Lyrics

How you doing bro – is New York
Holding you up, or is it letting you down?
I have
Missed you all heaps and I’ve re-
Planted my feet back in the underground

I’m a hustler
Hustler!
I’ll never give up the underground

I came back to pay respect
To another fallen angel
At the old canteen
Someone had to float the cash
To pay up for the wake and so we all agreed

We’re all hustlers
Hustlers!
We all came up in the underground

I try and get some love from up high
There just ain’t enough to go around
Someone had to pay up for the wakes
Taking place down in the underground

I try and get some love from up high
There just ain’t enough to go around
Someone had to pay up for the wakes
Taking place down in the underground
