lyrics

Here's to the Brookyln sky,
The red hook in the bait of your pale blue eyes,
The man on the subway, the man on the moon,
The fruit sellers and me you,
Mohammad and Jacob and Jesus
All kicking in the basement,
Playing blue grass tunes,

Come on!

Dust to Dust he's coming soon,
Knock, knock, knock,
Honey, I love you.
Show up or shut up, but stand up straight,
If you've got something,
Say it to my face,

Come on!

Me and the boys on the graveyard shift,
With the lost and the lonely,
The eternally pissed,
No 'Freebird' gonna fly in here,
No, nay, never, no way no more,
No 'Freebird' gonna fly in here
You ask me again,
Roger show you the door,

Now Come on!

Here's to the Brookyln sky,
The red hook in the bait of your pale blue eyes,
The man on the subway, the man on the moon,
The fruit sellers and me you,
Mohammad and Jacob and Jesus
All kicking in the basement,
Playing blue grass tunes,

Here's to the Brookyln sky,
The red hook in the bait of your pale blue eyes,
The man on the subway, the man on the moon,
The fruit sellers and me you,
Mohammad and Jacob and Jesus
All kicking in the basement,
Playing blue grass tunes,

Here's the Brooklyn sky, come on!
