"White Houses" Lyrics

The Animals feat. Eric Burdon

White houses in neat little rows
Contrasting against the sky
Tumbled down black shacks over the tracks
Children so hungry they could cry
The chrome, the steel, the metal dream
Leaving the tee-pee to rot
The escapist young mind, left behind
Saving dimes for community pot

You better get straight
You better, better get straight, babe
I feel you better get straight right now, babe
Better get it, you better, you better get straight, babe

They're crying out for love
All the time
But they fail to see the neighbors eyes
The TV is on, 6 o clock news
And channels in full colored lies
The company meets, the president speaks
He's young but his bones creak
Young girl dresses for the high school dance
And the guy next door is dying for a peek

Get straight
You better, yes, you better get straight, babe
Oh, did you hear what I said?
I said to you, that you, you better, you better get it straight
You better, you better get straight
Yeah, before it's too late

They put a bible in a drawer
Of the motel room
And it's crying out to be read
But it stays right there, collecting dust
No one understands what's being said
Lovers make love in concrete boxes
What will tomorrow bring?
They've been told that it's wrong
But they don't give a damn
Soon another life it will bring

You better get straight, baby
Yeah, you better get straight, baby
Oh & I think I better get myself to get it, babe
You know what I mean
I've been at it so very long
I want to fly right
I want to do it all right
I want to get it
Get it, baby
You better get it
You better get straight right now
Because I've been told
And I'm telling you, baby
Pass it on
It's pretty good advice
