This song is about a street that I live near. A lot of my friends think that the place is terrible. But it's not.
Let me show you a place I know, with a beautiful view.
Vintage cars, and resplendent stores, it's Cleveland Avenue.
You can sell your copper at 2 bucks a pound
Right at the exchange on the east side of town
Beer and wine quick from the northern lights
Have a barbecue with your neighbors at night.
Cause the lights shine bright as the stars at night at the blue diamond lounge.
And take a break at the Darbo estate, it's the best in town.
And west on Hudson, you can get your hair done, with some new attitude,
And stop for a read, at the Linden Library, on Cleveland Avenue.
Sophisticated ladies are dressed to the nines on the street.
Midnight gas station runs for smokes, who knows the people you'll meet.
Fresh laid asphalt that still smells of tar
Perfect for cruising the street in your car
Street side fish fry's a real good steal.
Church signs will sell you a brand new deal.
On Cleveland Avenue.
