Featuring Randy Crawford. I play the street life Because there's no place I can go Street life It's the only life I know Street life And there's a thousand cards to play Street life Until you play your life away. You never people see Just who you wanna be And every night you shine Just like a superstar The type of life that's played A temptin' masquerade You dress you walk you talk You're who you think you are.
