Hey yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah
Oh, whoa, whoa, oh
Yeah yeah yeah yeah
Whoa, whoa oh

It seems we've lost our touch
Used to be so in love, yeah, uh
But somehow we've gotten off-track
And we never really got it back, no, yeah
I think we better find a way, yeah
And get right back to the good old days, good old days
Wanna make it to Heaven's gate, yeah (oh)
And we need to escalate, I need

I need direction (I need direction)
To that street called love (to that street called love, yeah)
Lead me to that road (trying to get home, yeah)
Trying to get home (oh, take me to love street, yeah)

Now life is gone and skipped a beat
Tell me where are all the dancing feet, yeah
Boy I tell you there's always something going on
Tell me why can't we all just get along
Keep struggling (yeah) just to get by, oh (oh)
So many hills, mountains to climb, yeah
We should all be ashamed of ourselves
'Cause if we don't love ourselves
Tell me how can we love somebody else?


Sunday morning (yeah)
People are dressed up (yeah)
Ready to go and have some, church
(And I remember feeling so joyful)
On the East side or the West side
Or the North side or the South side
You were at, church
(So tell me what is all this fighting for)
Somebody's always pounding out (whoa)
Somebody's always hanging bout (whoa)
(We have got to figure out how to get right back to love street)

[Chorus: x2]

Heard somebody say (Toot-toot-beep-beep)
Heard somebody say (Tell me how to get to love street) yeah
Heard somebody say (Toot-toot-beep-beep) yeah
Heard somebody say, yeah (Tell me how to get to love street) Yeah
Here we go, here we go, here we go

You make a right on L
Make a left on O
Come to a green light
And that's when you can go
You keep straight on V
Until you come to E
That's when you see a big sign that says
Welcome to Love Street

I need direction (welcome to my street)
To that street called love (yeah yeah [welcome] yeah hey)
Lead me to that road (Lead me to that road yeah)
Trying to get home (Oh yeah oh)

(Tell me how to get to love street)
Tell me, tell me, tell me, tell me, yeah, whoa
(Tell me how to get to love street)

Pied-piper, your music weatherman
It's love o'clock y'all
And y'all listing to the sounds of the Chocolate Factory
This next one goes out to the ladies
Ladies Night, Happy People baby
