[Intro] 

C - Em 
C - Em 
C - Em 
C - Em 
              

[Verse]

G                                  Em
They say I'm too young to love you
                         C
I don't know what I need
                              
They think I don't understand
    G                  F         G
The Freedomland of the seventies
                                Em
I think I'm too cool to know ya
                                C
You say I'm like the ice I freeze

I'm churning out novels like
     G           F      Em
Beat poetry on Amphetamines

     C        Em
I say... 
     F
I say...


[Chorus]

         C                  G
Well, my boyfriend's in the band
            F                    C
He plays guitar while I sing Lou Reed
         F              C
I've got feathers in my hair
      F               Em
I get down to Beat poetry
       C                 G
And my jazz collection's rare
       F              C
I can play almost anything
      F          C
I'm a Brooklyn baby
      F          Em
I'm a Brooklyn baby


[Instrumental]

C - Em 
C - Em 


[Verse]

G                                  Em
They say I'm too young to love you
                             C
They say I'm too dumb to see

They judge me like a picture book
       G                F             G
By the colors like they forgot to read
                                  Em
I think we're like fire and water
                                    C
I think we're like the wind and sea

You're burning up, I'm cooling down
       Am   
You're up, I'm down
       Asus2       Em
You're blind, I see
           C      Em
But I'm free
         F
I'm free


[Chorus]

         C                  G
Well, my boyfriend's in the band
            F                    C
He plays guitar while I sing Lou Reed
         F              C
I've got feathers in my hair
      F               Em
I get down to Beat poetry
       C                 G
And my jazz collection's rare
       F              C
I can play almost anything
      F          C
I'm a Brooklyn baby
      F          Em
I'm a Brooklyn baby


[Bridge]

C *                             Em *
I'm talking about my generation
                                G *
Talking about that newer nation

And if you don't like it
        Am *  Bm *  D *       Em *
You can beat it, beat it, baby
C *                              Em *
You never liked the way I said it
                                   G *
If you don't get it, then forget it
                                 Am *  Bm *  D *  (C)
Cause I don't have to fucking explain it


[Chorus]

         C                  G
Well, my boyfriend's in the band
            F                    C
He plays guitar while I sing Lou Reed
         F              C
I've got feathers in my hair
       F                  Em
I get high on hydroponic weed
       C                 G
And my jazz collection's rare
       F              C
I can play almost anything
      F          C
I'm a Brooklyn baby
      F          Em
I'm a Brooklyn baby


[Instrumental]

C - G - F - C - F - C - F - Em


[Chorus]

        C                   G
Yeah my boyfriend's really cool
          F              C
But he's not as cool as me
          F             C
Cause I'm a Brooklyn baby
       F         Em
I'm a Brooklyn baby


[Instrumental]

C - G - F - C - F - C - F - Em


[Outro]

C - Em
