Lyrics

Stoop Kid's afraid to leave his stoop
Stoop Kid's afraid to leave his stoop
Stoop Kid's afraid to leave his stoop
Stoop Kid's afraid to leave his stoop

Look at Stoop Kid sitting over there with his head hung low
Hey Stoop Kid, get off from your porch, he says "No, man, no.
The concrete jungle ain't the kind of place to go make friends
What doesn't kill me's only gonna try again, and again, and again"

But it's such a perfect day
The kids all wanna play
They all say

Stoop Kid's afraid to leave his stoop
Stoop Kid's afraid to leave his stoop
Stoop Kid's afraid to leave his stoop
Stoop Kid's afraid to leave his stoop

One has to wonder how a loner can survive this way
Eats trash, drinks water from a hose, every single day

But I can't walk a mile in his shoes until he's done it first
Stoop Kid, what's the remedy to break this awful curse?

This madness has to end
Don't make me ask again
Until then

Stoop Kid's afraid to leave his stoop
Stoop Kid's afraid to leave his stoop
Stoop Kid's afraid to leave his stoop
Stoop Kid's afraid to leave his stoop

Mr. and Mrs. Stoop Kid were never there
Nobody to raise him right, nobody to care
The stairs he lived his life upon were all that he had
To keep him safe from everyone, the world, so cruel, so sad
But that's all done, you must move on
This madness has to end
Don't make me ask again

Hey everybody!
Stoop Kid's gonna leave his stoop!

Look at Stoop Kid, standing over there with his head held high
Big smile as he's shaking all around, trying not to cry
Let's gather at his feet
As he steps down on the street
I repeat

Stoop Kid's gonna leave his stoop!
Stoop Kid's gonna leave his stoop!
Stoop Kid's gonna leave his stoop!
Stoop Kid's gonna leave his stoop!
Stoop Kid's gonna leave his stoop!
