    Lyrics

    Outside the window the neon flashes
    In the morning light
    Down on the sidewalk there's a woman with a problem
    But she don't know how to fight

    She's destitute and broken down
    She softly whispers is there no one around
    And no one hears the sound
    Her knees give way and hit the ground

    This is the toughest street in town
    This is the toughest street in town
    This is the toughest street in town
    This is the toughest

    Like a rat in a pack it attacks
    From the back
    Through a crack in a track
    And you take a smack

    This Jack has had a hard day
    No one told him it would be like this
    He's had to score the hard way
    Working on twenty hour shifts

    This is the toughest street in town
    This is the toughest
    It's tough stuff
    This is the toughest street around
    This is the toughest
    Don't you do down
    No how

    It's just another black spot
    Where far too many people have died
    It's just another grave yard
    And there's not too many people left alive

    This is the toughest
    Are you tough enough
    This is the toughest
    Are you rough enough
    This is the toughest
    Can you bluff enough

    Just a minor misery did me no harm
    But it's there to warn, outside the window
    The neon is still flashing in the morning light
    Down on the sidewalk that woman was blown away
    Out of sight

    All across the city no one gives a damn
    All across the city no one seems to understand
    This is the toughest
    This is the toughest street in town
    This is the toughest street around
    This is the toughest
    Are you rough enough
    This is the toughest
    If I were you I wouldn't come around here
    This is the toughest
    This is the toughest
    Are you tough enough
