lyrics

Mother well she couldn't keep it straight
always flying high before the evening
no father figure showing him the way
never had a proper education
17 running in the street
finger on his trigger for protection
dirty deeds cos he gotta eat
and sex and crack substitute for affection

Chorus
Reward for riches
penalty for poverty
that's how its going down, (that's how the system goes)
living in the city

Baby mother trying to hold it down 
on the JSA and working two jobs
They could lock her up if it got round
technically they call it benefit fraud
then she meets a man who seems to care
shows her ways to earn some easy money
every day the whispers and the stares
well she's got to survive man it isn't funny

Repeat Chorus

the London eye can see from Croydon to Piccadilly
sharks, tramps and thieves walking the streets
if you have the pounds welcome to our London town 
got no clout best watch out 
we'll chew you up and spit you out
