lyrics

Friday night on the east side
The Swan was rockin, I had a good time
They said don’t go to that part of town
But the Chumps threw down and everything was fine
Then came a noise from the Flash Boys
and my girls went kinda wild
Took a swing at the fatty from San Antone
Fat Dallas screamed you better leave her alone
A Lone Star hit me upside the head
I spun around, and somebody said

12th and Chicon! 12th and Chicon!
Go mama go daddy do your thing
12th and Chicon! 12th and Chicon!
East side people just do your thing

Crazy lady in the middle of the road
Spitting on cars if you don’t pay the toll
Hobo Joe with a wheelie-cart load
It’s all down hill so he’s on a roll
Big Daddy Long Legs shuckin’ jive
I’ll be lucky if I get home alive

12th and Chicon! 12th and Chicon!
Go mama go daddy do your thing
12th and Chicon! 12th and Chicon!
East side people just do your thing

Big Mama’s at the bus stop
Twisting a tube top
Big Daddy’s in the alley
Counting up the tally

Go mama go daddy do your thing
East side people just do your thing
I don’t come over here to drop a dime
I just come over to have a good time

12th and Chicon
Trying to find my way home - from 12th and Chicon
Always gotta push my luck
Once again I'm on my own - down 12th and Chicon
12th and Chicon
Trying to find my way home - from 12th and Chicon
Always gotta push my luck
Once again I'm on my own
12th and Chicon, 12th and Chicon
12th and Chicon, 12th and Chicon
