He got a new mercy
Street corner preacher
He got 2 years off
Back in the neighborhood
There's two old ladies
He can see for sure
Though he walks thru the shadows
Back in the neighborhood

Bau, bau
Ah put it in
Put it ooh bop
Ah bau bau
Ah put it in
Ya ya
[Verse 2]
The need for livin it large
With a felony charge
Washin dishes
Of the lost inhibitions
The new, been addiction
From the waking death is his conviction
Well he seeks no favor
Workin for the savior
Every night the same old siren sound
Children, soldiers, in this battle ground
Ah bau bau
Ah put it in
Put 'em bop
A bau bau

Well a new sun
He unbolts the door
Young woman with a baby
Back in the neighborhood
But all around
Burnt out houses
Well his faith is his fountain
Back in the neighborhood

Whoa oh oh oh, oh

Bau, bau
Ah put it in
Put it ooh bop
Ah bau bau
Ah put it in
Ya ya
A new grace
With the angry face
For good behavior
Workin for the savior
