One Way Street
Aerosmith Lyrics


Hey look yonder
What's that I see
Well that old bogus, honey
Comin' after me

I goin' told you
Was out of town
I wonder how she knowed
I was hangin' around
Say, listen babe
Don't go wastin' your time
You keep comin' 'round
You'll hear the same old line

You got a thousand boys
You say you need 'em
You take what's good for you
And I'll take my freedom

'Cause lately it's been so hard
To make ends meet
And honey, you're headin' down a
One way street
And I gotta go the other way
(Heh, heh, heh)

I thought I knew her
My cagey lady
How come my sunshine
Was so damn shady
She'll say she love to talk
A conversation
But I'm the one
Who makes my situation

This one way city
That I thought I knew
It's such a pity, honey
That's it for you
'Cause lately it's been so hard
To make ends meet
And honey, you're headin' down a
One way street
And I gotta go the other way

There's nothing over here
I never showed you
I made it pretty clear
I'm glad to know you

You know your brother Spike
He's on the level
But you always lookin'
Like you're mad at the devil

Don't say I cop a 'tude
It's all forgotten
It's just you're much too rude
Your fruits are rotten

You know I work so hard to keep it alive
Now all I hear from you
Is nothing but jive

Lately it's been so hard
Now to make ends meet
And honey, you're headin' down a
One way street
And I'm goin' on the other way
Yes I do!

And lately it's been so hard
To make ends meet
And honey, you're headin' down a
One way street
And I really been feelin'
Like I could be movin' on

You're headin' down a one way street
You're foolin' everybody you meet
I said, you're headin' down a one way street
You're foolin' everybody but me
I said, you're headin' down a one way street
You're foolin' everybody you meet
I said, you're headin' down a one way street
You're foolin' everybody but me...
You got to get yourself back on your feet

Aladdin Sane

One of the ten greatest debut albums in rock history.

Bryan Smith

One of the BEST yet least known songs from Aerosmith.

DeadManRunning

@Bryan Smith Tyler all the way!

Lane Nordgren

@Anthony Davella cool. I know they were into the machine head album during the recording of this album. I always thought there was an influence in the solos here. Just great. Both Brad and Joe. This record was really raw yet well mixed and produced. The way it should be.

Anthony Davella

@Lane Nordgren I think Brad did most solos here? Dont matter, killer ass song. Not one band IMO had their 1st four albums anywhere near these guys.

Davey Buckyou

Agreed. Keep loving this song more and more everytime I hear it. Doesn't seem to lose it's Uumph.

Lefty Stevenson

What a fucking gem! Forgot about this song. Killer intro and killer progression. Love that out-ro! This is why old 70's heads like me love A'smith.

Lane Nordgren

This tune grooves. Great lyrics and the Blackmoreish solos by Brad and Joe. This whole album is so raw and gritty.

KENNETH ROSS REINA

THE! JOKESTER! SAYS OH FUCK YEAH!
