Song Help


renzo

Recommended Posts

I was watching some program on TV the other day and in the background there was a familiar song that I've heard before playing. Trouble is I've no idea what it is and it's racking my brain! I always assumed the chorus went something like this:

 

'...Streetlight, its the only place I know,

Streetlight, its the only place I go...'

 

Turns out I'm wrong! Nothing shows up on google even remotely resembling it. I'm guessing it was sung by a 60's black female singer.

 

Anyone have any idea what I'm talking about?

Randy Crawford : Street Life, courtesy of google.

 

I know i've heard that in a movie before though. A tarantino flick maybe.

 

edit : Yep, Jackie Brown.

Did you try Streetlife?

 

I play the street life

Because there's no place I can go

Street life

It's the only life I know

Street life

And there's a thousand cards to play

Street life

Until you play your life away

 

You never people see

Just do you wanna be

And every night you shine

Just like a superstar

The type of life that's played

A temptin' masquerade

You dress you walk you talk

You're who you think you are

 

Street life

You can run away from time

Street life

For a nickel, for a dime

Street life

But you better not get old

Street life

Or you're gonna feel the cold

 

There's always love for sale

A grown up fairy tale

Prince charming always smiles

Behind a silver spoon

And if you keep it young

Your song is always sung

Your love will pay your way beneath the silver moon

 

Street life, street life, street life, oh street life

Hmm, Yeah, oh

 

I play the street life

Because there's no place I can go

Street life

It's the only life I know

Street life

There's a thousand cards to play

Street life

Until you play your life away

Oh !

 

Street life, street life, street life, oh street life...
