    Lyrics

    Funky beats, Barrow Street
    Walking with your dog

    I see you, You see me
    Then we stop & talk

    Later on, some cafe
    Thinking what you said

    Children laugh, telling jokes
    'Till their eyes are red

    The people feel so good
    Say boy, say girl
    All in my neighborhood
    Say boy, say girl
    We got peace, love & monkey business
    Gonna reach the very top
    There'll be pride, hope & Sunday mornings
    All the things I'm thinking of
    We could change the world
    In the night while we are sleeping
    The Power's in my neighborhood

    Liquor stores, stop & shop
    Old folks sit outside
    Restaurants - Laundromats
    She's still on my mind

    April, May, June, July
    August comes around
    Pretty soon, a years gone by
    And we're still hanging out

    The people feel so good
    Say boy, say girl
    All in my neighborhood
    Say boy, say girl
    We got peace love & monkey business
    Gonna reach the very top
    There'll be pride, hope & Sunday mornings
    All the things I'm thinking of
    We could change the world
    In the night while we are sleeping

    Now the rich get richer
    & the poor stay poor
    & folks get restless
    If it don't change soon

    But there's a sweet sensation
    Turnin bad to good
    & things get better
    In my neighborhood

    So burn on - you little candle - put your light into my head
    There's a lone wolf - on the mountain - he's the friend you never had
    We got peace, love & monkey business - gonna reach the very top
    There'll be - pride, hope & Sunday mornings - all the things I'm thinking of

    So, come on down
