lyrics

Well she shakes her ass down where the pipeline of cash spills dollars out on the stage
When I came around you know that's where I found her at a little place called P.J.'s
She came up in '08 man, lookin' for work and tryin' to find a place to crash
Now she's dealing blow out of the back of the show and livin' down on 10th ave

CHORUS:
She's an angel on Bus #7
A ballerina with a switchblade scar
Man you know she ain't no uptown girl
She's the queen, queen of Spenard

I met her 'round 4, I was just lookin' to score some dope and be on my way
But the warmth of her smile made me linger a while and her humor made me stay
She was a Belfast bomb with ginger curls, man, she had me enticed
She was 32 and I was ten years her junior but I had to roll the dice

We hung out the night through and I could tell that she knew exactly what I was thinkin'
When I said there ain't no love at the bottom of the jug of Monarch that you've been drinkin'
She told me baby, I don't need no savin' 'cause I'm doing fine on my own
So I walked away with my heart in my hands and my last dollar up my nose.
