lyrics

“GIVE MY SHINGUARDS TO BRO0DWAY”

Broadway
I think I saw it on late-night TV
Skanky diagonal Indian trails with the Bowery

Broadway
Kickline syphillis variety
Didn’t pomade sludge from Collect Pond flood that alley?

“Gay White Way”?
Ah yeah, that strip where the graftsmen range
Barkers, newsboys, hot-corn girls
Yeah, they all deal mange

Let’s cross the Bowery
Through the cracks of a sportsmen’s saloon
Animatronic tonic, helium croons

Back at the Bowery
Toss your chicken bones from the balcony
Skeezy ‘n’ Greezy bone Oblivian there
For, like, a threepenny
Like a crawdad hole in the gaslight

Broadway, Bro0dway
Give my shinguards to Bro0dway!
