in the playground
In the dark side of town

Ho, we gonna rock down to Electric Avenue
And then we'll take it higher
Hey, we gonna rock down to Electric Avenue
And then we'll take it higher

Ohh yeah
Rock it in the daytime
Rock it in the night
Rock it in my...

    Songs you once just passed in the face of our once great culture now turn into pieces of Gold. Just like all these Songs by Eddy Grant. Let us take us higher, electric avenue! Oh no!

    This song is really rocking. I was 10 years old when this song first came out. I am now 46 and a half years old and I still feel the same way. This song makes me just want to get up and dance. This song is so energetic. Eddy Grant is really great

  12. Irene CamargoMacedo

    The beat is worse than the son

  13. Nick Gallucci

    Maybe instead of looking at other countries to feed you .....maybe you should learn how to feed yourself ...how's that for an idea 🤔

  14. Shruggz Da Str8-Faced Clown

    I remember the video for this song being on heavy rotation on M-TV during that channel's first year of existence!
