THE E STREET SHUFFLE

Live 23 May 2009 version

[Spoken intro:] Let's go!

Sparks light on E Street where the boy prophets walk it handsome and hot
All the little girls' souls grow weak when the man-child hits 'em with a double shot
Schoolboy pops pull out all the stops on a Friday night
Teenage tramps in skin-tight pants do the E Street dance, it's all right
Little kids down there are either dancin' or hooked up in a scuffle
Dressed in snake-skin suits packed with Detroit muscle
Doin' the E Street Shuffle

Those E Street brats in twilight duel flashlight stars with in full star stream
Down fire trails on silver nights with blonde girls pledged sweet sixteen
Newsboy says the heat's been bad since Power Thirteen gave a trooper everything he had in a late summer scuffle
Power's girl, Little Angel's on the corner late and lazy, doin' that crazy E Street Shuffle
Little Angel steps the shuffle like she got no brains
She's deaf in combat down on Lover's Lane
She drives the boys insane
All right, here we go!
Little Angel say, "Whoa, whoa, yeah
(Whoa, whoa, yeah)
Yeah, everybody form a line
Whoa, whoa, yeah
(Whoa, whoa, yeah)
Yeah, everybody form a line"

One, two, three!
Sparks light on E Street where the boy-prophets walk it handsome and hot
The little girls' souls grow weak when the man-child gives 'em a double shot
Little Angel hangs out at Easy Joe's, it's a joint where all the riot squad goes when they're tryin' to cash in on a late summer hustle
Them boys are on the corner, loose and lazy, doin' that crazy E Street Shuffle
As the sweet summer nights turn into summer dreams
Little Angel picks up Power, slips on his jeans
They move on down to the scene
All the kids are dancin'
Little Angel said, "Whoa, whoa, yeah
(Whoa, whoa, yeah)
Yeah, everybody form a line"
Whoa, whoa, yeah
(Whoa, whoa, yeah)
Yeah, everybody form a line
Whoa, whoa, yeah
(Whoa, whoa, yeah)
Oh, yeah, everybody form a line
Whoa, whoa, yeah
(Whoa, whoa, yeah)
Yeah, everybody form a line
