Thread Name: Lyr Req: Down the Dark Alley
Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Down the Dark Alley
I learned the song in elementary school in Queens, NY.

I remember the first verse as:

The first night I met her, I met her in white
All in white, all in white,
I took her out that night
down the back alley where nobody goes

Insert other verses here that I have forgotten

The next night I met her, I met her in green
All in green, all in green,
She said the doctor's been
down the back alley where nobody goes.

Other verse? Brown or blue?


The next night I met her, I met her in red
all in red, all in red
she said the baby's dead
down the back alley where nobody goes


Last night I met her, I met her in check
All in check, all in check,
I wrung her bleeding neck
down the back alley where nobody goes!
