Story behind the song
If urban gentrification keeps going the way it has, four dollars for a cup of coffee will seem like a bargain!
Lyrics
LOW RENT DISTRICT © Steve Suffet Where is the low rent district? Where are the tenement slums? Where can I find a cheap place to live? I don’t mind the winos and bums. Where can I find a cold water flat, For twenty-one dollars a week? Where is the low rent district? That is the housing I seek. Go away, old man, Go away, old man, Go away, old man, Go away. Where is the all-night coffee shop, Where I’d while away my time? I’m not naive enough To think coffee still costs a dime. But I don’t want to pay up to four smackeroos For what they call a venti of joe. Where is the all-night coffee shop? That’s where I want to go. Go away, old man, Go away, old man, Go away, old man, Go away. Where is the one dollar movie house, With gum stuck under the seat? And where is Tony’s barber shop? It used to be on this street. And where can I find the Land of the Free? And find the Home of the Brave? All I can see is the Land of the Rich, It’s becoming the Home of their Slave. Go away, old man, Go away, old man, Go away, old man, Go away. Go away, old man, Go away, old man, Go away, old man, Go away.
