EAST side

 

Hannah and Krissy, Ally and Chloe

always covered in perfume fumes

Elly and Julie, hanging with the rich boys

in their polo shirts and jeans so blue

Lucy and Charlotte, Sally and Stacy

I only ever saw from a far

Sophie and Clancy

they never stopped dancing

around that champagne bar

 

You were born on the east side

I could never change that

You were born on the east side

It's a matter of fact

 

Lily and Laura, Kelly was boring

never read much philosophy

Holly and Helen, Anna and Abby

and the one who always wore sequins

I never could remember her name

Lauren and Maddy, they were almost sisters

they lived on the same avenue

Amy and Eleanor

were always on the east end

acting all righteous

like there so much better than you

 

You were born on the east side

I could never change that

You were born on the east side

spending all of daddy's pay cheques

You were born on the east side

I could never change that

you were born on the east side

it's a matter of fact

 

You could be laughing

I wouldn't care

fixed up in fashion

just to watch them stop & stare

 

You were born on the east side

I could never change that

You were born on the east side

spending all of daddy's pay cheques

You were born on the east side

I could never change that

you were born on the east side

it's a matter of fact
