E Street Shuffle

This song is by John Cafferty & The Beaver Brown Band and appears on the compilation Light of Day: A Tribute to Bruce Springsteen (2003).

This song is a cover of "The E Street Shuffle" by Bruce Springsteen.
Sparks fly on E Street when the boy prophets walk it handsome and hot
All the little girls' souls grow weak when the man-child gives them a double shot
The schoolboy pops pull out all the stops on a Friday night
Teenage tramps, skintight pants, do the E Street dance, everything's alright
Well, the kids down there, either dancing or hooked up in a scuffle
Dressed in snakeskin suits, packed with Detroit muscle
Doing the E Street shuffle

Now those E Street brats in twilight duel flashlight phantoms in full star stream
Down fire trails on silver nights with blonde girls pledged sweet sixteen
The newsboys say the heat's been bad since Power Thirteen gave a trooper all he had in a summer scuffle
Power's girl, Little Angel's, been on the corner keeping those crazy boys out of trouble
Little Angel steps the shuffle like she ain't got no brains
She's deaf in combat down on Lover's Lane
She drives all them local boys insane
Oh, yes, she does

Little Angel says, "Oh, oh, everybody form a line
Oh, oh, oh, everybody form a line"

Sparks fly on E Street when the boy prophets walk it handsome and hot
All them little girls' souls go weak when the man-child gives them a double shot
Little Angel hangs out at Easy Joe's, it's a club where all the riot squad goes when they're cashing in for a cheap hustle
But them boys are still on the corner loose and doing that lazy E Street shuffle
And as them sweet summer nights turn into summer dreams
Little Angel picks up Power and he slips on his jeans
They move on out down to the scene

All the kids are dancing
