      About "Street Jesus"

      Lyrics for Aerosmith - "Street Jesus"

      Hey have you heard the news?
      Somebody stole my shoes
      And I could smell the booze
      How indiscreet
      And though I had a plan
      After that thief outran
      Into another man
      Who had no feet

      I swear to God that day
      That guy with no feet say
      “You got to walk my way”
      “That’s how it’s planned”
      That’s when I thought, “good grief”
      J-Just ain’t my belief
      Until I saw the holes
      Inside his hand

      Street Jesus
      Street Jesus

      Come on, come on, what you think about life?
      Demon in heaven gotta carry a knife
      You said to me, “no, that ain’t the plan”
      With a smile on his face and the holes in his hand

      Wise man tell ya what they’re reading from a scroll
      But things kinda change when the story gets told
      They tell it like it is to everybody they meet
      Just to sing it in the church what they’re preaching in the street

      Placate and vacate your mind
      Too late to make hate you’ll find

      Streeeeeeeet Jeesuuuus
      Streeeeeeeet Jeesuuuus

      Good God Almighty, s’posed to be about love
      You must’ve wished upon me by kissing the glove
      I’m a high-stepping lover, sharp as a knife
      I’m a pink flamingo on a great long life

      A wise man, poor man, beggar man too
      You bet your bottom dollar but whatcha gonna do?
      I can make up daylight jealous of the night
      I try to play the game but I never get it right!

      Placate and vacate your mind
      Too late to make hate you’ll find

      When you wonder what’s up
      With your half empty cup
      Say tell him “don’t give up,
      “Reach for the stars”

      You think you’re so street wise
      Just pray and close your eyes
      Until we colonize
      The moon and stars

      But wouldn’t it be great
      If we could wipe the slate
      When we all live in hate
      And all this fear

      So please don’t call me “sir”
      If you’re whole life’s a blur
      And Mr. Bartender
      Another beer

      Sometimes it’s hard trying to keep up the pace
      The train kept a rollin’ when you’re trying to win the race
      If you don’t believe me, wanna stay in the game
      You gotta know who from the heavens came

      They tell it like it is to everybody they meet
      'Cause they’re singing in the church what they’re preaching in the street
      If you wanna give ‘em hell then you tell it from the steeple
      But I’d rather be a priest so I can scream it to the people

      Placate and vacate your mind
      Too late to make hate you’ll find
      You won’t get too many tries
      Love is the love of my life

      Streeeeeeeet Jeesuuuus
      Streeeeeeeet Jeesuuuus

      Streeeeeeeet Jeesuuuus
      Streeeeeeeet Jeesuuuus

      Streeeeeeeet Jeesuuuus
      Streeeeeeeet Jeesuuuus
