Lyrics Edit

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
  Them schoolboy pops pull out all the stops on a Friday night
  The teenage tramps in skintight pants do the E Street dance and everything's all right
  Well the kids down there are either dancing or hooked up in a scuffle
  Dressed in snakeskin suits packed with Detroit muscle
They're doin' the E Street Shuffle
Now those E Street brats in twilight duel flash like 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
And Power's girl, Little Angel, been on the corner keepin' those crazy boys out of trouble
Little Angel steps the shuffle like she ain't got no brains
  She's death in combat down on Lover's Lane
She drives all them local boys insane
Little Angel says, "Oh, oh, everybody form a line
Oh, oh, everybody form a line"
  Sparks light on E Street when the boy prophets walk it handsome and hot
  All them little girls' souls grow 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 cashin' in for a cheap hustle
But them boys are still on the corner loose and doin' that lazy E Street Shuffle
  As them sweet summer nights turn into summer dreams
Little Angel picks up Power and he slips on his jeans
  And they move on out down to the scene
All the kids are dancin'
