Why can't I lay low
Why don't I stay home

Why is it always a fight
Why do I throw myself into the night
I'm on the outside
Now I ain't a bad guy

Why don't I button my lip
Why is it I always shoot from the hip
I cruise from Houston to canal street
I see the winds talking to themselves
Why is it everytime I go out
I guess I made an impression on somebody

I'm a big man on Mulberry street
Only at night when I'm light on my feet
What else have I got
Maybe a blind spot

I'm a big man on Mulberry street
I leave a big tip with every receipt
I'm so romantic
Sometimes I panic
