Sally

Sally you opened out your arms 
To all those young men 
And girl you had room 
For every one of them 
You're the only girl 
on bowery and third 
Sure as hell you're the one 
who cared 
 
So put your hands together for sally 
She saved all those young men 
Put your hands together for sally 
She's the one who cared for them 
 
She's doing our dirty work 
She's the only one who cares 
Doing our dirty work 
Thirsty world one angry day, in new york 
 
Take a look at dave he was once seventeen 
Zoot suit and shinny shoes 
He ran around town 
and through his methylated laughter 
Most of his memories drowned 
But he remembers what his mommy use to shout 
She used to shout 
One day surely son 
The streets are gonna tire you out 
 
So put your hands together for sally 
She's the one who cared for him 
Put your hands together for sally 
She was there when his luck was running thin 
 
She's doing our dirty work 
She's the only one who cares 
Doing our dirty work 
Thirsty world, one angry day, in new york 
 
Tommy had a wife and family 
But the needle came between the love and the hard times 
Thank God for sally 
She was there through the misery 
Just a place to lay his head 
Just about better off than dead 
 
She's doing our dirty work 
She's the only one who cares 
Doing our dirty work 
Thirsty world, one angry dame 
 
Vince came up from the country 
Couldn't even find himself a room 
Thinking about his babies 
That's further away than the moon 
 
With no money but his pride in his pocket 
There's really no way he can go home 
There's a picture of his woman in his locket 
Most of all he doesn't want to be alone 
 
So put your hands together for sally 
She's the one who cared for him 
Put your hands together for sally 
She was there when his luck was running thin 
 
She's doing our dirty work 
She's the only one who cares 
Doing our dirty work 
Thirsty world, one angry day, in New York
