Charles and Eddie - N.Y.C



Tekst piosenki:

I was hanging out on Joy's front steps
   It was the summer of love
   We were in New York City
   Vibe was cool with the radio on
   I think it was Sly singing "Que Sera Sera"
   My mother kept saying you're wastin' your life
   Sittin' here watching the world go by
   Why don't you guys get out there and do something
   We did, we became brothers that night
   Sharing our lives over a bottle of Ide's
   But that was fine with me
   There was some kind of riot on the lower
   East Side
   Some rich man shot some homeless guy
   He thought he was being robbed
  
   (chorus)
  
   You can hear him say…
   Can you believe this city
  
   Didn't get much sleep staying out all night
   Soul kitchen was hoppin'
   We'd sneak in the side and dance
   Smash was spinnin' some whack new song
   We was all snappin' hard on his moms
   But he was cool
   That shit was funky
   That shit was funky
   Teachers were quittin' their jobs by the ton
   Every kid in the school was totin' a gun
   And they were just too scared
  
   You can hear them say…
   Can you believe this city
  
   Ran into C on the E train
   Had a brand new copy of Marvin Gaye's
   "Trouble Man" I couldn't help thinkin' coming home that day
   Is it New York City or back to L.A.
