I came, I saw what manner of beast is this

New York, you talk a little bit left of centre

A scream, a shout
Dm
New York is throwing its weight about


[Bridge 3]

The stronger the wood the straighter the arrow

Dm
Devoted collectors of paraphernalia out walking the rock
Dm
Battle and bitch for the ultimate kitch

Two miniature romans, running on rails
Dm
Appear every hour and bang in the nails
Dm
I've got to have it, Christ, I gotta bet the first
Dm
On your block


[Verse 5]

Em
Disturbing facts about Nazi splinter groups seen on the news
Em
They're picketing synagogues and claiming that Hitler was King of the Jews
Em
Caught in the tunnel an ambulance howls
Em
A men's room attendant is flapping his jowls
N.C.
Sssh, Howard Johnson is moving his bowels.
