New York Song ESL - September 20
New York Song
ESL - September 2010, Woodhaven

G D C G
Once upon a time,
in a faraway land by the sea.
Lived five pretty girls
Pretty as anything you'd ever see

Day after day,
They would wash their long hair in the sea
Five beautiful sisters
They would send their song out to me

CHORUS:
Manhattan Island and Brooklyn and Queens
and Staten Island and the Bronx

Once I heard their song
There's no where else that I'd rather be
So it was not too long
'Til I set sail to that land by the sea

I found my pretty girls
There they were as I'd imagined they'd be
Baking on the sand
Five slices of a Big Apple for me

CHORUS
INSTRUMENTAL
CHORUS

They hugged me to their breasts
Told me that welcome I be
I knew right there and then
That at last I have found me my rest

I know that not one man
Nor one thousand could them posess
I know how it will be
But it's O.K. cause there's one little bite for me.
CHORUS
