Beastie Boys - An Open Letter To NYC Lyrics

Align:    
  • Brooklyn, Bronx, Queens and Staten
  • From the Battery to the top of Manhattan
  • Asian, Middle-Eastern and Latin
  • Black, White, New York you make it happen
  • Brownstones, water towers, trees, skyscrapers
  • Writers, prize fighters and Wall Street traders
  • We come together on the subway cars
  • Diversity unified, whoever you are
  • We're doing fine on the One and Nine line
  • On the L we're doin' swell
  • On the number Ten bus we fight and fuss
  • 'Cause we're thorough in the boroughs and that's a must
  • I remember when the Duece was all porno flicks
  • Running home after school to play PIX * 1
  • At lunch I'd go to Blimpies down on Montague Street
  • And hit the Fulton Street Mall for the sneakers on my feet
  • Dear New York I hope you're doing well
  • I know a lot's happen and you've been through hell
  • So, we give thanks for providing a home
  • Through your gates at Ellis Island we passed in droves
  • Brooklyn, Bronx, Queens and Staten
  • From the Battery to the top of Manhattan
  • Asian, Middle-Eastern and Latin
  • Black, White, New York you make it happen
  • The L.I.E. the B.Q.E
  • Hippies at the band shell with the L.S.D.
  • Get my BVD's from VIM
  • You know I'm reppin' Manhattan the best I can
  • Stopped off at Bleeker Bob's got thrown out
  • Sneakin' in at 4:00 am after going out
  • You didn't rob me in the park at Dianna Ross
  • But everybody started looting when the light went off
  • From the South South Bronx on out to Queens Bridge
  • From Hollis Queens right down to Bay Ridge
  • From Castle Hill to the Lower East Side
  • From 1010 WINS to Live At Five
  • Dear New York this is a love letter
  • To you and how you brought us together
  • We can't say enough about all you do
  • 'Cause in the city were ourselves and electric too
  • Brooklyn, Bronx, Queens and Staten
  • From the Battery to the top of Manhattan
  • Asian, Middle-Eastern and Latin
  • Black, White, New York you make it happen
  • Shout out the South Bronx where my mom hails from
  • Right next to High Bridge across from Harlem
  • To the Grand Concourse where my mom and dad met
  • Before they moved on down to the Upper West
  • I see you're still strong after all that's gone on
  • Life long we dedicate this song
  • Just a little something to show some respect
  • To the city that blends and mends and tests
  • Since 911 we're still livin'
  • And lovin' life we've been given
  • Ain't nothing gonna take that away from us
  • Were lookin' pretty and gritty 'cause in the city we trust
  • Dear New York I know a lot has changed
  • 2 towers down but you're still in the game
  • Home to many rejecting know one
  • Accepting peoples of all places, wherever they're from
  • Brooklyn, Bronx, Queens and Staten
  • From the Battery to the top of Manhattan
  • Asian, Middle-Eastern and Latin
  • Black, White, New York you make it happen
