Pete Seeger

"The New York J-D Blues"

J-D's a home made product, that's what the subway poster say
J-D's a home made product, that's what the subway poster say
How can you be a home made product, when you haven't a home anyway

Standing on the corner, till half past two or three
Well, standing on the corner, till half past two or three
One room ain't big enough, for seven other kids and me

I ain't got a father, mama waits for the welfare mail
Ain't got a father, mama waits for the welfare mail
Now sister's down on Times square, brother sits in jail

Now my sister work in Times square, brother sits in jail
Yes sistеr's hustling on Times
Square, my brother, my brothеr sits in jail
Mama's trying to make a living, with a mop and pail

No heat in the pipes, it's down to five below
No heat in the pipes, it's down to five below
Seven kids in one room, where am I gonna go

Sittin' up in high school, sniffing that airplane glue
Sittin' up in high school, sniffing that airplane glue
I got high for five, now I'm feelin' blue

Cop from the youth squad, the kids all call him "Batman"
This cop from the youth squad, kids all call him "Batman"
If any comes to talk to you, you better speak good American
