Manhattan Avenue Lyrics

Artist: Nellie McKay
Album: Get Away From Me

send a breeze
a pitbull's yelp
a tender squeeze
a cry for help
make it now
and make it fast
such memories
can never last
I long for the days
music and mayhem
mama's a smilin' friend
in the scuzzy hue of the sunlight
Manhattan avenue

Lionel please
watch o'er our door
the children tease
I beg for more
chipping paint
the ceiling's spent
aw ain't it great
can't make the rent
I long for the days
kittens are meowling
junkies are prowling
deep in the jazzy hue of the streetlight
Manhattan avenue

(instrumental break)

how wild it is
what strange a vice
that a mugger and a child should share the same paradise
oh but dreams come true on
Manhattan avenue
