Song Lyrics

(with Tom Scott)

See I flew in from the West Coast

Just the other day.

Yes, I flew in from the West Coast

and we circled J.F.K.

The movie ended and I pulled up the shade,

looked out the window while the Muzak played.

But in my head I`m singin`,

singin` the Brooklyn Blues. Oh, yeah

When you`re growin` up in Brooklyn

the Bridge is like a friend.

Said when you`re growin` up in Brooklyn

that Bridge is sure your friend.

Because that river, looks a hundred miles wide

when all your dreams are on the other side,

and that can start you singin`

singin` the Brooklyn Blues. Oh, yeah

Now I`ve got myself some money

a mansion in Bel-aire.

Yes I`ve spent a lot of money

and I`ve been most everywhere.

But still there`s somethin`

missin` I`ve got to find,

a part of me I must`ve left behind,

that makes a guy start feelin`,

feelin` those Brooklyn Blues. My my.

I`ve sung love songs to a princess

more than once or twice.

I"ve sung rock `n` roll in Paris,

jazz in paradise.

But there`s a song of mine I couldn`t have sung,

a tune I started back when I was young.

Now I`ve come home to finish,

finish my Brooklyn Blues.

My Brooklyn Blues.
