Lyrics

Ah yeah huh..America the Beautiful Huh, yeah, let me introduce yall..to the Wildside Annie was a high school cheerleader Pom poms and bobby socks, no girl was sweeter Come Prom time everybody was on the line All the fellas swinging nickel and dime Tales about love and lust and trust But Annie took it all in stride Cause deep inside Annie had aspirations Wanted to be a chemical engineer Making 50 to 55 thousand a year Her first year of college was a success But along came Billy possessed and obsessed He took Annie on a fatal date And showed her things that make heartbeats accelerate Annie took a hit breathed two short breaths One for life..the last for death Now shes gone, a former Valedictorian Ended up becoming a topic for historians Washe up dreams and shattered pride All because Annie took a hit - on the Wildside

Ron had enough of being broke everyday Saying to himself, theres gotta be a betta way Cause 9 to 5 wasnt worth the headaches So Ron figured out a faster way to make - money Before you know it, hes a rich man Gold on every finger of his hand A brand new BMW, a condo, Ron ended up a John Doe A body was found in the alley but never clained Full of bullet holes but none to blame Ron became another victim of homicide Because he chose to walk - on the Wildside Charles had everything going for him A top paying job, a good life, a good wife A baby boy on the way any day A gentleman attitude is all he displayed Carol was the wife he loved and adored Her family and freinds treated him like an Ambassador One night on the other side of town A police dispatcher picked up a weird sound Charles on the car phone asking for help Claiming a burglar shot his wife and himself His pregnant wife lay slumped over Dreams corrupted and a young life over Extensive searches throughout the projects Put a lot of people through misery and wreck Everyone a suspect til someone was found Interrigated cause their skin was brown Then there was Bennett, guilty until proven so But soon as the case started moving slow What do you know, sure as as sea gull gets webbed toed Charles was the culprit The whole plot was an insurance scam Charles and his brother came up with a plan Kill Carol, collect a big check Blame it on a black man, what the heck? And just before the story was known Charles had a feeling that his cover was blown So he jumped offa bridge Committed suicide This is how it is - on the Wildside Little Tiffany, only thirteen Came to the city, place of big dreams Visiting family and friends for the summertime Sittin on a mailbox, watchin the boys climb trees And the girls play hopscotch So far, her vacation was top notch Then out of the blue, a Mercedes at top speed Gang bangers chasin the robbers on the stampede Quick as a blink shots rang out loud And a hail of bullets zipped through the crowd One hit Tiffany, and instantly she died Innocently - on the Wildside
