Hill­side Aven­ue

Hill­side Aven­ue, Jamaica Aven­ue
Was the sign I saw when I sud­denly thought
Your health is your life

Why why why was I think­ing that

Who’s gonna pay when the chil­dren start cry­ing
You’ll nev­er nev­er get away
Strange how the air that you’re breath­ing is dying
It’s gonna get rough, when I get to…

Hill­side Aven­ue, Jamaica Aven­ue
Was the sign I saw when I sud­denly thought
Your health is your life
Keeps you alive

Why why why was I think­ing that

When the rich man lies dying in his bed
He’ll be think­ing of the very words I said
When he’s lying there dying in his bed
He’ll be think­ing of the very words I said

Repeat!

Hill­side Aven­ue, Jamaica Aven­ue
Was the sign I saw when I sud­denly thought
Your health is your life
Keeps you alive
