Bruce Springsteen - New York Serenade lyrics

Billy, he's down by the railroad tracks
Sittin' low in the back seat of his Cadillac
Diamond Jackie, she's so intact
As she falls so softly beneath him
Jackie's heels are stacked
Billy's got cleats on his boots
Together they're gonna boogaloo down Broadway and come back home with the loot
It's midnight in Manhattan, this is no time to get cute
It's a mad dog's promenade, so walk tall
Or, baby, don't walk at all

Fish lady, oh, fish lady
Fish lady, she baits them tenement walls
She won't take corner boys
They ain't got no money and they're so easy
I said "Hey, baby, won't you take my hand, walk with me down Broadway
Well, mama, take my arm and move with me down Broadway, yeah"
I'm a young man, I talk it real loud
Yeah, babe, I walk it real proud for you
Ah, so shake it away
So shake away your street life
Shake away your city life
And hook up to the train
Ah, hook up to the night train
Hook it up
Hook up to the train
But I know that she won't take the train, no, she won't take the train
No, she won't take the train, no, she won't take the train
No, she won't take the train, no, she won't take the train
No, she won't take the train, no, she won't take the train
She's afraid them tracks are gonna slow her down
And when she turns, this boy'll be gone
So long
Sometimes, you just gotta walk on, walk on

Hey, vibes man, hey, jazz man, ah, play me a serenade
Any deeper blue and you're playin' in your grave
Save your notes, don't spend 'em on the blues, boy
Save your notes, don't spend 'em on the darlin' yearlin' sharp, boy
Straight for the church note ringin',
Vibes man, sting a trash can
Listen to your junk man
Listen to your junk man
Listen to your junk man
Listen to your junk man
He's singin'
He's singin'
He's singin'
All dressed up in satin, walkin' past the alley
Singin'
Singin'
Singin'
Singin'
Singin'
Singin'
Singin'
