In the Pete St.John song ''Ringsend Rose'' there's a few words which says ''street Arab's grin'' , can anybody shed some light on the meaning of this phrase. ?
Here's the verse it's taken from--thanks

Sweet seventeen, my seamstress queen
She's no bigger than a thimble
Soft satin skin, street Arab's grin
Sure she makes the work looks simple

It's 'officially' defined as - "Literary and old-fashioned a homeless child, living on the streets, esp one who survives by begging and stealing"

A more commonly used meaning is an 'urchin' or gamin
