E I'd be too ashamed to meet you..if you came to B my block (my block.) B So, when we had a date, I'd meet you somewhere E in the heart of town. Am And when you took me home we'd go nowhere near E my block. B Cause I led you to believe that I lived in a E better part of town. #2. E Would you still love me if you should ever see me B on my block? (Shang-A-lang-lang..shang-A-lang-lang.) B The feeling that you feel would be lost among the E steel and stone. (Shang-A-lang-lang..shang-A-lang-lang.) Am E You never see a flower grow..oh, no, not on my, my, my, my block. (aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhhhh.) B And when the sun goes down a stranger shouldn't walk E alone. (Shang-A-lang-lang..shang-A-lang-lang.) (INTERLUDE:) E B E #3. E B After work one night beneath the lamppost light on my block (my block.) (Shang-A-lang-lang..shang-A-lang-lang.) B You suddenly appeared and I feared the little game I E played was through. (Shang-A-lang-lang..shang-A-lang-lang.) Am But when you took my hand it was so grand walking down E my, my, my, my block. (aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh.) B Then right before my very eyes my block became a paradise E with you. (Shang-A-lang-lang..shang-A-lang-lang.) OUTRO: Am E Walk up to my house and step inside..it's my block (my block.) Am E No more, don't have nothing more to hide..it's my, my, my, my block.. Am E Angels started dancing in the street..on my block..(Fade.) A sixties smash from Kraziekhat.
