All the Neighborhood Ruffians Say Hey

walkin’ the city streets – it’s about dusk

– a kid joins me on my left

– another at my right

what do you know – we’re now a small gang

more kids join in at the call

– literally, kids are calling their friends to join our parade

we’re now a slightly larger small gang

and there we go – off to traipse across town

what do we do you ask?

well what any legit gang does – we play together

we chatter really quickly

and we hold hands as we cross any street that is any sort of busy

we ride bicycles

and we learn new tricks

like how to eat almonds straight off the branch

or how to do multiple cartwheels – in a row


it’s a hard life – but oh so worth it

because we’re friends
